As I said earlier this is a really good storyline and I wanted to say that I can understand why in tonight's episode Sheldon would get upset at the doctor that they brought into interrogation.

Hill, I just want to say, "I love the show, and you are so super handsome. How awesome it would be to meet you and actually know for sure you are the one I'm writing/commenting to! You are a great actor. I believe when my daughter gets older she will be so great with drama and acting in general. She is three years old and so very dramatic. (And talking about some ENERGY, boy does she have a lot of it! Chrissy, age 27.

Thanks for the invite to chat with you live at tv.com. The show is my all time favorite. When is your next break from taping the show and when will you be back on the road promoting your book? I need your assistance with a school project and need your feed back as to whether or not it will work. I'm not sure if this allows you send emails, but if you can pls respond. It's very important. (twitter: kroert1) Thanks and keep up the great work.

It was great that Hill attended a live chat, but I was pretty disappointed about which questions/comments were approved. I mean "LOL" isn't really worth posting as well as other short comments. I really hope the chat with George tomorrow will be better & more questions will be approved rather than unnecessary comments like "LOL."

Hi Mr Harper ! First just want to say ALL LOVE AND SUPPORT from Africa !! Yeas they're a lot of fans here for you and all other CSI NY Cast.. So question 1 : If you have to chose now between Actor or Writer, witch one do you want to do more ? ? .. Question 2 : When you start to play act, do you think that play in CSI NY make you more popular around the world ? What did you think to shoot scene with David Caruso and Laurence Fishburne ? .. question 3 : If one day, you will have to write one cast and movie script, witch kind of movie you will write (as drama, comic, ...) ? Question 4 : Can you be a forensic now, after you've see how real forensic do ? Question 5 : What do you feel and think about work with Mr Gary Sinise, Mrs Melina Kanakaredes, Mr Carmine Giovinazzo, and all others ? and Last Question 6 : How did you feel when you received for the first time your CSI NY cast ? Thanks again if you reply to all of the questions !! And again Love and Support from Africa

Hi there, Hill. My question is about your writing rather than acting. Are your fans mostly female, male or a mix? I've read "The Conversation" which I enjoyed immensely but have the feeling from social media outlets that fans are mostly women who (let's be frank) kinda have a crush on you. I'd like to hear about male fans, since it takes two people to have the kind of honest dialogue you promote in the book, but I wish I saw it happening...

Hi Mr Harper, greetings from England. Thank you for chatting. I got totally hooked on NY last year, and love the characters particularly. For me, the dynamics between them all are the strongest part of the show. Will there be more chance for Hawkes and romance of any kind, with any, and following the fabulous 'Grounds for Deception', will there be more development for Mac and Stella? Hope so!

Hey Hill Harper. So nice of you to chat with us! It's very exciting! I Love the show! Watch it any chance I get. So I had two questions for you: What do you and the rest of the cast like to do around set in between shooting? and What are your favorite types of scenes to shoot? Emotional? Autopsy scenes? Scenes with the cool lab gadgets? Thanks so much for taking the time to answer the fans' questions. It's really cool when actors take the time to show that they appreciate that we appreciate them! Good luck to you and the rest of the cast, Gary, Anna, Eddie, Carmine, Robert, A.J., and Melina for the rest of the season!

I love all of the characters on CSINY. What is it like to work with each of the actors? My husband is retired military, one son in the Navy, two sons that are former marines. Just wanted to let Gary know how much we appreciate all that he does for the military. Keep the great story lines coming.

First,I'd like to say that I'm a huge fan of CSI:NY (and the other two CSIs.) And I have two questions.
1. What was the first thing you thought when you came on set of CSI:NY for the first time?
2. What was the most dangerous thing you had to do on the show?

Keep up the good work! :D

The question I have for Hill Harper isn't about CSI. It's more about the book that he wrote: Letters To A Young Brother. I've read it, and although i'm not a "young brother" i'm actually a girl, i really loved it. Especially Letters To A Young Sister- now i can absolutely relate to that. But, what i want to know is, after writing Letters To A Young Brother and reading all of the young guys reponses- how did you feel? It most be a life changing experience to actually reach out to so many guys through a book where they can depend on you to give them meaningful advice. Hill, you are truly a phenomenal person, and a GREAT role model for all young brothers out there.

Tv seems to be changing with the rise of cable shows providing more opportunities for scripted television. But with your experience, being a part of a huge franchise that is enormously popular, what do you recommend for aspiring TV writers? Obviously being employed as a writer is a goal, but so is telling great stories. What are the limitations in regards to story telling, on big network television as opposed to smaller and often critically acclaimed shows?
