CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION (CBS) - Elisabeth Harnois ("Miami Medical") has joined the cast of the franchise's flagship. She'll play Morgan Brody, a member of the LAPD - and the estranged daughter of Conrad Ecklie (Marc Vann) - who helps the Las Vegas crew hunt down serial killer Nate Haskell (Bill Irwin). Harnois guest stars in the show's May 5 episode and then presumably will return full-time in season 12.


GAME CHANGE (HBO) - Ron Livingston ("Band of Brothers") has joined the cast of the original movie, about "John McCain's (Ed Harris) 2008 presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore) as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election." He'll play Mark Wallace, a senior adviser to McCain-Palin 2008 who led the debate-preparation team for Gov. Palin. Jay Roach is directing the Playtone-produced project, which also stars Woody Harrelson.


THE GOOD WIFE (CBS) - Kelli Giddish ("Chase") is set to guest star on the show's final two episodes of the season. She'll play an investigator for Lockhart Gardner who used to work with Archie Panjabi's character, a role which may continue into season three.


MORE AS THE STORY DEVELOPS (HBO) - Marisa Tomei ("The Wrestler"), Olivia Munn ("Perfect Couples") and Alison Pill ("In Treatment") are in talks to join the cast of the Jeff Daniels-led drama pilot, from Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and set in the world of cable news. Tomei will play the executive producer of Will McCallister's (Daniels) show with Pill as Maggie, an associate producer on the assignment desk, and Munn as a sexy financial analyst on the same cable network. Greg Mottola is directing.


SONS OF ANARCHY (FX) - Paris Barclay ("In Treatment") has joined the veteran cable drama as an executive producer. There he'll serve as in-house director, having previously helmed two installments of the series. Season four of "Anarchy" rolls out this fall.
