Radio personality, comedian and actor, Jay Thomas, was born in Texas and grew up in New Orleans (where he still has a house) making him right at home for tonight’s episode of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS.
Last month, Thomas hosted a live comedy hour featuring nine local New Orleans comedians on his radio show, but his character will not be laughing much tonight.
Playing the key witness in the trial of a high-profile arms dealer once apprehended by Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula), Thomas’s character, Marc Maslow, is being escorted by Pride and NCIS Agent, Sonja Percy (Shalita Grant) who travel to Texas to bring Maslow back to The Big Easy.
The arms dealer, Hugo Garza (Alex Fernandez), appears to be behind the bombing of a parked car on a New Orleans street, and a suspect car is caught by a security camera. The victim is Don Lambert (Jonny Sneed), a former Garza associate who was in witness protection.
As Pride, Sonja and Maslow return to the Crescent City, they are ambushed by a gunman in a police uniform and must run for their lives.
NCIS: NEW ORLEANS also stars Lucas Black, Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich, Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell and CCH Pounder. Also guest starring in tonight’s episode, “Confluence,” are Patrick Brennan, Kirsten Nelson, Sharon Conley, Jenny Ballard and Sean Richmond. “Confluence” was written by showrunner, Jeffrey Lieber, and Katherine Beattie and directed by Ed Ornelas.
NCIS: NEW ORLEANS airs on November 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
