CSI Miami

Hey Y'all!!

Thanks for all your emails that came in last week. Hopefully you will be able to post your comments here on the Blog again. I appreciate your patience!

Well, as Ute so astutely discovered, my episode of CSI Miami is going to be airing on March 20th. I just went in to record some additional dialogue for my part yesterday - less than a week away from the air date! My hats off to these post production people who work against such an insane schedule. The show will not even be completed until 3/17 and it airs on 3/20. Amazing! Click here to see the CSI Miami Website.

I don't get in a lot of TV time as I spend all my free time online with y'all, but if I did, what shows would you suggest? What are your MUST-SEE-TV shows?

All Things Possible!

    This show on CBS called Cold Case. I don't watch it a lot but the times that I do it always has a well thought out plot, and escalating story scheme that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    Hi Christopher - I'm glad your blog site is accepting comments again. I am so sorry about the loss of Dana Reeve. When I saw that she had passed on the news, I thought of you immediately and how you had had your picture taken with her. I hope the Reeve legacy lives on to see cures for the dibilitating diseases and afflictions that those two had to endure.

    I await your TV program on the twentieth. Lucky for me that "Medium', is a rerun or I would be torn. I don't watch much TV, but at the top of my viewing list is CBS Sunday Morning. Just about anything that HBO brings is watchable, especially, "The Soprano's, Rome and Deadwood". Don't miss, "My Name is Earl". It's a stitch.

    I'm bummed today as I just learned that Aerosmith has cancelled their concert that was to happen Friday night at the Bresslin. I had great seats too. At least I got to make up for it by ushering at the Children's concert today, featuring the Symphony Orchestra.

    I'll se you Monday.

    Hi Chris,

    I watch TV series enough to tell you about them..but it is difficult to say must-seen-ones.. it depends what kind of series you like.. i can tell you the ones i like and why..

    "Allias" for action (and because Jennifer Garner playing in it),
    "Lost" for its original scenario and surprises,
    "Grey's Anatomy" for its challenges of life and medicine career ..
    "CSI Miami" and for its detective's problem solving methods .
    and " Two and a Half man" makes me laugh a lot.. i also agree with Anonymous about " My Name is Earl"

    I am in Turkey and therefore i can watch the episodes a little bit later than the US but not too late.. i believe i will be able to watch the CSI Miami episode which you are in soon enough..

    Before i go i like to thank you for this great forum.. when i saw it first i didn't realize how it worked, how you brought up great topics once in a while and corresponded with everyone.. and starting from yours, there are many sincere and very valuable contributions are here from everyone..

    i already feel inspired by your humble, generous and courageus attitude and approach to life.. i am here because of that inspiration.. this site make me feel like i want to do better for myself, for my loved ones and for the world believing in aiming high and without considering (much) limitations ..

    I LOVE THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE!! Even a question like "What's your favorite TV show" turns into an uplifting experience. Thank You!

    Thanks Babyphat (great name) for suggesting Cold Case. I haven't seen that one but have some friends involved on the fringes. It seems to be getting great ratings.

    Hey Mimi!! I'm so glad you (and Lara) like "Earl". I think that show has a great theme not to mention on of my best pals(Chris Durand) stunt-doubles Earl (Jason Lee). BTW my little part on CSI Miami is quick(a scene or two) in the very beginning, so if you want to jump back over to Medium after that, go for it! ;-) Sorry about Aerosmith.

    Hey Lara from Turkey!! Thanks for your wonderful comments and for watching 21/2 men. My buddy and movie son from George of the Jungle 2, Angus T. Jones, is the 1/2 on that show. A real comedian!

    All Things Possible!

    Wow, CSI Miami, one of my favs! I would also suggest CSI, the original, just can't get enough of the CSI shows! I second Alias, Medium, My Name is Earl, Two and a Half Men, Grey's Anatomy and add Without a Trace to the list!

    Smallville is great too, I totally see you as Clark Kent, b'cuz you would definitely would make an excellent Superman!

    Hope all is well for you Chris.

    Take Care.

    Does anyone think that it's wierd that people have instant messenger on their cell phones? Or that for some reason everyone walks around with I-pods in their ears ALL DAY LONG? I think the cell phone and I-pods are taking away from just plain ole' day to day interaction with people, face to face. I wonder what they'll invent next?
    Back to the topic... another great show would be..well I'm so out of the loop with tv, anyone else have any other suggestions?

    Good to see this forum up and running again! :)

    Regarding the last topic and the passing of Dana: what an interesting view on the organs being related to different emotions; it truly makes sense! I took a Chakra (drawing) course last year and learned a bit about the different energy circles in the body being connected to seperate functions, emotions, even animals, symbols, flowers and colours! It really is worth looking into and fun to discover the logic in it.

    @Babyphat: yes it is kinda strange to see all the high tech stuff popping up in the weirdest places, isn't it?! In fact, I thought I was being silly talking to my dogs all the time, but now I don't feel so silly anymore as I constantly run into people talking to themselves (or so it seems..) with their earplug and cellphone chatting away..On the other hand; if it wasn't for all this technology I certainly wouldn't be here today! I recently 'discovered' MSN and it's a cheap solution to chatting to friends on the other side of the globe. ATP!

    We run a bit behind with all the US tv shows here in the Nethies, and I've never heard of 'Earl' before but I will keep a lookout for it. 'Grey's Anatomy' just started here but I never watched it so far. I liked 'Lost' a lot, the first season, and not just because there's a Hobbit in it! I try to enjoy 'Mc Leod's Daughter's' as much as I can but it aires at an unconvenient time..

    Being a Kieren-fan (hi hi) I have to throw in 'One Tree Hill' of course (I'm sure Ute agrees with me on that) and in addition I'm hoping to see 'Wildfire' on Dutch telly soon.

    I'll be sure to notify the entire Dutch population of your appearance on CSI, Chris, when the time comes! ;)

    Chris, i enjoy watching your buddy, Angus T. Jones, very much and i think as far as his contribution to the series is concerned he is definitely a full one man, not half.. when i watched your movie the first time about a week ago, i noticed him right away and especially enjoyed his kicks to his false daddy -:) .. i hope it wasn't too hard on him to loose weight for the movie.. it seems worth it though.. you also are very good in that movie... i think it is pretty hard role to pull it off that good.. to me it seems like it was a great challenge to play such a role since i don't see a mid way.. the result could be either really good or bad.. so congrats on taking the risk and doing it very well..

    babyphat83 i share your concern about people being involved with technology in a unhealthy way. technology can be great to give us a chance to be here from all over the world as Jaschenka said, to watch movies and series but not in a way you explained or when the kids spent hours on computer games ..

    BTW: my real name is Ufuk and it means horizon in Turkish.. Lara is my nick name which i use in the Forums since Ufuk seems to be hard for some people.. i thought i should share this..

    Just a quick comment as I am between rehearsals myself (directing a production of "Disney's Beauty and the Beast") but I had to say that I try not to miss "Battlestar Galactica" - the new version of course - as it is not only science fiction but great human drama as well in my view!

    Looking forward to seeing CSI on Monday - I'll have to tape it though to enjoy later.

    Looking forward to CSI Monday night and doing my best to pass the word around! Hope to hear, Dave, about your Beauty and the Beast production sometime. No favorite TV shows to report, but enjoy hearing everyone else's.

    Hey Chris!

    It's your old buddy Kerry!

    Happy to read that Lansing & the rest of the world get's to see you even if only for a couple of seconds on tv.

    Speaking of tv... must see tv that is: Grey's Anatomy is funny and real. No cartoon charaters there. The Closer and House are also pretty great, and Monk is always there for a good laugh.

    btw ... the email you gave me doesn't work anymore!? Tried to email you when my last show opened and it came back.


  • At 6:07 AM, March 18, 2006 , Anonymous Ute said...

    Hm, I don't know about MUST-SEE, but like Dave I try not to miss an episode of the new "Battlestar Galactica". I was a bit sceptic because I am one of those who love the original show, but I found the new one surprisingly good, though a bit dark. The characters are good and the stories are interesting. We just began with the show here this year, you guys are way ahead of us.

    Like Jaschenka so rightly pointed out, everything with Kieren naturally is a MUST for us, but luckily "One Tree Hill" and "Wildfire" are both great shows, so we love to watch.

    I think I said before that I love all "CSI" incarnations and I also watch "24", which I think is a phantastic show if you can get past the violence. We just finished season 4 a week ago or so. Though I think it was a bit weaker than the last seasons I still enjoyed it.

    Another great show to watch is Stargate SG-1. Can't quite believe it's been running for 10 years now - wow! I haven't seen enough of "Stargate Atlantis" so far to really recommend that, but the pilot was fun.

    Have a good weekend, everyone.

    Hey Everyone!! Great to hear from you all!

    Sherbear, I really appreciate your endorsement for being Clark Kent. The new guy they got for the movie looks a lot like Christopher Reeve and I wish them the best with that project. I believe it's coming out in June.

    Hey Jaschenka! Thanks for your kind words about Dana Reeve. Also, regarding Technology and Babyphat's coments, we're looking into the possibility of doing a live video forum on the website sometime in the next year (possibly) through a video phone technology called SKYPE - you can get videophone now on your computer at

    Hey Lara - I love that your Turkish name, Ufuk, means Horizon. What a beautiful and hopeful connotation!!

    DAVE!! So great to hear from you. I'm sure you haven't had much time to watch TV with all the Beauty/Beast work you've been doing but thanks for the "Battlestar Gallactica" suggestion. You got a thumbs up from UTE and I trust her opinion! How is the show going? How long is the run? Big audiences?

    HEY KERRY!!! Great to her from you to. You can contact me through the CONTACTS link on this site. Those emails come directly to me.

    Thanks Ute for the show suggestions. I love a good Kieren show like the next guy! And for Stargate Alliance, I'm glad to hear that was a good piolot. I auditioned for it a couple of years ago but never heard from them again. I don't know if I could act in zero gravity anyway.

    Have a great week all and don't forget to watch my show tonight!

    Hey, the lucky ones who can watch the show tonight, enjoy it for us (the ones who can't watch it yet) too..

    Chris, thank you very much for your kind comments..indeed it is hopeful.. in Sufism we believe that the meaning of a name is likely to effect the personal improvement.. so mine is not bad -:)

    Have a great week everyone with nice and sunny days,

    Hope to see you in more shows soon!

    Caught CSI tonight - nice job!

    Thanks for asking about Beauty and the Beast. We had a pretty good opening weekend and our second weekend should be better - unlike Broadway, we only run two weekends. The show is getting very good comments from our audiences and our music director overheard people talking about how good the show was while she was shopping for shoes today (she didn't know the people talking about the show). It's a joy to watch the audiences reactions each night - especially the kids. Apparently our "transformation" from Beast to Prince is very effective and a good cap to the show. I had a professional magician who designed the illusion for us.

    Anyway, I could go on all night. In another week I move on to the next show - I will be playing Pilate in "Jesus Christ Superstar" for another group. It will be nice to just focus on my performance instead of worrying about everyone else's!

    Take care.

    Did anyone get to see the CSI show? I was studying and fell asleep so I didn't get to see it. How was it?


  • At 5:45 AM, March 21, 2006 , Anonymous Mimi Lalonde said...

    ALL RIGHT CHRIS!!! You were a very believable Pete. I am writing CBS to ask who the peeping tom was played by and to suggest that we see more of him in the future. I think you deserved more exposure (pardon the pun)than the short mention at the begining, but nobody asked me to help write the episode. I hope the CSI role gets you more work, as your acting skills are improving. Break a leg.

    Fabulous job on CSI Miami Chris! A little creepy as "Peeping Pete" but loved seeing you on the small screen again, can't wait to see more!

  • At 1:42 PM, March 22, 2006 , Blogger Kerry said...

    CSI part was NICE! Very nice facial reactions in there! You gave a lot of dimension to your character for the short time you were on screen. YAY YOU! And they talked about your character a bit throughout the episode giving the illusion of a bigger role. Hoping more wonderful things come your way soon.

    I agree with Sherbear. It is a little creepy seeing you in the role of "Peeping Pete". Great job on convincing the audience that you were sneaky and had something to hide. Bravo! You were awesome.

    Awwww Shucks!! Thank you all so much for your lovely comments and staying up late to watch the show. Thank you Lara, Ute, Jaschenka, Sherbear, Sue, babyphat, Dave, and Nisha! You guys are wonderful!

    Dave! I'm so excited to hear that Beauty and the Beast is going great and you got some unsolicited compliments!

    Stay tuned. New topic: Nutrition tools.

    Thanks for your excitment concerning Beauty and the Beast. Tonight's show was just about as close to perfect as I could expect and we got a very long standing ovation from the audience at the end (we've had a couple others during the run of the show but not like this!).

    Fortunately, after this show is done this weekend I am off to a conference in San Diego for a few days - hope the weather is good in southern CA - and I will be making a trip up to Disneyland after the conference. Should be a great break without having to lose all of the "magic" at one time.

    Again - good to see you on CSI. I look forward to Nutrition Tools.

    Hi chris caught you on Csi you were great as I new you would be, from the comments about you being sneaky and creepy I guess that says it all you did a yeomans job on the part. Now we need to see a lot more of you for a longer time. Like another movie perhaps.....So sorry for Danas padding she was a wonderful person feel bad her son had to endure both deaths in a short time. I know he is loved by everyone but its still hard and a sad time for him. He has my prayers and thoughts. again your forum is so great and uplifting to all you have the best insight for someone as young as yourself and in your difficult profession. waiting for your next topic as always. all of you are in my thoughts and prayers today that we all have a great month coming up. as always Tommy
