CSI is doing a mob-themed episode, thanks to the opening of an actual mafia museum in Las Vegas.

For an episode this fall, the show has cast Frances Fisher (Titanic, The Shield) in a guest star role, playing the wife of a notorious hit man. The episode will take place at The Mob Museum, one of two new mafia-themed museums opening in the city. (The first, The Las Vegas Mob Experience, is already open at the Tropicana; The Mob Museum opens in February.)

Also, former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman will have a cameo in the episode. CSI returns on Sept. 21 and, of course, has a new star on board with Ted Danson joining the team.

    The headline is misleading as I thought a famous gangster film genre actor was going to guest star on the series. It would have been good if they had an episode in the next season where the CSI team faces off with the Armenian Mafia.

    Doesn’t Frances Fisher play Marg H.’s mother in CSI, and isn’t her father a gangster who died around Season 4?

      No, Anita Gillette plays Catherine’s mother… Gee, some fan you are… ( I kid, I kid) :- )

      Catherine’s dad was a casino owner and after she found out who he was, gunned down. IMO, Marg Helgenberger (sp) is one of the best actresses on tv.

    She looks like she could pass for Marg’s real life Mom doesn’t she? lol I haven’t watched much of CSI Las Vegas since William Peterson (Grissom) left. Not the same anymore!

      Considering that she’s only 6 years older than Marg, probably not.
