To mark its 100th episode, CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans will expose Pride’s ears to a family secret, while filling viewers’ ears with the R&B stylings of a musical guest.
TVLine has learned exclusively that in Episode 100 of the NCIS offshoot, airing Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 10/9c, Stacy Keach will reprise his role as Special Agent Dwayne Pride’s father.
