Casting Sinise as a weaselly villain in a thriller is like telling the class math whiz to take a break from the chalkboard and go play in the sandbox for a while.
Sinise's odd combo of strangely alluring good looks (admit it, he's handsome) and a strangely malevolent mien (admit it, he's rodent-like) don't exactly plug themselves easily in to the standard array of Hollywood parts.
And Sinise is almost fifty now, so we don't begrudge him the regular paycheck and predictable hours that come with signing on to C.S.I.: NY, though we realize it pretty much signals the end of the interesting part of his career.

 SPLICEDwire | "Impostor" review (2002) Gary Fleder, Gary Sinise, Madeleine Stowe
Sinise runs from government in 'Impostor,' an eerie sci-fi thriller in the tradition of 'Blade Runner'
The story he tells has less credence than the ominous and utterly enveloping future world in which it takes place -- but he tells it with such atmospheric ballast that shrugging off the plot's persnickety problems is simply a matter of going into the movie in a shrugging mood.
The point man on the project has been Spencer Olham (Gary Sinise), who gave up childhood dreams of space exploration when his fighter-pilot father was tortured to death in a Centauri prison camp.
