'CSI' Star Gary Dourdan

Files For Bankruptcy

These Bills Are Killing Me!

On this episode of "TMZ: Bankruptcy Scene Investigators" ... former "CSI" star Gary Dourdan throws in the towel and files for Chapter 11.

The troubled actor filed papers on August 30th -- and according to the docs, has a little over $1.8 mil in assets ... but is in the hole to his creditors to the tune of $1.73 mil.

A large chunk of that debt -- $1,689,704 million -- is owed to various banks, including Union Bank, which apparently holds the mortgage on his home that may be in default.

As for his assets -- $200 cash, $3k in a bank account, $4k in furniture, $200 worth of books, $1,500 in clothes, $500 in watches ... oh and a 2006 Dodge Charger worth $7,000.

Here's the kicker ... Gary says his disposable income is only $321 a month ... claiming his bills ($14,562 a month) eat up just about all of the $14,883 he pulls in on average.

The good news ... the actor says he "anticipates major acting roles" in the future ... which can help pay off his debt.

The end.

You have to admit the guy is hot... and I'm sure there are plenty of women [and men] who would gladly have him as their "roommate".
There's only one thing, he has this little problem with beating the sh1t out of a person [women] when he's pissed. So I guess if you don't piss him off you can bask in having a superhot for your arm candy.
Wait a minute... there's an idea, he should just rent himself out. I'm certain he could name his price and would be booked for years.

And thanks to drug use. He's good looking and had a good enough career going...too bad that's enough for some people. Meanwhile, other people would love to have had the same opportunities in life.
