E.T. actor to appear on CSI

Henry Thomas on CSIHe helped E.T. phone home, and now former child actor Henry Thomas will be appearing on CSI as a convicted murderer that is serving a prison sentence. You keep hearing about child stars who go bad, but judging by his IMDB profile, Thomas has managed to keep out of trouble and keep working.

I'm glad Thomas had a more normal childhood than his movie co-star Drew Barrymore. Of course, Drew ended up becoming a bigger name in show biz, but the business is fickle and this appearance could set Thomas into more visible roles. Wouldn't that be a hoot if Thomas and Barrymore appeared once more together in a television show or movie (besides reunion shows)? If he's not done raping the stuff he made 20 years ago, perhaps Spielberg could do a sequel to E.T.

On second thought, that's a really bad idea. Let's leave the past in the past.

Tonights episode, 4-2-09, the big 200th episode was without a doubt the worst of the worst. No real plot, no character to care for, none of the usual cast was used to any real degree, the worst writing for any CSI show. This once best of the best show, is on its way down very quickly. We want the old CSI back! Great story, using all of the cast members, cross over stories, excellent writing, and music that fits the mood of the story line. You can and should do better!!

I live in San Antonio, (Henry is from here) and in the 90's I would hang out with him once in awhile and go see his band play sometimes (my friend was his buddy from school - and we ran in the same circle of friends). He is really one of the nicest unassuming "down to earth" guys. I am not claiming to to be close to him at all, but he is pretty cool and nice with no pretention. I am always happy to see him in movies or TV.

Not sure why this is news. Must be a slow sweeps period.
