Laurence Fishburne leaving “C.S.I.”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This is one missing person’s case that will be easy to solve.
Laurence Fishburne has revealed that he’s leaving CBS’ “C.S.I.” after nearly three seasons. Sources tell THR that Fishburne “opted not to renew his deal to continue on the series.” He was brought in to replace longtime leading man William Petersen in 2008.
It’s possible the bloom is off the rose when it comes to CBS’ once-dominant police procedural. “C.S.I.” posted its lowest-rated season finale ever last month, and recently learned that it would be moving from its cushy Thursday night time slot to Wednesdays at 10 p.m. to make room for J.J. Abrams’ “Person of Interest.”
But cast changes are great ways to shake up stale show. Who do you think should replace Fishburne? And will a change of detectives bring “C.S.I.” back to its dominating ways? Let us know what you think below.
