Who should replace William Petersen on CSI?
We told you yesterday about William Petersen leaving his role as Gil Grissom on CBS' CSI. Now comes word that a bunch of actors have either been asked to take his place or have at least been talked about taking his place.
First on the list is John Malkovich, who was actually asked to take over the role but said 'no' (that would have made him a strong contender for this award next year). Other names that have been brought up include Kurt Russell and Laurence Fishburne.
Wow, those are two exciting names, actually. Two strong movie actors with TV ties. I can picture both of them in the role and really giving the show a little jolt. Personally, I think they should hire Tim Daly, have the team go private, and change the show's title to Eyes.
After the jump, some more names that might be added to the list...
|Kurt Russell||152 (26.4%)|
|Laurence Fishburne||114 (19.8%)|
|Mandy Patinkin||76 (13.2%)|
|James Woods||47 (8.2%)|
|James Gandolfini||32 (5.6%)|
|Geena Davis||29 (5.0%)|
|Tim Daly||50 (8.7%)|
|Andy Dick||29 (5.0%)|
|Other (say in comments)||46 (8.0%)|
