Unpleasant experiences

When we bring up CSI: Miami, Pellegrino obliquely mentions having a little friction with one of its stars — three guesses who it could be — and we eventually get him to talk about when series star/EP David Caruso acted very oddly during an interrogation scene. “He directed me a bit, which is kind of a faux pas, even though he’s the main guy in the show,” he says. Apparently bored by his lack of lines in the scene, Pellegrino recalls, Caruso filled the time that the camera was on the guest star “with an intensity that was not there in the scene when the camera was on him.” It made for an “unpleasant” day. “I’m sure there are good things about him, but it made my experience like, ‘I don’t know that I want to work with you again.’”
