Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on October 8, 2010 0 Comments

This season of NCIS: LA is adding another actor to its list of guest stars, and the lucky pick this time around is Raymond J. Barry.  Lost fans will recognize him as Ray Shephard, Jack’s grandfather, but he’s also been in Born on the Fourth of July, The X-Files, Training Day, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, and Cold Case.

Who’s Barry Playing on NCIS: LA?

Michael Ausiello has reported that Raymond J. Barry will appear in an episode in November.  The character he’ll be playing, Branston Cole, has a connection to Hetty (Linda Hunt).  So what else is known about Cole?  Early descriptions of the character describe him as having been affected by a stroke, which left him without sight and weak.  However, he has a lot of secrets and a past, and “the former secret agent…seems to still enjoy the game of espionage and manipulation, leading his handlers down questionable paths.”  Hopefully this leads the team to learn more about Hetty’s past, a popular topic among the other characters on the show and its fans.

What do you think of this casting?  Are you watching NCIS: LA this season?
