TONY AWARD WINNER LIEV SCHREIBER ("GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS") JOINS "CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION" IN A RECURRING ROLE

Schreiber To Make His First Appearance In A Broadcast Television Series

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25 -- Tony Award winning actor Liev Schreiber joins the cast of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION in his first appearance in a broadcast television series, playing the recurring role of a seasoned CSI who has established a strong reputation in various police departments across the country before joining the veteran team at the Las Vegas Crime Lab. He will first appear in the series' twelfth episode, to be broadcast in January 2007 on the CBS Television Network.

"I'm a huge Liev Schreiber fan. On stage or in film, I think he's one of the finest actors of his generation," says Carol Mendelsohn, executive producer of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION. "We first sat down with Liev earlier this summer to discuss the possibility of him appearing as a recurring character on CSI. We knew it was a long shot, he really doesn't do television. But he was patient and I think amused, as we promised that we'd create a character for him that he couldn't refuse to play. Excitingly for us, he collaborated in this process. And we've got a wonderful, complex character as a result. Everyone at CSI -- writers, cast, crew -- is honored to have him on the show and is looking forward to working with him."

"After meeting the people who run CSI, it immediately becomes apparent why it has consistently been one of the top shows on television. I am a fan, how could I say no?" says Schreiber.

Schreiber won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play for his work as Richard Roma in the 2005 Broadway revival of "GlenGarry Glen Ross." In the summer of 2006, he starred as Macbeth at the Delacorte Theater in New York City's Central Park. Schreiber's many feature film credits include "The Omen," "The Manchurian Candidate," "The Sum of All Fears," "Spring Forward," "Kate and Leopold," "The Hurricane," "Hamlet," "Ransom," "A Walk on the Moon," "Big Night," "Party Girl," "The Daytrippers," "Walking and Talking," all three "Scream" movies, and the upcoming film "The Painted Veil." He made his directorial debut in 2005 with the movie "Everything is Illuminated." Schreiber's television credits include the original television movie "RKO 281," in which he portrayed Orson Welles, "Lackawana Blues," "Spinning Borris," "Buffalo Girls," "People V" and "The Sunshine Boys." Schreiber has served as narrator for many documentaries on PBS, as well as for HBO Sports. His upcoming projects include the feature film "Love in the Time of Cholera" and the Broadway production of "Talk Radio."

CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION is a fast-paced drama about a team of forensic investigators trained to solve crimes by examining the evidence. They are on the case 24/7, scouring the scene, collecting the irrefutable evidence and finding the missing pieces that will solve the mystery. Gil Grissom, shift supervisor, heads the team of investigators at the Crime Lab in Las Vegas. The team includes Catherine Willows, a hard-working single parent with a checkered past and a teenage daughter she's raising on her own; Warrick Brown, a top analyst with insider knowledge of the gambling world; Nick Stokes, a true-blue stand-up guy who empathizes with victims via his own experiences; Sara Sidle, a dedicated and inquisitive investigator who has more than a professional interest in Grissom; and Greg Sanders, the wacky tech analyst turned field investigator. The CSI team members also work closely with Capt. Jim Brass, the former chief, now assigned to Homicide, and Dr. Albert Robbins, the ever-professional medical examiner. They are also supported by David Hodges, a lab technician with a specialty in trace and foreign-substance analysis, and Sofia Curtis, a former officer-turned-CSI, whose frustration with lab politics has led her to return to the police force.
