Exclusive: CSI: Miami Casts Iconic Sex Symbol Raquel Welch In a Mother of a Role

CSI: Miami baddie Diego Navarro comes from very, very good stock — in that his mother is Raquel Welch.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress and 1960s/70s sex symbol will guest-star on CBS’ Sunday night crime drama as the matriarch of the very powerful Miami family from which Carlos Bernard’s character and thus his son Esteban (Kuno Becker) aka “The Miami Taunter” hail.

Welch’s episode is set to air in early 2012, following a guest appearance by another iconic bombshell, 10‘s Bo Derek (playing the owner of a horse stable, as EW.com reported).

Welch, whose many silver screen credits include One Million Years B.C., 100 Rifles, The Three Musketeers and Legally Blonde, most recently appeared on TV in the short-lived 2008 CBS sitcom Welcome to the Captain.

    She’s a little young to appeal to CBS’s core audience.

    Again CSI is late to the party. An “older” female running a crime family was already done on NCIS LA.

    • CJ says:

      It was done many times in the 1950s and 1960s, too. It’s a little silly to criticize TV shows for reusing vague plot elements in this day and age.

    She’s starting to get that scary bird of prey look. Quick look and see if she has jesses on her legs.
