Just in case you have been insanely curious to see what’s going on with “NCIS” newcomer Wilmer Valderrama, we like to think that the latest photo below via his official Twitter is some evidence … even if it is not a plot giveaway.
The biggest takeaway that we have from this image is primarily that Wilmer’s character on the CBS show is not going to be altogether different in appearance from himself; he’s not making quite the transition that Pauley Perrette has to in order to play Abby on a daily basis. We would not take this as any sort of definite proof that he is spending a lot of time at the lab, but one thing we are taking away from this photo is that the cast is making him feel welcome. Smiles all around is usually a good sign!
What we know for now about Wilmer’s character is this: He is a man who is coming out of an extensive deep-cover assignment, and as a result of that we’re certainly curious to see what sort of adjustment period he will be mired in. Having to re-adapt to society is never easy, but the good news for him is that in joining this family, he’ll be surrounded by supportive people.
One other thing we’re excited about with him joining this show is that there are some opportunities for humor here and there, and some of his finest work still exists courtesy of the role of Fez on “That 70’s Show.” We’ll see just how much of it he has a chance to bring to the table here. One thing is for sure, he has already said that he is not a replacement for Michael Weatherly, and we like that he is going in with that frame of mind since no one can replace him. We want to see Valderrama bring something new to the show and we think he will.
