Fishburne Leaving CSI:

Laurence Fishburne is leaving the popular CBS crime drama CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, sources are reporting.

Fishburne stepped into the starring role two and a half seasons ago to replace William Petersen, who wanted time away from the grind.

Insiders with the show reportedly aren’t surprised by Fishburne’s decision, suggesting that they all knew he wasn’t going to be a part of the show long-term.  The Oscar-nominated actor says he wants to return to motion pictures.

Meanwhile, Marg Helgenburger will return for the show’s 12th season, but only in reduced capacity, choosing to appear in a limited number of episodes.
