After having dazzled their audiences with tales of crime in New York, Vegas, and Miami, the producers of CSI have decided to visit a fourth place known for being inhabited with terrible sociopaths. The Internet.

The show, which doesn’t have a name yet, but will undoubtedly adopt something ridiculous like Net Force, will focus on “major crimes that start in the mind, live on-line, and play out into the real world.”

Just think about that. Crimes that start in the mind. Goosebumps.

No word on who will be cast yet, but undoubtedly, the producers have been sitting around a table, discussing that, and being forced to remind each other that, LL Cool J is not available, only to have someone asked about that Iced Tea fella.

5 Atypical Ted Danson Roles http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-atypical-ted-danson-roles/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-atypical-ted-danson-roles/#comments Wed, 13 Jul 2011 20:08:49 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220032 War hero, murder victim, blackfaced minstrel: Ted Danson has played it all.

Today, it was announced that actor Ted Danson will be joining the cast of the hit crime drama CSI. Since he is typically associated with comedic roles (Cheers, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Three Men and a Baby, etc.), the news came as a bit of a shock. However, Danson has veered away from his comedic roots at various times throughout his career, taking on challenging and often bizarre roles. In honor of his latest attempt at career reinvention, we’ve put together this list of five atypical Ted Danson roles.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

Technically, taking a cameo role on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! isn’t really stepping away from comedy. That said, the show has about as much in common with traditional sitcoms as David Lynch has in common with Brett Ratner. So while Danson’s performance as “Little Danson Man” may still be comedic, it is certainly atypical.

Saving Private Ryan

When watching this gritty World War II drama for the first time, the last thing I expected to see was T.V.’s Sam Malone. But somewhere between all the dismembered limbs and dead krauts, Becker managed to pop up. Sure, the role was small, and it wasn’t exactly crucial to advancing the plot. But at the time, the image of a white-haired Ted Danson shooting Germans was so out of character that it’s managed to stick with me for all these years.

Ted Danson’s One-Man Minstrel Show

Of all Ted Danson’s bizarre performances, this might be the strangest. In 1993, the Cheers star performed a racially-charged monologue while wearing blackface at a Friar’s Club roast in honor of his then-girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg. The idea of Danson dating Goldberg is strange enough. But the idea of him dressed like a minstrel while dropping N-bombs is truly mind boggling. Clearly, Danson meant no real offense toward blacks. After all, it was a Friar’s Club roast, and the whole point of such an event is to be offensive. Goldberg, who is black, was in on the joke, and even helped him write his monologue. But even so, the performance went over about as well as a pedophile joke at a Catholic baptism. Actually, that gives me a great idea from my nephew’s christening.

Creepshow

Almost every episode of CSI involves a murder. The good news for Ted Danson is that he’s covered that ground before. In the 1982 horror film Creepshow, he played a character who was murdered in cold blood for sleeping with another man’s girlfriend. What’s even stranger is that the murderer was played by fellow funnyman Leslie Nielsen. Talk about atypical casting.

Gulliver’s Travels

The name Ted Danson isn’t usually associated with political satire. But in 1996, the actor starred in an adaptation of the Jonathan Swift classic, Gulliver’s Travels. The series was well received by critics, and went on to win five Emmy awards, including “Best Miniseries.” Compare that to the recent Jack Black adaptation, which went on to win the Jame Gumb 2011 “Most Annoying Movie I’ve Been Forced to Sit Through on an Airplane Award.” At any rate, we started this list with a tiny Ted Danson, so it’s only fitting that we end on that note, as well.

CSI is getting a new daddy and it’s Ted Danson!! Ever since William Petersen left to pursue a sure-to-be successful film career, the show has had a tough time maintaining its audience. CBS chose not to renew Laurence Fishburne‘s contract after he dedicated two years of his life to making tasteless puns around dead bodies. It’s your turn now, Danson.

Danson will play the CSI supervisor for the grave shift after heading the crime lab in Portland. He comes to the team as they are still grappling with the professional and personal fallout from last season’s take-down of serial killer, Nate Haskell

The casting of Danson caps off an exhaustive search by CBS to find another star worthy enough to help return some luster to the aging CSI franchise. EW learned that offers went out to actors like Tony Shaloub, Robin Williams and John Lithgow before the studio landed on Danson, who’s been enjoying a career resurgence thanks to a critically-acclaimed run on Damages. He received three Emmy nominations for playing Arthur Frobisher. Danson will remain a series regular on Bored to Death. [EW]

Cheer up, Laurence. At least now you’ll have more time to spend with family. Oh… right.

I’m about to make your Friday. Last night Justin Bieber was shot and killed after trying to blast his way out of a standoff with police authorities. Above is the footage of his grisly death. Unfortunately, it’ taken from an episode of “CSI” and not real news footage. Still, it might be your only chance to catch the Biebs riddled with bullets. He also does a weird spastic fall in slo-mo that eradicates any honor from his death. Thanks “CSI” for playing out my fantasy on national television. Tweens, commence your bashing in the comment section. (Vulture)

I have a feeling he's only in there because he wants to be. He's like The Joker. Check it out after jump...

He tells New York Daily News:"I'd had a little to drink. So, as I was coming down the West Side Highway, I asked my cab driver to pull over so I could relieve myself. Suddenly I was surrounded by three cop cars. I said, 'Officer, at least let me finish!' But I actually learned something from the hour-long quality-of-life counselling the judge sentenced me to. Education is better than a fine." When reached for comment CSI: Miami star David Caruso said, "When you're surrounded by three cop cars, you know.... *sunglasses*.... urine trouble."
