The CBS procedural “NCIS: Los Angeles,” where Miguel Ferrer played NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger for six seasons before his death last month, plans a tribute to the beloved actor.
Ferrer died Jan. 19 of throat cancer. He was 61.
Deadline.com reports that the tribute will take place during the March 5 episode of the show.
“In the episode, a version of ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ played by Ferrer’s band, the Jenerators, and sung by Ferrer will be heard. (Ferrer was an accomplished drummer before turning to acting). The episode will end with a remembrance title card,” Deadline reports.
Ferrer will appear in the show’s Feb. 19 episode, “Payback,” for which scenes were filmed before his death.
Deadline notes that Ferrer is also due to appear in Showtime’s upcoming reboot of “Twin Peaks,” where he plays FBI forensics expert Albert Rosenfield.
