Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle) is back on the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation payroll according to reports which say the actress negotiated a deal to return at her old salary.
Variety (via Yahoo! News) is reporting that Fox will return to the set next week when CSI goes into production for its fifth season. Fox's salary will remain the same at approximately $100,000 an episode.
The AP (via Yahoo! News) reports than an anonymous source suggests that George Eads (Nick Stokes), who was fired alongside Fox last week, may have opened the door for talks with CBS when he made his public apology at the TCA press tour (story). Eads, who claims he overslept the first day of filming, is talking with CBS executives about the possibility of returning to CSI as well. The actor is eager to resume his role: "I want all this to work out. CSI is a part of who I am," he said.
While the CSI actors work to get their jobs back, one CSI: Miami star may be ready to leave his. According to The Houston Chronicle, Rory Cochrane (Tim Speedle) is asking Miami executives to write him out of the show. Cochrane, who had roles in Dazed & Confused, Empire Records and Hart's War, reportedly wants to focus on his movie career.
