Negahban will figure into the second part of the CSI-CSI: NY crossover event as Zane Kalim, a lifelong criminal. He will most certainly come into the crosshairs of Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise), as Kalim is the only person who knows where Mac's kidnapped girlfriend Christine (Megan Dodds) is being held. Of course, Kalim refuses to cooperate with the police, which pushes Mac to flirt with dangerous extremes regarding protocol.
The action begins on Wednesday, Feb. 6 (10/9c, CBS), when Mac arrives in Vegas to surprise Christine, only to learn she's missing. D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) will then return with Mac to New York for the second half of the investigation on Friday, Feb. 8 (9/8c).
