For those who thought that Cote de Pablo had killed her acting career last year when she quit her gig as Ziva David in the highly successful NCIS well you ain't seen the last of her yet. The beautiful Cote has been cast as Shirah in "The Dovekeepers" a four-hour CBS miniseries to air next year 2015. Based on the 2011 historical novel of the same name by Alice Hoffman the project is being produced by husband and wife team of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The story follows four extraordinary women whose lives intersect in the fight for survival during the siege of Masada (around 70 AD). The character of Shirah is wise in the ways of magic and medicine is mysterious fiercely independent with uncanny insight and power.

Meanwhile Cote wrapped up filming earlier this year on a film that is in post-production titled "The 33". The movie is based on the real-life events of the 2010 Chilean mining disaster where 33 miners were trapped and originally thought to be dead and never found based purely on the history of the mine. Miraculously all 33 minors were rescued from the mine. Cote plays the wife of one of the minors trapped. According to the Wikipedia page for the movie it is a Chilean film spoken in Spanish. IMDB lists it as a USA made film but makes no mention about the spoken language. One of the chat board threads for the movie says it was shot in English for a wider international audience. Anyway it was filmed in Chile and Columbia between December 2013 and February 2014. Cote's role was filmed during the later Columbian filming in February.
For some reason all my posts about Cote de Pablo or NCIS get big views and are some of my most popular posts on this hardly read blog.
The latest show in the NCIS Franchise (Technically the JAG Franchise) NCIS: New Orleans kicks off this fall on Tuesday 23 Sept 2014 CBS 9:00 PM ET. The show will take the slot following the current mother show NCIS, which means that sister show NCIS: Los Angeles moves to Monday nights. I hope it does well. I plan on watching it and hoping it has a long run, even though I was not real big on the idea of having a third NCIS show when the other two were still super hot.
So far there have been some on-air promos telling that the show is coming. Images in the promo appear to only be stuff from the backdoor pilot that aired during season 11 of NCIS in the two episode Crescent City story (pt1, pt2)
Myka Monday will be replaced next week with Marvel Medieval Maven Madeness. A new feature where I will show images of sexy characters from Marvel Comics... No No No I'm just kidding. Don't worry I will continue with Myka Monday for a while.
