The rapper-turned-television personality will play a crafty hacker on the series.
Shad Moss has got a new gig! CSI: Cyber will welcome the 106 & Park host as Brody "Baby Face" Nelson, a highly intelligent hacker. The rapper-turned-actor made the announcement via his personal Instagram page, giving more insight into his character's background in the caption.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nelson, the rapper's character, will battle back and forth with the conflicts of working for the Feds and trying to keep his hands out of the Deep Web, where he was trained to be one of the most creative hackers in the world.
"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.
This will add to the growing list of television ventures for Moss. In the past, he appeared in Entourage, Ugly Betty, Smallville, Brothers Garcia and Moesha.
CSI: Cyber is set to premiere during the 2014-2015 season on CBS.
