HOT NOW :

Jeff Goldblum has decided to exit USA's "Law and Order: Criminal Intent."

Goldblum's reps told Variety on Tuesday that the thesp has made up his mind to depart, and say it's not a negotiating tactic.

There's always the possibility that Goldblum can reverse course, but for now the actor said that his decision is final.

Goldblum's decision to leave comes after two years on the USA drama. Goldblum's option with the show and Wolf Films had expired, and his reps said the actor chose to exit "due to the uncertainty" surrounding the show's future.

Parting is said to be amicable – Goldblum enjoyed his time with USA and Dick Wolf's Wolf Films, but ultimately decided to move on.

The ninth season of "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" aired its finale July 6 on USA; the cabler has not yet determined whether it will give a tenth season to the show – which suffered audience erosion this last cycle.

Goldblum's exit – not yet confirmed by USA or Wolf – reps the latest casting change on the show, which underwent a major shift this year.

This season, Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian departed the show, while Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Saffron Burrows joined the cast.

Goldblum joined "Criminal Intent" in season eight, filling the void left by the departure of Chris Noth. Thesp has played Det. Zach Nichols over the past two years, at first alternating episodes with D'Onofrio. This season, with D'Onofrio departing, the focus shifted to Goldblum and partner Burrows.

Goldblum's other TV credits include the short-lived NBC drama "Raines." He also appeared in the Starz movie "Pittsburgh," as well as on an episode of that cabler's "Head Case."

Thesp will next be seen in the features "The Switch" and "Morning Glory."
