The CSI beast is going strong still. CBS announced another series regular for the upcoming CSI: Cyber, which is Peter MacNicol. He was previously on CBS’ Numb3rs and legal show Ally McBeal. His role, Assistant Director Stavros Sifter will be the FBI supervisor who is also an insider that has made it his whole career. He will be playing the boss to Patricia Arquette. The series is expected to be a mid-season replacement during the mid season break next year. Peter has yet to address the subject of his new role.
I have always loved the CSI series and I love that they are taking on the cyber subject. It will certainly be a good one and perhaps it should have been done a long time ago. I suppose it is better late than never, but it does make you wonder where their minds are when they decide what shows to create? »

MacNicol will play Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, a career FBI insider and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C. Sifter quickly rose up the ranks and positioned himself in a job where he is the clearing house between FBI Cyber and all other branches of government. He is a shrewd and savvy networker; a charmer with a hint of malice. Drilling down to the core of his “Classified” status, Sifter knows what very few know behind the closed doors of the U.S. Government. The social networks and devices we use on a daily basis are the Government’s way of monitoring its citizens domestically and abroad — therefore, Sifter has the impossible task of controlling the amplification of cyber crime in an era where the collective world communicates electronically. »

David Krumholtz is using the art of drag to become an online weatherman. The actor, perhaps best known for his lead role in the CBS series Numb3rs, has launched WeatherFrom.com, a website where he tells users their local weather while dressed as a stereotypical Jewish grandma named Gigi. Visitors to WeatherFrom.com are prompted to enter their zip code. They then receive one of Gigi's 35 meteorological forecasts, each of which lasts somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes. Today, I learned that the sunny conditions with a chance of rain are akin to every day in Boca Raton. Here's Gigi herself explaining what the project is all about: In an introductory video for the website, Krumholtz explained that it takes him more than four hours to put on Gigi's makeup. "The character's kind of based on my grandmother, and your grandmother, and grandmothers all over the world who have something »

Two-plus-one equals a very happy three! David Krumholtz and wife Vanessa Britting welcomed a daughter, their first child together, a few days ago—most likely on Saturday, when the Numb3rs star tweeted, "I am a parent." But it was last night when he introduced his baby girl to the world, revealing her name and showing off a photo of her adorable face. "Pemma Mae Krumholtz. The girl of my dreams," the proud papa wrote alongside a pic of the swaddled sleeping infant, still in her tiny hospital crib. Nearly two years after getting engaged, Krumholtz and Britting tied the knot May 22, 2010, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel served as groomsmen »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 2013 movie This Is The End was, apparently, not the end for that particular cast of comedy actor chums as The Wrap have confirmed a whole bunch of them will reunite to provide voices for Rogen and Goldberg's next project, the animated movie Sausage Party*.
This includes James Franco (Spring Breakers, Homefront), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street, Superbad), Michael Cera (Juno, Hits), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs, Mr Popper's Penguins) and Nick Kroll (Date Night, Get Him to the Greek), along with Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) to add a female presence.
The movie is described as a "raunchy animated movie about one sausage's quest to discover the truth about his existence." Given the way the meat product is commercially produced, you can't imagine it having the most heartwarming of conclusions. Here's a bit more about the plot...
