Friday, July 5th, 2013

Fans of former CSI: New York actor Hill Harper (Dr Sheldon Hawkes) will be able to see him back on TV later this month, when the fourth season of Covert Affairs premieres on the USA Network on Tuesday, July 16 at 9:00pm ET/PT. “After being on a series for nine years, I wanted to make sure the next thing I did was the right thing,” Harper told TV Fanatic, which allowed him to make the leap from network television to a cable series. As CSI Files previously reported, Harper plays a CIA bureau chief named Calder Michaels, who is operating out of Columbia.

Here are two photos of Harper from a recent press visit to the Covert set:

You can find an interview embedded after the jump, in which Harper describes his role and reveals that Calder “brings a lot of conflict” to the series.

Sinise: It Was A Great Nine Years

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

During its nine seasons on the air, CSI: New York gave leading man Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) “stability” as an actor. “I didn’t have to worry about what my job was,” Sinise told CBS News. “And I could do a lot of good things. It allowed me to start my own foundation. It allowed me to do things with music that has been very beneficial to folks.” Now that CSI: NY has been cancelled, Sinise will concentrate on his work with the aforementioned Gary Sinise Foundation. Even though he’s moving forward, the actor reflected fondly on his time with the crime drama:

It was a great nine years. In the beginning, I didn’t know how I’d feel about doing a show over a long time period of time. But unless you have a long-running series, most actors just go job to job if you’re lucky to keep working. You just do a movie or a play or a TV thing, and it’s over at some point. This was the first time in my life as an actor or an entertainment person — aside from being the artistic director of Steppenwolf [Theatre Company] for a period about seven years, this is the first time in my life that I’ve had a steady job…And it was a great, wonderful group of people to work with over a nine-year period. Will I miss it? Yeah, but I knew it would come to an end at some point. After doing it for five years, getting another four years out of it was all gravy and icing on the cake. So I’m very grateful we had the time together on that.

Interview: ‘CSI: NY’ Showrunner Pam Veasey Dissects 9-Season Run

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

It doesn’t seem long ago that the second CSI: Crime Scene Investigation spinoff, CSI: New York, was launched. In reality, it was over nine years ago, a time when the television landscape was vastly different. It was the season that launched classics such as Desperate Housewives and Lost, during a season in which ratings were booming and network television was the place to be. Now, years later, all three shows are now gone, the lone survivor of a series that premiered during the 2004-2005 season being Grey’s AnatomyCSI: NY was cancelled by CBS last month after a nine-season, 197-episode run–no feat to sneeze at.

On the show since the very first season Pam Veasey helped craft and tool the series with its own distinct flavor. Whereas the original CSI and older sibling CSI: Miami premiered with an emphasis on the forensic science–after all, the franchise was about crime scene investigations–NY went in with a mandate to focus on character, blend it with the signature staple of the series, and make it its own. Something that kept the show on for many years.

With the complete and final season available on DVD today, Shane Saunders spoke with executive producer and showrunner Pam Veasey exclusively to examine the show’s origins, critical changes, cast departures, and more hot topics from the show’s nine years.

Sinise Considers New Projects & Continues To Support US Troops

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) works hard to support the men and women in the United States military, and he created the Gary Sinise Foundation to “serve our Nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.” Now that CSI: New York is over, Sinise is looking for work elsewhere, but his commitment to the military remains unchanged. “I’m considering other TV and film projects, but—no matter what I do next—the foundation will continue to be big part of my life,” the actor told the DCist. “It’s incredibly important to me to continue supporting our troops, and I’ll continue to raise awareness and show my gratitude for those who serve.”

For the eighth year in a row, Sinise will co-host the 2013 National Memorial Day Concert with Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds) this Sunday, May 26. “Memorial Day is the perfect time for us to recognize, celebrate and honor the incredible sacrifices made by the men and women who serve and protect the U.S., and it’s important that the country comes together to continue to serve our veterans just as they have served us,” Sinise said. “I am co-hosting the National Memorial Day Concert again because it’s important to me that I pay tribute and honor our fallen soldiers, military service men, women and their families.”
