'NCIS: Los Angeles' Casts Real-Life Moms of Stars
October 08, 2012
We go behind the scenes of NCIS: Los Angeles to give you a sneak peek of this week's episode in which the real-life moms of several cast members actually guest star alongside their famous kids!
The show's creator Shane Brennan said the idea for the unique episode came to him when he met some of the parents on the set. After that, he said writers were tasked with creating "the prefect, script and perfect episode" to bring all the moms together for the episode.
Appearing onscreen are the real-life moms of Chris O'Donnell, LL Cool J, Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen. "I thought it was a joke," explains O'Donnell about first hearing the idea. "Mom was excited when I called her up and told her the news, and said, 'I'm coming, I'll be there.'"
Watch the video to get a glimpse of the moms' acting skills as they deliver lines about the actors as the NCIS team encounters them inside a casino while searching for a suspect. You can watch the full episode of NCIS: Los Angeles tomorrow at 9 p.m. on CBS.
