As the clock approached New Year’s Day, Michael Weatherly of NCIS decided to share some words of wisdom. Weatherly, who previously appeared in the CBS drama Bull for a few seasons, took to Twitter. In this brief message, he offers a few thoughts for those entering 2023. On NCIS, he portrayed Special Agent Tony DiNozzo.
Many fans have speculated about Weatherly’s possible return to NCIS over the years. Well, he appeared to have dropped some major news about this a few weeks ago. It came in the form of a tweet. “So at sushi lunch, the server asked ‘what’s next, Michael?'” Weatherly wrote.
I mentioned a podcast and possibly an indie film, as well as another round of DiNozzo at some point. ‘No-sorry-your what’s next sushi dish?’ she said, staring at me. Humbled, I of course requested jalapeo hamachi. And the money.”
Could Michael Weatherly Really Make A Return To ‘NCIS’?
In the meantime, Weatherly may be hinting at a Bull spinoff. See, the actor happened to be on vacation in Rome. He appears to have been thinking aloud a little. Again, heading out to Twitter, Weatherly wrote, “What would Bull be like in Rome? Well, he’d work near this place”. What court was Weatherly referring to? The Corte Suprema di Cassazione. In other words, the city of Rome’s supreme court. Could you imagine a Bull spinoff taking place in the beautiful city of Rome? Goodness.
In other Michael Weatherly news, the showrunner for NCIS hinted at Weatherly’s possible return at some point. Steven D. Binder discussed the specifics. Binder, for example, stated that he would “absolutely love to do something like that.” But there are some stumbling blocks.
Binder stated that when he last spoke with Weatherly, “he was going to take some time off and rest because he went from a very difficult schedule on ‘NCIS’ to headlining his own show for six years, through C0v1d.” Weatherly will make any decisions regarding DiNozzo’s reappearance on the CBS show. Weatherly, on the other hand, has been known to express his feelings about his time on the show.
With the show’s success comes great wealth. So, how much money did Weatherly make as DiNozzo? It was reported in 2014 that Weatherly earned up to $250,000 per episode. Weatherly appeared in 24 episodes of NCIS during his tenure. All of this adds up to around $6,000,000 during his time on the show.
