CSI: Miami Doctor Is Out... and Hitting the Bar?

Any CSI: Miami fans who never warmed up to The 4400 alumna Megalyn Echikunwoke as a satisfactory replacement for original cast member Khandi Alexander might have cause to feel vindicated.

Echikunwoke this week surfaced on TNT's Raising the Bar, where she has landed a recurring role and is poised for an on-screen romance with J. August Richards' prosecuting attorney.

Echikunwoke will appear in at least three episodes of the legal drama, a TNT rep tells TVGuide.com.

What does this mean for the actress' run as CSI: Miami's medical examiner?

When last seen in this season's penultimate episode, Echikunwoke's Dr. Tara Price was being hauled off on charges of stealing evidence from deceased victims. (Um, ew.) In the season finale, no mention was made of the character's fate.

A spokesperson for the CBS procedural would not confirm Echikunwoke's exit from the cast, but instead teased, "On CSI: Miami, you never know when someone will return."

Price had to fill Alexander's very big shoes, and she just didn't seem to fit into the cast dynamic. I'm not sorry to see her go. I hope the next ME is interesting.
