NCIS have finally reached 300!
Can you believe that 'NCIS' are about to launch their 300th episode on CBS next week? It's been thirteen years and just as many seasons, and it doesn't seem like there's any chance of waving goodbye to the cast anytime soon as most of them are in it for the longhaul.
Mark Harmon teases new NCIS episode
The cast gathered at a celebration of the crime series' milestone, where each and every episode was represented by a delicious cupcake. No-one could believe that the show had managed this rare feat which remains unaccomplished for so many other TV hits. David McCallum, who plays Dr. Donald Mallard in the series, compares it to when he starred in the 60s crime show 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'.
Since its premiere in 2003, NCIS has become the most popular show on TV. Each week the NCIS crew go and investigate new crime scenes and the viewers can't get enough. As well as consistently delivering watchable storylines, the viewers are invested in the characters.
Despite actors coming and going, the TV program has managed to keep its popularity and has even seen a number of spin-off series.
The cast is helmed by Mark Harmon who plays Leroy Jethro Gibbs and Pauley Perrette's Abby Sciuto is a constant fan favourite. Michael Weatherly who plays Anthony DiNozzo will be leaving the show soon but before he does the cast and crew are celebrating their 300th episode!

Emily Wickersham will join the NCIS cast permanently. The actress was originally slated to appear in three episodes but has been promoted to a series regular.
Emily Wickersham is set to join the cast of NCIS full time, CBS announced yesterday (4th November).
Emily Wickersham has been promoted to a series regular on NCIS.
The actress, who has appeared in such films as I am Number Four and Remember Me, originally filmed three episodes for NCIS. However her character, NSA analyst Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop, has been promoted to a series regular. The show's team were already excited to be working with the actress, as Michael Weatherly (who plays Antony DiNozzo) told Entertainment Weekly: "We're excited about is having Emily join us on these little adventures we do every week and seeing how she is in the world that we create together. I hope the audience likes her as much as we did right away."

'NCIS' has spawned another spin-off series set in New Orleans.
Spin-offs seem to be all the rage this month, with NCIS becoming the latest show to be expanding its franchise. CBS announced they would be expanding their popular NCIS franchise, a show centred on the fictional police branch, the Naval Criminal Investigation Service. The fictional police organisation already has branches in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, but a third New Orleans base will feature in a spin-off series slated to air next spring.
Mark Harmon will be producing the NCIS spin-off.
The original part of the franchise stars Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherley as the two agents; whilst Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J aka Sam Hanna stars in NCIS: Los Angeles. Harmon will act as the executive producer of the series; and the showrunner Gary Glasberg will also have a producer's credit.

NCIS is about to return for its 11th season, but it will be Cote de Pablo's last.
Cote de Pablo's NCIS exit doesn't really concern Mark Harmon. In fact, the top-dog isn't even breaking a sweat, despite commentators labelling the transitional period a bit of a crisis for the CBS crime-drama.
De Pablo's exit came after her eight seasons on the popular show, though it still took CBS bosses - including Les Moonves - by surprise.
Speaking to Latina magazine about her departure, the actress said: "It was not an easy decision, not one taken lightly. I feel like I am leaving my family," she says in the September issue, on newsstands August 13.What I want to say most of all is thank you to the fans and to the people who have been so supportive of me and of the show, who have made the show the great success that it is."

Summer School is a lame and obvious stunt piece, but damn if it doesn't know it. Mark Harmon's a lazy teacher stuck with the worst students in school for summer classes. Eventually he's tasked with getting them to pass The Big Test, only to find that they're completely unmotivated and that one of them is totally illiterate. In fact, his job is on the line if they fail. What happens next is probably familiar to anyone who went to high school in America: The students bargain with the teacher; they'll try hard if he lets them use his car, throw a party in his house, and so on.

Written and directed by Anne De Salvo, this sickeningly saccharine 91 minutes revolves around a supposedly tight-knit, triple-generation family of women. Each character embodies the ultimate in annoying stereotypes, from selfless martyr to irresponsible wanderer. And of course, they each have a male in their life to represent the standard issues of women's liberation from 30 years ago.

Moore is Anna "Liberty" Foster, the 18-year old daughter of the overly protective President of the United States (Mark Harmon). She's in search of a life outside the White House, yet her dad refuses to let her leave home without an entourage of Secret Service agents (in today's world, I can hardly blame him). When her latest date bails on her because the agents are "way to out of control," she demands that her dad grant her some space while on their upcoming trip to Prague. He relents slightly, because unbeknownst to her, he has conveniently found a young secret service agent named Ben Calder (Matthew Goode) to befriend her and watch over her activity.

Dunno if it's a very good book, but it's not a very good movie. While Selleck's acting muscle is always a special treat solo, contending with co-stars Virginia Madsen, Wilford Brimley, and Mark Harmon(!), all in period costume and/or moustaches makes for a very rare juxtaposition of atrocious acting from the school of Schmaltz.

Hitting the nail on the head of mother-daughter relationships -- and doing so with amusing savvy and imaginative good humor -- Disney's "Freaky Friday" remake is such a sublimely fun-for-all matinee delight that it cleansed my palate of the sour taste of every bad movie I've seen this summer.
Yes, it's a live-action Disney family movie -- which has traditionally been enough to send shudders down the spine of anyone over the age of 11. But director Mark S. Waters ("Head Over Heels") eschews the studio's history of pandering triteness in favor of sharp writing, credibly clever characters and terrific performances.
Magnetic Linsday Lohan (whose charm also carried the studio's 1998 "Parent Trap" remake) and a revitalized Jamie Lee Curtis couldn't be more ideally cast as exasperated teenager Annabell Colman and her harried, head-shrinker mom Tess, both of whom are given new insights into their contentious relationship when their bodies are swapped through a fortune-cookie hex.
