Who stars on NCIS: Hawaii cast?

Actress Vanessa Lachey stars as the main character, Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant. We are going to see Tennant in action right away during the premiere episode, which is going to include a pretty flashy entrance at the crime scene that she is called to.

Over the years, Lachey has been a reality TV host (Love Is Blind, Wipeout, Top Chef Jr, Total Request Live for MTV), a star or co-star on TV shows (Call Me Kat, Dads), a television movie star (Once Upon a Main Street, Christmas Unleashed), and a model.

She has also appeared as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars and is the wife of 98 Degrees singer, Nick Lachey.

More names from the NCIS: Hawaii cast list

Noah Mills plays Jesse Boone, one of the other primary characters on NCIS: Hawaii. As previously reported by Monsters & Critics, “Mills will play Jesse, a former big-city homicide detective who’s settled in a new life in Hawaii.”

Mills was recently seen as Nico on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (he was part of the Flag Smashers).


Yasmine Al-Bustami plays Lucy Tara on the NCIS: Hawaii cast. Lucy is the junior member of Tennant’s team. She is described as, “Eager to be the first one to find that key piece of evidence, create a workaround in the bureaucracy, or tackle a suspect down a flight of stairs.”

Al-Bustami was seen on The Originals as Monique Deveraux and The Chosen as Ramah. She has also appeared on episodes of a lot of other shows, including S.W.A.T. and Nashville.

Jason Antoon stars as Ernie Malik. He is the NCIS Cyber Intelligence Specialist for the team and is described as a “polyglot with a keen mind for technology, history, literature and all things Hawaiian.”

Antoon has been seen in the films Music and Lyrics (Greg), Two Weeks Notice (Norman), and Minority Report (Rufus Riley). He was also a co-star of Claws for 30 episodes as Dr. Ken Brickman.

Other names featured on the NCIS: Hawaii cast include Tori Anderson as Kate Whistler, Kian Talan as Alex Tennant, and Alex Tarrant as Kai. The trio of characters will all be featured on the first episode of the show.

Don’t forget to tune in on Monday, September 20 to watch the series premiere of NCIS: Hawaii. New episodes will air in that timeslot each week and the show will follow Season 19 of NCIS.

NCIS: Hawaii airs Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.

Watched the second show. Why do you feel these days that a cast has to be huge.
A person starts to like a show and watching every week IF he feels he knows the
characters. These days, shows have to have too many characters and they have to be
shown all the time. The watcher of the show never gets to feel strongly about any character because they are bombarded with too any all at one time.. Plus if the watch of the show is not familiar with the :stars: then keeping them straight as to who they are playing becomes too
much to bother with. A new show needs to start our slower and fewer and then add on.
The saying LESS IS MORE is very true. New sow are getting to be a turn off.
