Exclusive: 'CSI: NY' collars an American Idol

Music careers are so 2008. Following in the footsteps of Chris Daughtry, American Idol alum Katharine McPhee has booked a guest gig on CSI: NY.

In an episode tentatively scheduled to air in April, the singer will play… er, a singer. There will even be a scene in which she is… well… singing. All kidding aside, the prime-time appearance is actually bringing McPhee back once again to her roots – she was an actress first, then a recording artist. (Recently, you’ve probably seen her opposite Anna Farris in The House Bunny.)

McPhee will next begin work on the romantic comedy Wedlock opposite Brothers & Sisters’ Dave Annable.

So what’s your take, people? Coming down with McPheever or so over the celeb cameo thing? Your take below.
