'NCIS: LA' spinoff casts Edwin Hodge as first series regular
Deadline reports the young actor will play the witty and tech savvy computer expert Kai Ashe in the potential series that would follow a team of mobile agents solving crimes across the country. The project is expected to be introduced in an episode of "NCIS: LA" airing later this season titled "Red."
Hodge had series regular roles on "Jack & Bobby" and "Mental" and recurring roles on "Invasion," "Boston Public" and the final ABC season of "Cougar Town," as a love interest for Busy Phillips.
He appeared earlier this season on an episode of the original "NCIS" titled "The Namesake." His younger brother, Aldis Hodge, was a regular on TNT's "Leverage" and recurring on "Friday Night Lights."
