The backdoor pilot for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s potential spinoff will feature a guest appearance from Gil Bellows (Ally McBeal). (Spoilers after the jump!)
According to TV Line, Bellows will play Mr Berman, “a wealthy and powerful casino mogul with many secrets.” Berman’s wife is murdered, and the CSIs consider him their prime suspect. As CSI Files previously reported, the backdoor pilot is the penultimate episode of season 14, which is scheduled to air on April 30. Titled “Kitty”, the episode will introduce Patricia Arquette as Avery Ryan, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division in Quantico, Virginia. CSI creators Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue wrote the episode, which is directed by Eagle Egilsson.
