Laurence Fishburne Leaves 'CSI', Producers Not Surprised


The Raymond Langston depicter, who was brought to the show in season 9, opts not to renew his contract and plans returning to film full-time.

Laurence Fishburne is resigning from "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" after two-and-a-half seasons. The "Predators" actor has decided not to renew his contract which expired this season and is reportedly looking forward to returning to film full-time.

Although the Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor was a main cast, CBS and the show's producers were allegedly not surprised by his decision to leave. "Nobody expected him to be on the show for 7 years, it's Laurence Fishburne," an insider told Deadline.

Fishburne joined the successful crime drama series in the ninth season. He was cast as Dr. Raymond Langston after original star William Petersen quit in December 2008. The show itself has been renewed for a twelfth season and will return this fall.

On another news, "Harry's Law" is also losing its regulars. Brittany Snow and Aml Ameen will not return to the NBC legal dramedy when it returns for a second season.
