Colin Hanks Lands Key Role in NCIS Season 10 Finale Arc

at . Comments

Colin Hanks will guest star on NCIS next month, and his role sounds like a crucial one.

The 35-year-old actor will appear in NCIS Season 10's final two episodes, May 7 and May 14, as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, and when he first appears, look out.

Executive producer Gary Glasberg describes Parsons as “Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one" and says Hanks will help “make it a truly memorable finale.”

The show returns April 23 with "Berlin," the first of four new episodes to finish off the season. As we saw last night (see our NCIS review of "Chasing Ghosts"), we can expect fireworks.

What role do you think Hanks' character will play in the season-ending drama?

I don't see what was so wrong with Gibbs killing the son of a b that killed his wife and little daughter!!! He was a murderer, a drug dealer, and just a waste of a life...Gibbs did the world a favor by getting rid of the scum bag. When Abby was questioning Gibbs about it...that pissed me off!! She is supposedly close to him...if she was there would have been no would have been ignored. But yeah the writers need to let that skeleton go...11 seasons is enough. It was justifiable... #teamgibbs


Parsons (Colin Hanks) looks like he could be McGee's brother. They even sound alike...I had to do another look to make sure that I knew who was who. Hope Hanks makes a come-back to the series next season!


Hope Gibbs squashes the FBI Agent like a bug. I didn't like him from the beginning. He has got to GO.. Looking forward to seeing Frank again. Love NCIS, Don't mess it up.


I saw the previews. Don't like his character. He better leave Ziva and tony and the rest of Team Gibbs alone


I saw the "Berlin" episode tonight. PLEASE no deaths of the NCIS Team! Everything is going great-don't mess it up! Please let Tony and Ziva's relationship move forward!




So I saw the "Berlin" promo it looks like Ziva in contact with Bodnar. maybe he didn't do it


From the "Berlin" promo, Ziva and Mossad work together to find Bodnar.


Ausiello: If you, as many do, see a resemblance between incoming guest star Colin Hanks and Sean Murray (who plays Agent McGee), Glasberg promises that “absolutely� will be addressed on camera. “There’s a terrific scene in ‘Double Blind,’ which is the penultimate episode, when McGee and Colin (playing a DoD snoop) meet for the first time. And it actually comes up again in the finale as well,� the showrunner shares. “We got a big kick out of it around here!�


My God! Could you stop talking about Criminal Minds?! I swear, you sound like you are married to it! And people complain Tiva fans have an unhealthy obsession...
