Los Angeles: Rapper Bow Wow has joined the cast of `CSI: Cyber`. The rapper, also known as Shad Moss, will play a computer hacker named Brody `Baby Face` Nelson, reportedly.
In the show, his character is ordered by a judge to work with Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette), or go to prison.
"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`," creator of the `CSI` franchise Anthony E Zuiker said.
"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` stars Arquette as the head of the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, where she has to solve crimes that start online before they transfer to the real world.
