GENERAL HOSPITAL fans will get to see Chad Brannon (ex-Zander) again on an upcoming episode of CSI when he plays Ryan, a maintenance worker at a Vegas casino whose wife recently died of cancer leaving him with a baby and piles of medical bills. “Really just a foundationally challenging and emotional character to grasp and get a hold of,” he says. “So that was a ton of fun to play as an actor and get to develop that.”
Naturally, Brannon’s character finds himself at the center of the episode’s mystery. “There’s a huge robbery at the casino,” he teases, “and somehow I’m involved. The show just has a ton of twists and turns of figuring out how I’m involved, but it’s fun because I’m involved in almost every aspect. So it’s a great episode of CSI.”
Sadly, he didn’t get to go to Las Vegas to shoot any location footage for the show. “Most of it was shot at Universal Studios,” Brannon admits, “which is where they’ve been camped out for all of 14 seasons. And then we shot a little location stuff, at my character’s house. So yeah, we didn’t get the chance to go to Vegas, which would have been fun!”
Brannon’s episode, “Take The Money And Run” airs Wednesday, October 2 at 10:00 pm on CBS. Don’t miss it!
