Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim Cast in 'CSI: NY' with Vanessa Minnillo
Definitely adding a bit of spice to her life and veering away from her reality TV roots, Kim Kardashian has landed yet another acting gig.  The star of E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians will reportedly be appearing on an upcoming episode of the series CSI: NY.  And, of course, this spells murder.  Onscreen anyway.

She'll be guest-starring alongside actress Vanessa Minnillo, but this won't be the first time the two have worked together.  They both had roles in the 2008 flick Disaster Movie.  Joining the ladies on the series episode are LaLa Vasquez and the band Train, which makes for quite a star-studded installment of the show.

Executive Producer Pam Veasey told People how excited they are to be having Kim and Vanessa on board, and dished a few details about their roles.  If there's one thing that's going to pull in the ratings, it's devilish females.  And CSI: NY is bound to deliver that on the special episode, which will air on December 16 on CBS.

"The ladies play two women who've managed to concoct a very interesting scheme that ends in murder," Veasey announced.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was also thrilled at another part in the small screen.  Other than her reality series, she has already acted on the FOX sitcom Brothers.  This won't be a new experience for her, but she's surely looking forward to it.

"I am so excited to be working with Vanessa again," Kim Kardashian exclaimed.  "I am fascinated by crime scene investigating.  I swear, I wish I was a crime scene investigator sometimes!"

She added, "I'm having such a good time expanding my roles.  I truly love branching out into different characters."

Maybe she'll try an action film next.  The reality TV celebrity recently participated in a boxing match for charity, in which contenders get to punch a Kardashian.  She blogged about the event, and added photos of her and her black eye.  Well, it's really a badge of honor she wears proudly since it was all for a good cause.
