Mandy Patinkin Guest Stars On CBS' `Three Rivers'

Mandy Patinkin is returning to CBS _ and he's bringing a personal story line with him.

The network says the former "Criminal Minds" star will make a guest appearance on the medical drama "Three Rivers." He'll play an aspiring organ donor.

Patinkin received corneal implants, donated by the families of a 13-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy, to correct a disease that distorts the shape of the cornea and severely impairs vision.

The 56-year-old actor asked to be released from his role as FBI profiler Jason Gideon on CBS' "Criminal Minds" in 2007, citing creative differences.

"Three Rivers," which airs on Sundays, explores the lives of organ donors, recipients and surgeons.
