Tarantino and Whedon Shoutouts in NCIS

Anyone else notice?

The "hot lawyer" character was from the lawfirm of "Wolfram, Hart, and Donowitz".

Wolfram and Hart of course was the evil lawfirm in Joss Whedons "Angel".

Donowitz is a shoutout to Tarrantino. It's the last name of two of his characters: Lee Donowitz in "True Romance", and Donny Donowitz in "Inglorious Basterds".

I didn't happen to catch the writers credits on the show, wonder if they've been involved with Whedon or Tarantino before (hahah, IMDB prevails once again. The writer was an assistant on "Angel", and there are some google mentiones of his name with Tarantino regarding upcoming projects).
