Primetime Emmy Award winner Laurence Fishburne recently signed on to CBS' drama series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," where he will join the cast as a former pathologist who is now working as a traveling college lecturer. He was recently seen in "21," opposite Kevin Spacey, and can soon be seen in "Days of Wrath," opposite Amber Valetta and Wilmer Valderrama. Additionally Fishburne returned to Broadway on April 2008 at the Booth Theatre for a limited engagement of the one man show, "Thurgood," about the life of Thurgood Marshall. His performance earned him a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.

She most recently appeared in Twentieth Century Fox's live action/CGI features, "Garfield" and "Garfield 2: A Tale of Two Kitties." She was also recently seen starring in two independent features, "The Truth About Love" and "If Only," which she produced with her production company, LoveSpell Entertainment. Hewitt is also known to television audiences as Sarah Reeves from the award-winning drama "Party of Five."

Hayden Panettiere is best known as the indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet on NBC's drama "Heroes," which earned a Primetime Emmy Nomination in 2007 for Outstanding Drama Series. In July 2008, she received a Teen Choice Award for Choice Female Actress in a Television Drama Series. Panettiere received the Genesis Wyler Award from The Humane Society of the United States for her impassioned efforts in raising awareness of animal welfare worldwide. Her film credits include "Fireflies," opposite Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe and Emily Watson, "The Architect," opposite Anthony LaPaglia and Isabella Rosselini, and "Mr. Gibb," co-starring Bill Sadler and Tim Daly.
