Rapper Bow Wow is headed to a crime procedural. The rapper has bagged a role in CSI: Cyber, a spinoff of the popular crime franchise.
Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, will portray a computer hacker who works with Special Agent Avery Ryan, a role that will be played by Patricia Arquette. The job is actually his punishment for committing tech crimes! How modern, right?
Show creator Anthony Zuiker spoke about the casting, saying, "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. 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."
Riveting. Really! Moss it up!
James Van Der Beek aka Dawson from Dawson's Creek will also star.
