Billy Petersen Opens Up About 'CSI' And 'Blue'

William Petersen remains one of the more sought-after actors to headline a TV show but the former star of CSI isn't ready to come back to broadcast TV ... yet. Instead, he's set to appear Friday opposite Julia Stiles in Blue, a web series in its second season from Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment) about a single mom who's trying to protect her son from the consequences of her secret career as an upscale escort. Petersen, who splits his time between Los Angeles and Chicago, plays Blue's (Stiles) father, who has been in jail for the majority of her life and is serving a life sentence.
