Two-time Oscar nominee Leslie Caron will join the cast of CBS-TV's "Falcon Crest" next season, playing a mysterious and beautiful French philanthropist, the show's producers announced. The role marks only the second time Caron, who received Oscar nominations for "Lili" and "The L-Shaped Room," has performed on American network television. She had a feature role in the television miniseries "QB VII." On "Falcon Crest," Caron will portray a woman from the past of Chase Gioberti, played by Robert Foxworth, who stirs up trouble for his wife, Maggie, played by Susan Sullivan.
