(NEW YORK) -- Ted Danson will replace Laurence Fishburne on CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation when it returns in the fall.
The 63-year-old actor will play the role of a new CSI Supervisor working the graveyard shift at Portland's crime lab, according to USMagazine.com.
The Emmy-winning former Cheers star has been busy of late, with heralded recurring roles on the legal drama Damages and on the HBO comedies Curb Your Enthusiasm and Bored to Death. Danson will reportedly continue to appear on the latter in addition to his new CSI gig.
