Who did Austin Majors play on the NCIS cast?
NCIS has had a lot of guest stars over the years, and back in 2006, Austin joined the cast for a troubling episode.
Guest-starring in NCIS Season 3, Episode 19 (called Iced), Austin played the character of Jeremy Hodges, and Seth Adkins played his brother, Sean.
At the very beginning of the episode, the two boys were playing on a frozen pond when they discovered the body of a frozen Marine.
Later, when the NCIS team arrived to investigate, they found three more bodies under the ice, leading to a big mystery about what had taken place.
The boys didn’t get too much screentime on the night, but they did feature in the cold opening before the credits ran.
For fans of the show who want to go back and check out the older episode, it is available for streaming on Paramount+.
