It was announced on August 20, 2014 that Bow Wow (also Shad Moss) was going to star in CSI: Cyber. Hollywood Reporter used the term, "CSI: Cyber is going hip-hop".[1] When speaking to Digital Spy, it was said, "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."[2] It was also said "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."[2] City Chile When speaking about his character Shad Moss said that Brody was "savvy, young, had swag... a lot of swag".[3]
