announced at the beginning of the year that NCIS Origins was in the works with the network slowly drip-feeding who would be in the cast.

Now, it has been announced that actor Robert Taylor is going to portray younger Gibbs’ (played by Austin Stowell) hard-nosed dad, Jackson Gibbs.

The 60-year-old Australian actor has been playing county sheriff Walt Longmire since 2012, starring opposite Adam Bartley, Katee Sackhoff and Lou Diamond Phillips, to name a few.

In the series, Walt reluctantly returns to work after his wife’s death and it is with help from his friends that he manages to investigate numerous dangerous crimes.

Longmire ran for six seasons, first airing on A&E Network before moving to Netflix in 2015 and finishing two years later.

Going by his IMDb profile, Taylor has another couple of projects also in the works away from the NCIS universe.

Grounded, which is now believed to be completed, is about “a man and his quest for purpose after losing the first two loves of his life”.

The second of the two projects Taylor is working on is Kid Snow which is currently in post-production.

Acting alongside Phoebe Tonkin and Billy Howle, the 1970s drama is about the world of tent boxing in outback Western Australia and “breaking free from the cycle of loss and regret”.

When either of these are going to be released though, hasn’t been announced just yet.

Why did Harry and Meghan make a Netflix series about their life?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have found themselves at the centre of public attention since they took a step back from senior royal duties in 2020.

In a trailer for the Netflix series about them, Prince Harry told viewers that “no one sees what’s happening behind closed doors” in a reference to how their lives may differ from what the public think about the couple. Meghan adds: “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”.

Reports suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could receive up to $100 million for making the show, although this has been disputed and the true figure is unknown.

Taylor isn’t the only new cast member to be joining Origins as Power Book II: Ghost actor Daniel Bellomy will also be in the new drama.

He is going to play Special Agent Granville “Granny” Dawson who is itching to work his way up the ranks to a field agent.

Bellomy is accompanied by Made For Love’s Caleb Martin Foote as lovable “golden boy” Special Agent Benjamin “Randy” Randolf.

NCIS is available to watch on CBS.
