I noticed the 2 female actresses didn't do the voice overs.

Was that a timing thing or a budgetery thing?

And did you look around for soundalikes?

CBS and Ubisoft handle the casting of the show's stars, and are responsible for casting alternatives when one of them is unavaialble, for whatever reason. We were very happy to get all of the men. We'd love to work with everyone if we get to do it again...

It was a real pleasure getting to meet the stars and be a part of the recording sessions.

Interesting note - the Catherine soundalike is the "official soundalike" for Catherine on the show...

Why do they need a soundalike on the actual show? She's already there...
Crazy diva actors, too lazy to do their own speech, they have to hire someone else to do it for them!

actually they dub TV shows quite regularly, especially when a show is filmed outside the studio and the audio records might not be clear.

Did you guys know that all 3 shows are shot in LA? It was very strange touring the CSI:NY set when we were down there doing voice recordings...

Well, yeah, I did know that, actually. But I was just wondering why she (or others) can't do her own voicework for where the TV show is concerned. I understand that there are reasons why it would be necessary to use someone else for a voiceover in a game, but why would they use two different actors on the same TV show to do the same character?

There are a few shots they may do on location if it's absolutely necessary - but the vast majority is in LA.

There are a few reasons.

1) Actors are busy. Often they film multiple episodes at once, so they allow actors to spend more time on the important scenes - rather than do minor cleanup work. Most of the actors for reverse shots are stand-ins also. (Why take William Petersen's time if you're just going to be filming the back of his head - get another guy with white hair...)
2) actors don't all live in LA. so it may be too expensive to fly them out for something relatively minor.

Ultimately, the star's time is very valuable so they want to maximize their time on what's most important.
