CBS announced that it is bringing aboard a new full-time cast member on the hit drama series “NCIS.” Jennifer Esposito, known for her work in feature films including “Crash” and “Summer of Sam” and for TV series such as “Spin City” and “Blue Bloods,” will be introduced in the season premiere Sept. 20.
“Esposito will play NCIS Special Agent Alexandra ‘Alex’ Quinn, an experienced agent who left field work and became an instructor at the Law Enforcement Training Center,” the announcement notes. “Gibbs will lure her back into the field as part of his team, where he will take advantage of her sharp wit, quick mind and immense talent as a federal agent.”
Executive producer Gary Glasberg said in the announcement: “We couldn’t be happier to have Jennifer Esposito joining us for season 14. She embodies everything that we hoped for in the character of Quinn and we can’t wait to have her come be a part of our team.”
