    Claire Forlani (Camelot, CSI:NY) was cast today as the "Operations Manager" for NCIS Los Angeles. Linda Hunt's character Hetty currently holds the position, and rumor has it that the season finale airing May 17th will be a cliffhanger that will leave viewers wondering if Hetty will be returning next season!

    Some fan speculation that I saw (I didn't see this speculation from anyone other than fans) is that Hetty could replace Leon Vance as the new director of NCIS - which, quite honestly, would be just fine by me!

    I just hope that Hetty remains in some capacity. I love Linda Hunt, and I think her character is a good one on the show - I'd hate to see her leave entirely.

    I wish they wouldn't have made another NCIS...just like I don't think they should have made another version of Stargate, Star Trek, or CSI. Stupid networks and their quest for the holy grail of tv shows.

    I'm certainly glad they did. I stopped watching the original NCIS after the second episode of the first season, but I really enjoy LA.

    I like Forlani...

    I also would be ok with Hetty getting a promotion. Nothing against Vance, but I would miss Linda Hunt more than I would miss him.

    I have never cared for the Vance character. Hetty with Gibbs would be interesting. Forlani has significant role in "Camelot" but I guess it could be worked out.

    I think they shot at different times of the year... And thats even if she stays on both of the shows long term.

    I could loose vance, hes getting tiresome...

    They certainly appear to have been setting up for Vance to go..

    I think he is the longest serving NCIS Director on the show at this point... so the powers-that-be might be looking for a way to shake things up again.

    Interestingly... Hetty would be the first Director since the original Director that probably wouldn't have some scandal surface that endangers everyone like Vance and his predecessor (Jenny).
