(SPOILER) Jonathan Woodward on NCIS tonight. He's guest starring in the episode entitled "Once a Hero".

Aptly titled award goes to..
I don't know gossi, I don't think Jonathan ever really played a hero in the verse.
Sure he did - fallen heroes.
I believe there's a pic of Jonathan from tonight's episode over at his unofficial website which is run by the ever lovely Parrot.
I love it when my two favourite fandoms come together.

OK NCIS isn't a patch on the Jossverse for quality, but it does have David McCallum, a man so dedicated to researching his role, he now doubles as a Forensic Consultant for the show. And can perform autopsies.

Plus, the rest of the cast? Very hot.
Another procedural type show that I've tried to get into without any success.

I think I've seen maybe fifteen to twenty random episodes of this series on FX and I still couldn't tell you anything interesting about the characters. Not a good sign.
I miss Jonathan's beard.
I find it to be a pretty darn fun series, mostly for the chemistry between the cast members. Paulie Perrete is extremely entertaining, and the show makes no effort to be anything but what it is, a well done mystery.

Oh, and not only that, Woodward's Angel character met his deservedly nasty end on TNT's episode this morning!
I adore this man. Not so much these shows I can barely tell apart.

Do you know how much I'd kill for a show starring Nathan Fillion and Jonathan Woodward? And maybe their annoying neighbor Tom Lenk?
Johnathan was semi heroic in the HBO movie 'Wit', ever since I saw that I've been thinking about him differently (he just always seemed a little the same when I thought of Knox, Tracey, and Holden). Thank you for the head's up wissxwe! I've gotten sick of Gilmore Girls and I'm not getting into Standoff (I love Gina but the lead characters are both so ditzy that I can't get into it at all), so I'll enjoy catching NCIS.

Oh Standoff fun, I flip channels and caught Gina, and also Wesley's old girl friend (what's her name, the one who was almost sacrificed on her Father's 50th birthday).

gossi, when did he play a fallen hero?

Holden - vampire from the moment we met him.
Knox - pledged himself to Illyria's evil before we saw him.
Tracey - criminal in the present, coward in the past.
I love NCIS as well. Friend of mine got me hooked on it, it's great. :)

Illya Kuryakin! My very first TV crush!
The funny thing is, I didn't pay any attention to this thread and wouldn't have thought to watch the show, but it was on while I was rewinding the video tape to catch Veronica Mars, - and thought, Is that the guy from Buffy/Angel/Firefly? - and then "Is that David McCallum?"

And speaking of different fandoms coming together, am working my way through DVD collections of Six Feet Under - last week saw the episode with Tom Lenk in a cameo as a pretentious coffeehouse poet, and then this evening two episodes with Michelle Trachtenberg as a Britney Spears-type teen star. (Is that Dawn?)
Illya Kuryakin!

I LOVED that line in first season when someone asked Jethro who (Ducky) thought he was and he answered Illya Kuryakin
