From Coming Soon!:
Two stars of the CBS hit television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation were fired for breach of contract. Actors Jorja Fox and George Eads, who play investigators Sara Sidle and Nick Stokes, were fired after asking for more money to stay on the show, according to reports.
A recommendation from a friend a few years ago sucked me into the CSI world, with my preference being CSI:Miami, but this is still a bit of a shock.
I guess I fall into the group of people that can’t quite figure out why someone would push for more money on a show. I mean, I understand the network makes money off of the show you are a part of, but without the show, odds are pretty good you’ll have a tough time matching what you lost. I know some aren’t in it for the loot, or aren’t making a ton of cash off of their acting, but they are doing a heckuva lot better than the majority of people just dying to have a small break, let alone a huge one.
