A pair of familiar faces will cross paths with Gibbs & Co. as CBS’ popular ‘NCIS‘ winds down its seventh season.

For starters, Richard Burgi (aka ‘Desperate Housewives‘ dearly departed Karl) will guest-star in the episode airing May 18 and titled “Patriot Down,” Fancast has learned exclusively. Burgi, who wears the hell out of a fine-tailored suit in many a role, will play the well-to-do father of the prime suspect in an NCIS investigation.

Previously, Fancast scooped that Burgi will also be guesting on ‘Lie to Me’ when the Fox series resumes it season on June 7.

That same May 18th episode will introduce ‘Numb3rs‘ star Dylan Bruno as Lt. Jason Paul Dean, a freelance mercenary with ties to Col. Bell (Robert Patrick).

Finale Dates Revealed: Mark Your Calendar!

Dean, who is described by TVGuide.com as a highly decorated yet dishonorably discharged Army Ranger, will stick around for the May 25 season finale, in which it has been reported Gibbs will need to make a life-changing decision that will impact every member of his team.
