"Gal" Friday! CSI's Marg Helgenberger

To coincide with today's crossover with Karswell's "The Horrors Of It All" blog, I selected a "Gal" Friday that would tie-in with our crime-theme.

Marg Helgenberger is one hot babe, and she's even more age appropriate for ye olde Catacombs host than last weeks rather youthful starlet. When you consider this weeks crummy news that her CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) co-star, William Peterson is finally bowing out of the series during the upcoming 9th season, then lovely Marg is suddenly the top remaining cast member. They couldn't do better than highlight her fine acting contributions to the show, even with the likely addition of another as-yet-undetermined-marquee replacement for Peterson's "Gil Grissom" character.

Marg also has some series genre chops that makes her selection today long overdue for the Catacombs "Gal" Friday spotlight and since CSI is a favorite of my older daughter, even doubly so. Ms. Helgenberger appeared in the sci-fi actioner, Species, and its first sequel. She also popped up in the TV adaptation of Stephen King's "The Tommyknockers" and the Emmy Award winning actress has been a featured player in many other popular films.

Did I mention that she has flashed a little "skin" in some of her filmed appearances. Oh, yeah!
