James Van Der Beek, who will forever be best known for starring in Dawson’s Creek no matter how old he gets or what else he does, has been tapped to be a series regular on CSI: Cyber. CBS’s new CSI series will air during the 2014-2015 season and stars Patricia Arquette, Peter MacNicol and Charley Koontz.

“We are excited to welcome an actor of James Ver Der Beek’s caliber to CSI: CYBER. Over his career, he has demonstrated a tremendous range of talent that makes him a perfect addition to our gifted cast,” stated the show’s executive producers.

The Plot:

CSI: Cyber is a drama inspired by the advanced technological work of real-life Cyber Psychologist Mary Aiken. The show revolves around Special Agent Avery Ryan who 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.

[Van Der Beek] will play FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, 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, Agent Mundo will often put himself at risk to seek permanent justice, while Ryan will level his diehard behavior with her expertise in psychology. Together, they will team up to fight the world’s toughest cyber crimes. Foreign and domestic.
