The Loved One -- Rod Steiger as Mr Joyboy feeding his mama a suckling pig is priceless...
and I can't believe Martel missed this episode of CSI:
'CSI''s 300-Pound Man: Eating Himself to Death Or Murder?
There's some serious dumpster diving going on during the "Dog Eat Dog" episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," and the team is called out to determine if it was murder or an accident.
The dead man -- Jerry Gable -- is played by BILL CHOTT, who is very excited about his breakout drama role.
"I have done a lot of comedy work," Bill tells ET in an exclusive interview. "I was on the DANA CARVEY show before, but this is my big dramatic break."
In order to solve the mystery of Jerry's death, Grissom (WILLIAM PETERSEN) and the CSIs follow the evidence into the world of competitive eating.
"This is the kind of role I can sink my teeth into," Bill says with a laugh. "I have been dealing with weight issues my whole life, as you can tell, and in addition to this role, where I portray someone with Prader-Willi Syndrome (A syndrome which occurs when the part of the brain that registers hunger or satiation doesn't work correctly, so the individual constantly craves food), I also did voice over work for an animated version of "Dante's Inferno," so I am really dealing with gluttony issues this holiday season."
Bill says he knew when he was cast for the role that a hot dog eating contest was involved, but what he didn't know was he would be devouring an all-you-can-eat buffet out of a dumpster.
"Eating out of a dumpster isn't anything I have done before, but I am willing to take a hit for 'CSI'," he says.
So what is the secret to swallowing pounds of hot dogs for the contest?
"The big secret is the water," he shares. "You dunk it in the water. It makes it a lot easier and helps the dog slide down."
