Ted Danson and Marg Helgenberger joined a panel CSI panel on Wednesday to discuss the upcoming 12th season of the hit CBS show. While Ted was excited to be a new addition to the show, Marg says she thinks she’s ready to go!
Marg, the lead actress of CSI, told reporters (via Reuters) on Wednesday that she plans for the 12th season to be her last.
She thought about leaving at the end of last season, but then decided to extend her stay saying she was “having a hard time letting go and that I was not yet done playing this character. That’s why I decided to extend (my contract) a little bit.”
Ted, on the other hand, is taking over for Laurence Fishburne and playing the new character D.B. Russell, which he couldn’t be happier about.
“I was thrilled, happy… My jaw is still hanging down a little bit from the newness of all this,” he said of joining the cast and returning to TV.
“I love going to work,” he added. “I am so happy to hang with this cast…to be able to step into that atmosphere is a joy.”
Hopefully Marg will love going to work this season as much as Dan and decide to stay!
