'NCIS' star Michael Weatherly 'strips down' tonight's 200th episode, teases the special nod to 'Tiva' -- (PG-13!) EW VIDEO

Even with 200-plus episodes down, Michael Weatherly knows there are still plenty of stories to tell on NCIS. Proof of that lies in the episode airing tonight, which takes the show to a place its never gone before — the land of “what if.”

“The 200th episode is kind of the Jimmy Stewart, It’s a Wonderful Life [episode],” he says. “It’s a treat to do 200 episodes…it’s sort of a photo album. You look at 200 episodes and it’s this collage of the last nine years of your life because you spend 80 or 90 hours a week there, which is really all [the] time [you’re] awake…and you see the haircuts and the weight gain and the aging process.”

But one thing that most definitely hasn’t changed about Weatherly — and his character Tony DiNozzo, for that matter — is his love for having a good time, which always makes his visits to EW HQ that much more fun. So when Weatherly stopped by yesterday, we couldn’t help but have a little fun with him and press him for the scoop on tonight’s episode. (Hint: There’s a very meta mention of Tiva!) Watch the video below for dish on that scene, a little stripping, and Weatherly’s vision for the next 200 episodes. (Hint No. 2: They’ve never done male nudity!)
