CSI will say goodbye to one of its original stars.

Paul Guilfoyle, who played Captain Jim Brass on all 14 seasons of CSI, reportedly found out last week that his character would be leaving the series.

“Paul made Captain Brass a standout character,” CSI executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Don McGill said in a statement. “He is not just an original cast member, he is an original. In a show about forensics, fans always looked forward to the handcuffs coming out, and Captain Brass putting his spin on the crime of the week, just as Paul Guilfoyle put his indelible stamp on the character and the show. He will be missed.”

When Guilfoyle departs, George Eads, who plays Nick Stokes, will be the only original cast member remaining.

Guilfoyle's last episode will be the May 7 season finale.
