CSI fans are in for a triple treat this evening: besides the two episodes that CBS will be showing, the syndicated TV show Entertainment Tonight will also air an exclusive report from the set of the original CSI.

The official ET site has already posted a preview of the tour that stars Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows) and Gary Dourdan (Warrick Brown) gave of the autopsy suite set. While Dourdan tried to convince ET presenter Mark Steines that this is where the cast take naps in between takes, Helgenberger showed some compassion for the guest actors who have to portray the victims of the week. "This is where all the actors, who have to endure this long prosthetic makeup job and wear nude undies and all that, have to lie for hours and not breathe," she said.

Another actress who ET talked to was Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), and she revealed she actually appreciated the autopsy suite. "This is my favorite set on the show. It is a graphic, gruesome place."

But for tonight's episode, "Nesting Dolls," Fox didn't spend that much time in the police department sets, as the episode's storyline called for her character to be suspended and sent home. "Sara has a bit of a meltdown," Fox said. "It is not the first time in the five years that the character is in professional and personal trouble. Sara is very passionate and has a bit of a temper and you are going to see all that tonight and more."

"Everybody has a past and a history," Fox continued. "Sara's is a little more muddled and complicated than some and we are going to open the door on that tonight."
