CSI's William Petersen has done what so many TV and movie stars are doing to work their acting chops: they're going to the theater.

Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated Peterson has joined Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, debuting in Dublin Carol.

Peterson plays a drunk who works for a Dublin undertaker. On Christmas Eve his estranged daughter arrives with news that gives John "a chance to escape the burdens of his past."

Peterson, an old theater pro, is co-founder of the Remains Theater Ensemble which includes other prominent Chicago-actors Gary Cole and Ted Levine.
