An upcoming episode of the CBS procedural “NCIS: New Orleans” will include a “Quantum Leap” reunion. EW.com reports that Dean Stockwell will guest-star on an episode during November sweeps.
Stockwell and “NCIS: N.O.” topliner Scott Bakula were the mainstays of the time-travel drama “Quantum Leap,” which had a five-season run on NBC from 1989-1993.
“The ‘Battlestar Galactica’ alum will play Tom Hamilton, a proud and spirited retired New Orleans cop who still has his wits about him,” the story reports. “When confronted by investigators about a murder 40 years ago, he arrogantly pushes back using his knowledge and experience. Tom Hamilton is also the father of Councilman Douglas Hamilton (recurring guest-star Steven Weber).”
Said “NCIS: N.O.” exec producer Gary Glasberg: “We did it! We found an opportunity for the tremendously talented Dean Stockwell to reunite on-screen with Scott Bakula. What a treat for November sweeps. We are thrilled to have him join us for some Thanksgiving fun and intrigue in NOLA.”
