Wilmer Valderrama Joins ‘NCIS’ — What Role Is He Playing?

After Michael Weatherly’s exit from “NCIS,” there’s a new guy in town — Wilmer Valderrama!

Valderrama has signed on to the hit CBS show as a series regular. He will take on the role of an agent who once went missing after a field assignment.

Executive Producer Gary Glasberg said in a statement, "Wilmer Valderrama will be able to flex his dramatic, physical and comedic talents in this classic NCIS role. Fans are going to see him like they’ve never seen him before. This is going to be fun. We’re thrilled he’s coming aboard.”

The news comes just two weeks after Wilmer had announced he and Demi Lovato were calling it quits. They were together for almost six years.

Though he may be known most for his role on "That '70s Show,” Valderrama has also appeared on other shows, including "Minority Report,” "Grey’s Anatomy," "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series," and "Raising Hope."
