Satellite TV Guru says "Vincent D’Onofrio Out on Criminal Intent"

There is a new article by Satellite TV Guru published today:

Vincent D’Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, Eric Bogosian and Julianne Nicholson are all leaving Law and Order: Criminal Intent early in the show’s upcoming ninth season. The departures were confirmed by USA a few weeks ago.
D’Onofrio has been on CI since the show’s beginning as the idiosyncratic Detective Robert Goren. His leaving is just part of an overhaul at the show that includes bringing on Saffron Burrows as Nicholson’s replacement.
According to Law & Order creator/executive producer Dick Wolf, D’Onofrio will appear in a two-part opener of season nine that will serve as his official hand-off to Jeff Goldblum. Goldblum joined the cast last season when he replaced Chris Noth, who is now a regular on CBS’ The Good Wife and will appear in next year’s Sex and the City 2.
Though it is unclear why the cast shake up is happening, fans are convinced it is because USA wants to bring new characters that better reflect the lighter fare of their original programming like Monk, Psych and their newest series, White Collar. Fans have even gone as far as to send cases of marshmallow Fluff to the show’s headquarters, implying that the network only wants to show programming that is “fluff”.
In a statement, D’Onofrio left the door open to returning on the show for guest-starring stints. “For all my loyal ‘CI’ fans, I wouldn’t be surprised if Goren pops up from time to time,” he said.
