Would you be willing to have an autopsy performed on you after you’re dead? “Sure. I’m an organ donor. If somebody can make use of what’s left after I’m gone, have at it.”

Why do most medical dramas seem to perform so well? “In terms of ‘CSI,’ our show and others with the forensic slant, given the state of modern science and crime-solving technology, it’s really just a newer way to tell a very old story – the police procedural. … I think people find that exciting.”

Would you like to see your character given more of a personal life in the show? “The first year, there was an awful lot of involvement with the characters and you learned a lot about their private lives. That’s always more fun, more interesting for actors. (Then, after ‘CSI’ took off, NBC wanted fewer personal touches. But) this last season, to a large extent they turned to the writers and the creator and said, ‘You guys do what you want to do.’ And it seems to have, for the most part, turned out pretty well.”
