‘NCIS’ season 12 spoilers: New details on ‘Supernatural’ alum’s role

More news -As a fan of Jim Beaver’s and most of what he does, we’re pretty glad to see the “Supernatural” alum snagged up a role on “NCIS.”

So who will he be playing? We now have a few more details a couple of weeks after his casting was first revealed. Per a report from TVLine, he will be taking on the role of Captain Tom O’Rourke, a man who becomes very involved in the case of a dead crew member. When you consider that his character is out at sea, it probably should not come as too great of a surprise that this will be the same episode that also features the return of Diane Neal, and the CGIS working alongside the NCIS to get things done.

“NCIS” season 12 premieres come Tuesday, September 23, and with that date not being that far away now, we anticipate getting more and more news on what to expect in the coming days. What we know so far about the premiere is that Gibbs and McGee are each going to have a big role in a case that could have some long-lasting implications for almost everyone on the team. We ultimately still have to find out how all of this unfolds, but are very excited to learn.

Also, let’s hope for some more familiar faces, old and new, popping up throughout the rest of the season.
