For all curious fans who have e-mailed me, I have confirmed that it is NOT Elias in the new Verizon Rhapsody commercial (the one where the parents are dressed strangely at the end).  The unknown actor bears a striking resemblance, but it is not him.  And no, it's not Christopher Meloni either.....

September 24, 2008:
The season premiere of CSI N.Y. is going to be September 24, 2008.  The episode is supposed to pick up where the season finale ended last season. Last season, Elias played a bank robber / murderer who may or may not be who he says he is.  Is he really the bank robber or just a pawn for the real robbers?  Season 5 will kick off with Mac (Gary Sinise) still held hostage, and the team trying to figure out how to help him.  In the aftermath of a bank heist gone bad, Mac wakes up in a submerged car with no memory of how he got there.  Pictures on the pix page.

Update about "Collateral Damage" (and it doesn't sound good).

The Arnold Page is reporting that this movie, at first scheduled to be released on August, 2001, won't actually be released until the summer of 2002.

Well that may be bad for Arnold fans, but it's even worse for us Elias fans, because we hardly see much of Elias in new movies to begin with! Now instead of waiting seven months, we have to wait more than a year!
