Once again, a murder with Boston and Las Vegas connections will bring together the casts of NBC's 'Crossing Jordan' and 'Las Vegas'. NBC has announced that the popular Sunday and Monday dramas will reprise their successful crossover collaboration this October.

Jill Hennessy and Jerry O'Connell from 'Crossing Jordan' and Josh Duhamel and Vanessa Marcil from 'Las Vegas' will appear in both episodes.

According to Zap2It.com, the crime begins when a Las Vegas showgirl appears in the morgue in Boston. The only clue is an employee ID from the Montecito Casino, leading Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh to call Danny McCoy for an assist. Danny comes to Boston to help Jordan as Detective Woody Hoyt goes to Las Vegas to work with Sam Marquez.

So there is some slight variation in where the characters go, but not in which characters are used. Personally, I'd have used at least one of the other women from the show to interact with Woody, particularly Big Ed's daughter. It might have led to a fun interaction between O'Connell and James Caan as a very protective father.

But I'd also have liked to have seen Garrett Macy in Las Vegas, and the chance to see Miguel Ferrer get a piece of the crossover pie with a few scenes with new cast member Lara Flynn Boyle.
