LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers star Pau Gasol (pow
ga-'SOL) is getting a chance to show off his acting moves on "CSI: Miami."
CBS says Gasol will appear in the Nov. 16 episode of the crime drama, playing a person of interest in the investigation of a terrible car accident.
"CSI: Miami" stars David Caruso and Emily Procter.
Gasol sat out the Lakers' final six preseason games because of a
strained right hamstring, and was considered unlikely to play in Tuesday night's season opener.
The Spanish-born athlete has other screen credits, including an appearance on the CBS drama "Numb3rs" with teammate Jordan Farmar.
