CSI: NY Preview: Greek Grads Spencer Grammer, Aaron Hill Talk 'Surprise' On-Screen Reunion

Flash Pop

After a nearly two-month hiatus, CSI: NY returns Friday (9/8c, CBS) with an episode that reunites former Greek stars — and current crime scene lab techs — Spencer Grammer and Aaron Hill.

Here, the two preview their episode for TVLine — and weigh in on whether or not a Greek (made-for-TV) movie is in the cards.

ON WHAT “FLASH POP” HAS IN STORE | Friday’s episode finds “the team trying to figure out who mimicked a 1950s cold case, and they end up having to investigate one of their own,” Hill explains. “My character was obsessed with this case — he even did his thesis on it. So, that’s how he’s involved when they’re looking into this present-day murder.”

ON FINDING OUT A GREEK CO-STAR WAS ALSO GUEST-STARRING | “I got the call sheet [for the episode] and once I saw Aaron’s name, I immediately texted him!” Grammer recalls, excitedly. “It was a really nice surprise because I got to catch up with him.” Hill echoes his former co-star’s sentiments, calling it a “great coincidence” that they were paired up again. But while a good portion of the episode finds the two apart, Spencer promises, “We are in at least one scene together, when we’re out at a bar with other lab techs.”

ON HOW THESE CHARACTERS COMPARE TO CYRUS-RHODES’ ELITE | When asked where his CSI: NY guy falls on a scale of 0 to Beaver, Hill teases, “I would say my lab tech, physically, is probably about a 10 compared to Beaver. Look, this guy is very smart, but he doesn’t have the best demeanor either. So, I’d say they are not very similar at all.” CSI: NY Preview: Greek Grads Spencer Grammer, Aaron Hill Talk 'Surprise' On-Screen ReunionAdds Grammer, simply yet effectively, “My character is definitely not Casey Cartwright.”

ON WHETHER A GREEK REUNION IS A POSSIBILITY | “Hopefully in due time the fans can pressure ABC Family into doing some sort of reunion with the Greek cast,” Hill says with a laugh. “And if it’s something that they did decide to do, I would welcome being a part of it.” Count Grammer in too. “Of course I would do that!” she tells us. “It was such an amazing experience for me. I learned so much doing Greek and I owe that to the fans, the people who have followed me for so long… It would be fun.”
