Liev Schreiber joins CSI
October 25th, 2006 under CBS, Liev Schreiber. [ Comments: none ]

Tony Award-winning actor Liev Schreiber is joining the cast of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in his first appearance in a broadcast television series, playing the recurring role of a seasoned CSI who has established a strong reputation in various police departments across the country before joining the veteran team at the Las Vegas Crime Lab. He will first appear in the series’ twelfth episode, to be broadcast in January 2007 on CBS. "I’m a huge Liev Schreiber fan. On stage or in film, I think he’s one of the finest actors of his generation," says Carol Mendelsohn, executive producer of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. "We first sat down with Liev earlier this summer to discuss the possibility of him appearing as a recurring character on CSI. We knew it was a long shot, he really doesn’t do television. But he was patient and I think amused, as we promised that we’d create a character for him that he couldn’t refuse to play. Excitingly for us, he collaborated in this process. And we’ve got a wonderful, complex character as a result. Everyone at CSI — writers, cast, crew — is honored to have him on the show and is looking forward to working with him." "After meeting the people who run CSI, it immediately becomes apparent why it has consistently been one of the top shows on television. I am a fan, how could I say no?" says Schreiber.
