NCIS Season 14 – Casting Call Details on New Female Agent

CBS drama is seeking a “name” actress to play “Tess,” an FBI Special Agent in her late 30s who has recently transferred to D.C. from New York City’s Counter-Terrorism Unit.

Described in the tentative casting breakdown as “quick-witted, sarcastic, shrewd” and “two parts bulldog, one part sweet kitten,” the G-woman can just as easily keep up with a group of politicians talking at a black-tie fundraiser as she can truck drivers at a roadside diner. In her mind, sleep and sex are “overrated” while a good martini and a rare bacon cheeseburger aren’t.

A three-time divorcée (because the husbands apparently “can’t keep up with her”) who has no children, Tess is content acting as “Mamma Bear” to any co-worker who needs a shoulder to lean on. Just don’t make her angry, because that’s when she tends to ruffle even her superiors’ feathers.

    I’m unsure of the expected age of the character, but I have four suggestions for prospects: Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary, Supernatural), Torri Higginson (Stargate Atlantis, TekWar), Tamlyn Tomita (JAG, 24, Eureka), Erica Durance (Smallville, Saving Hope) and Erica Cerra (Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, Rush).
