How Michelle Obama ended up appearing in NCIS


Former First Lady Michelle Obama and current First Lady Jill Biden co-founded “Joining Forces” in 2011 – a support group that helps service members and their families seek employment and educational opportunities, as well as promote mental health and wellness resources for them . When the White House invited CBS Studios to film at the White House, Obama was offered a cameo role in an “NCIS” episode titled “Homefront.”

In her role, Obama promoted the “Joining Forces” program in season 13, episode 22. During the episode, she plays the role of the first lady and meets the mother of a Marine, as well as the NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (portrayed by Mark Harmon) in a panel discussion that also features real-life military wives who play extras. She told the roundtable, “We know the sacrifices our military families make, and it does not go unnoticed. Nor the sacrifices of our veterans.

According to a recap from Entertainment Weekly, Obama was a natural in her role and could easily continue acting. It was not his first, nor his only acting role. She also appeared in cameo roles on “Parks and Recreation” in 2014, Disney Channel’s “Jessie” in 2014 and “Black-ish” earlier this month. Obama also stars in and is an executive producer of Netflix’s children’s show, “Waffles + Mochi.”

But seriously, is there anything Michelle Obama can’t do?
