Think you can succeed where Jim Carrey and Laurence Fishburne have failed? If you’ve got a great impression of Lieutenant Horatio Cane from CIS: Miami, played by the one-and-only David Caruso, now’s your chance to be recognized!
CBS.com announced the launch of a contest to find the best impersonation of Horatio. Starting today and running through Feb. 22, fans can log on and upload a 30-second or less video of themselves, acting out one of Horatio’s many memorable one-liners from the show.
If you make the top 10, chosen by a combination of public votes and CBS.com judges, you’ll find out on March 1. The top 5 will then be announced March 8, top 3 on March 15 and finally, the big winner will be named on March 22.
“Ever since we created Horatio, the fans have been passionate about the character, sunglasses and all,” says David of his character. “For years, everyone from Jim Carrey to Laurence Fishburne has tried to do their best imitation of him but I think the fans are the ones who get it right. Now is the chance for them to showcase their best.”
