In the NCIS episode “Voices,” while McGee (Sean Murray) and Delilah (Margo Harshman) argue over whether to find out the baby’s gender, the team investigates a bribery and fraud case. An NCIS person of interest is found murdered “after a runner is led to his body by a strange voice.” For this episode, Gibbs’ former mentor, deceased NCIS agent Michael “Mike” Franks reappears. (Franks was killed off in 2011, Season 8.) Last time NCIS fans saw Franks come back was in the 2015 episode “Stop the Bleeding,” when Gibbs was shot by Luke Harris.
Retired Agent Michael Franks is portrayed by Muse Watson. The Louisiana-born actor is known for his roles on Prison Break (Charles Westmoreland, Jr.), in the I Know What You Did Last Summer films (Benjamin Willis aka The Fisherman), and in the 1995 rom-com with Julia Roberts and Dennis Quinn, Something to Talk About (as Hank Corrigan), among others. NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8pm on CBS, right before Bull.
