Bakula has been in a lot of interesting stuff lately so I'd rather he be in something more original than a procedural, but it'll enhance his recognition which would be best in the long run.
Might never get picked up, the much more interesting idea of "NCIS: RED" didn't

I'm happy for Bakula, but don't think I'll watch. I like the original NCIS, but don't even watch NCIS: LA. Well, I guess if they add other interesting people to the cast then perhaps I'll watch.
I too really iust watch the original NCIS never really got in to NCIS: LA, sure I've seen the odd episode.

I also had the thought that Bakula is gonna have to go back to the day of a more cleancut haircut (like he had on Enterprise) vs. the mop-top that he has been sporting in the recent years. I know that NCIS is a civilian wing & therefore not held to the strict military rules on cleanliness, but it seems like their male agents don't let their hair go long & wild.

The biggest difference though might be that New Orleans is from Mark Harmon and company. Red was from the guy behind Los Angeles.

Actually no, Bellisario left the show over six years ago.

Eric Christian Olsen's lustrous locks would like a word with you:




Though I agree that Bakula will probably rein it in.

Re: Scott Bakula joins NCIS New Orleans set spinoff

Some thing to keep in mind about NCIS: New Orleans:

  • As far as I've read, Shane Brennan, who ran the original NCIS after Bellisario's departure and who now runs NCIS: Los Angeles, is not involved with running the New Orleans show. Current NCIS showrunner Gary Glasburg is alongside Mark Harmon. Also, from my understanding, Harmon doesn't like the LA spinoff.
  • While the New Orleans office will be in New Orleans, they will handle cases and situations from the Texas Pan Handle through Florida. So it is presumably not going to be all New Orleans all the time.

Can't say I disagree with Harmon about NCIS: LA. I'm not a huge fan of it, either. Does the Navy even have much of a presence in LA? San Diego probably would have made more sense. But NCIS: LA seems like more of a spy show than a show about investigators solving Navy/Marine-related crimes.

Looks like Zoe McLellan will be playing Agent Brody. Apparently that leaves just one more role, Agent LaSalle, to be cast.

From my understanding, Bellisario was notorious for rewriting until the last minute, making it difficult for the actors to learn their lines. I suspect that this may even be why Sasha Alexander left after only two years. Eventually, Harmon threatened to walk, so Bellisario was reduced to a producer role and Shane Brennan took over showrunning duties.

They really need to stop reusing actors for multiple roles. NCIS had Bellisario's son, the one who played Mikey Roberts on JAG, on NCIS once. Now they've got Petty Officer Coates as an agent? This is not like Trek or B%, where appliances can fool people (well, some people).

A character named LaSalle? ok, now they're just stereotyping New Orleans.

Re: Scott Bakula joins NCIS New Orleans set spinoff

I'm not a fan of NCIS, it bores me. However NCIS: LA is just weird. It feels like 'The Unit', but instead of secret spy missions out of the country it takes place in LA. Really off to me. I do love the LA offices though, very nice set.
