Laurence Fishburne has carved out a film and TV career

Laurence Fishburne is closing the file on his CSI: Crime Scene Investigation career.

The actor will not be back in the next series of the CBS crime drama, according to a source, who spoke anonymously because CBS has yet to announce the star's departure.

Laurence joined the CSI cast as Dr Raymond Langston midway through the 2008-09 season. He stepped in to replace departing star William Petersen.

The source said CBS and the show's producers are taking his departure in their stride, aware that his film career made a long TV tenure unlikely.

CSI is set to return for its 12th season and continues to rank among the 20 top-rated shows in the US.

Laurence's credits include The Matrix films, and he is also in the forthcoming Contagion with Matt Damon.
