“NCIS” is getting its money’s worth out of hiring Jamie Bamber in the role of Jake. After a pair of appearances already this season, TVLine confirms that Bishop’s husband will be making at least one more appearance before the season is done.
Are we a fan of this? We’ll say so. We know that Ellie is not everyone’s favorite character on the show, but one thing we do really like is that there is at least one agent who already has their personal life on lockdown, so there is not some romance currently going on. We already have that happening with both Tony and McGee especially, and not having at least one married person in this group would be a little strange. Gibbs has multiple exes, and throwing his romantic history into the mix also adds to the dynamic in its own way.
Meanwhile, the same report also says that Matt Jones will reprise his role as NCIS Special Agent Ned Dorneget for multiple episodes. This will be the first time we have seen the character since season 10, and he was featured in both that season and the one before it, where he got a chance to shine in a few different episodes.
While “NCIS” has been coy to date about the end of the season, we imagine that they may choose to give you more of an action-packed thrill ride this time to close off the season than the more emotional tribute to Ralph Waite that he had last year. Given that a renewal is all but assured and there don’t appear to be any major contract issues, why not give us a big cliffhanger like “NCIS: Los Angeles” did this past season?
From all of us at Jamie Bamber Web, we would like to wish Jamie a Very Happy Birthday!
Jamie’s film will be released on dvd April 14th!
