Former Heroes star Jack Coleman is heading to CSI, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Coleman will play Jim, a kind, empathetic pastor who is devastated by the death of his 16-year-old daughter, whose body was found in the desert. Although he's committed himself to charitable work, he's neglected the needs of his family, and, when questioned by the CSIs, seems to have a lack of connection when talking about his loss. Could the CSIs suspect him?
