'CSI: Miami' drafts Pau Gasol for guest spot

Will play a person of interest in the Nov. 16 episode

Los Angeles Lakers star Pau Gasol 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 "Numb3ers" with teammate Jordan Farmar.
