He is also known for his role as the title character of Dr Jason Bull in the drama series Bull.
The 55-year-old actor has also had parts in NCIS parent show JAG, Loving and Dark Angel.
His career spans back to the early 1990s with his role as Cooper Alden in the TV show Loving seeing him appearing across 440 episodes.
Weatherly is not slated to appear in any upcoming projects, according to IMDb, but he has teased a new mysterious project on the horizon and some NCIS fans hoping he will return to the show.
How is NCIS star Michael Weatherly related to Virgin River’s Alexandra Breckenridge?
Fans may also be surprised to learn Weatherly has a famous relative in the form of Alexandra Breckenridge.
Weatherly is Breckenridge’s uncle and godfather as her mother is sister to the NCIS star.
Along with Virgin River, Breckenridge also featured in JAG in an episode from 2004.
Some of her other work has included parts in The Walking Dead, This Is Us, American Horror Story and Love in Store.
She’s had bit parts in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, True Blood, CSI and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
However, Virgin River has catapulted the star firmly into the spotlight with the show already greenlit for season six.
She previously told Connecticut Magazine in 2008 about her famous uncle: “He can commiserate with me about whatever difficulties I’m going through, and he tends to have a lot of really good advice.
“It’s wonderful to have a family member who’s so close, who’s also my godfather.”
With the success of Virgin River, perhaps Weaherley might even make an appearance in the show one day.
Virgin River season 5, part 2 will air on Netflix on November 30
