    Thanks for collecting the record of the popular actors and actresses, who took part in cameos of a legendary criminal TV show CSI. Jutin Bieber looks funny in the picture that was chosen for the article. He is simply hilarious. Dita Von Teese is the embodiment of woman’s beauty, sexiness and feminine fragile side.
