Veteran actor William Petersen, whose character, Gil Grissom, was the backbone of the CSI tv series, is quitting the popular show. And, as at least one article explained, this is not the “I’m-off-10-weeks-to-do-a-play” gone that Petersen has pulled in the past. Petersen will leave the show after this season’s 10th episode.

Petersen’s departure seems to be a combination of boredom on his part (he’s been playing Gil Grissom for eight years) and cheapness on the part of CBS (unwilling to pay their franchise player franchise money.)
