Angel and Desperate Housewives alum John Rubinstein is set to appear in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premiere, I have learned exclusively.
Rubinstein previously appeared in the “The Unusual Suspect,” and has been tapped to film scenes for the Season Fourteen premiere titled “The Devil and D.B. Russell.” Though he previously portrayed Judge Crawford during the Season Six installment, Rubinstein’s second appearance finds him in a different role. He’ll play a priest in the September 25 episode; kind, humble and reassuring, during a funeral service this priest refers to the Book of Job as a biblical analogy and offers mourners a choice between hopelessness and faith. The episode was written by Christopher Barbour and Don McGill, which is set to go in front of the cameras next week with Alec Smight at the helm.
In the Season Thirteen finale “Skin in the Game” Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) and Ellie Brass (Teal Redmann) both found themselves in serious peril, abducted by a man targeting prostitutes and with a severe obsession with Dante’s Inferno. So will Brody or Ellie meet their maker? Sources are sworn to secrecy, however Redmann, who now resides in Canada, has turned down offers to return to the show, and only agreed to appear in photos (hence her being credited last season). She last appeared in Season Six’s “Way to Go,” and qualifies as the most likely candidate.
In addition to multiple episodes of Angel, Rubinstein’s credits include Desperate Housewives, Harry’s Law, The Young And The Restless and 24.
