Vegetarian actress Jorja Fox to rejoin CSI cast as a regular

Sure William Petersen (Gil Grissom) may be gone—a shame really— and Laurence Fishburne (Ray Langston) was only part of the cast for a short period of time but take heart CSI fans, Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle) is returning as a regular on the hit CBS drama.

The 43-year-old actress has been guest starring as forensic scientist Sara Sidle since the end of season 7. Prior to that Fox was one of the mainstays of the show that held down T.V.’s number one slot for years.

Of course those who follow animal rights and veg news know that Fox has been a vegetarian since the age of 19. She has appeared in a campaign for PETA promoting vegetarianism and is active with Animal Defenders International (ADI) in the organization’s efforts to end circus cruelty.

Fox will be joining new cast member and veteran environmentalist Ted Danson this fall for CSI’s 12th season.
