In a move that seemingly no one saw coming, Ted Danson has inked a deal to star in “CSI” on CBS.
Danson, who’s filling a spot on the show left by Laurence Fishburne, will continue on HBO’s “Bored to Death,” on which he’s been a regular alongside Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis.
That should make for an interesting workload contrast: the quirky, indie HBO detective dramedy and the blockbuster network mystery drama.
And for any hipster ready to label Danson a sellout: according to CBS’s press release, his character will show up after heading a crime lab in Portland. So, yeah. Portland.
