NCIS Replaces Michael Weatherly with British Male Model as New Team Member


“NCIS” has cast their new team member as a possible replacement for departing favorite Michael Weatherly.

Duane Henry will play Clayton Reeves, an MI-6 agent who comes to Gibbs’s gang for the last two episodes of this season and decides to stick around.
