David Cassidy

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

had a 70s Amer­i­can TV se­ries to thank for launch­ing him on the road to global fame. The Par­tridge Fam­ily, in which he played hand­some Keith Par­tridge (right), pro­vided a show­case for his mu­si­cal tal­ents and a gate­way to sell-out tours. Act­ing roles and suc­cess­ful TV projects have been thin­ner on the ground for the one-time heart-throb in re­cent years. His 2009 US com­edy Ruby & The Rock­its failed to make it past se­ries one and we haven’t seen him act­ing on this side of the At­lantic since an episode of Mal­colm In The Mid­dle on Sky1 in 2005. David, now 63, re­turns as poker pro­fes­sional Peter Coe (above), a man who comes to a truly sticky end, in Amer­i­can crime drama CSI this week.
