Vincent D'Onofrio has been on board since the beginning and is one of the best actors in the franchise. However, it has been known since he started
working for half a season he would eventually depart the show. I am one of the few fans who really likes what Jeff Goldblum has done for the show and
would love to see more of him. While Vincent is a one of a kind actor, I think he has done all he could with the character.
The show has been very dark the last few seasons and does need to lighten up. Mental illness, cancer and other ills have been the main focus of this
show. I do not want to see it get silly like "Monk", but it would be nice to see the characters smile once in a while, too.
Vincent will be around for the next season, and can come back to do guest appearances.
I am very excited to see Saffron Burrows cast as Jeff's partner. She was wonderful in "Boston Legal" and should shine here.
