After establishing himself as a valuable supporting player on television and in films, David Caruso shot to stardom as a homicide detective not afraid to show his rear end on NYPD Blue. Due to a salary dispute, the actor exited the hit drama acrimoniously after one season and set out to become a movie star. He returned to the small screen in 1997 on the short-lived Michael Hayes. His second try at a comeback, CSI: Miami, was more successful.
