'CSI' exclusive: Returning star holds key to Dr. Jekyll mystery

Posted on

CSI is bringing back a familiar face to assist Langston (Laurence Fishburne) in his season-long pursuit of Dr. Jekyll.

Tony winner Bill Irwin is set to reprise his role as Nate Haskell (a.k.a. the Dick and Jane Killer) in this season’s final two episodes.

“Nate knows who Dr. Jekyll is, which is kind of interesting since he’s been in prison for the last 11 years,” notes executive producer Carol Mendelsohn. “The [May 20] season finale is all about what it will take to get him to give them a name.”

His return adds a nice twist to the Jekyll plot since, as Mendelsohn reminds us, “It was Nate who pushed Grissom out of the lab and put Langston in back in season 9.”

The finale builds to a violent confrontation with Jekyll, during which “blood will be spilled,” Mendelsohn confirms. “And it will belong to more than one CSI.”
