Callen’s Corner: Voice


It captures with the emotion-void moments and the emotion-filled moments.

It captures with the switch from American English to foreign accents that range from Chechen to Romanian, from French to Spanish.

Yes, it is Agent G Callen’s voice.

Though we have thoroughly discussed Callen and languages in the past, it felt time to look into the many facets of that voice that woos the observer and tips the scales for our Los Angeles OSP NCIS Team. Scientists agree that to this day, the human voice cannot be duplicated synthetically; no machine can do what a personality mixed with the bundle of muscles in a larynx can. The human voice is a miracle in itself. And the individuality, color, flavor, and panache a single voice can bring to this life is invaluable. Priceless. A treasure.

Descent 14


Callen normally doesn’t comment unless he has a good reason. But, when he does, and he’s at ease, his voice is a very normal-sounding, male, calm, American voice. He doesn’t have a noticeable accent to other Americans, but a major trait of his voice is the steady tone. It’s a voice that doesn’t easily startle the listener, yet builds trust and shows knowledge.
Callen: “The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man who has no secrets to keep.” (4×09)

Deflection is an art form, and Callen has it down to an exact science. When needed, he can use his cocky voice to transform into the ultimate “Distractionist.”  Sometimes he uses his cocky side to corner the bad guys, and sometimes he puts FBI agents in their places. Other times, he’s just being what we call a brat. One of the most intriguing effects of this humorous deflection system of Callen’s, is that he ends up sounding much younger than his actual age when utilizing this.
Hetty: “When I’m gone, I’m gone. No ceremony, no memorials, and absolutely no bringing of flowers to my grave.”
Callen: “Don’t worry. There will be none of that.”
Hetty: “Good.”
Callen: “From what I hear, Granger is going to have you stuffed in a life-like pose for his office.”
Hetty: “Don’t be cheeky.” (4×02)

SURPRISE: There’s a breathy version of voice that Callen uses when he is caught by surprise. One of the first good examples of this rare G Callen vocal exercise was when he met Michael, Kristen Donnelly’s son, and wondered if he was dad. Rare, simply because Callen isn’t usually surprised.
Eric: “Well, this is weird. According to the military database, there’s no Tracy Keller listed as next of kin.”
Callen: “That’s because the name’s an alias.”
Kensi: “An alias for who?”
Callen: “My ex-wife.” (2×06)

LAUGHING: Callen has plenty of amused moments. How can he not, between his unique ex-Navy SEAL partner and the proper circus that is LAPD Detective Deeks? When there is a laugh on the horizon for Callen, his voice transforms into something that invites one to join in the humor with him. His true chuckles are a delight, and his fake laughs are laughter-eliciting, themselves. I daresay, we like this one.
Lily: “You with SF?”
Sam: “I was with the teams.”
Lily: “So, you’re a SEAL, huh? Got a workout DVD you want to sell me?”
Callen: [laughs] (5×12)

Callen killemall quote

EMOTIONAL: The span of emotional responses we have heard from Callen include a confused voice, a strained voice, and a broken voice, in varying pitches and volume. Some of the instances we’ve heard his emotional voice? Finding that Alina Rostoff had tried to save him, meeting Hannah Lawson, being upset at Kensi after the file Keelson had on him perished in the explosion, realizing he was from Romania, discovering Hetty knew his mother, and seeing the film playback of his father and sister. Hard. Just so hard to hear.
Callen: “I remembered… a woman. My mother. They shot her.” (3×01)

SHOUTING: Besides hearing Callen shout “Federal Agent!” at the bad guys, there are not many situations where we find Callen yelling. If he gets angry enough, he can and will raise his voice. The “shouting match” with Hetty was one that made the earth shake. And, remember the time he raised his voice to challenge Director Vance and, later, Assistant Director Granger? Yes. Let him shout at the bad guys and anyone who deserves it. Just don’t aim it in this direction. His voice can put fear in the heart at this level.
Callen: “He killed our people- OUR PEOPLE!” (3×24… Like the trauma of 3×23 and 3×24? Hear Callen yell it here.)

SINGING: If only, if only. There are only tales of how great a singer Callen is. Long ago, when the team went out for karaoke, Callen beat them at their little competition. The karaoke bar audience allowed to vote was apparently blown away by his nose-holding charm, as well, but who’s counting? The talent is certainly there, it just hasn’t been shared with the adoring fans. If you are wanting to see Callen sing, mention it in the comments.
EXAMPLE (Best We Got, Anyway):
Sam: “I can’t give you anything but love…”
Callen: “Baby!” (4×11)

For your enjoyment, here are some parting clips of love where you can drink in some Callen vocals.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety

Have you ever wondered what is going on in G Callen’s mind before and after he draws his gun? Ever wondered how fast his heart is beating or how sweaty his palms are? Maybe not, simply because our Callen is the best of the best (keeps his cool in all situations), but surely you’ve wondered about his training. Especially in how he handles his gun, Hetty’s guns, and guns he gets off of bad guys.

Fear not, because it’s high time to take a look at how guns are safely handled by our hero.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine

There is so much training that goes into being able to handle a gun safely and effectively; everything from knowing how a gun is put together, to how the mechanisms work in one, to the safety protocols, to laws in different states and countries on guns, to maintenance. The list is more extensive than you might imagine (unless you’re in the military, a police officer, or have your CHL.) Since all of the above is second nature to Callen by now and he barely thinks on any of it and just does it, I will share what small training I’ve had so that us fans can get a glimpse of A FRACTION of the items going through his mind (and his Team’s) when they are drawing their weapon.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine

Safety protocols for using 9mm semiautomatics (and all guns, really) are taught in a small list, usually looking something like this:

  1. Finger off the trigger (until forced to fire)
  2. Keep gun pointed in Position SUL, or down range (obviously, NOT AT ANY PERSON)
  3. Know what the target is
  4. Be aware of what is to the sides and behind the target

One of the items my trainer harped on again and again was the seriousness of keeping your finger off the trigger. I didn’t really understand until my first time of shooting 150 rounds. My arm got tired, I got lazy and occasionally would rest my finger on the trigger while waiting for my target to be reset. This is dangerous because if I were startled, by a loud noise or the like, I might accidentally pull the trigger. Hence, why keeping the gun pointed in the SUL Position is so important. If a gun is fired while not aimed at the target, it needs to be pointing to where it can’t hurt anyone. One of the things I LOVE about Callen and his Team: their fingers are NEVER resting on a trigger. They do this even when they’ve been up all night, or chasing suspects for days–when they are dog tired! Their training, like all who have been in military or law enforcement, was thorough and bred good habits.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine
Two items that both military and law enforcement teaches in training have to do with the nature of bullets. Bullets themselves behave differently, dependent upon size and the type of weapon being shot. But these two things are pretty general when speaking of guns:

  1. Bullets ricochet bad
  2. Bullets go through bodies

Bullets have the potential to ricochet off of anything durable, such as metals and stone. When a bad guy is shooting in a warehouse filled with pipes and cement walls? Yeah, bad situation. Take cover. Those bullets will go in multiple directions when they start ricocheting. No one knows this better than the Team.

Then, remember the time Callen was in the nightclub, undercover as Ivan? He came face to face with a hostage situation, and needed to take a shot. What did he do first? Make sure that Deeks wasn’t in his line of fire. (Loved how Deeks handled a similar situation near the end of the case, in that home hallway, too!) Bullets always have the potential to go through the intended target and hit whatever is behind it.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine
Guns require a higher sense of alertness to use skillfully and properly. This can be seen in how intense Callen and the others get when they draw their weapon. They aren’t just about to shoot at the bad guy. They are figuring out what could move into their line of fire from the sides, what’s behind their target, and how to not let their weapon fall into the bad guy’s possession. It takes a lot of focus! Insert applause for the Team here.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine
Lastly, keeping the gun clean goes without saying. How many times have we seen Callen taking apart his gun and cleaning it? Basic reason? When a gun isn’t clean or cared for, there is a good chance it will jam and NOT FIRE when it’s most needed. That would make for a very sad moment. Just imagine that happening to Callen in the middle of a shoot-out situation. Ugh. I shudder at the thought. But, hey. Callen would never let that happen.

Why? Because Callen is the best of the best.

Callen’s Corner: Gun Safety | NCISLA Magazine

P.S. Many deep thanks to NCIS: Los Angeles Consultant Osama Shofani (USMC Ret.) for making sure protocol is followed by the Team. And, for keeping it real in the best ways when the guns come out on-screen. You make this Texan proud.

Callen’s Corner: Callen’s House



The element of G Callen meets the element of something stable in his life for the first time: a house.

Not a home, but definitely the next best thing.

Formally a home belonging to his foster parents of long ago, the Rostoff Family, Hetty procured the house for Callen after Alina’s passing.

Go with us through the poignant images…

We watch him stop and look at the house from the outside, soaking in the moment. Though his stay with the Rostoffs was short, he had lived with this foster-family longer than any other… The familiarity of the key being hidden in the same place seems to bring him some sort of comfort. He opens the door and are able to see the house just as his foster sister Alina left it… And, by the look in his eyes when he steps through the door, it must have been very close to the way his foster parents had kept it. Whether it was the memory of the way it felt beneath his feet or the sound it made, or both, G seems amused when he steps onto the grate in the floor. He recalls Mrs. Rostoff there in the kitchen. She turns around in his memory and gives him a sweet smile. He plays with his “little sister” in another memory. He and Alina look so happy. Callen goes into one of the bedrooms and sits down on the very bed he slept on when he stayed there, years ago. He opens the closet door and runs his fingers over where he had carved his name and the date. More memories flood his mind. And, judging from the half-smile and the look of wonder in his blue eyes, they were good memories.

Callen allowed Hetty to railroad him into buying the house. He could have found a way to get out of it if he’d really wanted to. His accepting the house represented his willingness to attempt staying in one place. Or, as Dr. Nate Getz would add, allowing himself to heal just that much more.

callen house haiku by chrisdaisy


Since coming home? Callen hasn’t purchased much furniture for his home. In fact, it’s sort of bare. He’s never owned much, so he doesn’t see the need for anything but the basics. He sleeps on his bedroll, as he’s done since he moved in three years ago. The only form of entertainment in the house is his chessboard, which he leaves on the floor. It may be a slightly sad situation, furnishings-wise, but it has created an opportunity for some great dialog:

G Callen: [a chair catches Callen’s eye] “That’s a nice chair.”
Sam Hanna: “What would you know? You don’t own any furniture.”
G Callen: “Well maybe it’s time I got a chair.”
Sam Hanna: [huffs] “Yeah!”  [clears his throat and looks at the price tag] “$3,700.”
G Callen: “I don’t need a chair.”

[Sam walks into the armory, Deeks and Kensi on his heels.]
Sam Hanna: “Someone broke into Callen’s house last night.”
Kensi: “What?”
Deeks: “Did they steal anything?”
Kensi: “He’s got nothing to steal.”

[Callen unlocks his front door and turns in the light. We get a glimps of his living room for the first time. There’s a single chair, a side table with a few books on,and a tall lamp in the other corner. He walks into the kitchen, throws his keys on the bench and opens the fridge. Beer and a Chinese takeaway box from the previous night can be seen inside. He opens the bottle and throws the bottle top into the sink. He hears a creak.  He closes the fridge and grabs his gun. He walks closer to the living room doorway, until he hears the footsteps. He looks and sees Hetty.]
Hetty: “I like what you’ve done with the place.”
G Callen: “Okay now. If this is about Arkady, I can…”
Hetty: “I would have done the same thing myself. No. This is about you, Mr. Callen. I know that you are looking for answers, but the thing about the past, is just that. It’s the past. Today is what’s important. And, I for one, am glad you’re here. I brought this for you. [Hetty passes a bag to Callen]
G Callen: “What did you buy me, a plant?” [takes it out of the bag]
Hetty: [laughs] “It’s an epiphyte. It’s perfect for you. [Callen sits down on his chair] It doesn’t require soil, you don’t need to water it. It absorbs moisture from the air. It doesn’t even need roots. But they make it more stable.
[Callen looks up at Hetty.  He knows she is referring to him.]

Callen seems to work well with the house, yet he’s always alert and prepared to leave. He’s used to leaving. Something he learned as a child – something not easily overcome. Perhaps this will change when more light is shed on his past and he finds closure?

What do YOU think?

Callen’s Corner: Redacted Files, III


Redacted File 2,741: Did Hetty really think that Callen would fall for the “You go to Camp Pendleton while the others go on a case” trick?

Vicki: We all know Callen is a seasoned agent, one who doesn’t miss a trick. I think the arrival of the Comescus caught Hetty off guard, not giving her much time to organize a better reason to keep him away from the case. She watched him just as he was about to leave, knowing he knew something was up, when he looked up at her. I don’t think it was much of her thinking that she could get him out of the way, rather than hoping.

Mary: I agree, Vicki. I think Hetty “went through the motions” of getting him out of the way because that’s what Granger wanted. She may have actually hoped he would go, but I don’t think she expected it. She not only stood where he could see her, but she gave him one of those ominous looks. (Maybe not the best description for the look.) And, as far as the case, Callen was the bait. She had to have known that by the bloody writing on the wall. So, I’m not sure how determined she was to “stand him down” this time.

Serena: I think Hetty knows that she can’t keep Callen away from anything related to his past, which was why she didn’t really seem too forceful in standing him down, because (I think) she recognizes that he has a right to know. (Good thing, too, otherwise we may be seeing less of Callen in the situation!).

Bee: If Hetty had truly wanted Callen away from the case she would’ve crafted a much better way of getting rid of him. Or, she could’ve kept it away from the whole team and just worked it with Granger, Eric, Nell, and herself.

Richtsje: Oh, indeed, she must have known. I think she knows him better than anyone else, or, even further, I think she is one of the only ones that can see into his intentions and his thoughts. And yes, she did want to keep him safe but she should have tried harder.

Keviana: Did this not count as “trying hard”?

ChrisDaisy: Not for one second, no way!! If Hetty had really wanted to keep Callen from the case, she would have sent him to Washington or to Hawaii or whatever… The “ominous” look she gave him when he left (the very one, Mary) shows that she knew quite well that he was aware something was going on and that he was about to go lone wolf (which I love to watch, btw.) No matter how much Hetty wanted to protect Callen, she knew how important this case would be for G and that there was no way of keeping him from working on it. In my opinion, she just needed to keep up appearances by “trying” to keep him off the case. She was neither surprised nor angry at him when he showed up at the house. As Hetty stated – he IS the case!

———- END REDACTED FILE 2,741 ———-



Redacted File 2,742: Apparently, Hetty did not know about Reznikov… How do you think that Reznikov escaped Hetty’s notice? Or did he?

Keviana: What madness is this? Nothing EVER escapes Hetty’s notice!

Vicki: Remember when Nate was looking through the book that Callen had found in Keelson’s warehouse? Nate would have known if it was Hetty’s handwriting. We now know whose it was. Hetty would have tried hard to search out answers for Callen, but, I now believe, she had no idea about Reznikov. The information she provided Callen towards the end of the episode, was information she had acquired from Arkady Kolcheck. But, I wonder if Arkady knows more than he’s let on. He always seems concerned, when it comes to Callen.

Mary: I was one of those who believed that Hetty had written those addresses in the book. I even thought Nate was acting suspicious, like he knew. But I never could work it out in my head why no one else would recognize their boss’ handwriting. Now we know that she actually did watch him, but that it was NOT her writing. Where am I going with this? I’m not so sure Hetty knows about Callen’s father’s side of the family. But I think Arkady has some more information tucked away.

Serena: Maybe (like father, like son), Reznikov has been extremely good in going off-grid. But yes, nothing seems to escape Hetty’s keen eye so it is a mystery that she doesn’t seem to know about him.

Bee: Somebody’s going to get a mission to go find that body (dead or alive) or face the wrath of Hetty’s letter opener.

Richtsje: Reznikov… Well, Clara never told Hetty, and she had been out of everybody’s sight for some years, I remember. I think no one ever knew about Callen’s real father. This man, which the Comescus posed as Callen’s father, must have done great, too, to keep his identity safe. Still, I wonder who the secret driver/photographer was, and why the picture was taken. Anybody?

Keviana: The driver/photographer may be one more piece of the huge puzzle, Richtsje. We may never know.

ChrisDaisy: Hetty seemed genuine when she told Callen in the beginning that she knows nothing about his father. Could she have really kept another major revelation from him – again? For what reason?? Callen still trusts Hetty despite the things she kept from him in the past, but I am guessing there’s only so much more he can take in this respect… So it might be that Reznikov really escaped Hetty’s notice – as unbelievable as it seems. But then, Clara had disappeared for six years with apparently no one knowing where she was… As Serena said, G can become a ghost and no one – not even Hetty – can find him when he doesn’t want to be found – maybe his mother and father were just like that! Let’s hope for that because Hetty knowing about Reznikov without telling G would be another blow for him.

Vicki: Definitely, ChrisDaisy. It would have been a huge blow had Hetty lied to him when he asked her about his father. And I think you are spot on, with regards to Callen being so good at becoming a ghost. As she has said when he got burned during the Keelson case: “He’ll do what he does best. He’ll become a ghost.” He definitely inherited that trait from at least one of his parents.

———- END REDACTED FILE 2,742 ———-



Redacted File 2,744: If Reznikov owed Callen’s father such a debt, why do you think he didn’t take both children in after their parents died, instead of just watching from afar?

Vicki: Reznikov was the real name for Callen’s Father. The man Vasile Comescu had killed, was a German by the name of Hans Schreiber, who had his name changed to the name the house was listed under. That is a good question, though… Perhaps they had been separated to keep them safe. Listed under their mother’s family name, hoping it would keep them safe. This may explain why Callen doesn’t know his name. Perhaps it was too dangerous for this man to have the children in his care.

Mary: The same question could be asked of Hetty. She watched Callen all those years, yet didn’t take him in. It seemed like Grace (the female orphan-agent) had more of a relationship with Hetty early on. So, I, too, think it was a safety thing. If someone could, in any way, be linked to him, it would have put him in danger. (But it’s still heartbreaking.)

Serena: I, too, wondered the same thing but would assume that it’s because it’s safer for Callen hence the ‘keep-an-eye-from-afar’ thing.

Richtsje: Schriber could have kept both children safe if he, for example, would have taken both children and let them live with his surname instead of with the Callen-name. Sounds so simple i.m.o., so, to me it is also a question that should have been answered in this episode!

ChrisDaisy: I was wondering about that, too… Maybe it was too dangerous for some reason… Or maybe he had the order to just watch and not to act or interfere from Reznikov himself or any other person involved… Did he watch Amy, too? As far as I noticed there were only pictures of Callen in the box, right? I also wondered why Schreiber had the film of G and his family in his possession. I mean, this film was clearly taken during the “happy days” of the Callen family. How did Schreiber acquire it? Did Reznikov give it to him? (Just as a sidenote: Callen watching that film was one of the most touching scenes ever!) As expected this episode opened up a whole bunch of more questions about Callen’s past. I hope we don’t have to wait too long to get more answers (or more questions)!

Vicki: That is a very interesting point there, ChrisDaisy. Why did this man only have photos of Callen and not Amy? And who left the note and flowers on her grave? I bet there are so many more questions flowing through Callen’s mind now.

———- END REDACTED FILE 2,744 ———-



Redacted File 2,747: Obviously, Hetty and Arkady know each other, do you think they have agreed to keep secrets from Callen, for his protection, or perhaps the secrets have to do with them, also?

Vicki: I found that very interesting, that Hetty and Arkady knew each other. Hetty and Arkady are very good at hiding what they really know, so it’s hard to tell. Perhaps it’s a bit of both.

Mary: Hetty knows EVERYONE. Just sayin’. Arkady and Hetty are both “old school.” So their paths probably would have crossed even without G in the picture. But it does seem they have both watched out for him for a while. I agree with Vicki about their ability to hide things. These two have definitely perfected the art of secrecy. So I don’t think they each know what the other knows about Callen.

Serena: I’d say first & foremost for Callen’s protection because that seemed to come across a fair, but it could also be that they’re both somehow involved in those secrets, too.

Bee: I wonder if they were actively keeping the information they knew a secret, or if they didn’t realize it was all connected. How was Arkady to know that a man he smuggled in years earlier was connected to a CIA/NCIS agent he now knows? Or, did I miss something while trying to take everything in? I felt like when Arkady and Hetty sat down, they put all the pieces together with their pooled secrets.

Richtsje: I think they never liked each other and never felt like sharing anything of their own backgrounds. Though Arkady must know that Callen works for Hetty and Hetty obviously knows that Kolcheck is a friend of Callen’s. CIA and KGB never were friends, were they? I thought Arkady was quite shocked when Callen came and showed the picture of the younger Arkady with the other man, not knowing or not suspecting the man could be related to Callen’s real father ever?!

ChrisDaisy: I don’t really believe that Hetty and Arkady have shared secrets when it comes to Callen. They know each other which is not really a surprise in this business, I guess, but their relationship doesn’t seem that close. I think that Bee has a good point in stating that Arkady and Hetty maybe only were able to figure out the bigger picture when they sat together and shared their knowledge. They obviously both care for G, but they both also have kept things from him in the past. I am not sure about Hetty, but I am fairly certain that Arkady still knows more than he admits. And even though I like Arkady, he is definitely one to keep his knowledge to himself and use it to his advantage, if possible – all the more now that Callen owes him one. I like the Arkady-Callen relationship and he was definitely responsible for some of the lighter moments in this otherwise very intense situation – so I am looking forward to his next appearance!

Vicki: Spot on, ChrisDaisy. I totally agree with all you’ve just said.

———- END REDACTED FILE 2,747 ———-



Redacted File 2,750: Dracul and Vasile Comescu were the last two of the Comescu line that had the feud with Callen’s family. Do you think now that they’re dead, another Comescu will be coming for Callen to continue this blood feud, or do you believe that, as Reznikov said, “The debt has been paid”?

Vicki: There was no mention on whether Vasile was killed or just injured from that shot, unless I missed that. They are definitely running out of family members, that’s for sure. A lot of people forgot that there were still some still alive. It’s hard to say, but it’s a blood feud that’s been going on for a very long time, so, who knows, it would seem too easy for it to just go away like that. I think the words of the German were for Callen to pass onto to his father, when he finally meets him. Nothing to do with the Comescus.

Mary: Hmmm. Don’t know. But think we might be done with them. At least as far as the males in the family. I think the debt paid was the fact that Reznikov gave his life for Callen – paying the ultimate price while fulfilling the promise to look out for him. Do I want them all to be dead? Selfishly, not really. It makes for some good angst for our boy. Oh yeah, Vicki. I didn’t catch the name thing until I read your comments on another redacted file. That was the name he assumed to make the Comescu guys think he was Callen’s father.

Serena: It did seem to me a bit anti-climactic the way the Comescus were done away with (if indeed they’re gone for good). The scene where Callen confronted them was done very well, though. (Pulling the gun out from under the BMW was pure genius!) Yet, it just seemed a bit too *easy* the way Vasile was shot. However, if I’m not mistaken, there was no mention of any of the Comescus getting away so it would be a safe assumption that that’s the end of them.

Richtsje: Don’t forget… There is Ilena Vadim. Hunter posed as Ilena and said that she lived in South America and rejected her family for a reason I never got. “The debt has been paid”: I don’t know what Schreiber meant by that. Was he really in a good enough shape to notice that Callen shot all the nasty bad guys? I have not figured anything out about those words.

Bee: Good call, Richtsje, is she going to be relieved or angry that her family is dead? What about the fact that so many of them died by one team’s hand?

Vicki: It wouldn’t surprise me if the blood feud keeps running for longer. It keeps the Team on their toes. Who knows about Ilena Vadim, anything is possible.

ChrisDaisy: I, too, got the impression that that sentence did not refer to the Comescus, but to the fact that Schreiber’s debt to Callen’s father has now been paid. Is Vasile really dead? I think that wasn’t made clear, or was it? The Comescus are such a large family – there surely is someone still alive to continue the blood feud, a few more cousins, maybe… (Good thought with Ilena, Richtsje!) With the story line of Callen and the Comescus having been a central part of Callen’s story, this ending would be too rash in my opinion. There has to be more… And I agree, Serena, G really showed some awesome action in that scene with the Comescus – great fun to watch badass Callen.  Who knows, maybe some remaining Comescus will help Janvier escape from prison… Ok, maybe that last thought is a little too far-fetched – but then again… who knows???
