Shad Moss has got a new gig! CSI: Cyber will welcome the 106 & Park host as Brody “Baby Face” Nelson, a highly intelligent hacker. The rapper-turned-actor made the announcement via his personal Instagram page, giving more insight into his character’s background in the caption.

This will add to the growing list of television ventures for Moss. In the past, he appeared in Entourage, Ugly Betty, Smallville, Brothers Garcia and Moesha.
CSI: Cyber is set to premiere during the 2014-2015 season on CBS.
