Consider the case of House‘s disappearing P.I. officially solved: Michael Weston, who enjoyed a high profile run as Hugh Laurie’s spykick this fall only to vanish without a trace, has turned up on CBS, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The former Six Feet Under kidnapper has been cast as a charismatic con man in an upcoming episode of CSI. Juggling multiple aliases, including a real estate mogul, a movie producer, an art dealer, and his brother, Weston’s character has spent much of his adult life scamming those around him. But it’s his newest identity — psycho killer — that gets the attention of the CSIers.

Weston’s episode begins production today and is slated to air this March.
