A new series regular role on CBS’s police procedural “CSI: Cyber” is going to the rapper Bow Wow. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, will play Brody “Baby Face” Nelson, a hacker who is ordered by a judge to work with Special Agent Avery Ryan, played by Patricia Arquette.
“Bow Wow is a gifted young actor who will have the responsibility, through his character, to set an example for young people who watch the show to ‘do what’s right’ even when you know ‘nothing but wrong,’” “CSI” creator Anthony E. Zuiker said in a press release. “It will be a redemption story and a cautionary tale all wrapped into one. The role of Nelson required someone with deep acting chops and off-the-charts smarts. Shad Moss is a unique talent that possesses both.”
