Just a quick post to say you can catch me on CSI:NY tonight at 10pm on CBS. The episode,"Admissions", has the team investigating the murder of a guidance counsellor during the school prom.

Keen eyed Gary Sinise and Eddie Cahill discover a number of suspects, including a dodgy character you wouldn't want looking after your retirement fund. That fellow could be me. Or not. You'll have to tune in to find out...

It just occurred to me that you need to be quite fit to be a detective. Fitter than most cops I imagine. Why? Well look at how they're crouching - that's a deep squat, people. As an occasional body builder, I can tell you that you're gonna feel that in your quads. I would. Clearly Gary and Melina have been doing this for some time, otherwise they'd be grimacing. As I do. Whether I'm squatting or not.

CSI folks need stamina. We're talking strong thighs, lower back and above average vision to actually spot the tiny clues before you bend and squat. Unless you have an assistant. In which case you can tell your assistant to pick up the miniscule carpet fibers the murderer left behind. Yes, that sounds like a plan.

WANTED: Personal assistant to squat on command. Duties include scraping suspicious residues from unsavory surfaces, following up leads, working closely with cadavers and running DNA tests.

Hmmm. Doesn't sound like much fun at all. I think I'll stick to playing the detective or, in this case, the creep. Hey, if I get tired, I can always play the cadaver...


  1. Hey Gideon! I replied a while back when you were on GH (again well done being that it's hard being a temporary recast). But I'm watching CSI right now and what do I see .. you! I recognized you immediately and at first I yelled, Gideon, then Jax .. lol. I'm still watching but your scene with Gary Sinise was great. Did he shove you hard into that wall? I'll post again when the show's over.

    Best wishes,

  2. Ok, finished a while ago. Too bad you weren't on the show longer, but what you did do was great. I look forward to your next show.

  3. LOL.. men are such namby-pambies.. if you think squats are hard, try them in high heels! ;) Haha
    All congrats to Ms. Kanakaredes who can limbo in spikes!
    Just a note..if your going to play the cadaver, make sure your contract has a contigency plan for putting all your parts back together. CSI can be rough on cadavers! The last episode went through 5 actors before they got it right!! 'wink' LOL

  4. My goodness, Gideon, you were amazing! Too bad it was such a small role. I hope we get to see more of you on TV soon.

  5. Ohhhh... I give up! I try on an infrequent basis to see if anything is new and when I do, it's too late! Do me a favor and just send me an email or leave me a message on my voicemail. :)

    By the way, great penguin story. Love the sense of humor! Now I need to only find you on Ninja Warrior, the train movie, and keep on searching youtube.
