NCIS 300th Episode to Feature Taye Diggs in Musical Role

In the landmark hour of TV’s most watched drama (airing March 15), Diggs will play Marine Gunnery Sergeant Aaron Davis, a Special Ops sniper who suffered traumatic injuries and PTSS after an ambush attack in Iraq. For the past six months, Davis has been at Walter Reed Medical Center, facing a slow but effective rehab that includes a cutting-edge music therapy program.

Once a free spirit and a gifted musician, Davis has spiraled into a shell of his former self When Gibbs (Mark Harmon) attempts to reach the wounded warrior, needing as he does an account of the aforementioned ambush to solve a murder.

Of the casting, NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg said in a statement, “For our 300th episode we needed a guest actor who could proudly portray one of our nation’s wounded warriors as well as participate in a very touching musical performance. This emotionally charged role is tailor-made for Taye Diggs and we are so thrilled and honored to have him join us.”
