CSI Scoop: X-Files' Annabeth Gish Books Major Arc as Catherine's [Spoiler]

The truth is out there about Marg Helgenberger’s hush-hush exit plot on CSI, and I have a hunch X-Files vet Annabeth Gish figures squarely in the middle of it.

The actress has landed a three-episode arc as Laura, an old friend of the soon-to-depart Catherine. When the two reconnect after 20 years apart, Cath discovers a surprising terror underneath her pal’s cheery exterior — a terror that she suspects is linked to her powerful bazillionaire hubby whose company may or may not have been involved in some very shady goings-on.

Gish’s first of three non-consecutive episodes is slated to air during November sweeps. She most recently appeared as shrink Anne Sullivan on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars.

Producers are also casting the role of an FBI agent who comes to Vegas to work on a big case — and sleep with Catherine.

    Yay Annabeth Gish! Loved her guest spot on Lie To Me last year.

  2. Jaime says:

    Have they addressed what happened to Catherine’s cop boyfriend? Did I miss it?

  3. Bella says:

    I vote for David James Elliott for the FBI agent who comes to town and hooks up with Catherine.

    Well DJE is filming Good Christian Bells/Bitches right now. But it would be interesting if they could get him to reprise his FBI role from CSI NY.

    Just get rid of her ASAP.
    The plastic surgery/botox face is getting ridiculous & they’ve turned the character into an absolute cow.
    Get rid & make Nick top dog.
    With him at the top I believe the show could run a good few more years.

    So TPTB at CSI want Catherine to go out with a bang, how classy.

  7. Lu says:

    Yes, make Nick the supervisor already, he deserves it!
    And doesn’t David James Elliot play Sela Ward’s ex-husband in CSI: NY? Another guy to sleep with Catherine? How original…
    Either way, can’t wait to watch this. I love Annabeth Gish since Mystic Pizza!

    Nick has to be one of the most boring, pedestrian characters on television. If they made him lead, I’d flee in the opposite direction. I like Ted Danson. I want William Petersen to guest as they keep hinting, and I like Jorja Fox. She’s really the only decent actor on the show anymore (outside of Ted.) Not suitable for the lead, probably, but neither is George Eads. Blech.

    And please loosen the reins on Marg’s face. She’s starting to get a littlw Wildenstein and it’s sad. She could probably age more gracefully.

    Love Annabeth Gish! Loved her since Shag!!!

    Any chance they can hook up? I’m just sayin’….it would be hot.
