Doctor Grace Confalone returns to the NCIS cast on Tuesday night. The show will also feature new character, Marine Corporal Laney Alimonte.
Actresses Laura San Giacomo and Camryn Grimes are going to be immediately recognizable to television viewers who ever saw an episode of Just Shoot Me! or The Young and the Restless.
The new episode is called Wide Awake and it airs Tuesday night on CBS. According to the network, the NCIS team will investigate Marine Corporal Laney Alimonte (Camryn Grimes) after evidence suggests that she murdered her neighbor while being treated for insomnia by a hypnotherapist.
Meanwhile, “Gibbs befriends his new neighbors after the 9-year-old’s baseball crashes through his window.” Gibbs is played by Mark Harmon, who really reinvented his entire acting career with the Naval drama.
