Shakeup brewing at "Law & Order: CI"

Ausiello Files, 9.16.09

USA Network is finalizing a deal to bring Law & Order: CI back for a ninth season, but there’s a catch. Actually there are a few catches. Here’s what I’m hearing…

* Julianne Nicholson is out. The actress, who recently gave birth to her second child, has opted not to return. Saffron Burrows (My Own Worst Enemy) has emerged as the frontrunner to replace her.

* Burrows would be partnered with Jeff Goldblum, although his deal is also not 100 percent done.

* Where does that leave Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe? The CI vets are in talks to return in some capacity.

Thanks MarieDeFrance, Nantz and Drew!

First and most of all, thank you so much for this information. My comments in no way diminish my deep appreciation for this blog and my sincere gratitude for this update!

My comment on the information:
** Where does that leave Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe? The CI vets are in talks to return in some capacity.**

I just can't fathom what "in some capacity" means. Without Vince and Katy partnered as Detective Goren and Eames in at the very least, episodes alternating weekly, there is no LO:CI - period. Because what is LO:CI without Bobby Goren? In what "other capacity" could Goren/Eames return?

I don't know how they can set a tentative schedule for the return of the series without having all of this settled.

But again, thanks so much for the update!

What the heck does THAT mean...in some capacity?!

I am troubled by the phrase "return in some capacity" - really troubled!

No Alex and Bobby.....NO LOCI.


"...return in some capacity?" If Mr. D and Ms. E don't come back for the leads in alternating episodes, USA might as well just come out and say the show is over. After 8 seasons, how can they not see that these to actors ARE LOCI?

So it's not just my bad English: "return in some capacity" sounds creepy to anyone here. If Vincent and Kate are tired of being in the show I'd like to hear it from their own voices, if it's the other way around I can't believe USA is getting rid of the reason why this show exists.
I remember Burrows in a cinematographic version of Strindberg's drama Miss Julia along with Peter Mullan and in a London gangsters movie with Malcolm Mac Dowell and Paul Bettany. She's got a glossy and unsimpathetic kind of beauty, I wonder how they'll manage to make her believable as a cop

No Goren & Eames, no ci for this family---they are why viewers watch
this program...especially Goren, not too personal (soapy) not too rigid (plot), just right...other crime dramas get far too personal...they"re pretty forgetable...

no Goren & Eames, no CI for this family...It's the perfect crime drama...newer programs are too soapy...CI has it just right...just enough of the personal to keep it interesting!
