‘NCIS’ Star Wilmer Valderrama Has Fans Ready to Run Through a Wall with New Photo

Please allow Wilmer Valderrama to step away from his role on NCIS and be a life motivator.

So, he’s not Nick Torres when he posts on Instagram. He’s the sensitive guy who values the life-affirming sight of a sunrise. Were you up early enough to watch the sun come up this Friday morning?

Check out the post from the NCIS star:

“You can always count on a new day, to do it again.. to do it better, yesterday.. good or bad.. already had its time. What you do for today’s sunrise.. YOU get to architect, so.. set your intentions. Have a better day friend. “

And Valderrama posted a photo of a sunrise to go with his words of wisdom. Check it out:

NCIS Fans, You Can Take Monday Off to Reset, Post Gibbs

NCIS is taking a much-needed break from the airwaves after an emotionally disruptive five episodes to kick off season 19.

And Valderrama’s Torres was having a tough time transitioning to a post-Gibbs NCIS world. The next episode is called False Start. It’ll run Nov. 1. Here’s the plot summary provided by CBS: “NCIS investigates the death of a beloved Navy commander who trained some of the top athletes in the country.”

Torres was having a difficult time letting go of Gibbs (Mark Harmon) as his boss. Will he warm up to Alden Parker (Gary Cole)?

Here’s a photo from CBS as a peak into the next NCIS episode. Does Torres look excited? It’s difficult to tell. He’s been scowling a lot since Bishop left him.

New Guy Parker Is Cool Enough to Love David Bowie

As NCIS fans are well aware, Harmon left the show in episode four, Great Wide Open. He decided to stay in Alaska, where he, McGee and Parker spent a few days, because he finally felt at peace.

But back in Washington, D.C., the team wasn’t taking it well. The first post-Gibbs episode was called Face the Strange. It was a very strange episode. Vance wanted Parker to join the NCIS team. And it seems that Gibbs gave his nod of approval on this move from Alaska.

At first, Parker didn’t want the job. Instead, he preferred to leave the office and head to a Simon and Garfunkel reunion concert. But he stuck around to help with a new case. Originally, the case led the agents to believe someone was a suicide bomber. A body, which had been buried, exploded because of a substance inside his body.

But NCIS wasn’t dealing with terrorists. Rather, the case was more common. It turned out to be about a mobster, who was killing off federal witnesses. The mob’s next target was the court reporter who was recording the testimony.

About that title, Face the Strange. It had a hidden meaning that wasn’t revealed until the end. Parker said his Simon and Garfunkel concert was all a ruse. He’s actually a Bowie guy. Face the Strange is the second line of the chorus for Bowie’s Changes. Going forward, there will be a lot of them on NCIS. But one thing stayed the same. Fans still tuned in without Harmon. The show won the Monday night ratings war.
