Visnic, Tierney Confirm Leaving "ER"
Croatian actor Goran Visnic and his "ER" co-star Maura Tierney have confirmed to TV Guide they are on the way out of the fading NBC medical drama.
Earlier this year, Visnic had already announced he would be leaving the series at some point.
Now the actor said more specifically he would only do "a couple" (or fewer than five) episodes next season, the show's 14th.
He says: "We’re still talking about how and when we’re going to do it. But it’s kind of a logical progression because every summer I want to do a movie and... there are always problems with my scheduling. I think it’s a nice run to be on a show for eight years."
Tierney who is currently filming "Semi-Pro" with Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson would also like to do more features.
The show had already been renewed for the 14th season in a special 3-year deal in March 2005.
Following a surprisingly successful fall, "ER" has somewhat cooled off in the ratings in recent weeks and the 14th season may very well be its last.
