‘NCIS’ Alum Pauley Perrette Thinks Smash-Hit Movie She Acted In is ‘the Greatest Film Ever Made’

by Joe Rutland

Looking at her career, “NCIS” alum Pauley Perrette called one movie she was in, which was a hit, one of the best in the world.

What? OK, so Perrette, who played Abby Sciuto, the forensic scientist, on “NCIS,” had a role in the film “Almost Famous.”

She made her comments in a 2007 interview with Pop Entertainment.

“That is the greatest film ever made,” Perrette said. “I love that. I’m in that movie for like five seconds, but I’m still just so proud to be a part of it.

“I’m a huge Cameron Crowe fan from Say Anything,” she said. “I can quote that movie from beginning to end. I went in and met Cameron Crowe. It was such a weird day. He’s just so amazing and cool and wonderful and happy and a lovely man. And of course talent. And he’s married to Nancy Wilson [singer/guitarist for rock group Heart], on top of that.”

‘NCIS’ Actress Quite Proud of Her Role In The Russell Crowe-Directed Movie

Needless to say, Perrette was proud of her effort in the movie. “Almost Famous” hit movie screens in 2000 and starred Billy Crudup and Kate Hudson. According to IMDb, “A high-school boy in the early 1970s is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies them on their concert tour.”

This movie was directed and written by Crowe. Perrette played Alice Wisdom in the flick.

These days, the former “NCIS” cast member isn’t involved in the entertainment industry. She has retired from acting, but Perrette still posts occasionally on Twitter.

“NCIS” is right now dealing with the exit of Mark Harmon from the show as an actor. Harmon, who has played Jethro Gibbs since Season 1, is going to work as a producer on the long-running show.

Fans of Show Still Cannot Believe Perrette Is No Longer Among Its Cast Members

Fans of “NCIS” are still shocked that Perrette isn’t part of the show.

They’re not fully convinced that she will not be back. Outsiders, there’s no chance that Perrette returns as she had a falling out with Harmon.

On Reddit, fans were discussing her departure. They also talked about whether or not they believe she’ll return.

A Redditor wrote, “I mean they could write that she called McGee or something without having the actress on. I mean Jimmy mentioned that he plays an online game with Tony.”

Then another Redditor said, “They left it open enough that she could come back but as Pauley Perrette has apparently retired from acting and left on bad terms I don’t really see that happening.” That write also said Perrette made “vague and serious accusations” after her departure.
