Robert Wagner Cuffed on 'NCIS' as LA Cops Say He's Not a Suspect in Wife's Death

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 21st 2011 8:25AM
Last week the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. announced they are re-examining the drowning death of movie star Natalie Wood. The news led to frenzied speculation as to whether her husband, actor Robert Wagner, would now be named a suspect in her death, which has always been shrouded in mystery.

At a press conference Friday, a sheriff's spokesman told reporters that Wagner is not a suspect. "Her death was ruled an accident, an accidental drowing. And that's what it is. If, at the end of it, our investigation points to something else, then we'll address that."

However, over the last few days CBS viewers could have been forgiven for being rather confused about Wagner's status because he keeps appearing on screen in handcuffs. That's because, in a collision of art and life, the network's been promoting tomorrow night's episode of 'NCIS,' in which his character is accused of murder. After being asked if they'd considered postponing the episode, a CBS source told The Wrap that it "is running as scheduled."

Agent DiNozzo Chats Up Prostitute on 'NCIS' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 7th 2010 5:25AM
Agent DiNozzo Goes Under Cover on 'NCIS'When a prostitute is connected to the death of a Navy officer, the investigators of 'NCIS' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS) enlist Special Agent Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) to go under cover as one of her clients.

"Guess you're not room service, huh?" he says awkwardly, just before she slaps him. (Gulp.) "It's fun to watch," says Holly Snow (Dina Meyer) from a nearby room, recruited by the NCIS gang to relay the perfect call-girl code words into DiNozzo's earpiece.

By the end of the set-up, somebody needs a cold shower.

As the title suggests, what we witnessed going on for much of this episode was not reality, but a 'Masquerade.' If you pay attention to titles, you can have an edge figuring out what's what. Meanwhile, beyond the action, there was more character interaction as 'NCIS' continues to weave a few mystery threads, including M. Allison Hart's fascination with Mr. Gibbs.

Review: NCIS - Jet Lag

ziva_tony_NCIS_jet_lag(S07E13) So there they were in Paris -- Tony and Ziva. The situation was ripe for romance, right? Was NCIS finally going to "go there" and let fans have a Moonlighting moment for their favorite characters?

Not so fast. Before you could say Champs Elysees, the two were boarding a jet at Charles de Gaulle airport to complete an assignment that turned into murder in the air. Fortunately, the mystery on the airliner trumped the one on the ground and made for a good episode.

I had been really looking forward to this episode of NCIS ever since it was announced that Tony's dad -- the original Tony DiNozzo, Sr. -- would be on and played by veteran TV star Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart). Well, it was not a disappointment. Other than the fact that the mystery involving a couple of Saudi princes wasn't very complicated, it was a really good show.

Michael Weatherly on His 'NCIS' TV Dad, Robert Wagner

by Michael Maloney, posted Jan 12th 2010 8:00AM
NCIS Robert Wagner'NCIS' fans know Michael Weatherly as charming goofball/special agent Tony DiNozzo but on the series' 150th episode tonight on CBS, viewers will learn that beneath those jokes lie memories of a painful childhood -- and unresolved feelings towards his father. Robert Wagner (aka R.J.) guest stars as Tony's dad, Anthony Sr.

In a sense, working with Wagner was deja vu all over again for Weatherly; he portrayed the 'Hart to Hart' star and movie heartthrob in 'The Mystery of Natalie Wood', the made for TV movie about Wagner's late movie star wife. Weatherly recently chatted with AOL about sharing air time with the screen legend and gave a preview of the 'NCIS' episode that sheds new light on Tony.

NCIS casts Tony's dad... and he's someone you know

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 3rd 2009 9:33AM
NCIS_Tony_McGeeThere's good casting and then there's great casting. NCIS has had a propensity for great casting when it comes to the father's of the core characters. Michael Nouri has been spot on as Ziva's autocratic Israeli father. Ralph Waite was a surprising, but superb, choice as Jethro's down to earth father.

Now, we've just heard the news that there's another pop coming to NCIS.

If you haven't read about the famous TV star chosen and you don't want to know about it, please, don't read any further. However, if you can handle casting without feeling like the story lines are spoiled, follow after the jump.

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Oct 15th 2009 7:35PM
Bob DylanCBS's hit series 'NCIS' is gearing up for another soundtrack collection, featuring a host of popular artists such as Bob Dylan, Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow and Joss Stone. Due out November 3, the 12-song set also features 'Bitter and Blue,' a new song by 'NCIS' star Michael Weatherly.

As with the first soundtrack, the music will be used in upcoming episodes throughout this season.

Of special note on 'Volume 2' is the track by Bob Dylan. For the first volume, he contributed the song 'Things Have Changed'; but this time around, Dylan's giving the show -- and his fans -- something entirely new. To coincide with the soundtrack's release, the Nov. 3 episode will feature the Dylan original 'California,' which is an unreleased track from the 'Bring It Back Home' sessions.

MacGyver heading to the big screen...still

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 16th 2009 12:06PM
macgyverWhat are the odds that a big screen adaptation of ABC's 1980's hit MacGyver will be a success? Judging by the success-to-failure ratio of TV-to-movies, I'd say it's 50-50 at best. For every The Fugitive, there's The Wild, Wild West. A Mission: Impossible reboot works well enough as a Tom Cruise vehicle, but a live action Speed Racer is an unmitigated disaster. Still, the optimist in me will hope that New Line's MacGyver to the big screen will work. They first mentioned this about a year ago, but it's picked up some traction now.

There's no star attached as yet, but a lot of De Laurentiises -- Dino is exec producer, Raffaellla and Martha are producing for Raffaella Productions. (Giada is sticking to the Food Network.) Fortunately, the series creator, Lee Zlotoff is attached, too.

TV Squad Ten: Primetime stars who started in soaps

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 2nd 2009 2:04PM
MKDid you know that double Oscar winners Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro acted in soap operas? It's true. Many of today's biggest stars honed their craft by doing New York soaps like As the World Turns and Another World. Before she was Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar was Susan Lucci's daughter on All My Children.

Hollywood soaps like Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless also produced stars. Tom Selleck, for instance, was a Y&R hunk before becoming Magnum, P.I. There are a lot of current stars right now on hit shows who were daytime characters just a few years ago. After the jump, we count down the top ten primetime stars who started in soaps.

Overlooked hunks not in the Top 50

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 15th 2008 1:06PM
campbellHunks are in the eye of the beholder apparently. When I read -- drooled -- over the hunks chosen as the 50 Hottest Hunks Ever by our friends at AOL (that's a long time), I couldn't help but wonder about the guys that just missed the cut. I made a list. It was longer than the dozen men listed here, but these were the ones that I wanted included because they make my toes tingle.

Unlike Debra -- nice choices, Deb -- I've refrained from putting pictures of these hunks on my walls, but I sure have followed them from show to show, enjoying every moment when they were forced to take off their shirts or flex their muscles.

Bruce Campbell
Oh, Bruce! He is such a hunk. Remember The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.? He was the epitome of the western hero, looking great in black with a cowboy hat, on a horse. And that killer smile. Now, on Burn Notice, he's sort of an older hunk with the great Tommy Bahama shirts and perpetual five o'clock shadow, but still great looking. And since I was fortunate enough to meet him -- on a set visit -- I can tell you that he's a really an eyeful up close. I'd love to be in his arms any time!

Five reasons why it's cool to like NCIS

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 18th 2008 3:04PM
NCIS trioSomething amazing has happened recently in the TV media: the critics have discovered CBS's stealth ratings champ, NCIS, and it's now cool to come out of the closet and declare your fandom. Articles in USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times have reported the fact that not only is NCIS consistently in the top five of the weekly Nielsen ratings, but it's also a smart, well-acted and compelling TV show.

There are reasons to admire NCIS, and if you haven't been watching, here's five really good reasons to check out the show. I know that before I got coerced into giving NCIS a try, I didn't think I'd like it, but boy, was I wrong.

NCIS: Angel Of Death (season finale)

by Brett Love, posted May 23rd 2007 9:19AM
Lauren Holly(S04E24) CBS has been teasing this episode for a couple weeks now, with promises of secrets being revealed. They did get to the big one, though that was more of a confirmation of what we already expected. Overall though, I think they oversold it. Another case of the promotions department writing checks that the writers aren't cashing.

That feeling of something being incomplete carried over into the rest of the episode as well. It just didn't have the feel of the big season finale. The show set a very high bar with "Twilight" in season two and can't afford to just phone it in like this. Half of this episode could have just been dropped right in the middle of any other episode and it wouldn't have made a difference. That's fine, for episodes 2 through 23, but the big guns have to come out for the first and the last.

NCIS: Trojan Horse

by Brett Love, posted May 9th 2007 9:04AM
mark harmon(S04E23) This was kind of a confusing episode to me. Not that the story was hard to follow, just that it seemed poorly conceived. I thought the case of the week was well done, but kind of out of place. With it being the end of the season, and the plan already in place to make this a two parter, I would have rather seen something that focused in on the big stories.

It almost felt like flipping the channels between two episodes that were running at the same time. The brief phone conversations between Gibbs and Shepard kind of tied the two stories together, but more than anything, they just pointed out that the story of the week was taking up time that could have been spent on La Grenouille. Maybe I'm just a little impatient, having caught a bit of the finale fever, but it just didn't all fit together for me.
