The Matrix's Morpheus, 47, jumps into the cast of CBS's hit drama CSI on Dec. 11, playing renowned pathologist Dr. Raymond Langston.

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.
