A Hollywood Heavyweight Was Initially Considered for Gibbs’ Role on NCIS Before Mark Harmon– ‘He Was So Perfect’

NCIS Executive Producer, Charles Floyd Johnson, Spills the Beans: The A-List Star Who Almost Landed the Gibbs Role Before Mark Harmon!”

Charles Floyd Johnson, the executive producer of NCIS, recently disclosed a fascinating tidbit about the casting of the iconic Leroy Gibbs. While Mark Harmon’s portrayal of Gibbs has become synonymous with the series, Johnson revealed that initially, they had contemplated none other than Hollywood heavyweight Harrison Ford for the role.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Johnson reminisced about the casting process, acknowledging that Harrison Ford was a highly regarded choice due to his exceptional suitability for the character. However, in the end, it remained just a fleeting consideration, and Mark Harmon ultimately donned the mantle of Gibbs, solidifying his legacy in the NCIS franchise.

How Would NCIS Be Different With Harrison Ford..?


Gibbs’ Longevity in the Series Could Have Been at Risk, Given Harrison Ford’s Packed Film Schedule

Gibbs, portrayed by Mark Harmon, left NCIS during the 19th season. However, had Harrison Ford taken on the role, his extensive commitments to franchises like Indiana Jones and Star Wars might have led to a shorter stint on the show. Such a scenario could have potentially created an early void in the cast, prompting significant alterations in the storyline and character development throughout the series.

Even though it would be interesting to watch Ford play Gibbs, Harmon managed to make the character a memorable series figure. Harmon might return as Gibbs in NCIS later on, solidifying him as the proper actor for the team leader. While watching Ford play Gibbs in the series would have been entertaining, Harmon appears to have been the ideal pick for the job.
