Elisabeth Shue to replace Marg Helgenberger on 'CSI'

Marg Helgenberger may be leaving CSI in January but the veteran procedural found a pretty cool way to make up for the loss: The network announced today that Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) will join the show as a series regular.

She’ll play a CSI who just completed anger management training. Her character will be introduced in the episode airing Feb. 15.

“While it’s difficult to say goodbye to a beloved character like Catherine Willows, it’s exciting to start a journey with a new CSI, especially when that character is played by Elisabeth Shue,” said executive producer Carol Mendelsohn in a statement. “The new CSI also struggles with brutal honesty issues and suffers no fools.”

“Elisabeth’s character will share a past, in another crime lab, with Ted Danson’s character [D.B. Russell],” added executive producer Don McGill in a statement. “The first time things didn’t go so well between the two of them. Maybe the second time’s the charm, or not.”

For years, the broadcast networks have been trying to find a star vehicle for Shue, whose previous film credits include Adventures in Babysitting and The Karate Kid. She was an early contender for The Good Wife and most recently, was eyed to play Tim Allen’s wife in Last Man Standing.

Shue stars in the upcoming film House at the End of the Street opposite Jennifer Lawrence that’ll premiere in April. She’s also filming Of Men And Mavericks opposite Gerard Butler.

Talk about a Show that went from Sweet Sugar to Stank Shit it would be THIS CSI and Ted Danson rectangle headed ass getting the part was FUCKING Brilliance`NOT! I can't believe what's become of CSI I use too rushed home when it first started ( :wub: Grissom & Warrick :wub2: ).
Let'em continue with their character REPLACEMENT KILLAS, because I don't see the show staying afloat much longer.

Thanx 4Posting KMan!

They should have just ended the show when Grissom left. Good grief what a mess.

Why would she do CSI and not the Good Wife? That just seems idiotic. The Good Wife would have been a solid platform to showcase her and relaunch her as a relevant actress again.

CSI on the other hand?? Did people who don't watch it even know Ted Danson was on it now?
