And It's Official: Fishburne Joins CSI


We already knew that Petersen was out and now Laurence Fishburne is officially IN as Gil Grissom's replacement on CSI.


Tentatively, Fishburne's character will first appear around the 9th episode of the season (also right around where Peterson is departing) and will be playing a former pathologist turned criminalistics teacher.


On the casting, the CSI producers have said:

"If you distill CSI down to its essence, it's a collaboration, and we are so looking forward to collaborating with Mr. Fishburne. For all of us at CSI, this is truly a dream."
