NCIS: Hawaii - Alex Tarrant To Star, Enver Gjokaj To Recur

Rising New Zealand actor Alex Tarrant (Night Raiders) has been tapped as a lead opposite Vanessa Lachey in NCIS: Hawai’i, the latest installment in CBS’ formidable NCIS franchise. Enver Gjokaj (Agent Carter) will recur on the series, slated to launch this fall and air in the Monday 10 PM hour behind the Mark Harmon-led mothership series.

Tarrant plays the series regular role of charming local Kai, a new addition to Tennant’s team who boasts the special ability to blend into the island while investigating high-stakes crimes. Kai recently returned home to care for his ailing father and to reconcile with his complicated past. A far cry from his carefree years catching waves and serenading a wahine with his ‘uke, but that’s all in a day’s work for an agent of his caliber.

Gjokaj’s Joe Milius is a high-ranking Navy Captain and commander of Pacific Fleet who is protecting the honor of a dead officer who was piloting a top-secret experimental aircraft that crashed into a cliff. Milius, who maintains the collision was an accident, clashes with Tennant as she takes control of the investigation though he can’t help but respect her ability as a leader.
