The 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' cast want Dolly Parton to guest star.
Elizabeth Harnois - who plays Morgan Brody in the long-running crime drama - has revealed the country star is a firm favourite behind the scenes and the cast are hoping to rope down-to-earth Dolly in for a cameo appearance.
Asked who her dream guest star would be, Elizabeth exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's somebody who I've worked with and who I've always admired immensely and who I think would fit very well into the Vegas storyline - Dolly Parton.
"I worked with her when I was about 15 years old for six months on a TV show that never aired, she became a very good friend and mentor.
"She's somebody who, for as successful as she is, she is one of the most humble, wonderful people I've ever met. Everybody on the show is a fan of hers, and I really want to make it happen!"
The 33-year-old actress has just finished filming the show's 13th season, and is hoping Dolly could join the likes of The Who's Roger Daltrey, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber in 'CSI's guest role hall of fame this autumn - and since she is so iconic, she wouldn't even need to play a fictional character.
Elizabeth added: "I think she should play herself having a big show in Vegas, playing out her long and glorious career and making millions of dollars.
"Dolly's definitely got enough of a following to open up those shows every night."
'CSI' is on Tuesday nights at 9pm on Channel 5.
