He may have been in one of the longest running drama series in recent US television history, but former CSI star Gary Dourdan evidently has been keeping a good record of his accounts of money made from the time, with TMZ reporting that the actor has recently been forced to file for bankruptcy.
The figures that are being touted about by TMZ are enough to make the eyes water, even in these days of debt. Dourdan apparently has over $1.8 million in assets which sounds pretty good, except he owes some $1.73 million to his creditors. Oh. So how does that break down? Well, most of it’s owed to various banks - $1.689704 million to be very precise. Some of that is owed to Union Bank who hold the mortgage on his home that may be in default. His assets meanwhile amount to $200 cash, $3000 in a bank account, $4000 in furniture, $200 worth of books, $1,500 in clothes, $500 in watches and a 2006 Dodge Charger worth $7,000. Hmmm, it’s not looking good.
However, the actor claims that he’s anticipating “major acting roles” in the future that should help to pay off this debt and though that is indeed what they all say, we’d be churlish if we weren’t crossing our fingers for him for future auditions.
