EXCLUSIVE: Miguel Ferrer is getting a major promotion on NCIS: LA. Ferrer, who joined the series as a recurring midway through last season, is being upped to regular effective next fall. He also will be joining the proposed NCIS: LA spinoff, which will start off as an episode of NCIS: LA airing later this season. Ferrer will be regular on both shows, reprising his role as NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger. Crossing over characters from the mothership series to a spinoff is a popular strategy at CBS. NCIS‘ Rocky Carroll, who also plays top NCIS brass in NCIS Director Leon Vance, recurred heavily on NCIS: LA early on. And Kirsten Vangsness juggled both Criminal Minds and its spinoff, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, during the 2010-11 season. Crossing Jordan alum Ferrer is repped by Innovative.

Andrea Parker (Less Than Perfect) and Miguel Ferrer have been cast in recurring roles on the final season of ABC’s Desperate Housewives. Parker will play Jane, a love interest for newly separated Tom Scavo (Doug Savant). Jessica Hecht had been in final negotiations for the role, but I hear the deal unexpectedly fell through at the last minute over scheduling issues. APA-repped Parker, who starts on Tuesday, most recently shot a recurring role in the USA pilot Common Law. Crossing Jordan veteran Ferrer will play Andre Zeller, a renowned and temperamental contemporary artist who is teaching a course at the local college where one of his students is part-time illustrator Susan (Teri Hatcher). Ferrer currently stars in the Lifetime procedural The Protector.
