Things don’t always go smoothly on set even after years of being on a series. That’s exactly what happened to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation star George Eads.
The actor, who has been on the series since its debut in 2000, will be taking a leave of absence from the long-running series. He will appear in the first three episodes of the season and then will return at a later time that has yet to be determined.
