London: Actor Laurence Fishburne will no longer be starring in CBS crime drama ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’, it has emerged.
Fishburne, 49, will not be back this autumn, revealed a source, who spoke anonymously because CBS has yet to announce his departure, the Mirror reported.
The actor had joined the CSI cast as Dr Raymond Langston midway through the 2008-09 season. He stepped in to replace departing star William Petersen.
The source said CBS and the show’s producers are taking Fishburne’s departure in their stride, aware that his film career made a long TV tenure unlikely.
