Watch The ‘CSI’ PaleyFest Panel, Plus Tweets & Photos


As CSI Files previously reported, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation did a panel at PaleyFest last night in honor of the show’s upcoming series finale. The panel included cast members William Petersen (Gil Grissom), Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows), Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders), Paul Guilfoyle (Jim Brass), Ted Danson (DB Russell), Robert David Hall (Dr Al Robbins), Elisabeth Harnois (Morgan Brody), David Berman (David Phillips), Wallace Langham (David Hodges) and Jon Wellner (Henry Andrews); along with creator Anthony Zuiker, co-creators and executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue, and executive producers Jonathan Littman and Jerry Bruckheimer. You can watch the CSI panel on Yahoo, or find it embedded below:

Next, check out these 84 tweets, including comments from the panel and reactions from the cast:

Several of the actors spoke to Entertainment Weekly on the red carpet before the event, and here’s a quote from Petersen:

I thought [creator Anthony Zuiker’s] idea was fabulous — and I didn’t know if we could pull it off. I didn’t know what we could do with it, but I thought the idea was great. And I always thought that it would be interesting to see how we actually solve these crimes, and the people that actually do that work, that nobody ever knows about.

We always see the cops, we see the lawyers — that’s what television has always been. We wanted to see what happens behind those guys.
