Chris Noth Leaves Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Chris NothAfter leaving his mark on two different Law & Order franchises, has decided to leave the Dick Wolf family once again.

Noth, who has been playing Det. Mike Logan on for three years, originated the character when the first series unfolded on NBC back in 1990. (He stuck around that time through 1995.)

When the program returns for its 8th season (it’s still in the middle of its seventh), Jurassic Park‘s Jeff Goldblum will be the new face sharing screen time with Vincent D’Onofrio.

In a statement, USA’s executive vice-president of original programming said, “Jeff is one of the most exciting actors around and is a perfect addition to the Law & Order: Criminal Intent ensemble. We are very excited to see what new moves he will bring to the Major Case Squad.” Well, I hope he brings a lot - especially since he’ll reportedly be getting about $250,000 per episode.

There’s been no word as to how or when Noth will be making his exit.
