Firstly, thank you for all the messages and mentions on twitter over the past week, as well as all the emails much appreciated.   Still going through them, but wanted to update the main site beforehand.

The big news of the past week is that Billy won the Jeff Award for his performance in Blackbird this past summer.   The Award for Actor in a Principal Role was a tie as below:

ACTOR IN A PRINCIPAL ROLE – PLAY (Tie)
William L. Petersen – “Blackbird” – Victory Gardens Theater
Larry Neumann, Jr. – “A Moon for the Misbegotten” – First Folio Theatre

ACTOR IN A PRINCIPAL ROLE – PLAY (Tie)
William L. Petersen – “Blackbird” – Victory Gardens Theater

It does not appear that Billy was there to accept the Award personally.   For more information about the Jeff Awards and the winners, information can be found on the following links:

In other news, in a recent interview with Anthony Zuiker, he was asked the question if Billy is returning to CSI and his response was:

JAM!: With Jorja Fox back on ‘CSI’ indefinitely, one last question: Will Grissom return this season?

Zuiker: We’re trying to get Billy [William Petersen] back. It’s really up in the air right now. He’s sorely missed and I’d love to have him back. Nothing would please me more to get Billy back.
