Laurence Fishburne: Leaving CSI!

by at . Comments

We have a genuine CSI stunner: Laurence Fishburne is leaving the CBS drama.

An insider confirms to Deadline Hollywood that the actor's contract was up and he simply chose not to renew it. Look for Fishburne to return to movies in the near future.

Ratings for CSI have dropped since Fishburne took over for William Peterson two-and-a-half years ago. The show will even be moved to Wednesday nights in the fall.

Will you miss Fishburne as Dr. Raymond Langston?

So now the question is... who fills the void? Do we get a new CSI agent or do they fill in with others stepping up? If I got to pick, I would bring Liz Vassey back as the rookie and have Stokes step up into the Senior role.
