“CSI’s” Marg Helgenberger Is Out, Elisabeth Shue Is In
I’m a big fan of “CSI” and have noticed I’m not alone. The television show, following criminologists in Las Vegas, has been running eleven years and has had spin-offs of “CSI-NY” and CSI-Miami” but the original remains the king. Marg Helgenberger has been with the series since the beginning and her character will be exiting the show, while a character played by Academy Award nominated-actress Elisabeth Shue enters. She is probably best known for movie roles in “The Karate Kid”, “Cocktail” and the dramatic “Leaving Las Vegas”. Her new tv character, to be introduced February 15, has just finished an anger management course. And rumors are that Ted Danson’s character, D.B. Russell, fired her when she worked for him in Seattle. Sounds like it’s all set up to entertain us for another decade.
