'NCIS' Casts Vanessa Lachey & Two Others For 'Hawaii' Spinoff

Vanessa will star as Jane Tennant, who becomes the first woman to be named special agent in charge of NCIS’ Pearl Harbor office.

Jane is described as a woman who has “thrived in a system that’s pushed back every step of the way through equal parts confidence and strategy. She’s also a mother raising her children mostly on her own and has to balance her duty to her kids and her country.”

Like her character, Vanessa is also the first female to lead an NCIS spinoff series.

Yasmine, known for her role on SWAT, will star as Lucy, the confident junior member of Jane’s team who’s eager to be the first to find evidence, a workaround in the bureaucracy or to tackle a suspect.

Meanwhile, Jason, who is best known for Minority Report and Claws, will play Ernie, the team’s cyber intelligence specialist whose wide-ranging interests also include history, literature and all things Hawaiian.

CBS just recently announced that NCIS: Hawaii will debut later this fall, and this other NCIS spinoff is coming back too.
