28 February 2011, Singapore – Fans of pop sensation Justin Bieber can catch CSI Season 11 tomorrow 1 March 2011 at 10pm (Singapore time), a first and exclusive on StarHub TV Channel 511’s AXN.
Bieber will be making his prime-time TV debut on the premier of CSI Season 11. This crime hit will air on AXN on 1 March 2011, showing three times a week from Tuesdays to Thursdays making it a first for new episodes premiering on AXN.
The first episode of CSI Season 11 is for Bieber fans and detractors. Premiering at nearly 15 million viewers in the US, the show ranked first in its timeslot, proving Bieber to be a huge ratings draw.
Pretty face Bieber plays troubled teen Jason McCann faces a terrible decision regarding his only brother, which leads him into an inevitably explosive confrontation with the CSIs. Bieber worked with an acting coach to prepare for this role. George Eads, who plays CSI Nick Stokes, shared a number of scenes with Bieber and praised the budding actor “If he can stand up in front of God knows how many people and dance and sing, he can say a couple of lines acting… he’s a really cool kid.“
In the absence of Dr. Raymond Langston (Laurence Fishburne), last seen fighting for his life after being stabbed by psychopath Nate Haskell in the previous season’s finale, Stokes rises to the occasion. He emerges as Grissom’s greatest student when he displays an innate skill for reading bugs, much like how Grissom ‘the Bugman’ had cracked cases before.
It’s not all crime and bugs this season, for love is also in the air. Fans of CSI supervisor Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) will be pleased to note that she will have a love interest in the form of Detective Vartann (Alex Carter, Burn Notice).
Expect an interesting entourage of guest stars. They include Playboy Bunny Holly Madison, Elliot Gould from Ocean’s Eleven and Friends and Dita Von Teese who will portray a classic Hollywood femme fatale. You’ll get to see old and new faces with fan favourite Jorja Fox returning to the series, along with two new cast members, Katee Sackoff from Battlestar Galatica and 24 and Sienna Guillory from Eragon. Sackoff will play a tough, feisty investigator with a quick fuse while Guillory comes on board as the show’s full time bomb tech.
