CSI is doing a mob-themed episode, thanks to the opening of an actual mafia museum in Las Vegas.

For an episode this fall, the show has cast Frances Fisher (Titanic, The Shield) in a guest star role, playing the wife of a notorious hit man. The episode will take place at The Mob Museum, one of two new mafia-themed museums opening in the city. (The first, The Las Vegas Mob Experience, is already open at the Tropicana; The Mob Museum opens in February.)

Also, former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman will have a cameo in the episode. CSI returns on Sept. 21 and, of course, has a new star on board with Ted Danson joining the team.
