Vanessa Ferlito Joins Cast of 'NCIS: New Orleans' as an Agent

There's a new NCIS agent on the case!

TV Line reports that Vanessa Ferlito has joined the cast of NCIS: New Orleans as a series regular for the show's third season, which will premiere this fall on CBS.

Ferlito will play a sexy, tough and acerbic FBI Special Agent who is sent to New Orleans from DC to investigate the NCIS team. A by-the-book bureaucrat, she'll bring a new set of protocols, as well as a mysterious past, to New Orleans, which will pit her against the team and the town.

"We're beyond excited to have Vanessa join our show and are look forward to adding her distinctive personality and edge to our amazing NCIS: New Orleans cast," executive producer Brad Kern said in a statement.

Ferlito has previously appeared on Graceland, 24 and The Sopranos, among others.
