Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Luke Perry has joined the cast of CSI: Cyber in a potentially recurring role.
Perry will play Nick Dalton, a former FBI agent who was destined to run the cyber unit in Washington DC. After a classified falling out, Dalton set his sights on becoming a "futurist" for the private sector. According to a Cyber insider, Dalton will hold many secrets to Special Agent Avery Ryan's (Patricia Arquette) backstory.
A spin-off of CSI and inspired by the work of real-life cyber psychologist Mary Aiken, CSI: Cyber centers on the FBI's Cyber Crime Division, which targets illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world.
The cast also includes James Van Der Beek as FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, Charley Koontz as Agent Daniel Grummitz, Peter MacNicol as Avery's supervisor, Assistant Director Stavros Sifter and Shad Moss (aka Bow Wow) cyber-intrusion savant Brody "Baby Face" Nelson.
CSI: Cyber will launch midseason on CBS.
