Ted Danson is joining 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation'




Laurence Fishburne may be off CSI: Crime Scene Investigation next season, but CBS has already found a replacement: Ted Danson. His first case will be finding out what happened to all the pigment in his hair.

Danson will play the new supervisor for the Las Vegas team, the role previously held by Fishburne and William Petersen, the AP reports. Ted will also still show up on HBO's Bored to Death, even while CSI starts its 12th season on Sept. 21.

Want to know the scariest part of this trivia? Danson is 63, and it's been almost 30 years since he played Sam Malone on Cheers. Excuse The Juice*, because we have to go sit down and catch our breath now.
