National Enquirer Blind Item

WHICH former film actress has not been warmly received at her new gig on a long-running TV detective drama? Turns out she’s not only clashing with one of the male stars, but she’s also finding it extremely difficult to memorize the scripts that are loaded with medical and scientific jargon.

Elizabeth Shue in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation?

Lucy Liu in the new Sherlock show.

Momster said...

Oh wait, long-running? My bad.

Except Jeanne Trip did Big Love for 5 years.

I'll always have a soft spot for Elizabeth, she was in the awesomeness that is Adventures in Babysitting, but her acting ability varies. I'll go with her too.

"Don't FUCK with the babysitter!" Hehe

g.strathmore said...

Hmm..Jeanne Tripplehorn and Elizabeth Shue are both good guesses. CSI has more jargon, though. I wonder who the male costar is?

George Eads/Nick Stokes-coworker
Ted Danson/D.B. Russell-former boss
Eric Szmanda/Greg Sanders-coworker
Marc Vann/Conrad Ecklie-current boss
Enrique Murciano/Det. Carlos Moreno-love interest

I have trouble picturing her clashing with any of those guys, though.

g.strathmore said...

The guys on Criminal Minds

Shemar Moore/Derek Morgan-team member
Matthew Gray Gubler/Dr. Spencer Reid-team member
Thomas Gibson/Aaron Hotchner-boss
Joe Mantegna/David Rossi-team member

Are any of those guys troublesome?

My first guess was Tripplehorn. I'd like to think it is her,m because I love Elisabeth Shue. (BTW, she and Ted Danson are fantastic on CSI)

Barton Fink said...

g.strathmore, those are four of the most loveable characters ever. I wonder if the actors themselves are jerks. My little Shemar can't be evil, bless his little naked beach photo heart.

g.strathmore said...

@Barton, I agree.

cindy said...

I have it on good authority that E Shue is a major pain in the arse on the CSI set.

Del Riser said...

It's either Tripplehorn or Shue, I love both of them so this bums me out whomever it is! Both shows have great casts.
Elizabeth strikes me as the one who would be a little fiestier if there was a clash.

Megan said...

Is Elisabeth really that new to CSI though? Jeanne Tripplehorn just showed up, Shue's been there since late last season... I dunno, I just like Adventures in Babysitting, and when on Community Abed & Jeff told Britta "You look like Elisabeth Shue"

FalseProfit said...

How has E-Shue been relegated to TV? That woman was awesome in everything she has done. If you haven't seen Hamlet 2, watch it this weekend. Too funny!

hairydawg said...

Second FalseProfit's recommendation for "Hamlet 2"! Hilarious! My favorite Steve Coogan movie.

Megan said...

I think it's Tripplehorn. Shemar Moore posted a picture of them during rehearsals, and her body language is so tense http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc5j90553H1qgbfyko1_1280.jpg

Sunny said...

@barton
oh my Lord. Shemar just oozes the sexy. Wait. That sounds gross

@reno
I loved that movie when I was a tween. We all felt so bad-ass quoting that line

musesx9 said...

I was thinking of that show that was renamed with the chick from the Battlestar Gallactica reboot...She took over for Kyra Sedgewick, The Closer...?

elle said...

Mary McDonnell on Major Crimes, although you could debate whether that counts as long running since it is new but based heavily on The Closer. Her cast mate? None other than Lt. Harris from Police Academy!!!!! Cranky!

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Tripplehorn on CM. No idea about the guy; Shemar Moore seems like a guy who likes to goof around a bit sometimes, show off the abs and shit, and she seems supertense and serious.
Or Matthew Gray Gubler, he is like a man-child. (not saying this to hate on them, I love them both haha)

SeattleMarge said...

I don't like Jeanne Tripplehorn's character AT ALL

surfer said...

Hahaha - that's exactly what I thought too, Barton!

Lizzie said...

Isn't Jamie Lee Curtis new to one of the crime shows?

Frank The Tank said...

@Lizzie: JLC did a five-ep arc on NCIS last season; though she played a shrink she didn't have to wheeze much jargon.
