CSI star doesn't want to die
If you don't want the CSI season finale spoiled, stop reading now. There's no way to report this story without spoiling, so consider this your warning.
*SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP*
Okay, here's the deal: Jorja Fox's character (Sarah Sidle) is supposedly going to be killed off during the season finale of CSI later this month. As Sidle is not a particularly well-liked character, I don't think too many viewers will be upset. Of course, it'll be great fodder for Gil Grissom's character, who has been in a romantic relationship with Sidle since last season.
Here's the problem. According to the New York Post, Jorja Fox isn't happy about her character getting killed. So she has refused to show up to film her death scene. She is in a contract dispute with the network over salary (surprise, surprise), and the network's solution is to cut her loose. Fox's refusal to shoot her death scene, where she's crushed by a car, has resulted in last-minute rewrites of the finale and re-shoots to accomodate them. That's costing CBS a whole pile of money and you can bet the network is pretty pissed off at Jorja right now. According to Jorja's rep, her future on CSI is still "up in the air".
