CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has cast two guest stars to appear in upcoming episodes relating to Marg Helgenberger’s (Catherine Willows) exit from the series. (Spoilers after the jump!)
Annabeth Gish will appear in three non-consecutive episodes of CSI as a friend from Catherine’s past. Her character, Laura, is married to a billionaire military contractor. He is investigated by the CSIs in conjunction with an arms theft, and Laura may be living in fear of her husband. Gish’s first episode will air during November sweeps.
Meanwhile, Matt Lauria has been cast as an arrogant FBI agent in at least three episodes. Lauria plays SAC (Special Agent in Charge) Pratt, who comes in to help on a big case. He and Gish will both make their first appearance during the ninth episode of CSI’s twelfth season.
