Wilmer Valderrama Believes He'd Be Pretty Good At Solving Crimes After Years Of Practice On NCIS


Wilmer Valderrama thinks that, after six seasons working on “NCIS,” he could hold his own if he had to solve a crime, but only if it fits the outlandish scenarios he’s accustomed to. “I think I could be good at solving crimes, but, unfortunately, I think the crime has to be ridiculously weird and twisted, because that’s the only cases we have on the show. It has to be a weird clown that steals sweaty clothes,” he told Stephen Colbert. “I bet I would be really good at that.”

Some actors have notably channeled an acting job into another career, such as Erik Estrada of “CHiPs” fame, who posted a Tweet in 2016 announcing that he became a reserve police officer in Idaho. Fortunately, we don’t think Valderrama will quit his acting career to become a real-life CSI. He’s got too much going on as Torres, and outside “NCIS,” he’s reprising his role as Fez for “That 90’s Show,” and playing the lead in his dream role in the upcoming Disney+ series “Zorro” (via IMDb.com).
