A "CSI" actor whose character has been recurring for some time is getting a promotion to series regular, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
Jon Wellner, who plays toxicology specialist Henry Andrews, will become a full-time cast member, the story reports. The promotion comes after "CSI" actor Eric Szmanda, who plays Greg Sanders, has agreed to return for the 13th season, as previously reported.
Wellner first joined the CBS drama in its fifth season and has appeared in more than 60 episodes.
The show’s past season was one of transition, with a move from Thursday to Wednesday along with many cast changes.
