NCIS: Los Angeles Spoilers – Gerald McRaney Has Recurred Since 2014

Regular viewers of NCIS: Los Angeles will recall that McRaney has recurred as Kilbride since 2014. Admiral Hollis Kilbride overseas, counsels, and advises the Los Angeles division of NCIS Special Projects during their undercover operations, and in truth is Henrietta “Hetty” Lange’s (Linda Hunt) superior. He first appeared in the episode “The 3rd Choir” in season six, where an enemy from the past reappeared with a mission to kill Hetty. Hetty and Kibride go way back, even to Vietnam, as she and the late assistant director Owen Grainger (Miguel Ferrer) did.

NCIS: Los Angeles executive producer R. Scott Gemmill is quoted as saying that when an actor the caliber of Gerald McRaney is available to a series, the showrunners want to do everything that they can to ensure he appears as often as possible, and one way to do that is to promote them from recurring to being a regular, meaning McRaney has a better contract as well. McGemmill also said that the character of Admiral Hollis Kilbride has been an esteemed part of the NCIS universe for seven years, and showrunners look forward to viewers being able to see him in many more episodes as a regular player.

With the departure of former NCIS Tech Operator Eric Beale (Barrett Foa) and NCIS Intelligence Analyst and temporary replacement for Hetty, Nell Jones (Reneé Felice Smith), Kilbride, and Hetty, who has returned, will be in the office and running the show. Chris O’Donnell as NCIS Special Agent Grisha Callen, LL Cool J as NCIS Special Agent Sam Hanna, Daniela Ruah as NCIS Special Agent Kensi Deeks, Eric Christian Olsen as NCIS Special Agent Marty Deeks, Medalion Rahimi as NCIS Special Agent Fatima Namazi, and Caleb Castille as NCIS Special Agent Devin Rountree also remain on the series.
