Actor Kurt Yaeger Makes NCIS Franchise History

By Movieguide® Contributor 

In the recent episode titled, “Bread Crumbs,” Kurt Yeager made his guest appearance which makes him the only star to appear in all four NCIS spinoff series.  

Claudia Lyon, CBS’s talent and casting executive VP stated, “Given how long these franchises have been in existence, there will inevitably be some crossover with actors. 

She continued, “We don’t have statistics on how often that happens, but I wouldn’t be surprised. There are many actors out there who do one or two of them. But what makes Kurt unique is that he’s done all four.”. 

Vanessa Lachey who plays Jann Tennant in NCIS: HAWAII posted on her Instagram, “G.I. Jane! Tonight’s NCIS: HAWAII episode is personal. We get to the core of Tennant’s drive and who knew, it’s pretty close to my true life.” 

“In her TV debut @rondakahanawilliams plays Young Jane. I’m so proud of her! @kurtyaeger is my Dad and now he’s officially done ALL 4 NCIS franchise shows! Our fearless leader the talented @levar.burton directed this episode. Don’t miss it TONIGHT! @ncishawaiicbs 9/10c on @cbstv,” she concluded.  

Yeager then responded in the comments section, “Love, love, loved working on my 4th NCIS SHOW and with the amazing team out in Hawaii. What an amazing group of people, the drivers, crew, cast, producers, writers, all lovely and welcoming people. Aloha and Mahalo!!!”
