Laurence Fishburne is prime "CSI" suspect
By Nellie Andreeva Tue Aug 5, 11:42 PM PDT

Laurence Fishburne is in talks to replace William Petersen as the star of CBS' veteran crime drama "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

The search for a new lead has been shrouded in secrecy, but sources say Fishburne is being heavily courted to play the new character, described as a doctor/scientist outsider to the CSI unit who has the same genetic profile as a serial killer but hasn't previously acted on any homicidal impulses.

Fishburne, an Oscar nominee for "What's Love Got to Do With It," had been mentioned as one of the "CSI" producers' top choices for the role, along with John Malkovich and Kurt Russell

He's going to have to solve twice as many cases as a white person to keep his job

good move by producers, Fishburn is an intense actor. And still keeps diversity in the cast with the leaving of Gary Dourdan, (Warwick). Hate to see Petersen go, but change is not always bad.:thumb:

Kurt Russell? They were seriously considering him. Good God man.

I think Malkovich (sp?) would be excellent in this role. I can't recall him performing a role quite like this. He's usually the insane killer - not the investigator. I'm for him.

Come to think of it, Malkovich (sp?) might be a good Riddler if he was 20 years younger. Where are today's Malkovichs?

he's got to solve them all in a half hour instead of an hour.

I can see it now ... Case #1: Cap in the ass. Case #2: Two caps in the ass. Case #3: Cap in the ass with malice.
