CSI Recruits Mark Valley to Team With (and Romance?) Finlay

Here’s a case for the CSIs: Can a new private investigator  — played by Mark Valley — get the drop on Finlay’s heart?

Valley (FringeBody of Proof) will recur on the CBS prodcedural as a former detective/current P.I. who teams with Elisabeth Shue’s character when his partner goes missing, EW.com reports.

Though the two don’t get along swimmingly from the start, they do feel a strong attraction.

Valley’s other credits include Human Target, Crisis and Harry’s Law.

CSI returns Sunday, Sept. 28, at 10/9c.

    I’m sure its just a guest spot, but it isn’t clarified. Is it a guest, recurring, regular?

      From the story–see the word “recur”

      Valley (Fringe, Body of Proof) will recur on the CBS prodcedural as a former detective/current P.I. who teams with Elisabeth Shue’s character when his partner goes missing,

    Well, that’s the end for CSI. I love MV, but he is a show killer…

    • Fyrkat says:

      Too true. If the show wants to survive he’d better be a guest star and not recurring (and heavens forbid not a regular)

      • Kvivik says:

        OMG!!! EW.com says it’s a recurring role…. Well, CSI, it was nice knowing you. Season 15 will be your last.

        • I concur, the last three shows he was made a regular on have all been cancelled after him coming on the show. Although if CSI can make it after Fishburne, it may be able to survive Valley.

    • Ethel says:

      I feel the same way but we have to consider how long CSI has been on and take this into account when it is canceled.

    • Sam says:

      Exactly what i thought. It’s going to be cancelled (sooner than planned). Though i do really like him.

    • Grey says:

      LOL. I thought the same thing. Poor guy. But he does seem to own that particular “TV voodoo.”

  3. Yeah this will save CSI’s painful decline, giving the most obnoxious character a new love interest.

  4. ChicagoDan says:

    Ha – it’s going to take a lot more the MV to kill CSI. He’s a good guy and should be fine as a recurring character. The one thing CSI has done well during the TD years – focusing episodes on the entire cast – the LF-era was a disaster as long-time characters took a back seat to him.

  5. Erin says:

    Fun fact: I saw Mark Valley at O’Hare two weekends ago. He was by himself, having a coffee at the gate. Or if it wasn’t him, he has a twin running around Chicago.

  6. Tim Devine says:

    There goes the series. Do you know how many shows he has killed off after coming aboard?

  7. KN says:

    And Days of our Lives!

  8. Bella says:

    I miss Human Target, that was a great show, at least at first. They said Eric Balfour was a show-killer too and that Haven wouldn’t last a season, yet here we are several seasons later. The sky is not falling, chicken littles!

  9. Isn’t CSI’s 15th season most likely a shorter episode order? It’s going to be on Sundays at 10pm and they still have to make room for CSI: Cyber and The Mentalist, which are premiering midseason.

    I liked Human Target. Demise was not MV, it was Mrs Pucci

  11. I thought she was supposed to be Nick’s love interest? When will he find love?
