Jessica Lucas has just signed on to become a reoccurring character on CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will play a CSI in training.

Lucas' character is named Veronica Lake, but people call her Ronnie. She is a young, vivacious, smart newbie who gets multiple job offers. She chooses Las Vegas because of the increase in crime rates there.
