Surely not a case of art imitating life, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz made their network TV debut together Wednesday night, playing a young couple involved in the drug world.
The real-life married couple appeared in an episode of CSI:NY. While their plotline was a bit of a downer, their appearance was a hit, garnering a good amount of people tuning in. The show topped out at 8.3 million viewers.
Simpson will soon make her way back to the small screen. She’s recently been cast in the remake of Melrose Place. Wentz is sticking to music though as his band Fall Out Boy prepares for their tour which will start in April with rapper 50 Cent.
