'CSI: NY' will put 'American Idol' finalist Katharine McPhee as a singer in their April episode.
One more "American Idol" alum joins "CSI: NY" for a guest starring role. In an exclusive report, EW dished out that fifth season runner-up Katharine McPhee is to appear in an episode of the crime drama, doing what she does best, singing.
The episode where she will be a singer, is scheduled to be aired in April. No other details included. This would be the second experience for McPhee in appearing in a prime-time series. In 2007 she made a cameo as herself in an episode of "Ugly Betty".
The "CSI: NY" stint report comes right after her other casting news, which is in a feature movie called "Wedlocked". She will star opposite "Brothers & Sisters" Dave Annable.
Previously, another "Idol" finalist Chris Daughtry landed a role in "CSI: NY" in a November 2008 episode as one of the people whose name is in rhyme with Mac Taylor's.
