Jorja Fox to Leave CSI

Representatives of CBS and Fox won’t comment on whether the actor is leaving the show, citing the need to avoid spoiling upcoming episodes. “The fans. . . ‘heart’ Jorja Fox and so does everyone at CSI . . . although we’ve stopped short of sending her chocolate-dipped insects and cases of Lifesavers,” wrote CSI executive producer Carol Mendelsohn in an e-mail to the St. Petersburg Times. “Sara Sidle will always be a part of CSI.” But TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly magazines have reported that Fox is leaving at the end of her contract. Fox and castmate George Eads were fired briefly in 2004, amid tough contract negotiations. Even though the actors and CBS blamed it all on communication mixups, strained feelings remained. Fox has told TV Guide she turned down a raise that would have extended her contract through the entire season. TV Guide reported her last episode is now set to air Nov. 8. Source
