Mark Harmon, 72, Looks Completely Different From NCIS Days As Star Seen Out In LA Ahead Of Freaky Friday 2 Casting

MARK Harmon has been spotted out and about, and the NCIS star looked almost unrecognizable ahead of his Freaky Friday 2 role.

The actor, known for playing Leroy Jethro Gibbs on the CBS crime drama, kept it casual amid a major heatwave in Los Angeles.

The NCIS actor donned a red button-down shirt and dark-colored shorts as he headed to grab groceries.

Mark, 72, wore flip-flops and squinted while walking the sunny streets.

He was rocking shaggy grey hair and holding something in his hand.

No one joined him on his trip to celebrity hotspot Erewhon Market.

Mark’s sighting came just days before his casting in Freaky Friday 2 was confirmed.

Disney released the first behind-the-scenes photo from the Freaky Friday 2 set on Monday.

The pic showed Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis sitting in front of their trailers holding hands.

Jamie, 65, held her free hand up in a rock and roll gesture while Lindsay, 37, smiled sweetly.

Filming on the highly-anticipated sequel has begun.

The actresses will reprise their roles as Anna and Tess Coleman.

Few details about the plot have been released at this time.

Fans do know that Anna will have a daughter in the film, as well as a soon-to-be stepdaughter.

“Tess and Anna discover that lightning might indeed strike twice,” the film’s official synopsis reads.

Disney has confirmed that the film will hit theaters in 2025.

Freaky Friday, which grossed $160 million worldwide, was released in 2003.

Jamie, Lindsay, and Mark aren’t the only stars returning to the film.

Chad Michael Murray, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Haley Hudson, Lucille Soong, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rosalind Chao will also reprise their roles.

New cast members, including Julia Butters, Manny Jacinto, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Sophia Hammons, have also been added.

Lindsay and Jamie began teasing a Freaky Friday revival in 2023.

Disney did not announce that a sequel was in the works until March 2024, however.

Freaky Friday 2 will be directed by Nisha Ganatra.

While many fans are simply excited that Freaky Friday 2 is happening, others are eager to see specific stars return to the project.

Chad’s return, in particular, has been a hot topic with fans.

After it was announced that he would appear, several supporters exclaimed on social media, “We won.”

“That’s important for fans,” another wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“Wow, that’s unexpected. I didn’t think he’d come back for a sequel,” a third posted, while a fourth added, “Love to see him back.”

“I”M SO FREAKING HAPPY,” another celebrated.
