Q: I would like to know more about Michael Weatherly of NCIS. — Alysa Waring, Weed, Calif. A: About to enter his ninth season as Tony DiNozzo on the hit CBS series, Weatherly was born in New York but raised in Fairfield, Conn. His big break came in the ABC daytime serial Loving. He moved to prime time in the short-lived Fox series Significant Others. After a round of movies that included The Last Days of Disco, Weatherly starred in Fox’s Dark Angel with Jessica Alba, to whom he was engaged for a time. NCIS came his way not long after that.
It’s also interesting to note that Weatherly played actor Robert Wagner in the 2004 TV movie The Mystery of Natalie Wood ... and now, he works with Wagner, who has the recurring role of DiNozzo’s father on NCIS. Married in the mid-1990s to actress Amelia Heinle, with whom he has a son, Weatherly is now wed to internist Bojana Jankovic.
