Watch out, Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo. There’s a new NCIS: Los Angeles boss in town, and she means business. TV crime procedural fans, rejoice because as of yesterday, actress Nia Long is joining the crew of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Yaass!
Long (Boyz n the Hood, Dear White People) will play Shay Mosley, NCIS’s new executive assistant director. According to CBS, Mosley previously served as a Secret Service agent based in Washington, D.C., and the fictional NCIS higher ups hope her experience on the Hill will bring some more serious east coast vibes to the west coast team… Looking at you, again, DiNozzo.
The Empire actress will make her grand debut on the season nine premiere, Sunday, October 1, at 9:30/8:30 P.M. We can't wait to see her whip our favorite NCIS investigators into shape.
