Mark Harmon Before He Was Famous

Mark Harmon NCISBefore he started solving crime, it looks like Special Agent Gibbs was actually a star on the football field.

Back in the day, Mark Harmon was rather dapper student attending Harvard High School. After graduating in 1970, he then headed off to UCLA, where he would eventually become quarterback of the football team.

After he hung up his cleats, he turned to acting, and his first role was on the popular primetime soap 'Flamingo Road.' And who else remembers seeing Harmon on the cover of People when he had his brief moment of glory as the Sexiest Man Alive? We can't really imagine Gibbs caring about magazine covers, but for a young Mr. Harmon it was a career-defining highlight. That is, until he appeared in a guest-starring role in 'JAG' that would eventually lead to starring in the CBS hit 'NCIS.'

Check out Harmon's humble beginnings after the jump.

Looking pretty good, right?

My brother played football at USC at the same time Mark was the quarterback at UCLA. I was a 14 year old star struck teenager who thought he was the cutest thing ever. I have fond memories of waiting for my brother in the tunnel at the Coliseum and refusing to leave until Mark came out. Pat Haden was gorgeous as well but Mark was my favorite. As an almost 55 year old, I still find him sexier than ever. Pam Dawber is one lucky woman!

Isnt he in his 80s? He looks pretty good for that old...maybe it is lots of makeup? I remember him on the old Gunsmoke show and then Pettycoat Junction...great to see he is doing so well!

Wow! Years have certainly taken their effect on him. Geez, what on earth is his lifestyle, just look at the ravages of time! How incredible, most extraordinary-to see the impact even with a professional photographer, make up, hair stylist, lighting and who knows photo shop...(It's not as though I' pea green with envy or anything). Pretty obvious he's lived a healthful lifestyle----Mark Harmon I'll never permit myself to be in the same room..What? You found the fountain or youth? Is there a very ugly painting hidden away somewhere? uuuuuuuugggggghhhhhhhhhh>>>>>>>>>
