CSI Scoop: Matt Lauria Collars FBI Agent Arc

Former Chicago Code cop Matt Lauria is transitioning from the police department to the FBI with a multi-episode arc on CSI, sources confirm to TVLine.

The Friday Night Lights MVP will play Sac Pratt, an clean cut, all-business, no-nonsense boy man who knows he’s been promoted too soon and uses his arrogance to cover his insecurities. This veteran FBI agent is the Special Agent in Charge that barges in to help with a big case.

This is one of several new roles CSI is adding next month as the show prepares to say farewell to Marg Helgenberger’s Catherine. As TVLine reported early Tuesday, Annabeth Gish has landed an arc as an old friend of Catherine’s.

  • Busy day on CSI! I really like these new actors… But I wonder if William Petersen will be making an appearance or not.

  • That would be SAC Pratt, not Sac Pratt.

    • I hope so because that would be one unfortunate name for a guy.

  • Is this the FBI agent that is going to sleep with Catherine? He seems a little young??

  • I think that CSI would do better for a while by establishing Ted Danson’s character.
    I don’t beleive it will be a good thing to have his authority immediately established by the FBI.
    But I suppose that they think TPTB feel they need to bring in a young stud to try to draw increased 18-34 ratings.
