Image Credit: CBSEarlier this month, we sat down with NCIS‘ Michael Weatherly to chat about his contract negotiations (he was confident he’ll return for season 8, though no deal has yet been announced) and the show’s season 7 finale (May 25). Pressing him for spoilers over a martini, we soon realized, was futile. So, we administered an EW Pop Culture Personality Test, which the actor who plays film buff Tony DiNozzo more than aced. One note: Weatherly got an assist from his doctor wife, Bojana Jankovic, who joined us for our chat and learned a few things she hadn’t known about her husband. Like that in 1991, he acted in a karaoke video.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When do you yell at the TV?
MICHAEL WEATHERLY: Mad Men. Any time Don Draper f—s up. Or Betty decides that she’s gonna have an affair with a stranger in a bar. I’m like, “Nooo! Just because he’s an a–hole, you don’t have to be one!” Or when she goes off with the guy who’s the senator’s aide, and you’re like, “He’s not even handsome. Nooo!” Betty frustrates me. What happens with Mad Men, it’s like an Elvis Costello album, I’ll watch it, and then I immediately have to watch it again. AMC will play it back-to-back. I have a tendency to yell at it when my wife’s not around because if she catches me yelling at Mad Men, then it gets weird. [To Bojana] Is there anything that you catch me yelling at? I love House Hunters International.
BOJANA JANKOVIC: But you don’t yell — oh yeah, we do. When they pick a house that we’re like, “WHAT? They picked that house?” [Both laugh]
MW: And sometimes I’ll yell at The Unsellables, that’s another HGTV show.
You’re an HGTV fan — I never would have known this.
MW: Yeah, but let’s talk about my favorite television shows: 60 Minutes, Cold Case, Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, NCIS:LA, CSI: Miami, CSI, CSI: New York. I’m a big, big fan of Survivor and The Amazing Race. And when I can watch Ghost Whisperer, then Medium, I’m very happy. I only watch Letterman and Craig Ferguson. Do you know Harry Smith on CBS’ Early Show?
That’s definitely worth more money an episode.
MW: Right? Come on. [Laughs] READ FULL STORY
