‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Eric Christian Olsen ‘Hates’ His Job in All-Smiles Photo with Costar

NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen is joking that he “hates” his job in a new photo with his Costar. The actor, who’s played Deeks on the series since season 1, is currently filming season 13 with the rest of the cast.

The photo with Devin Roundtree actor Caleb Castille, Olsen shows off the two’s bright smiles as they work behind the scenes.

“I obviously hate my job and my co-workers,” the actor wrote.

Just because the two are all smiles, they’re definitely hard at work. Season 13 is set to be an action-packed season, with new regulars and with characters making major life changes. For instance, Olsen’s character, Deeks, is trying to have a child with his wife, Kensi Blye, but the two failed to conceive last year.

But the characters Eric Christian Olsen’s costars play also have plenty to do next season. Actors like Gerald McRaney and Linda Hunt, for instance, play a crucial role.

Linda Hunt will Return to ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ For Season 13

Eric Olsen and Caleb Castille may be all smiles right now, but Linda hunt returning to season 13 is enough for us to be all smiles as well. The actress missed season 12 for the most part due to COVID-19. Now, she is back for season 13 and reportedly very excited.

NCIS: Los Angeles season 13 is also going to feature more of Admiral Kilbride than ever. Kilbride actor Gerald McRaney has been promoted to a series regular, meaning he’ll have a bigger role than ever. He joined the cast as a regular after two regulars, Renee Felice Smith and Barrett Foa, left the show after season 12.

With the return of Hetty and the big Presence of Admiral Kilbride, the two are sure to butt heads.

“They’re both very smart and very stubborn, so it makes for a fun and volatile dynamic,” Showrunner R. Scott Gemmill said in an August interview with TV Line. “Kilbride outranks Hetty, but he does respect her, even if he disagrees with her methodology and [sometimes] questions the cost of her successes.”

According to TV Line, one of their conflicts occurs when the mission that made Hetty absent last season goes wrong and Hetty tries to solve it herself. When it winds up involving the entire team, Kilbride gets frustrated.

And on top of Kensi having to deal with her stressful effort to have a child with Deeks, she also has to deal with a serial killer on the loose after a presidential pardon. So there are plenty of high stakes as well as interpersonal conflicts driving the season.

You can catch the season 13 premiere of NCIS: Los Angeles on Sunday, October 10th. And if you cannot get enough of the franchise, NCIS season 19 and NCIS: Hawai’i both premiere on Monday, September 20th.
