Cast updates: Jorja on CSI's mind

One of the more high-profile cast departures last year was Jorja Fox's exit from the forensics hit CSI. The actress wanted to leave her cushy gig to pursue other interests, both professional and personal.

However, the option was left open for her to return for a few episodes, and it appears as if that is exactly what she is going to do. reports that Fox has signed on to appear in the ninth season premiere of CSI, which airs next fall. Details of her return remain under wraps, but she allegedly won't be returning in a flashback.

NBC's island-locked drama Crusoe has secured its cast, adding Sam Neill, Sean Bean, and Joss Ackland to the fall show, according to Variety. Neill recently starred in Showtime's The Tudors as Cardinal Wolsey, Bean is well known as Boromir from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and 80-year-old Brit Joss Ackland appeared in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (as well as several other less-cool things).

Sci-Fi Channel has nabbed the excellent CCH Pounder for its supernatural drama Warehouse 13. Pounder, who played Detective Claudette Wyms in The Shield, will now be in charge of a secret government organization in Warehouse.

Elsewhere, The Hollywood Reporter says that Ron Perlman (Hellboy) will play the president of the motorcycle club that's the center of FX's new show Sons of Anarchy, and Eric Lively (brother of Gossip Girl's Blake), Tony Todd, and Gil Bellows have been cast in Fox's 24 prequel telemovie.

    I guess in the end vindictiveness comes back full circle. During season 1, that new CSI trainee was killed during that first season because Warrick didn't stay w/ her at the crime bad karma came and bit him in the @ss. (Sad to see Dourdan's character gone though, I enjoyed Warrick Brown)

    I am sad they killed off Warrick. He was a good actor. However, I am glad Sarah will be back at least for one show. I had always hoped that Sarah

    and Grissom would get married one day. God only knows.

    Jorja just left! And now she's coming back? Guess reality hits on how hard it is to get gigs in Hollywood.

    Yay! Jorja!! To bad it's just for one episode.
    But It's nice Lauren Lee Smith is joining the crew.
    Would be even nicer if Sara dumped Grissom for Lauren Lee Smith...but...that will probabbly never happen.
    Still, a girl can dream...
