Nia Long has joined the cast of CBS’ veteran crime drama series NCIS: Los Angeles as a series regular. She will be introduced in the ninth-season premiere on Sunday, October 1. Long will play Shay Mosely, the team’s new executive assistant director.
The character will fill the void left by the death of NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger, played on the show for five seasons by the late Miguel Ferrer, who died in January. As a former Secret Service agent now working for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Mosely is an experienced Washington insider who brings an East Coast style and demeanor to the West Coast team.
