According to Deadline, the actor spoke about finding out something new about his character while filming the episode. He said the following:
“I discovered an aspect of DiNozzo that had never been revealed before, and it truly surprised me. In that scene, I didn’t recognize any Michael Weatherly at all, and very little Tony DiNozzo. It was more like DiNozzo to give Gibbs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation than this thing that he does in the last episode.”
Michael Weatherly has left the world of NCIS behind, but he is willing to return if needed. The actor made that clear in his comments. This likely means DiNozzo will leave happily instead of by tragic circumstances. He teased the following:
“I believe in the franchise of NCIS very much. I would absolutely be open to anything and everything, including things that no one’s even thought of yet. So the long answer is yes.”
CBS fans will not have to miss Michael Weatherly long. The network picked up his pilot, titled Bull, on Friday.
