For two seasons now NCIS: Los Angeles has been one of the most watched shows not only on CBS but also out of all of the TV shows among the major network dramas. And, since nearly the beginning, it has been understood that Agent Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) has a wife and family; but they have yet to be shown in any episode.
While there has been no clear cut discussion about when his wife and family will make an appearance on the show, I think fans of the NCIS spin-off have been curious about his home life; and for us here at TV Goodness, we were curious. Who should play the part of his wife? This is one of the questions that have been plaguing us this summer hiatus.
With that thought in mind, we came up with some suggestions for the head honchos at CBS to consider; but whether they will take these suggestions and run with them or not will be a different story.
Here, in no particular order, are our suggestions for Mrs. Sam Hanna:
1. Tawny Cypress – Best known for her role in the first season of Heroes, Tawny has also appeared in Rescue Me, Third Watch, All My Children, and the short-lived series K-Ville. She has also made guest appearances in Warehouse 13, Army Wives, Love Monkey, Criminal Intent and Special Victims Unit. She has also appeared in the movies Autumn in New York and World Trade Center.
2. Natashia Williams – She starred in the syndicated series She Spies as well as appearing in the Olsen Twins series So Little Time and the Teen Nick series Romeo! Her guest roles include the TV shows The Parkers, CSI: Miami, The Vampire Diaries and CSI: NY. She has also appeared in the movie Two Can Play That Game.
3. Renee Goldsberry – She is best known for her recent role in The Good Wife as well as her long run on the daytime series One Life to Live. She has had guest appearances in episodes of Royal Pains, White Collar, Providence, Any Day Now at Star Trek: Enterprise.
4. Tempestt Bledsoe – Best known for her role in the popular comedy The Cosby Show, she has appeared in Strong Medicine, Raising the Bar, South of Nowhere, The Replacements and the made-for-TV movie The Wishing Well.
5. Gina Torres – While she is a regular on the new USA Network series Suits, it would still be great to see her in this role. Gina is best known for her role in the cult favorite Firefly and the box office movie Serenity, but she has also appeared in Angel, Cleopatra 2525, Hercules, 24, Huge, Alias and the short-lives series Standoff.
6. Gugu Mbatha-Raw – She got attention in the short-lived series Undercovers and will be seen on box office screens very soon in the Tom Hanks-Julia Roberts led flick Larry Crowne. She is also known for her work in the British series MI-5, Doctor Who and Bonekickers.
