Captain Brass is out at the end of season 14
Back when CSI was first on the air, I really liked the show. After some of the early stars of the show started to leave, I lost interest and haven't watched it in years. CSI has now been on the air for 14 seasons and at the end of this season, it will lose another star reports Entertainment Weekly.
Actor Paul Guilfoyle will leave the show at the end of the current season and his character is being written out for season 15. The actor has played police officer Captain Jim Brass since CSI first hit the air back in 2000. It's hard to believe the show has been on that long.
“Paul made Capt. Brass a standout character,” CSI exec producers Carol Mendelsohn and Don McGill said in a statement. “He is not just an original cast member, he is an original. In a show about forensics, fans always looked forward to the handcuffs coming out, and Capt. Brass putting his spin on the crime of the week, just as Paul Guilfoyle put his indelible stamp on the character and the show. He will be missed.”
It's unclear exactly why he is leaving the show. If he is looking for greener pastures, he should remember that the other three original cast members haven't gone on to great success after leaving. Original stars Marg Helgenberger left in 2012, William Peterson left in 2009, and Gary Dourdan left in 2008. The actor that plays Nick Stokes will be the only original left.
