Christina Ricci doing CSI!

Sounds too good to be true, right?

That’s because it is. Despite a breathless internet report that says The Addams Family star will appear in the penultimate episode, it turns out the CBS crime drama never approached Ricci about playing a young woman who helps the Las Vegas team with the Nate Haskell investigation.

But the role does exist — and it will be played by Elisabeth Harnois (Miami Medical, Dirt). She’ll debut in the May 5 episode dubbed “Cello and Goodbye” and will play the estranged daughter of Conrad Ecklie (Marc Vann). Her character works for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Harnois is expected to return in the fall for more episodes. But sadly, not with Ricci.
