Brian Dietzen is a really private celebrity. Even though he stars on one of primetime’s biggest shows, NCIS, he keeps such a low profile in Hollywood that very few people know much about him.

7. Promoted to Regular Cast Member
When Dietzen first appeared during season one of NCIS as Dr. Jimmy Palmer, he was only supposed to appear in one episode; however, producers liked the way he portrayed the character and how he interacted with his co-star David McCallum, who plays medical examiner Dr. Donald “Duck”” Mallard on the series, so they kept bringing him back for more episodes until they made him a series regular in 2012 when the show was going into its tenth season.
6. Humble Beginnings
He was born in Barrington, Illinois, on November 14, 1977, but moved to Boulder, Colorado, during the second grade. When he was finished high school, he attended the University of Colorado where he studied theatre and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. During university, he really developed his work ethic, which helped him prepare for success in Hollywood. His classes lasted from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and afterward, he would have to do scene work and prepare for rehearsals for the shows he was in. It wasn’t until 11 p.m. that everything would be finished and then he would do school work until 2 p.m.
