Mark Harmon is here to help!
The 71-year-old actor hopes to restart his playing career, most notably as Leroy Jethro Gibbs in the blockbuster cr1me series NCIS, which has been running since 2003.
“Mark has to work hard to find things to do at home,” a source recently told a news newspaper about the award-winning actor, who quit the show in 2021 to focus on other elements of his life and spend more time with his family.
According to the insider: “Mark’s had a good long rest, but he’s a little bored doing the same thing day in and day out and would like to get back to the set in a part-time capacity at the very least.”
As the confidante said, NCIS producers would surely welcome Harmon’s return with open arms: “Of course, bosses are thrilled.” They’ve been attempting to entice him back for some time, and Mark can practically set his own price.”
“It hasn’t been the same show without Mark, who was everyone’s team leader,” added the source, adding how much the Freaky Friday star is sorely missed on set. “They used to make fun of his serious work ethic, prepared lunches, and the fact that he had to complete work in time to go home for supper, but they now miss him so terribly.”
“If anyone can save the show, it’s Mark,” the source added, referring to NCIS’s dramatic loss in popularity during the last few seasons.
Harmon’s comeback to the show has even been teased by his co-stars.
Rocky Carroll told fans earlier this year that they might see their favorite characters return to their television screens — as long as their roles weren’t k1lled off the program, of course.
During an interview in January to commemorate the CBS series’ momentous 450th episode, the 60-year-old, who joined NCIS in Season 5 as Director Leon James Vance, commented on the idea of returning legends.
“I sincerely hope so. I sincerely hope so. Fortunately, I won’t have to figure it out. “But I figure there’s always a chance when a character doesn’t d1e in an episode,” Carroll admitted to TV Insider.
