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.

So how long will it take for the play to fail and WP will come crawling back to ABC? or maybe they'll join forces for CSI: Broadway.

My best friend Molly is an open-mineded single girl who love sports. She told me she met a black man at a dating club named ((((((((+++++==== Black White Meet . com====+++++++=))))))))) recently. She said they are happy now since both of them like sports and they all think love is color blind. Black & White singles, will you find your match online? Do you belive online dating and love?
