Another CSI Star Out
Saturday April 19, 2008

It's hard to imagine that starring on one of television's highest rated shows would make an actor want to leave, but it's happening on two CSI series at the end of this season.

As reported earlier this week, CSI star Gary Dourdan is leaving when his contract expires next month. Michael Ausiello at TV Guide now reports that CSI: Miami star Khandi Alexander is also planning to exit the hit show when her contract expires at the end of this season.

Although Ausiello wouldn't divulge the reason the actress is leaving the show, I can't help but wonder if it has to do with one of her notoriously difficult co-stars. Alexander has portrayed medical examiner Alexx Woods since the series began in 2002. Ausiello also stated that the producers are planning to find a male M.E. for the role.

Isn't Isaiah Washington still looking for work? He would be perfect for either Dourdan or Alexander's role!
