Buffett to perform on NCIS New Orleans

From Entertainment Weekly “NCIS: New Orleans will feature Jimmy Buffett performance

The men and women of NCIS: New Orleans are about to take a visit to Margaritaville.

EW has learned exclusively that Jimmy Buffett will perform as himself in the season 4 premiere of the Scott Bakula starrer.

“It’s New Orleans, baby! You can’t represent the city properly unless you celebrate music,” says showrunner Brad Kern about Buffet’s appearance. “On top of that, it separates us from the pack and makes our show a little more unique.”

The premiere episode is titled “Rogue Nation” and picks up six weeks after Dwayne Pride’s (Bakula) take-down of the corrupt Mayor Hamilton. Pride remains on probation while his team is monitored by Supervisory Special Agent Paula Boyd (Becky Ann Baker).

Buffett is a regular fixture around the halls of CBS. He’s also played Frank Bama since 2011 on Hawaii Five-0.

NCIS: New Orleans airs at 10 p.m. ET Tuesdays on CBS.

Buffett appears on Hawaii Five-0 on Friday January 13th

Jimmy Buffett will reprise his role as Frank Bama for the CBS show Hawaii Five-0 on Friday January 13th, 2017. Buffett has appeared on three other episodes of Hawaii Five-O (back in November 2011, April 2013, and March 2015).

From CarterMatt.com: “‘Hawaii Five-0’ season 7, episode 13 preview: Masi Oka’s Max says goodbye

Synopsis – “As Max prepares to say goodbye to his Five-0 ohana, they must investigate a murder during a police convention on the Island, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Jan. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Jimmy Buffett returns as Frank Bama.”

Here’s one other bit of irony when it comes to this episode: Buffett was also in the news last year, but for comments that the show could be ending in the near future that turned out to be false. Who knew an episode in January would be so eventful?
