Other characters include: Rosewood's party-girl sister, Pippy (Gabrielle Dennis); his pushy mom, Donna (Lorraine Toussaint); the insightful DNA specialist nicknamed TMI (Anna Konkle); and the thrice-divorced Captain Ian Hornstock (Domenick Lombardozzi).

But despite the procedural aspect of the show, funny moments keep the set lively—like snoring cadavers (aka. actors who fall asleep while playing dead!). Watch the video above to learn more about the Rosewood cast, and what separates Chestnut from his character.
