In the 1970s, Gibbs’ NCIS performer made a few appearances on the sitcom Laverne & Shirley and shows like Ozzie’s Girls and Flamingo Road.
What many NCIS fans probably don’t know is that a long time before Harmon came to the series, the star was engaged as a spokesperson for a specific brand to sell beers through television commercials in 1985, explaining the procedures for his elaboration.
At the same time that he was dedicated to selling the aforementioned product, the current star of NCIS, Mark Harmon was the protagonist of a well-known medical drama as St. Elsewhere, where he kept playing Dr. Robert Caldwell from 1983 to early 1986 when his character was killed.
In addition to having many credits for appearing in television series and movies, the NCIS actor was also known in the past for being voted the sexiest man alive in 1986.
Harmon also appeared in The Presidio alongside Sean Connery and Meg Ryan in 1988, as well as Summer School, Stealing Home, and Worth Winning. His second medical drama starred him as Dr. Jack McNeil in Chicago Hope from 1996 to 2000.
He then eventually appeared on the CBS naval justice series JAG, later starring as Special Agent Leroy Gibbs in the crime action drama NCIS, playing the title character from 2003 to present.
