Laurence Fishburne Has His Eye on CSI

One of the big questions back at the TCA press tour was what CSI would look like without its leading man, William Petersen, who's leaving this season. Here's our first big clue: Laurence Fishburne is in talks to step in as the new male lead.

He'd be getting a pretty meaty role, too. As CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler described it, the new guy comes from outside the CSI unit and has a genetic profile comparable to that of a serial killer. He knows about the tendency, though he hasn't actually acted on any killer impulses to date.

Searching for the right actor for the role has apparently been a huge undertaking, with John Malkovich and Kurt Russell also named as top choices — but Malkovich turned down the job.

Landing an Oscar nominee and big name like Fishburne would seem like a serious score for CSI — but, if you're not already a viewer, would it draw you in? And, if you are a CSI fan, do you think Fishburne would mesh well with the current cast?
