CBS’ potential NCIS: LA spinoff has booked another agent.
ER alum Scott Grimes has been tapped to join the ranks of the back-door pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
NCIS: Red revolves around a mobile team of agents forced to live and work together as they crisscross the country solving crimes. The back-door pilot will air in the spring as an episode of NCIS: LA.

Parenthood alum John Corbett will star as analyst Roy Quaid, a former NCIS special agent forced to retire from active service who now works as an analyst. While no longer an active agent, he’s the most experienced investigator working for Red Team, a fact not lost on any other agents.
Grimes, whose credits also include American Dad and an episode of the flagship NCIS drama, will play Dave, a highly capable agent and the team’s forensic specialist who has an eye for clues and a nose for lies.
