Gary Dourdan, star of the hit TV series CSI, is filing for bankruptcy. The actor, who played leading man Warrick Brown for eight years, made the filing hoping to avoid losing his home to foreclosure.
In his filing, Dourdan claims about $1.8 million is assets and $1.7 million in debts. He says after his monthly bills are paid, he has less than $350 each month. In the filing, he declares assets of $4,000 in furniture as well as $1,500 in clothes and a vehicle worth $7,000.
Dourdan claims that after his character was killed on the show he attempted to work with Union Bank, which holds the mortgage on his house, to rework his payments. Those discussions weren’t fruitful, and now Dourdan is being foreclosed on. In March 2012, Dourdan filed suit against Union Bank concerning the matter.
In an interview with TMZ, Dourdan claims that he “anticipates major acting roles” that will restore his solvency.
Since leaving CSI, Dourdan has had some brushes with the law. He has two arrests for possession of drugs and one for hitting his girlfriend.
