'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.


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.

Pete Holmes on his talk show's return (and goofing around with Mark-Paul Gosselaar)

Between its litany of pretaped sketches, its unique interview methods, and its host’s largely personal monologues, The Pete Holmes Show doesn’t look like a typical late-night talk show. And that’s sort of the point. “We’re going for a very transparent, authentic, silly, safe, fun show,” Holmes says. “Safe, but not boring.”

Clearly, Holmes and co. are doing something right — their Conan O’Brien-produced experiment returns to TBS Monday at midnight. Shortly after Holmes taped his first post-hiatus episode, he spoke with EW about getting guests to open up, getting advice from Conan, and getting Mark-Paul Gosselaar to strap on one hell of a wig.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Is it weird at all for you to be the interviewee instead of the interviewer?
PETE HOLMES: You know, it’s funny — the reason I started doing a podcast was because every time I was on someone else’s podcast, I would take it over a little bit. So yeah, it’s not a natural role for me. [Laughs] Yammerin’. So much yammerin’.

I almost feel like I should be asking you for tips.
No, I have no tips — except if you want people to tell you something private about them, tell them something private about you.
