On the NCIS episode “Crossing the Line”, while Director Vane (Rocky Carroll) assigns Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) to mentor three high school students at the office, the rest of the NCIS team investigates a man overboard fatality from a Navy destroyer at sea. When Agents Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) meet with Navy Commander Ian Rackham, they’re surprised to hear that the commander thinks the petty officer’s death wasn’t an accident.
Navy Commander Ian Rackham on NCIS is portrayed by Sean Patrick Thomas. He’s known for his roles on Ringer (Solomon Vessida), The District (Detective Temple Page), and in films including Barbershop (Jimmy James), Save the Last Dance (Derek, see link above), and Cruel Intentions (Ronald), among others.
