Teen Heartthrob From 1970s to Appear on 'CSI' TV Guide

An actor and singer who was a teen heartthrob on television in the 1970s is set for a turn on CBS’s “CSI,” TV Guide reports. Appearing as a poker player will be David Cassidy, who was the teen sensation on ABC's "The Partridge Family" in the 1970s.

His “CSI” character, Mr. Coe, is described in the piece as a man who’s “desperately trying to hold on to his fading youth. He has undergone massive injections of Botox, which has given him the added ability of maintaining a 'poker face' at the gambling tables.”

The episode is tentatively set for Feb. 27.

Cassidy, 62, was seen on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011 and has made a number of other guest appearances on TV, including a 2005 episode of “Less Than Perfect” and a 2003 installment of “Malcolm in the Middle,” the report notes.
