NCIS: New Orleans is one step closer to reality, with the release of the casting breakdowns for the four series leads.

To be executive-produced by NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg and series star Mark Harmon, the CBS pilot — to be introduced as a spring 2014 episode of NCIS proper — will follow the New Orleans office as it handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle.

Per ShowBiz411, the four lead characters shake out as follows; each is open to “any ethnicity.” Give each role a once-over, then see if you’re on board with any of our knee-jerk casting suggestions.

AGENT PRIDE | A male in his 50s, Pride is described as “charismatic and full of life” yet “stubborn, direct” and “no-nonsense.”
TVLINE SUGGESTS | Jason Isaacs (Awake), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Frederick Weller (In Plain Sight)/>

AGENT LASALLE | This “muscular,” “devilish” and “charming” 30something fella was born and raised in Louisiana, a former Sheriff’s deputy who’s been through some rough times.
TVLINE SUGGESTS | Tom Welling (Smallville), Scott Speedman (The Last Resort), Wes Brown (Deception)/>

AGENT BRODY | Hailing from the Great Lakes office, this 30something female boasts an Ivy League mind and “Grace Kelly-like class, pomp and circumstance.” Unpredictable, funny and fierce, she’s determined to be the best female agent NCIS has ever known.
TVLINE SUGGESTS | KaDee Strickland (Private Practice), Anna Camp (True Blood), Alona Tal (Veronica Mars)/>

DR. WADE | presumably the Ducky of the team, she’s “outspoken,” “eccentric” and “void of social boundaries.” She’s also a college football nut who “doesn’t give herself enough credit for still being quite a looker.”
TVLINE SUGGESTS | Merrin Dungey (Alias), Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny), Rachel Griffiths (Brothers & Sisters)/>

Now you’ve heard our off-the-cuff picks — who are yours?
