'NCIS: LA' spinoff lands its leading lady

Kim RaverCBS's NCIS: Los Angeles spinoff has found its female lead in the form of Kim Raver, a television veteran best known for her roles on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, FOX's 24, and NBC's Third Watch.

She will play Special Agent Paris, the athletic, smart, witty, and bold leader of the mobile Red team who prefers to — and often does — work alone. Not only does she have a degree in forensic science, she has a mindblowing IQ in the 98th percentile and can drive a golf ball 300 yards. Sounds like a useful skill to have while solving Navy-related crimes on the road.

Raver, who has a recurring role on NBC's freshman hit Revolution, was the final actor cast in the untitled spinoff and only became available three weeks ago when Lifetime passed on her drama pilot The Secret Lives of Wives.

Kenneth Mitchell

Kenneth Mitchell of the cancelled CBS series Jericho has also been tapped for a guest starring role in the backdoor pilot for the spinoff, which will air as a two-part episode of NCIS: LA later this season. In a potential recurring role, Mitchell plays the Red team's respected and likable Logistics Officer Danny Gallagher.

Recently promoted to series regular on NCIS: LA, Miguel Ferrer will cross over to the spinoff as a regular on both shows in the established role of NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger. John Corbett, Edwin Hodge, Scott Grimes, and Gillian Alexy round out the cast of the proposed spinoff that will follow a mobile team of agents who must live and work together as they traverse the country solving crimes.

Well, Law & Order had a thousand spin-offs. As did CSI. I can understand why the powers that be in tele-ville would try to make the most of a show (and its progeny). I'd rather see this genre propagate instead of the infestation of reality tv shows.
