Tony Award winner Liev Schreiber will join the highly rated CBS drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in January in the role of a seasoned investigator. No other details have been announced.

Schreiber is scheduled to star in the Broadway production of Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio at the Longacre Theatre starting on February 9. He received the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play for Glengarry Glen Ross. His other New York stage credits include Othello, Henry V, Hamlet and Cymbeline for the Public Theater. On Monday night, he appeared in The 24 Hour Plays. His film and television credits include The Manchurian Candidate, Scream, and RKO 281.

CSIairs Thursday nights at 9pm. It stars William Petersen, Marg Helgenberger, George Eads, Paul Guilfolye, and Jorda Fox. However, Petersen is taking a brief leave of absence from the show, which will likely coincide with Schreiber's appearances, in order to appear in Conor McPherson's A Dublin Carol at Trinity Repertory in Providence, Rhode Island. That show is slated to run December 1-January 7.
