Ted Danson joins CSI cast

What does the evidence tell us? That Ted Danson is about to write another chapter in a distinguished television career.

This fall Ted Danson will join the cast of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for its 12th season, US television network CBS has announced.

Danson will play the new supervisor for the Las Vegas CSI team. He has got some class shoes to fill, following in the footsteps of longtime star William Petersen and Laurence Fishburne who has been in charge of the team since the 2008-09 season.

CBS says Danson is going to be able to continue his involvement on the HBO comedy series, Bored to Death.

The 63-year-old Danson first found TV stardom nearly 30 years ago playing Boston bar owner Sam Malone on Cheers, a comedy hit on NBC that ran for 11 seasons.
