Ted Danson explains the secret to comedy, why actors keep working

Ahead of CSI‘s Sept. 28 season premiere (10 p.m. ET on CBS), Ted Danson joined EW’s Kyle Anderson for a SiriusXM Town Hall to talk about his lengthy career. Listen to two highlights below.

In the first clip, after an audience member asks him about being mocked on Seinfeld (he has neither as much money as George Costanza thought he had, nor a plane), Danson reveals the secret to comedy: “I’ve discovered that you don’t have to be the one telling the joke. As long as you’re in the room with funny, you get credit for funny,” he says. Thinking back to taping Cheers with multiple cameras in front of a live audience, which meant actors had to stay alive even when they weren’t the focus of a scene, he explains, “So you have a very funny joke, right. All of the sudden, you’d notice everybody in the cast is crossing behind you just at the right moment of the funny—so they were part of a very funny joke, they were part of that shot. If you had a dumb joke, it was like tumbleweeds. You couldn’t find anyone. All of the sudden, they’d all duck behind the bar to pick something up, or run off someplace else. You would be all by yourself with your non-funny joke.” (He goes on to reminisce about Cheers costar Woody Harrelson insisting he come to the premiere of his film Doc Hollywood, which includes a joke about Danson, and how he got him back in the film Ted.)

In the second clip, Danson admits that walking through airports is how an actor knows where they are career-wise. “Here’s my motto: Keep working. Because otherwise what happens is, somebody will have watched a rerun of Sam Malone when I’m 34 to 44, and then they’ll see me on the street now and go, ‘Geez, you look like s–t,'” he says. “But if you keep working, people realize, ‘Oh, no, that’s alright. I saw CSI. Alright, I get it. He’s aging.'” READ FULL STORY

'CSI' First Look: Mark-Paul Gosselaar plays twins in the premiere

When news broke that Mark-Paul Gosselaar would be guest-starring on the season 15 premiere of CSI not once, but twice, fans immediately had questions. And now, we have (at least physical) answers.

We’ve got an exclusive first look at Gosselaar’s time on the show, during which he plays twins Jared Briscoe and Paul Winthrop. And as the photos illustrate, one of the twins is more of the murdering type, while the other is described as a “pillar of the community who insists on his brother’s innocence,” according to CBS.

Peter MacNicol cast as series regular on CBS's upcoming 'CSI: Cyber'

Emmy-winner Peter MacNicol has joined the cast of CSI: Cyber. 

The Ally McBeal actor will play Stravros Sifter, assistant director for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C., and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan, played by Patricia Arquette. Sifter is described as “a shrewd and savvy networker” and “a charmer with a hint of malice.” MacNicol joins Arquette and Charley Koontz in the midseason series, the fourth spin-off in the highly successful CSI franchise.

The show—produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television—will premiere sometime in January, airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar to star opposite Mark-Paul Gosselaar on 'CSI'

Mark-Paul Gosselaar will play a notorious serial killer on CSI this fall.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar will also not play a notorious serial killer on CSI this fall.

Confused? Here’s the deal: EW can exclusively reveal that the Franklin & Bash star (who, let’s face it, you still know best as Zack Morris on Saved By the Bell) has booked an arc on CBS’s venerable procedural—and that he’ll be playing twins named JAred Briscoe and Paul Wintrhop. One of the brothers is an unrepentant murderer about to be executed for his crimes; the other, according to CBS, is “a real estate magnate and a pillar of the community who insists on his brother’s innocence.” Neither, presumably, has a cell phone that looks like this.

The fifteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premieres Sunday, Sept. 28 on CBS.

'CSI' original star to exit after 14 seasons

CSI will lose one of its original stars, Paul Guilfoyle, by the end of the current season, EW has confirmed. The actor, who has played Captain Jim Brass since the CBS show debuted in 2000, is only one of two original stars left on the show; George Eads, who plays Nick Stokes, will be the lone remaining original actor when season 15 kicks off in the fall.

“Paul made Capt. Brass a standout character,” CSI exec producers Carol Mendelsohn and Don McGill said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news. “He is not just an original cast member, he is an original. In a show about forensics, fans always looked forward to the handcuffs coming out, and Capt. Brass putting his spin on the crime of the week, just as Paul Guilfoyle put his indelible stamp on the character and the show. He will be missed.” READ FULL STORY

'Intelligence' promo touts Marg Helgenberger's biggest challenge yet -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

On CSI, Marg Helgenberger had a hand in catching some pretty bad people, but on the upcoming CBS drama Intelligence, she’s not doing so much tracking down as she is “following around a charming devil with a chip in his brain.”

Not a bad gig, if you ask us.

For more on Helgenberger’s new series, which stars Lost alum Josh Holloway (as the aforementioned charming devil), check out an exclusive look at a promo that debuts tonight during CSI‘s 300th episode, in which Helgenberger makes a guest appearance.

Intelligence debuts Feb. 24 on CBS.

Fall TV: Six toughest time slot battles (and which show will win)

It’s war! Next week broadcasters shove the bulk of their new shows into the spotlight and anxiously count how many viewers show up to watch. Even in this era of heavy DVR use, a show’s time slot still matters plenty — just ask NBC’s Revolution, which was hugely boosted whenever it ran behind original episodes of The Voice last season (or any show that runs against The Voice, for that matter). Here are six of the most interesting new top time-period battles this fall — and who we think will win.
