Since its debut in 2000, “CSI” has seen its share of shocking exits, from Grissom’s retirement to Warrick’s death.
Now it seems that it’s time to say goodbye to another original star, Paul Guilfoyle, who has starred as Captain Jim Brass since the very beginning.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Guilfoyle will depart the show after the season 14 finale.
“Paul made Capt. Brass a standout character,” the show’s producers told “THR.” “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.”
Notably, the actor is one of only two remaining originals to stick with the show as a series regular throughout its run, the other being George Eads.
The season 14 finale of “CSI” is set to air on Wednesday, May 7 at 10pm. Are you said to see Brass go? Weigh in below!
