An iconic movie star is about ready to have a huge TV role by replacing a departing William Peterson. That is Laurence Fishburne. You have probably seen Fishburne through the Matrix trilogy which is his most well known movie role.
Fishburne will not play the role of Gil Grissom, CSI will write a new character for him.

Laurence Fishburne rules though, I think he’s a good choice.
