Exclusive: 'CSI: NY' Gets 'Beautiful' Cast Addition


The cast of CSI: NY just got a little more, ahem, Beautiful.

Kathleen Munroe, late of ABC Family’s Beautiful People, is joining the cast of CSI: NY in the recurring role of Samantha Flack, kid sis to Eddie Cahill’s Det. Flack. “She’s a bad girl,” explains exec producer Pam Veasey. “She’s trouble. It’s a great dynamic.”

Veasey reveals that the role was originally going to be small, but then they met Munroe and “she was so his sister and so authentically New York and so wonderfully young and beautiful and shifty and dangerous that we were like, ‘Oh my God, this is a great opportunity.’ It adds a great human element to Eddie’s character, and [her presence] will touch a lot of other people, including A.J. and Stella.”

Check back later this week for more CSI: NY scoop from Veasey, including what’s ahead for a certain couple whose fans keep threatening me with bodily harm if I don’t tell them something — anything — soon. Good thing I like my body.

Reaction to Munroe’s casting? Was Veasey and her team wise to sign her to a longer-term deal before another show snapped her up? Does the prospect of a more “human” Don sound appealing to you? Weigh in below in the comments section!

    Later this week for DL news? Yikes I might die from anticipation, (please let there be good news, please let there be good news). SO does later this week mean, Tomorrow? Friday?

  • Jane

    YAY! More Flack! Now if we could just get a good storyline for Hawkes and make Danny a minor character, I would be in CSI: NY heaven.

  • GeishaCat

    Mikey, Mikey don’t do this to me!! I’m with John, define “later this week”… Oh, and can’t wait to see how Sam stirs things up!

  • Daisy

    I don’t know the actress, so I can’t say on that point if I like it or not, but if this means we’re getting finally(!) some good stuff for Eddie Cahill, I’m on board! I don’t like the whole D/L storyline, so I’m in for something different.

  • Jess

    I like this casting. It’s about time they gave Flack a personal storyline.
    Yay! You got us some Danny/Lindsay scoop. Thank you. Can’t wait for it.

  • Laura

    Looks like great casting to me. She does look like Flack! I can’t wait to see a more human side to Flack, and hopefully some interesting storylines for him (and more screentime perhaps?). Now, if only we could get to meet the ‘legendary’ Flack Senior then I would be a very happy fan girl indeed…

  • Jennifer

    I can certainly see the family resemblance. It’s fantastic that we’ll get to see a bit of the non work Flack, I’m hoping we’ll get to see him with his feathers ruffled. I think it’s interesting that they’re bringing in two non-work related characters in S5, I hope that enhances rather than detracts from the show. Given a choice I’d rather see Flack’s sister recurring than Rikki. Rikki was a good character, I’m just not sure how much leverage they would have with her beyond the angstiness which must surely end at some point. News of a couple? Are Mac & Stell finally getting it on? No? Ok, must be something to do with D/L. I hope it’s good.

  • Debbie

    Michael, thank you for the news. I like her (she looks a lot alike Donnie)
    I wonder how she will affect Stella and Adam
    And please… Could you find us if we (Mac/Stell) fans are going to have some good news this season???
    A new bond between them was suggested at the end of Season 4. It would be a pity if the writers decided to skip over that subject!
    Thanks again

  • Marianne

    Anything that means we get more Flack is great news to me. Eddie Cahill’s one of the best things about the show.

  • Jill

    Yay D/L news later in the week! Crosses fingers that it is good news!
    In the meantime, thanks for this scoop!

  • Led

    I just want to see how the writers plan to handle the whole Rikki situation. I hope NY doesn’t turn into Miami 2.0 in relation to the soap opera aspect of the show.

  • Susy

    Wow! She really does look like his sister. This is really exciting. More Flack is only a good thing and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing a more personal side to him if ya know what I mean!!
    I’m assuming the info re. the couple is something about Danny and Lindsay. I’m really, really hoping it’s good news. Those two deserve a break from the angst of S3 and S4.

  • Shane Saunders

    Thanks for the Flack scoop. She kind of does look like she’d be related to Flack! And she’s beautiful!
    And here’s hoping you have great Danny/Rikki scoop later this week. :)

  • Alison

    The Flack sister sounds like she’s going to be an interesting character, especially the bad girl with a cop brother and father, glad she’ll be around.
    I’m crossing my fingers for good Danny/Lindsay news later in the week!

  • Jessie

    The more “human” Don definitely appeals to me. Can’t wait to see him go all Big Brother.
    I too am keeping my fingers crossed for good news re. D/L.
