Andrew Leeds Joining NCIS Los Angeles In Recurring Role

He’s Pelant without the pesky murder habit!

Bones vet Andrew Leeds is taking his well-honed computer skills to NCIS: Los Angeles later this season in a significant recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

He’ll play Booker, the team’s newest tech operator who is smart, guarded, focused and curt. His eye for detail is an asset. His OCD? Not so much.

Leeds’ Bones‘ baddie Pelant was an IT instructor-turned-serial hacktivist/killer. His reign of terror on the show came to an end last month, although — as TVLine reported earlier this week — Leeds is set to reprise his signature role in early 2014.


Wow, that’s some news, huh ?? What do you think this will mean for the team / the show ??

    I’ll reserve my opinion for when he actually starts appearing on NCIS LA. Hopefully he wouldn’t take away screen time from any of our beloved cast. As for Bones, I thought Pelant died! Now he’s supposed to reappear on the show???

    Hmmm. We’ll see if Booker turns out to be exactly who he seems. But whether he is or not, I hope this has nothing to do with the rumored departure of a cast member this season.

    I keep hearing “leave well enough alone” and “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” echoing around in my head, hahaha. But at the same time I also know that all our actors are so skilled that whatever new twists are thrown at them, they handle them so well that every new plot line becomes a seamless part of each character. I have noticed especially with Daniela and ECO that what is unspoken is almost as important as what is spoken, and that makes viewing this show, each episode, more than once, a requirement. This is a staple of my week’s viewing without a doubt

    I think its just for a little while. I think it would be fun if Nell takes Kensi’s place for awhile and is partnered with Deeks, while she is on assignment and Booker is going to fill in for Nell.

    The announcement has been made several times in the past that there will be recurring characters. The one that sticks in my mind the most is the actress who played the role of the kid that Kensi identified with. She was supposed to be recurring, and now it’s been a couple of years and no sign of her. Then, there was the actor playing a Comescu who was supposed to be a semi-regular. Hardly any sign of him until he was killed off. To me, a recurring character is Arkady and Janvier. So…we’ll see if they’re right about this one.

    The actress who plays Kensi is pregnant so maybe he will be on it when she is on “assignment”?

    It’s going to be crowded in Ops…maybe Nell will fall for him, which would make for a very grumpy Eric and set up some competition between the two men that might be interesting…I see dueling keyboards in their future with Nell in the middle.

    If Kensi goes off on assignment to Afghanistan, the team will be a person short. Maybe Nell goes out in the field but I can’t see that she will be paired with Deeks, who is LAPD. Nell is most likely to be paired with Sam or Callen as they are the most experienced.

    But then we’ve already seen photos of Sam & Callen undercover as pilots (still partnered together)…who knows what is going to happen, and what Shane Brennan has plotted
