While discussing his fitness journey in an interview with People Magazine in 2020, Michael Weatherly revealed that he gained some weight during NCIS season 11. The actor explained that he often relied heavily on handyman services during his wife’s pregnancy and the show’s notoriously busy shooting schedule (via StarryMag). “That’s not an excuse, but the craft service table isn’t filled with a lot of super-healthy options,” he said. “Then you come to work late, there is pizza and Chinese food. you try to be good But while the crew guys are lifting and pushing things, I tended to sit by the trough and keep grazing. That’s my long winded way of saying things escaped me. It reached a turning point. Even the writers joked about Tony having to do a cleaning,” Weatherly continued.
This ultimately led to Weatherly noting that he “split five pants,” which motivated him to hire trainer Juliet Kaska. NCIS is now entering its 20th season with the original cast featuring Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen), Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) and brief appearances from Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard (David McCallum). For fans, hopefully Weatherly will make a comeback one day.
