Serial Killer Doctor Joining "CSI"?
When William Petersen leaves "CSI" this coming season -- 10 episodes in -- he will be replaced by an actor of "stature" who will play an outsider to the CSI, who "has the DNA" of a serial killer and who is on a "journey" to discover his "true character." So says CBS entertainment President Nina Tassler to TV critics at Thank God We're Working TV Press Tour 2008.
Still, she said when asked, this character is not "informed" by Showtime's "Dexter" -- a series that aired this past season on CBS to fill a hole left by the writers strike -- about a forensics specialist working with the police department who has the DNA of a serial killer and his journey to discover his true character.
The big difference? "CSI's" serial-killer-DNA guy has not killed anybody while "Dexter's" serial-killer-DNA guy has killed scads.
Peterson, Tassler tells us, is leaving to produce a play and, it appears, is very outspoken about his "artistic dedication." To not doing the show any more.
