Gene Simmons will guest-star in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation , set to air this week. The KISS frontman will play -- guess what? -- a rock star on the crime drama, accused of murder. In the hammy trailer for the show, Simmons is questioned by detectives for slaying a groupie and growls, "If you think I'm a killer, you can KISS my..."

This won't be the first time Simmons has played himself on a TV show.  He starred in the long-running A&E reality series  Gene Simmons Family Jewels , and also made guest appearances in episodes of  Ugly Betty  and  Castle .  In addition, his voice has been featured in several episodes of  Family Guy .

KISS fans may do well to hope that this doesn't mark Simmons' desire to return to anc acting career.  His KISS bandmate Paul Stanley recently griped to Guitar World that Gene's wanting to pursue acting in the '80s amounted to "questionable activities" that left Paul feeling "lonely and stress[ed.]"

Gene's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode airs Wednesday, March 12.
