James Van Der Beek Gets Recurring Role on CBS’ ‘CSI: Cyber”
The Friends With Better Lives star will continue with CBS in the upcoming series. He will play FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, described as an “expert in battlefield forensics recruited by special agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) for his war efforts in Afghanistan. Mundo is a savant when it comes to weaponry, vehicles and bombs. A self-proclaimed action junkie, Mundo will often put himself at risk to seek permanent justice, while Ryan will level his die-hard behavior with her expertise in psychology.”
CSI: CYBER is drama inspired by the advanced technological work of real-life Cyber Psychologist Mary Aiken. Special Agent Avery Ryan heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. She also knows firsthand how today’s technology allows people to hide in the shadows of the Internet and commit serious crimes of global proportion. While other agents search for criminals in dark homes and alleys, Ryan searches the “dark net,” a place deep in the bowels of the Web where criminals are anonymous, money is untraceable and where everything is for sale with just a keystroke.
CSI: Cyber will air on Sundays during CBS’ midseason.
