If you love Kim Raver, know this: the schedule for the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star just got that much busier. The actress is currently in the middle of an arc on “Revolution” as the wife of Giancarlo Esposito’s Neville, but now multiple sources are confirming that she has also signed on in the lead female role for the upcoming “NCIS: Los Angeles” spin-off series, which revolves around a group of mobile agents that live together and travel from case to case.
Raver’s character is named Special Agent Paris, and she seems to be the perfect sort of agent for this role: she is tough, smart, a strong leader, and also extremely athletic. She also happens to be a little bit of a lone wolf, which suggests that she is going to have a hard time finding romance or even letting people into her world at all.
Even though this show has yet to even air its backdoor pilot (which will happen later this year), it still sounds incredibly promising. John Corbett (“Sex and the City”) and Scott Grimes (“ER”) serve as the two leading men, and Miguel Ferrer is going to handle both doing this series and his role on what was originally a spin-off to the original “NCIS.”
There are two additional things that we take from this news as a whole:
1. Is the prognosis now for Raver on “Revolution” very grim? Thankfully, Shonda Rhimes did not kill Teddy off on “Grey’s Anatomy,” so maybe she will return for an episode someday.
2. Are they going to put this show on right after “NCIS: Los Angeles,” and thus make all of Tuesday night into a programming block revolving very much around one singular franchise?
