Is David Caruso smart? Hollywood has been tantalized by this question
ever since the actor's departure
from "NYPD Blue" in 1994. On the one hand, he threw away the leading
role on one of the most succesful and acclaimed television shows of
all-time to star in a series of increasingly terrible movies. On the
other hand, Caruso parlayed his string of duds into the leading role on
CSI:Miami, where he has been making $375,000
an episode since 2002. According to White Zombie
Zombie, who directed Caruso in an upcoming episode of the series,
the answer is no. While Caruso has apparently conquered the professional
wanderlust that nearly sabotaged his career in the '90s, Zombie told
Red Eye's Greg Gutfeld that the actor still struggles with tasks most
actors can perform naturally. Like sitting. And driving. And opening
Caruso's ability to slowly remove his sunglasses and say something that
doesn't make any sense, however, remains unchallenged.
