CSI: NY Scoop: Breaking Bad's Dean Norris Cops Another Lawman Role

It appears that Dean Norris has law enforcement matters to look into other than the lucrative drug dealings of the elusive Heisenberg.

TVLine has learned that Norris, who on Breaking Bad plays incapacitated cop-turned-rock mineral collector Hank Schrader, will guest-star on CSI: NY as an Internal Affairs detective who investigates a shooting that involves one of the CSIs.

  2. Joe says:

    He was literally just on regular CSI; appearing in a major role in the last few episodes of the current season.
    Seems a bit soon for him to appear in the spin-off which is meant to be set in the same universe, no?
