LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Two stars of the CBS hit television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation were fired for breach of contract, KCBS-TV and Variety reported Thursday.

Actors Jorja Fox and George Eads, who play investigators Sara Sidle and Nick Stokes, were fired after asking for more money to stay on the show, the reports said.

Danica Smith, publicist for both Fox and Eads, said Fox was fired Wednesday but did not have details. Smith could not confirm whether Eads was fired.

A CBS spokesman said the network had no comment.

Eads didn't show up for work Thursday, the first day of production for the next season, said the news station and Variety, which posted a story on its Website on Thursday.

The actors were in the fifth of their seven-year contracts.

Though a search was under way for their replacements, it's unclear whether show creators will recast the characters or develop new ones, the reports said.

The show picked up four Emmy nominations Thursday, including one for best drama series

They were apparently sacked because they failed (even tho they both say they sent them) to send in letters confirming that they would be on the set for the first day of production.

What a **** up.

if she was the girl from the pilot she was murdered by a perp.
Warrick was supposed to be there with her as she was new, but he was off gambling.
