Miguel Ferrer won’t be out of work when his stint on Desperate Housewives comes to an end.

The 56-year-old Puerto Rican-American actor has signed on to appear in a recurring role on CBS’ military drama/crime procedural NCIS: Los Angeles, which stars LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell.

The former Crossing Jordan will play NCIS Assistant Director Allan Granger, a high-ranking federal agency supervisor.

Ferrer, who was a series regular on Lifetime’s drama The Protector earlier this year, is currently appearing on ABC’s Desperate Housewives as Susan Mayer’s (Teri Hatcher) college art teacher.
