'Extra' Scores 'CSI' Cameo for Kobe

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant told Mario Lopez he'd love to have a walk-on cameo on "CSI: Miami" -- and "Extra" made it happen! We can report "CSI: Miami" has officially offered Bryant a guest role on the hit show next season!

Now that producers have given the okay, star David Caruso says he wants to come up with something interesting for Byrant's storyline. "Kobe, now that you're going to be on the show, you have to be open to red hair," he says. Another request from Caruso -- be shorter! He doesn't want to look "like a fool" standing next to him.

Emily Procter is excited, too! She tells "Extra" she hopes Bryant will join the medical team so he can "play doctor with her" on the show. As for Adam Rodriguez, he wants Bryant to unleash his "inner geek" and would love to see him in a lab coat.

Kobe told "Extra" earlier this week, "I can't act for anything, so I can just be walking around in the background... that's probably my favorite show."
