“CSI” captivated audiences around the globe with its gripping and suspense-filled plot lines. “CSI” has mad it’s mark in pop culture, but what happened to the cast after the show ended? Some of these stars continued to appear in television shows and films while others, in true CSI fashion, seemed to have disappeared…
Liz Vassey – Wendy Simms
Liz Vassey made small appearances on quite a few television shows throughout the 90s and early 2000s before finding a stable platform for her career on “CSI.” She appeared in 40 episodes of the 1995 show “Brotherly Love.” After leaving “CSI,” Vassey also appeared on “Two and a Half Men,” in addition to the TV show, “Necessary Roughness,” and”The Tick.”
David Caruso – Horatio Caine
Throughout his career, David Caruso was typecast in authoritarian roles such as policemen and therefore, will most likely be best known for his role as Horatio Caine. Surprisingly, despite being one of the most memorable characters in the CSI franchise, David Caruso’s career flickered out after “CSI: Miami” wrapped in 2012. Apparently, it is both expensive and challenging to bring Caruso onto a project, so it appears that he remains more or less a retired actor, and hasn’t appeared well-known projects since 2012.
Laurence Fishburne – Dr. Ray Langston
Leaving “CSI” in no way hindered Fishburne’s career as he went on to star in multiple films and TV shows, including “Man of Steel,” “Contagion,” “Hannibal,” and “Where’d You Go Bernadette,” just to name a few. These days, he portrays the sassy grandfather, Pops, on the hit TV show “Blackish.” Fishburne has received multiple Emmy award nominations and wins and was also nominated for an academy award for his role in “What’s Love Got to Do with It.” It’s safe to say that Fishburne’s career is far from over!
Aisha Tyler – Mia Dickerson
Aisha Tyler has managed to have a flourishing career after “CSI.” In 2001 she took over as one of the hosts of “The Talk” and she has also starred in a variety of movies and television shows like “Bedtime Stories,” “Criminal Minds” and “Diary of a Future President,” among others. In her career so far, Aisha has managed to gracefully tackle many areas of expertise; becoming an author, producer, and director.
