In her first regular television role since the 1980s, an Oscar-nominated actress is joining CBS’s "CSI," reports New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.
Elisabeth Shue will take over from Marg Helgenberger, who is leaving the show in January, the story says. Shue will first appear on the show on Feb. 15, with her character arriving after attending an anger management course, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Her character will be followed by rumors that D.B. Russell, played by Ted Danson, fired her when he was her boss in Seattle, the piece adds.
Shue received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in "Leaving Las Vegas" (1995).
