Dwayne Pride Vs. Leroy Gibbs: Which One Is The Best NCIS Chief?
NCIS is an American TV series filled with action and drama. If you ever dreamed of being a police agent, that’s your show to watch. The main character is a special agent and a chief, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, who is portrayed by the talented actor Mark Harmon. He shows many ‘manly’ qualities during the show, but we wonder, is his friend Dwayne Pride, played by Scott Bakula, a better chief?
NCIS follows a team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Their work focused around solving crimes involving the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The show is a spin-off of the legal drama JAG, which was aired in 1995. It is 7th-longest-running scripted American TV series of all times.
Leroy Jethro Gibbs is a former U.S Marine Corps Scout Sniper who became a special agent. He commands a team for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Gibbs is considered to be the best marksman on the team, having a lot of skills. The prominent one is handling violent standoffs.
Despite that, he’s not very good at technical things, so he depends on his team when it comes to technical forensics and background checks.
Leroy Gibbs portrays the perfect chief: patient, but firm. Although he’s not that patient when it comes to bureaucracy.
Leroy is a private man, who doesn’t like to speak about his personal life. He likes discipline and can’t stand ambiguous references. He’s known for his prominent trait, which is the gut instinct.
The best way to keep secret? Keep it to yourself.
He considers his team as his family:
Family’s more than just DNA. It’s about people who care and take care of each other.
Dwayne Cassius Pride, nicknamed "King", is a Supervisory Special Agent. He’s from New Orleans and used to be a Jefferson Parish deputy sheriff. Pride and Gibbs are long-time friends, who became close when they were part of the "Fed Five”, a group of NCIS agents known for arresting a man called "The Privileged Killer."
He’s not only a great agent, holding the second highest arrest record in the history of Jefferson Parish's Sheriff’s Office, but also a good father.
The moment I heard my daughter's heartbeat on the ultrasound, she was instantly my whole world.
Dwayne and his wife, Linda, got divorced and he sold their house to pay for his daughter’s, Laurel, college. He also bought a place for his father, which makes him a generous and caring man. In one of the episodes, he says to Laurel:
I'm the father, you're the daughter. It's my job to worry about you.
The fans liked Scott Bakula’s character so much that he got his own show, a spin-off of NCIS, called NCIS: New Orleans.
So who’s better chief? Leroy Gibbs, a well-organized ass-kicker, or Dwayne Pride, a wise and kind-hearted dad?
Also, who looks better in the uniform?
That's a tougher question.
