Paul Guilfoyle has made quite the achievement of making it through all 14 seasons of CSI as Captain Jim Brass, since the beginning of the show 12 years ago. He is the only actor to have done so aside from George Eads AKA Nick Stokes. However, the producers have decided to finish his time on the show within the current season in May.
According to sources, the actor only found out about the decision recently. The executive producers released the statement “Paul made Capt Brass a standout character. 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”.
