'NCIS' First Look: Duane Henry Says Reeves' Demons 'Expose His Inner Self' (Exclusive)
NCIS is getting personal.

On Tuesday’s episode, titled “Fake It ‘Til You Make It,” NCIS pulls the curtains back on the personal life of MI6 Officer Clayton Reeves. When a close friend, Melissa Goodman (guest star Samaire Armstrong), gets abducted, he’s forced to declassify to his comrades their connection -- that they met through Alcoholics Anonymous -- in order to help save her. But, as the team gets deeper into the mystery, they soon discover that there may be more to the story than meets the eye: Their prime suspect has his hands on top-secret military intel.

Considering Reeves has been a key member on CBS’ long-running procedural for two seasons now, sometimes good things do come to those who wait. “It was a breath of fresh air,” English actor Duane Henry tells Et of getting the chance to unpack his character. “He’s always been a little bit vulnerable, but this sort of

“It’s not so much that, but…. I’m more what you call a ‘secret weapon,'” the affable English actor corrects with a wink and a laugh. “Pull me out when need be, because you don’t want to overwhelm people with my presence.”

1922 review – bleak, slow-burn Stephen King adaptation burrows under the skin

A lesser-known novella from the bestselling author lands on Netflix with a transformative performance from Thomas Jane and a mounting sense of dread

Another week, another Stephen King adaptation. Following on from The Dark Tower, It and the effectively nasty sex-game-gone-wrong thriller Gerald’s Game, Netflix is quietly launching a brooding take on one of his lesser-known works. The collection Full Dark, No Stars has already spawned two middling movies – Big Driver with Maria Bello and A Good Marriage with Joan Allen – and now, a third novella is hitting the screen with far more distinction.

NCIS introduced Maria Bello as Special Agent Jacqueline "Jack" Sloane, a forensic psychologist from California who has come to DC as a favor to Director Vance, in "Skeleton Crew," in such a way that didn't exactly get her off to the right start with Gibbs (though it was slightly entertaining to watch) and hinted at a past with Vance.

But was it the right way to go about it? Not necessarily, which is why we need to see more of Jack Sloane -- in order to give her a second chance to offset that rocky first impression.
