Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow, has joined the cast of the CBS spinoff, “CSI: CYBER.” He will play 19-year-old hacker Brody “Baby Face” Nelson. Nelson is a cyber-intrusion savant. He’s been ordered by a judge to work with Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) “on loan” to assist with a cyber case.
“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,’” said Anthony E. Zuiker, creator of the CSI franchise. “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.”
“CSI: CYBER” is a drama inspired by the advanced technological work of real-life Cyber Psychologist Mary Aiken. The show revolves around Special Agent Avery Ryan who heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world.
