Vanessa Ferlito Cast As NCIS: New Orleans Series Regular

Ferlito will play FBI Special Agent Tammy Gregorio.

NCIS: New Orleans is getting ready to extend some southern hospitality to Vanessa Ferlito, who will join the cast as a series regular this coming season.

Ferlito is set to play FBI Special Agent Tammy Gregorio, who left New Orleans a decade ago for D.C. The FBI is sending her back to the Crescent City in hopes her local know-how will help her investigate the NCIS team. This by-the-book bureaucrat is also sexy, tough, acerbic, and brings her own way of doing things.

"We're beyond excited to have Vanessa join our show and look forward to adding her distinctive personality and edge to our amazing NCIS: New Orleans cast,” said Executive Producer Brad Kern.

Ferlito's character will be introduced during the Season 3 premiere on Tuesday, September 20 at 10/9c on CBS.

Returning to the CBS family, Ferlito previously appeared on CSI: NY. Her other television credits include Graceland, 24, and The Sopranos. Her film credits include Death Proof, Grindhouse, Spider-Man 2, Stand Up Guys and Madea Goes to Jail.
