The Tony DiNozzo's depicter launched a campaign to persuade bosses to let him show off his singing skills in 'NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service'.
Michael Weatherly has launched a campaign to persuade U.S. TV bosses to let him show off his singing skills in a musical episode of hit crime series "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service ". Weatherly, who plays Agent Tony DiNozzo opposite actor Mark Harmon on the series, showcased his musical talents on the "NCIS" soundtrack, and now he's dreaming up plans for the detective pair to sing and dance on the programme.
He tells the New York Post, "If there's a crime show that can get away with it, we're on it... Mark Harmon has done some cowboy singing in the past." But Weatherly admits convincing TV bosses to sign off on the idea has been a challenge: "We have talked about it... there are certain people that think that it would be a disaster."
Michael Weatherly recently told TV Guide about his return to "NCIS", saying "I'm very excited to come back. I have the best job on television and the best character. I have an extremely talented team of folks that I've been working with for a long time who are in negotiations. It's ongoing, but I'm extremely positive."
