CSI: NY Recruits Peter Fonda

Peter Fonda

Peter Fonda (‘Easy Rider,’ ‘Ulee’s Gold’) is heading to CSI: NY. Entertainment Weekly reports the Oscar-nominated actor will appear in two episodes of the CBS drama in late April.

Fonda will play William Hunt, one of Mac Taylor’s (Gary Sinise) former partners. The two will come back into contact when one of the criminals they sent to prison is released and it turns out he is bent on vengeance toward Hunt.

While most of his career has been spent in film, Fonda has appeared in several TV movies and he has guest-starred on a few shows including ER.

CSI: NY airs on CBS Fridays at 9pm eastern/8pm central.
