Actor Vincent D'Onofrio has confirmed that he's handing over his TV cop badge and exiting Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

A statement from the actor, who played Detective Robert Goren in more than 130 episodes between 2001 and 2009, reads, "After eight seasons, and with the addition of Jeff Goldblum, now is the perfect time for me to explore other acting opportunities, and I leave the show knowing it is in great hands with Jeff." But he has assured fans that his character won't be killed off: "I wouldn’t be surprised if Goren pops up from time to time."

    @leighsophie -
    I don't think I have ever seen so much misinformation in one post about Vincent D'Onofrio - you couldn't have been more off base had you said he was leaving to tour with Michael Jackson - really.
    Most entertainment media has reported the cast change as a "mass firing" - I am inclined to agree until Vincent or Katie tell us otherwise.
