Guest Star Goodness

It Was So Good To See You (Week of March 26) 

Due to attending WonderCon this past weekend, I am a little behind with the spotlight on interesting guest stars who appeared on some of my favorite weekly TV shows from last week.  But here they are although it is a short list this time around:

Carl Lumbly

Over on NCIS, actor Carl Lumbly made a guest turn as a Naval officer who ended up being suspected by Gibbs and his team, but was later found not to be wholly responsible for weapons being sold to terrorists.  Carl is best known for his role on the popular ABC series Alias, but he has a long resume of TV and film roles including seven years on Cagney and Lacey as well as roles in L.A. Law and the cult-favorite M.A.N.T.I.S.  He has made appearances in other TV shows like Touched By An Angel, The X-Files, Any Day Now, ER, The West Wing, Battlestar Galactica, Chuck, and Criminal Minds.  He has also appeared in the box office films like Pacific Heights and Men of Honor and provided his voice for animated series like Justice League, Black Panther, Superman, and Batman Beyond.

Victor WebsterÂ

Then over on NCIS: Los Angeles, actor Victor Webster appeared as a dangerous thief who Kensi (Daniela Ruah) had to work with undercover.  Victor has recently been seen in a recurring role on Castle, but has also appeared in the TV shows Related, Lincoln Heights, Charmed, Melrose Place, and Harper’s Island.  He has guest starred in shows such as Moonlight, Bones, Reba, Criminal Minds, and Sex and the City.  His made-for-TV movie roles include Killer Hair and Hostile Makeover both with Maggie Lawson and Sands of Oblivion with Morena Baccarin and Adam Baldwin.

Sam Robards

Lastly, there were two appearances of actor Sam Robards (son of legendary actor Jason Robards) last week: in the debut episode of the ABC drama Body of Proof  and on Peabody Award winning drama The Good Wife. Revisit those performances here. Sam has also has a long resume of TV and movie work, including the films American Beauty, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Life as a House and Bounce.  His first break in TV was on the short-lived series called TV 101 (with then unknowns Matt LeBlanc and Teri Polo) but he moved on to Maximum Bob, Spin City, The West Wing, and more recently has been seen in Gossip Girl.  He also appeared in the late 1980’s made-for-TV movie Pancho Barnes with Valerie Bertinelli.
