Scott Bakula's new series NCIS: New Orleans is doing very well tucked in after the ratings juggernaut that is NCIS. Bakula first rose to stardom on the television series Quantum Leap where he starred as Dr. Sam Beckett, a quantum physicist who gets lost in time after an experiment, temporarily taking the places of other people to fix things. Dean Stockwell played Al Calavicci, Sam's best friend, who appeared only as a hologram to help guide him.
Stockwell will be guest starring on NCIS: New Orleans as Tom Hamilton, a retired cop and father of Councilman Douglas Hamilton (Steven Weber). His character is tied up in a decade old homicide that Pride and his team are investigating.
