Stacy Keach is part of the NCIS: New Orleans cast and plays the part of Cassius Pride, the father of lead character Dwayne Pride. He returns for the October 23 episode of the show, possibly tied to a new crime the team is tasked with solving.

Keach has appeared in a number of episodes of NCIS: New Orleans since 2015. The recurring role of Cassius is an intriguing one, as it typically provides more insight for viewers on Dwayne. That looks to be the case with the new episode of the show as well.
