The Paley Center Honors Ryan Murphy With Inaugural PaleyFest Icon Award

Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck) has booked a guest starring role on NCIS season 11.

Maffia will play "Vera Strickland", an experienced, tough Special Agent who is on the cusp of retirement. And there's a good chance she'll share some history with Gibbs (Mark Harmon).

Expect for Maffia to appear on the CBS procedural in October.

"Roma Maffia is a wonderful actress who fits this role perfectly," executive producer Gary Glasberg tells "Considered 'one of the boys,' her character goes all the way back to NIS and Mike Franks [guest star Muse Watson]. We couldn't be happier to have Roma for this very fun episode."
