According to a new report from the folks over at mobipicker.com, Mark Harmon (above) who plays character Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs in CBS' hit action/drama series "NCIS" might be seeing less screentime in this new, 15th season! They have sources telling them that he currently has declining health in his older age. He's currently 66 years old. For this reason, he may not be involved in much of the action scenes that will be taking place. They also stated that Harmon has gone as far as to tell his wife that the current season 15 could very well be his last season! We don't know if this is officially true. So, we'll classify that as a rumor for now. The last time we saw Harmon in action on the show, his character Agent Gibbs along with Agent McGee were taken hostage by a group of insurgents in the deep jungles of Paraguay. »

The explosion of demand for high-end TV series and the emergence of deep-pocketed new buyers such as Netflix and Amazon has been an enormous windfall for marquee talent. Just ask Robert De Niro, or David Letterman, or Katy Perry.
Stars with brand names are more in demand than ever as dozens of competing outlets search for anything that will help a show stand out from the pack. The new business models that govern streaming services have also had the effect of raising upfront payments to top talent because traditional forms of generating a profit from a hit series — through international sales and off-network syndication — are no longer an option.
Among the winners in the past year on the drama side were Robert De Niro, who is in line to receive an eye-popping $775,00 per episode for the untitled Amazon drama series from director David O. Russell. Other big gainers include “Shameless” stars Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy and »

He’s had a mediocre career really and only had a few films you could call over the top successes. But despite that he remains the type that you like to see in a movie even if it’s a small role. Bakula has stuck to TV for the most part lately since he has a very strong role on NCIS: New Orleans. He’s even in good with Mr. NCIS himself, Leroy Jethro Gibbs. As far as movies go however

Recently, CBS put out a news article on their website revealing that we’re about to see a new female agent join the NCIS crew for the upcoming season 15. It turns out that the show has decided to hire actress Maria Bello to portray an NCIS agent that was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army and served two tours in Afghanistan. Their article didn’t reveal the character’s name. So, I guess we’ll have to wait until later on or until she finally arrives on the show to get that intel. Adding to the character’s description, they said, “After joining NCIS, the character built her reputation as the agency's premier forensic psychologist. Unlike the other agents, she can second-guess and challenge Gibbs. So, there will be friction but also mutual respect. She is a positive force, mischievous and at times, acerbic. They say she will »
