Exclusive: 'CSI: Miami' Exhumes New Coroner


The 4400‘s Megalyn Echikunwoke (pronounced “Meg”) has been cast as the new coroner on CSI: Miami, sources confirm to me exclusively. She fills the void left by Khandi Alexander, who bolted the procedural at the end of last season because, among other things, she *a* *i******e. Allegedly.

24 fans will recall that Echikunwoke played Pres. Palmer’s daughter, Nicole, in the show’s first season.

Thoughts on Miami‘s new Quincy? Care to take a stab at that asterisk quiz? Comment away!

    She “was miserable,” allegedly?

    The character she played on The 4400 pretty much ruined the series, but the actress was very good in the role. It will be interesting to see how a much younger person will play in this role. Hopefully, she can hold her own with the king of overacting, David Caruso.

    aahhh Michael, it’s Friday! My brain’s too fried for an asterisk quiz…

    Awesome for her, I am glad to see she is going to be on such a successful show as CSI. I may actually go back to watching it now :)

  • eriny

    um…ingrate? lol

  • Turk

    She looks the same as the one she is replacing. And she looks the same as all the others on the show except for H and the lead detective – all young and all good looking.
    Cookie cutter casting.

    Strange, Jimmy, but I thought just the opposite about her on The 4400. I thought the character was interesting but her acting just plain terrible. If anything, the writers probably “dumbed down” the character because she just couldn’t pull it off.
    Geez, thanks Aus, now you made me sad thinking about the 4400’s cancelation. And if would’ve been premiering right about now.

    Hmmmmmm… could be interesting. When she first came on the 4400 I thought her acting was terrible but she grew on me. I hate the asterik quizzes, so I won’t even try.

    she was bitchcake? to use a Newsradio phrase?

  • kailess

    I hate as***** quizes too!
    On one of the spolier sites it says “What’s the story behind this exit? …Let’s just say Alexander had some, um, issues with a certain aspect of the show and leave it at that, K?”
    Anybody know anything more than that?

    So Turk thinks 42 is young?
    (Eva Larue – damn gorgeous still)

    Well, it’s not as if she can make CSI:M any worse than it already is, unlike how her presence killed The 4400.

    I really hated her character in the 4400 and wasn’t convinced by her acting which I thought terrible. She ruined a show otherwise great but I hope she has improved and anyway, she can’t ruin CSI the same way since CSI:M can’t have a Isabelle Tyler type of character.
    PS Now I want the 4400 back!
    PPS Just remembered, she was also in the worst Supernatural episode ever (and I love this show). Her acting then was also very bad but she gave us Dean with much less clothes so that’s a plus!!!

    was immature?

    Looking forward to seeing Megalyn take on this role. I’ve always enjoyed what she brings to her characters and Isabelle (The 4400) was no different. Glad to see her on a new project.
