‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Star Lucas Black Responds to Fans’ Prayers Over Hurricane Ida, Sends His Own

by Joe Rutland

With Hurricane Ida still in their minds, “NCIS: New Orleans” star Lucas Black took to social media and offered prayers to the show’s fans.

Black, who played Senior Field Agent Christopher LaSalle for six of the show’s seven seasons on CBS, shared these words on Twitter. Take a look at what sweet, tender words the actor sent out to the Bayou City.

“NCIS: New Orleans” showed how the agency’s office there would interact with people and situations in New Orleans. The show also highlighted different areas of New Orleans with numerous outside shots.

Scott Bakula starred as Special Agent in Charge Dwayne “King” Cassius Pride. As we said, Black just appeared in the show’s first six seasons. Black left the show to reportedly spend more time with his family. But he also has kept busy in his film career, too.

He’s reprising his role as Sean Boswell in an upcoming new film of the “Fast and Furious” franchise. Boswell rejoins Vin Diesel for “F9,” which is a sequel to the 2017 film “The Fate of the Furious.” Black previously played Boswell in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” which was released in 2006.

‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Was Part of Show’s Franchise on CBS

“NCIS: New Orleans” is a show that people can go back and watch thanks to reruns over and over again. It was part of the “NCIS” franchise while on the air on CBS. Other shows still on the air from that franchise include “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Angeles.” Both of those shows are gearing up for a new fall season, with a twist. “NCIS” will air on Monday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central. That’s a move away from its longtime Tuesday night slot.

That show will be a strong lead-in to another “NCIS” spin-off, “NCIS: Hawai’i” starring Vanessa Lachey. “NCIS: Los Angeles” will air in its Sunday night timeslot at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central.

Hurricane Ida has now left Louisiana in its rear-view mirror. The storm was lowered to tropical storm status as it moved through Mississippi and into Tennessee. New Orleans, its entire metropolitan area, remained without power on Monday.

The city also announced all schools were closed until further notice. Damage from houses losing their roofs and flooding in many different areas remain as part of federal and state officials’ recovery work.

Bakula said that learning to speak with a Cajun accent took time. He said in a 2014 interview with Assignment X that learning it was rewarding work.

“I’d never used it before, and it’s a very unique kind of accent,” Bakula said. “And it’s been mis-accented several times, especially if you talk to the folks down there.”
