Actor Ted Danson will square off with real life daughter Kate Danson on an upcoming episode of “CSI.” Kate is set to guest star on the April 3 showing of the hit crime drama.
In the episode, the CSI squad finds a body and what might be a serial killer's hideout. "I play a lawyer who knows she's in the right, and the CSI team have done something wrong," Kate told WENN. "So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play."
She added, "I was really fortunate to get to work with [my dad] on 'CSI.' It was so much fun. We never worked together like that. We did a short film together, but nothing professional until now, so it was really great going head-to-head with him."
The father/daughter team could be back onscreen together again. Kate told WENN the role could be recurring.
Kate's mother is Danson's second wife, Cassandra Coates. Danson is married to actress Mary Steenburgen.
