Most people would say Sherry Stringfield is nuts. The actress is quitting a great-paying gig on television's highest rated drama, ER. However, unlike her former NYPD Blue costar David Caruso, who left the hit ABC series to make middling movies, Stringfield just wants to spend some quality time with her boyfriend in New York.

The 28-year-old actress, who earns about $70,000 per episode, taped her last episode of the hospital drama last week and will be phased out of the series beginning with this Thursday's episode, Daily Variety reported today.

According to reports, to get out of her contract, Stringfield has agreed not to work on TV for the final 2 1/2 years of her deal with producer Warner Bros. She might also have to ask the studio's permission if she wants to make a feature film during that span.

But Stringfield doesn't have any work plans yet. She reportedly just wants to relax in New York. The actress has been acting constantly since graduating college: She had a stint on Guiding Light before joining NYPD Blue for its first season, as the ex-wife of David Caruso; she left that series to become one of the original emergency room docs.

Will Lewis have a fling with Greene before hitting the road? ER's producers are mum on plot developments--apparently multiple storylines have been shot. When asked how Lewis will leave, one flack said, "Tune in Thursday and find out what happens."
