NCIS: New Orleans will stage a Quantum Leap reunion during November Sweeps.
Dean Stockwell has booked a guest-starring role on the CBS procedural, reuniting him with Leap co-star Scott Bakula, EW has learned exclusively.
The Battlestar Galactica alum will play Tom Hamilton, a proud and spirited retired New Orleans cop who still has his wits about him. When confronted by investigators about a murder 40 years ago, he arrogantly pushes back using his knowledge and experience. Tom Hamilton is also the father of Councilman Douglas Hamilton (recurring guest-star Steven Weber).
“We did it!” executive producer Gary Glasberg says. “We found an opportunity for the tremendously talented Dean Stockwell to reunite on-screen with Scott Bakula. What a treat for November sweeps. We are thrilled to have him join us for some Thanksgiving fun and intrigue in NOLA.”
NCIS: New Orleans airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
