Apparently there is a real shortage of actors who can swing a golf club convincingly, as Thursday night's "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will feature three pro golfers portraying themselves. The episode is entitled "Long Ball" and involves the discovery of the dead body of a legendary golfer. (Insert your own inappropriate Tiger Woods joke here.)

No, Tiger Woods is not on the show. But these golfers are: Natalie Gulbis, Rocco Mediate and Duffy Waldorf. And that raised the question here at Page 2 about what other sports figures would be naturals as guest stars on TV programs.

• Kobe Bryant -- "24"
