Considering CSI: Miami star David Caruso's reported inability
to drive, sit, or open a door while on-camera, you'd think a scene
that calls for him to show up at a park, participate in a lighthearted
pick-up basketball game with a heavyset teenager and assorted
colleagues, and resolutely declare "This one's for Jesse" before sinking
a 12-ft jump shot would be problematic. Miraculously, Caruso pulled all
of this off in the final 30 seconds of this week's episode. What's
more, he did it in a suit and loafers. (He removed his sunglasses for
dramatic effect before his big shot, although sadly not in a dramatic way.)
not completely sure Caruso is the one who hit the basket (look how it
cuts to a wide shot just as the ball is being released), but it doesn't
matter now: the Clippers have already signed him to a 5-year contract.
