Days' Leann Hunley Moonlights on NCIS
by Michael Logan February 09, 2010 11:34 AM EST

Gena Rowlands will soon be raising hell on NCIS as Joann, an ex mother-in-law of Mark Harmon’s Gibbs—and that’s good news for Days of Our Lives star Leann Hunley (Anna). The suds queen has been hired to play Joann in flashbacks set during the 1980s. Airing March 2, the retro scenes—which feature Harmon’s own son, Sean, as the younger Gibbs—will explain the bad blood between the two characters. “You see that Joann is very angry at Gibbs for taking her daughter and grandchild away from her when his job is relocated,” Hunley reports. That move led to the murder of Gibbs’ family by a Mexican drug dealer.

The guest-stint was a fantasy come true for the seductive, smoky-voiced Hunley, who has often been likened to Lauren Bacall but always saw herself as more of a Rowlands type. “When I first saw her back in the ’70s in A Woman Under the Influence, I thought, ‘That woman looks like me! She has my eyes!’” Hunley recalls. “Ever since, it’s been my secret little wish that I might play her some day. But, seriously, what were the chances? To have it actually happen is just wild!”

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

Good for Leann! And I totally agree - there is a striking resemblance.

TFP, Ellie! :)

Good for Leann!

Sadly, her talents are being wasted on Days. :(

Thanks Ellie!

I love Leann and I adore Gena Rowlands. GR has weathered the "too old to be a romantic lead" stage in Hollywood. She was gorgeous as a younger woman but now with her natural look, she is just beautiful. She is always a treat to watch.

Good for Leann!

Slightly off topic, but Charles Shaughnessy, aka Shane Donovan was on CSI NY last week. He played the father of a victim who was involved in a vampire cult... Might be able to catch the episode online still at CBS.com.

I've been seeing a lot of old soap stars guest starring on prime time shows. I hope we see more of them!
