CSI adds celebrity chef and One Tree Hill vet for upcoming episodes.

Anna Camp (True Blood, Pitch Perfect) has booked roles on two comedies this fall - CBS' How I Met Your Mother and TBS' Ground Floor. On the final season of the CBS sitcom, she will replace The Office's Ellie Kemper who was originally cast in the role but had to bow out due to scheduling problems. The role is of Cassie, one of the most attractive, available and - as Ted (Josh Radnor) discovers - unfortunate guests at the wedding. On the new TBS comedy series, she will reunite with her Pitch Perfect co-stars Skylar Astin and Alexis Knapp as Brody's (Astin) ex-girlfriend, a hard-nosed investment banking shark and the only woman working on the top floor.

UFC star Chuck Liddell will guest star on an upcoming episode of FOX's Bones. He will play a tough mixed martial artist who interacts with Booth (David Boreanaz) during an investigation.

Chef Wolfgang Puck will play himself on an upcoming episode of CBS' CSI. He will appear in a story revolving around a food-competition series gone wrong.

One Tree Tree vet Bethany Joy Lenz will appear on CSI's upcoming 300th episode. She will play a sexy, seemingly normal-looking mother of two.

Singer Josh Groban (The Office, Glee) will guest star on the sixth episode of CBS' new comedy series The Crazy Ones. He will play a nerdy guy with a crush on Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) so intense that he writes, produces and performs a creepy song about her.
