Bow Wow Joins CSI: Cyber as a Series Regular
First it was Dawson as an FBI agent, and now it's Lil' Bow Wow as a computer hacker.
Moss will play Brody "Baby Face" Nelson, a prolific 19-year-old hacker who's ordered by a judge to assist Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) with a cyber case, or else he'll face jail time. Brody essentially raised himself, joining "hacktivist" groups that gave him a sense of family. He gained notoriety by hacking into the stock exchange and wiring half a billion dollars to his bank account.
“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,’” series creator Anthony Zuiker said in a statement. “It will be a redemption story and a cautionary tale all wrapped into one."
Moss is currently the host of BET's 106 & Park. His previous television credits include guest spots on Moesha, Smallville, and Ugly Betty, as well as a starring role as Charlie on Entourage.
