TCA: Mandy Patinkin, we’ve sung this song before

Patinkin Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

The hot topic at the Nina Tassler panel at TCA on Wednesday was Mandy Patinkin’s mysterious exiting of “Criminal Minds.” Questions came in different forms but CBS Entertainment prexy Tassler stayed on point, saying only that Patinkin (pictured left) “came to me and asked to be released for personal issues.”

Is it that Patinkin wanted out to work on another project? Was it health-related? Does he get just tired of the series grind and decides enough’s enough?

Tassler wouldn’t budge. She said several times that she hoped that Patinkin would come out in the near future to tell his version of events, but it doesn’t seem likely. What’s in it for him by explaining why he wanted out?
