THE PUBLIC KNOWS YOU MORE FROM FILM. READY FOR A CHANGE? I see TV as a great medium. The last time I worked [regularly] on a show was Pee-Wee's Playhouse 20 years ago. I am not much of a TV watcher. But I sat down [after being approached by CSI] and I felt like, "Wow! I can do that!"
AND YOU'RE PALS WITH DEPARTING STAR WILLIAM PETERSEN. We've known each other a long time. There's something very organic about our friendship. My coming on CSI feels like a natural fit to both of us.
HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT WHAT MAKES THIS GUY TICK? VIEWERS ARE BEING TOLD HE HAS A DARK SIDE. There is an opportunity to develop the character as I go. I don't have to have all the answers right from the onset, but I am more than happy.
IS IT TRUE THAT YOU AND LAUREN HUTTON ARE BIKER BUDDIES? Yeah. We ride together. BMW motorcycles.
