‘NCIS’: When Might This Character Return..?
“NCIS” is still going strong. With the CBS drama still moving at a breakneck pace on the network, many people are wondering who might return at some point. While many fans would love to see Mark Harmon reprise his role as Agent Gibbs. There are a few other names who could make an appearance at some point in the future. However, some viewers are perplexed when a particular character reappears on the show.
Could Joe Spano make a comeback..? Never, ever say never. To be fair, he has already returned in Season 19, but given the current storylines, another appearance on the broadcast should not be ruled out.
“NCIS” star Mark Harmon
Harmon was a regular on “NCIS” for nearly two decades. His performance as Agent Gibbs was one of the most memorable of anyone on the show. His departure continues to loom large over the show, but with Gary Cole on board, the CBS drama is in good hands.
However, in this industry, success takes time. Harmon is well aware of this and has spoken extensively about it.
“[I’d] be a carpenter,” he told Men’s Journal. I attempted to do so, but I was unable to secure employment.” It took a while. “I enjoyed getting up and doing that in the morning; I enjoyed the drive to work,” Harmon added. It served him well at the time. “For me, it was about materials and doing the right thing,” he continued. If you did it correctly, [the project] will outlast you. I still enjoy [carpentry], and I believe that’s what I would have tried to do if I hadn’t been [acting].”
How It All Began
“I took a job in an ad firm and worked there for about four years,” he added. I was promoted to another ad-based job-a national sales rep position at a shoe company—and spent about seven months as a shoe salesman.”
It was difficult. There is no certainty in this business, and he wasn’t sure if he wanted to commit to acting full-time at first. He also had a passion for carpentry. However, it was not something he enjoyed doing in the same way that he enjoyed acting.
“When I was doing that shoe salesman job,” he concluded. I was returning from Boston and sat next to a 33-year-old who was talking about trying to make a pension at 65. By the time we got on the road, he was on his second martini. He was dissatisfied with his job and was attempting to keep it for another  years. I went home, got in my car, drove out to my workplace, and gave my notice.”
It provided him with a new perspective. He saw what could happen if you don’t do what you love, and it changed everything for him.
