Laurence Fishburne Will Have a Makeover to Boost CSI Rating
As one of the improvement attempts to boost CSI rating, the show’s main character played by Laurence Fishburne will get a makeover.
When replacing former CSI lead Gil Grissom (played by William Petersen), Fishburne wore glasses and suits, just a typical look for a team leader. But according to CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler on Monday, “You’re going to see Fishburne more settled in his role: a more leadership capacity.” She added, “He’s had a little bit of a wardrobe makeover. Our research said they wanted to see him more comfortable in his clothes.”
Tassler also said that the network spent a lot of time canvassing producers and fans, after ratings for the longtime-running crime drama fell quite sharp upon Fishburne’s arrival last season. Hopefully, the makeover will help bringing back great ratings for the show. The 10th season of CSI will return on September 24.
Well… have a great makeover, Mr. Fishburne!
