7 Things You Didn’t Know About NCIS Star Brian Dietzen
5. Deciding to Move to L.A.
After college, he participated in the Colorado Shakespeare Festival for two years and appeared in productions for Equus and Waiting for Godot. He was discovered when his agent in Denver invited an agent from L.A. to see him Waiting for Godot. The L.A. agent invited Brian to Hollywood for pilot season, which is when he decided to make the big leap.
4. Learning the Hollywood Game
The NCIS actor was pretty green when he first moved to L.A. He didn’t know there was a protocol for casting that required actors and actresses to write letters to casting directors and producers that said they wanted to be on their shows. Once he learned that, he started doing it and he would keep track of how productive he was with a time card. He would list what he did for 40 hours per week even when he was unemployed for six months.
