Ted Danson the new leader at CBS’ “CSI”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The casting mystery has been solved. Ted Danson has been named Laurence Fishburne’s replacement on CBS’ original “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Danson, who has won Emmy and Golden Globe trophies for his television contributions, will play “the new CSI supervisor for the grave shift after heading the crime lab in Portland,” THR reports. The former “Cheers” star “comes to the team as it is still grappling with the professional and personal fallout from last season’s take-down of serial killer Nate Haskell (Bill Irwin),” according to the trade.

“You can create a new character on the page, but until the perfect actor comes along and breathes life into it, it’s just words,” executive producer Carol Mendelsohn said in a statement. “We’re very excited Ted Danson came along.”

Along with Danson’s addition, which will begin when the show premieres its twelfth season on Sept. 21, comes a move to a new time slot. “CSI” will now be seen on Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
