Jorja’s on our minds, but off “CSI”


As you’ve probably heard by now, Jorja Fox is leaving CSI after the seventh episode this season — or just sometime in November, depending on which report you read.

Sigh. Now I have even fewer reasons to watch the show. Fewer as in one (the one named Marg Helgenberger).

In an interview with, Jorja said it’s been a good run:

Were you ever bored by the constraints of acting in a procedural?

Fox: I never was. I’ve been one of the luckiest people in the history of TV, getting to play the character of Sara. Almost since Episode 10 in Season 1, I’ve had a lot to do. My character has had a very full personal life.

Well, sorta full. Not quite as full as we wanted it to be. Jorja also noted that “the story of Sara and Grissom is a little like a fable.” I agree, if she means a completely fantastical story that would never, ever happen in real life.

If Jorja’s departure is terrible news to you, there’s a “Keep Jorja Fox on CSI” campaign (thanks, DJSmurf!) you can join. Hey, if letters kept Cagney & Lacey on the air, maybe they can keep Sara from sidling away.

Here’s a little Sara/Catherine fan video to soothe the pain (or feed the fanfic):
