Now this is exciting… for Sam Malone fans.

Ted Danson, who of late has been proving just what a versatile son-of-a-gun he is by playing the resident scumbag over on “Damages”, is set to play the new team leader over on Jerry Bruckheimer megahit “CSI”. Danson, who claimed fame as womanizing bartender ‘Sammy’ on “Cheers”, would replace Laurence Fishburne.

CBS just sent out the following press release :

LOS ANGELES – July 12, 2011 — Multiple Emmy Award winner Ted Danson will join the cast of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, in a series regular role, on the CBS Television Network. His character will debut in the season premiere on Wednesday, September 21 (10:00-11:00 PM,ET/PT). Danson will play the new CSI Supervisor for the grave shift after heading the crime lab in Portland. He comes to the team as they are still grappling with the professional and personal fallout from last season’s take-down of serial killer, Nate Haskell. “You can create a new character on the page, but until the perfect actor comes along and breathes life into it, it’s just words,” said Executive Producer Carol Mendelsohn. “We’re very excited Ted Danson came along.”

“From the moment we all started talking about therole, it was clear he couldn’t be more perfect,” said Executive Producer Don McGill. “Intelligence, wit, warmth, depth of characterand emotion, he brings it all. And now he’ll have to bring latex gloves, too.”

Ted Danson will remain a series regular on the critically acclaimed HBO series,“Bored to Death.” He has also recently garnered accolades for his roles on “Damages” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Ted Danson will next be seen starring opposite Drew Barrymore and John Krasinsky in “Everybody Loves Whales” to be released in January 2012.
