Laurence Fishburne to end 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' career

June 8, 2011 - 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.
