CSI Files posted a statement from George Eads (Nick Stokes) earlier today, relating to the recent news that he would be taking a leave of absence from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. The Hollywood Reporter has posted an update to their original story, including a statement from Eads’ representative about the situation. The rep said Eads’ impending absence is the result of a “behind-closed-doors disagreement” with a showrunner. Despite some uncertainty about Eads’ future on CSI, the rep confirmed that the actor “will definitely be returning to the show” after missing several episodes of season 14, adding that Eads “has nothing but the greatest respect for the creative and professional choices of the producers and writers that are behind CSI.”
