'NCIS' Will Integrate Osama Bin Laden's Death

NCISNext time the camera pans to the most-wanted list on 'NCIS,' expect to see Osama bin Laden's face with a big red X through it.

According to Vulture, the production team of 'NCIS' will digitally add a death notice over bin Laden's face when his picture appears in the background of a scene, as occasionally happens on the military show.

The series has already wrapped shooting, so adding dialogue about the terrorist leader's death was impossible, leaving the CBS series with only a digital option to address the big military news. The nod could happen as early as tonight's episode.

'NCIS' has featured bin Laden on the set's background most-wanted list since the series began in 2003. The rest of the faces on the wall are made up of real-life wanted criminals as well as producers and crew members.

Tell us: Do you think this is a wise move for 'NCIS'?

Just went back and looked at DVR of last nights show. It was a little hard to tell but, if bin laden's picture was on the top left of most wanted wall there was a red line through the picture. Hooray for computer graphics!!

Sounds great!! It is refreshing to watch a show that emphisizes patriotism and pride in our country and the men and women that serve and protect us!! NCIS is a really good show, touching on current events and the characters are like real people. Gotta love Abby!!! Any time we can display the capture or death of terrorists, or any enemies of our country, it needs to be done, AND IN BIG BOLD LETTERS!!! Mess with the U.S.A. and we will get you!! No matter how long it may take or how hard it is, WE WILL HUNT YOU DOWN!!!

Go for it! The photo has been seen throughout NCIS' seasons since 2003 so it should be shown with a big red x heck they should put more than that as far as I am concerned.

When I first heard the news of bin Ladins death I fully expected NCIS to show his picture with a red x across it. I would have been disappointed if they didn't.

Every time I see Gibbs I can't quit thinking Fielding Carlisle from Flamingo Road.

Why not add "fake News" with fake tv shows, now youmbasses won't know the real from make believe. This show sucks like the rest of the crap on tv today, nothing but laugh tracks and shows to stear minds into the beeehive mentality

You must make the Yankees proud with all your ranting. You're just an all around bigot . I've read your other posts and they too are also full of your ranting spit.
