‘Fargo’ will own a piece of Rock

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Celebrity Pipeline - BY JAY BOB­BIN

Q: Will “Fargo” ever come back with an­other sea­son? – Kim Ja­cob, De­Land, Fla.

A: It will, but not un­til early 2020 at the soon­est. That owes to how busy the chief cre­ative force be­hind the FX se­ries, writer-pro­ducer Noah Haw­ley, has been with other projects (in­clud­ing a cou­ple of movies). He and the show’s staff have been work­ing on “Fargo” scripts for Sea­son 4 – which will star Chris Rock as a Kansas City un­der­world king­pin – and film­ing of them should be­gin this fall.

Q: I used to love “JAG,” and now I’m hear­ing about some sort of “JAG” re­union project. What are the de­tails? – Brian Harris, via e-mail

A: It’s go­ing to hap­pen on “NCIS: Los An­ge­les,” over that CBS show’s fi­nal two episodes of the sea­son. On May 12, David James El­liott will resur­face as Capt. Har­mon “Harm” Rabb Jr. in the first of two ap­pear­ances, in which the char­ac­ter teams with NCIS agents Callen and Hanna (Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J) to track down ISIS-af­fil­i­ated villains. That plot will con­tinue on May 19, also bring­ing in Catherine Bell (who’s been star­ring in Hall­mark Chan­nel’s “Good Witch” fran­chise lately) in her for­mer “JAG” role as Lt. Col. Sarah “Mac” MacKen­zie. It turns out that Mac is an old friend of Hetty (Linda Hunt) of “NCIS: Los An­ge­les,” who can use her di­rect help in the case. The orig­i­nal “NCIS” se­ries was, of course, spun off from “JAG” – thus the con­nec­tion.
