Another new face is coming to NCIS. On Monday, it was announced that British actor Duane Henry will join the CBS drama as Clayton Reeves. He is set to appear in the last two episodes of Season 13, with the potential to become a series regular in Season 14.
According to TV Line, Henry will portray Clayton Reeves, who is described as “a young man who rose above his blue collar roots to become a successful MI-6 agent.” He is also said to be “offbeat and fun with swagger to spare.” Reeves’ character description also reads, “Behind his steely eyes and a strong, no-nonsense demeanor is a killer smile and a sense of humor to match.”
Furthermore, he possesses confidence and, even though he’s “burned some bridges in the international intelligence community,” Reeves owns his actions and always sets out to do the right thing.
“We think we found something really special in Duane Henry,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg said in a statement. “His unique blend of charm, heart and athletic physicality is going to be a great addition to the mix. Everyone at NCIS is excited to have him join us.”

Well, it sounds like Reeves will fit right in. He even has some of DiNozzo’s qualities, including his good looks, great sense of humor and swagger.
As previously reported, 24 vet Sarah Clarke will also appear in Season 13’s final two episodes, with an option to become a series regular come Season 14. Clarke will play FBI Special Agent Tess Monroe, who is said to be “quick-witted, tough and shrewd.”
NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
