‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 5 spoilers: Dylan Bruno heads to the franchise (again)

More scoop -How is this for a little bit of an interesting scoop? We’re about to see Dylan Bruno of “Numb3rs” appear on “NCIS: Los Angeles,” but the twist here is that he is playing a different character than he did previously on the flagship series.

According to TV Guide, Bruno will grace the “NCIS” spin-off later on during season 5 in the role of Robert Brown, a one-time intelligence officer with the Army who also has a history with a private contractor in Afghanistan. (Translation: This is a guy who is pretty proficient with both mental and physical combat.) He’s described as being an athletic guy who has most of his life together, and it is for that reason that it will be somewhat of a surprise that his character is on the run from some very dangerous people. The story here is that he supposedly witnessed some war crimes, and these people of course want to eliminate him in order to keep him from talking.

“NCIS: Los Angeles” has been going strong throughout most of the fifth season so far, at least in presenting some very different twists in between Deeks / Kensi, the story that Daniela Ruah is going to be undergoing now, and also standalone missions that have given Callen and Sam some exciting things to do. Let’s just hope that Bruno’s appearance in February will be equally captivating, since this is one of those times during the TV season when you really want to deliver your best work. It’s the February sweeps, and you need something even more exciting if there is competition from the Olympics.
