The NCIS cast is joined by Robert Wagner and Larry Miller for a new episode of the show. The actors play relatives of NCIS team members, though Wagner’s character is related to a former team member.
In the episode called “Bears and Cubs,” airing Tuesday night, March 12, Robert Wagner returns as Anthony DiNozzo, Sr. This is, of course, the father of former Special Agent Tony DiNozzo. He has always been an interesting character on the show.
Actor Larry Miller takes on the role of Ed Slater, returning to the NCIS cast as the father-in-law of Dr. Jimmy Palmer (played by Brian Dietzen).
It’s clearly a family-centric episode of the show, marking an important point in Season 16. It’s also going to put Jimmy in a very difficult position.
DiNozzo, Sr. brings his poker face to the table when he and Ed's father-in-law turn to #NCIS to help with game gone wrong. 🎲 Catch a new episode at 8/7c on @CBS and @CBSAllAccess: https://t.co/uhipJ1STcP pic.twitter.com/Y2usiF2mkm
