Nick Torres/Wilmer Valderrama #1

Welcome to the 1st
Nicholas "Nick" Torres/Wilmer Valderrama
Appreciation Thread!





x
Special Agent Nicholas Torres, or Nick as he's more commonly called, is played by Wilmer Valderrama. Nick first appeared in NCIS at the start of season fourteen when he returned to DC after years of working undercover in Argentina when his family's lives were threatened. With the help of Gibbs' and his team they were able to stop the drug lord who wanted to take revenge on Nick by killing all of his closest relations. Unfortunately his brother-in-law (who was a JAG lawyer) died, but his sister and niece survived. One can presume that Nick probably joined NCIS around the same time that Leon Vance became the director. However as he worked alone and a part of the undercover division he hadn't crossed paths with Gibbs or his team prior to this. After the case was over Torres decided to stick around while his sister recovered; meanwhile Gibbs invited him to join the team. Torres was unsure about it since he'd never been on a team before ("I never been on a team before. I'm not sure I'm the right fit."), but Bishop and McGee encouraged him to give it a chance ("First time for everything." / "Only one way to find out."). As Quinn said to Gibbs "Agent Torres was the absolute perfect choice for your team. Once I figured out what you were after, I got it. This time, it wasn't about finding an agent that your team needed; it was about finding an agent that needed your team."

For a long time he was known only for being the "Lone Wolf"; someone who trusts no one, nor needs anyone. Joining the team had changed his outlook on life and working in a team. From a one-man-band he has become a team member; relying on others expertise and wisdom. While he knew Agent Quinn ages before joining the team, his became closest friends with McGee, Bishop and Reeves. Clayton's death hit him quite hard, Ellie had to go and talk some sense into him. Reeves was like a brother to him.

When it comes to case-solving techniques: Torres is more like the muscle than the brains of the team. He solves cases on instinct, he struggles with technical terms and technology. Let it be printers, office equipment, or lava lamps he is able to make them malfunction in a minute.

He likes to tell tales about his undercover missions - no one knows the percentage of truth hidden within his words. As of now we only know that his being in Argentina, being part of motorbike gang, working undercover in a child trafficking syndicate, and dating a navy lieutenant's younger sister to prove his innocence are stories which truly happened.

Not much of his private life is known but we do know that he loves dancing and motorbikes and that he hates movies. He has a sister and niece whom we haven't seen since his first episode. During his run within the show we only saw meeting women a couple of times. Besides the Argentine undercover girlfriend/fiance, he had a thing for a blind woman and dated an older woman who had an adult son. He originally "won" Tony's apartment, but decided to let McGee and Delilah to rent Tony's former flat. He is a second son to Dinozzo Sr.; Senior always tries to give him dating advises.


Torres: "Yeah, it's a fantastic idea, except it's a misuse of my superpowers."
Bishop: "Which are?"
Torres: "Kicking down doors, breaking through windows. The tango" (14x04)



Wilmer Valderrama plays Nicholas "Nick" Torres on NCIS. He was born on January 30 1980 in Miami, Florida, USA. His mother is of Colombian descent, while his father came from Venezuela. When Wilmer was born the family owned a farm equipment rental company in Florida, however when he turned 3 they moved to Venezuela. They would later move to Colombia before moving back to the States when he was 14.

Wilmer has a colourful past - besides appearing in many diverse roles, and trying out his hand at making music between 2010-2014; he's also known for dating celebs. He dated Mandy Moore, Ashlee Simpson, Lindsay Lohan and Demi Lovato, to name his more (in)famous relationships. In January of this year he got engaged to Amanda Pacheco, a model who is close to a decade younger than him. The couple has been together since 2019.

But back to his professional career; arguably his most notable role was "Fez" in the '90s hit show - That '70s Show. He was a high school senior when the first season was shot. He has also appeared in numerous movies over the years as well appearing in theatre every now and then. Wilmer has had the opportunity to produce a couple shows for MTV series: Yo Momma (2006), Punk'd (2003), Blowin' Up (2006) and Trippin' (2005). He was also the voice of Manny on Disney Channel's animated series Handy Manny.

He is one of the spokespersons of the Latino Community. He actively advocates for their rights, as well as for the Latin youth receiving equal chances at succeeding in life. He is the co-chair of Voto Latino/Latin Vote and the spokesperson for CHCI. As well as being an executive board member of the organization Environmental Media Association, fighting for sustainability.

Interview about coming into NCIS when its an established show:
Quote:
Wilmer Valderrama Talks Strapping on His Disruptor Boots for ‘NCIS’ Season 14

It’s a simple job: Come in and stir things up. “I tend to be hired for that,” Wilmer Valderrama told TheWrap with a laugh. Almost 20 years into a career that has seen him on programs like “That ’70s Show,” “Yo Mamma,” “From Dusk Till Dawn” and “Minority Report,” the 36-year-old actor has now been tasked to shake up TV’s quietest hit, CBS’ long-running “NCIS,” which for 13 seasons has been ignored by most critics while drawing massive ratings. “I feel like I parachuted into a moving train, and they’ve been very welcoming. Hopefully I’ll be disruptive enough that we can do something new, unique and tonally different.”

Valderrama came to “NCIS” after filming a CBS pilot that didn’t get picked up; the network liked his work and found another show for him. “In the beginning I had my doubts,” he said. “It’s such a long-running show, they were kind of set in their ways, and I felt like, ‘What would my role be, metaphorically and literally?’ But I had a meeting with them, and I really liked that they were willing to take the show to different places.”

His character is an agent who has been in deep cover for eight years, and who was forgotten and presumed dead by his superiors. But when his cover is blown in Argentina, he surfaces to warn the agency of a possible threat. “He’s been kind of a lone wolf for a long time,” said Valderrama. “He feels funny about wearing a jacket that says, ‘This is who I am.’ He suffers from a little bit of post-traumatic stress and is having a rough time of it. Nonetheless Mark Harmon‘s character sees something unique in him and thinks he can be a real asset to the team.”

He is ok. I said in another thread that I feel they are trying to make his character a little like Tony with some of the things he does. Movie references, being a ladies man etc. He reminds me of someone else from one of the other shows too, but can't put my finger on who.

Pity he isn't completely original hope he shapes into a more original character that doesn't remind you of other characters as time goes on
