Well, last month CBS has tapped Ted Danson to take over the role of Laurence Fishburne, as Fishburne exist from the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Now CBS is all set to announce Ted Danson as the drama’s leading man for the show’s 12th season.

Interestingly, there were many rumors claiming that the network chose Ted among the likes of candidates such as Robin Williams, Tony Shalhoub and John Lithgow.

According to the reports, Danson will play the CSI supervisor for the grave shift after heading the crime lab in Portland. The 63-year-old Danson is going to join the CSI team as they are still grappling with the professional and personal fallout from last season’s take-down of serial killer, Nate Haskell (Bill Irwin).

Carol Mendelsohn, the executive producer says, you can create a new character on the page, however until the ideal actor strikes along and breathes life into it, it’s just words and we are very excited Ted Danson came along.

Ted’s character allegedly will be a bit more light-hearted than Laurence’s Ray Langston, and more in the vein of his predecessor, William Petersen’s Gil Grissom.

Don McGill, the executive producer discussing about how Ted will fit in the new character states that from the moment we all started talking about the role; it was obvious he could not be more perfect. Wit, warmth, Intelligence, depth of character and emotion, he brings it all. And at present he will have to bring latex gloves, as well.

As you are aware, Crime Scene Investigation was once a top show. Unfortunately, as Petersen left the show in 2008, CSI went from the Top 5 position to number 30. Yet, the TV series stands as the most-watched series in the world.
