Gary Cole vs. Mark Harmon

It's a network series talent smackdown and the stakes are high. With NCIS episode 3 of Season 19 debuting tonight, anything can happen as we learn more about Gary Cole's character Agent Park.

As Mark Harmon steps back on NCIS and Gary Cole steps in...will Cole assume the NCIS throne or is this all shameless TV marketing?

After 19 seasons can anyone really just replace Harmon? Can Cole fill those polished shoes?

I guess we shall see.

But in the meantime, we have our own Cole v. Harmon marathon below so you decide who's got the chops or should be chopped!

We start with the Harmon and Prince of Bel-Air. Four years before the series of nearly the same title starring Will Smith, and a year before they starred in the cult hit "Summer School," Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley showed their romantic comedy chemistry in this little known 80s classic. 

Next up is For My Daughter's Honor following a high school student who becomes an object of creepy romantic affection to the school's biology teacher and football coach played by Gary Cole. The two begin a secret relationship that raises people's suspicions.

In keeping with creepy romance, we bring you Mark Harmon and Elizabeth Taylor in Sweet Bird of Youth, an adaptation of Tennessee William's masterful melodrama about an aging movie star who, appalled by her own image on the screen, flees from her movie premiere and goes into seclusion falling headlong into a sordid affair with Mark Harmon's character, Chance.

Divine Access stars Gary Cole, Billy Burke, and Patrick Warburton and follows Jack Harriman and his religious expertise used to attract women. When he becomes a spiritual celebrity, he is launched into a multi-city tour where he must find his own deeper calling.
