New Gig Whispers: Bow Wow aka Shad Moss Joins Cast of CSI: Cyber
Bow Wow, who now prefers to be called by his birth name of Shad Moss, has been cast as a series regular on CBS’ CSI spinoff.
Shad will play 19-year-old hacker Brody “Baby Face” Nelson. 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. Growing up without any parental guidance, Nelson joined “hacktivist” groups to give himself an extended family. His dilemma will be working for the feds while trying to keep his fingers out of the Deep Web, where he was groomed to be one of the most prolific hackers in the world.
Zuiker, creator of the CSI franchise says of young Shad:
“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.”
Good for Shad!!
