CSI Books Jesse McCartney for February Sweeps

Almost a year to the day that Justin Bieber bit the proverbial (OK, literal) bullet(s) on CSI, actor/musician Jesse McCartney will himself guest-star on the CBS crime drama.

In a sweeps episode tentatively scheduled to air Feb. 15, McCartney will play Wes, a recent college grad who passes out while driving and crashes his car, CSI Files reports. In the wake of the mysterious incident, Wes bonds with investigator Nick as they try to piece together what happened.

McCartney’s past TV credits include Greek, Summerland, All My Children and, more recently, Fox’s unfortunately passed-on Locke & Key pilot.
