Ahh, nepotism is alive and well.
On April 3, CSI: Crime Scene Investigations will have a very special guest star that is near and dear to series star Ted Danson - his daughter, Kate Danson. Kate will play lawyer Jill McDermot in the episode and go head to head with her father, after the CSI team finds a body near a forest and stumbles upon what could be a serial killer and his den of death. This reportedly leads to McDermot and D.B. Russell (father Ted) locking horns.
Kate talked about appearing with him recently.
"I play a lawyer who knows she's in the right and the CSI team have done something wrong," she said. "So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play. "I was really fortunate to get to work with him on CSI. It was so much fun. We never worked together like that. We did a short film together but nothing professional until now, so it was really great going head to head with him."
She added that the character could become a recurring one on the series.
This is not Kate's first role - however, she has not done a lot.
CSI airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
