William Petersen’s planned exit from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation surprised viewers and led to speculation as to who would be his replacement. Several A-list names like John Malkovich and Kurt Russell were initially thrown around, but it looks like Laurence Fishburne of Matrix fame is a top contender for the role. He’s currently in talks with producers to possibly portray a research doctor who joins the forensic team and who hides a dark secret: he shares a serial killer’s forensic profile, but hasn’t acted on his murderous instincts. How very Dexter!
