We heard you got a gig on CSI: Cyber?
“Yes, I did. I’m really excited. It’s a big gig. The pressure is on, but I’m channeling that into excitement, so I think it’s going to be good. I play Agent Daniel Grummitt. He’s sort of a sad tech specialist who chooses a life of computers so he doesn’t really have to interact with the real world. He’s also got millennial kind of self-deprecating sense of humor. There’s going to be some funny spots and some great parts. I’m really excited to be able to do more of a dramatic character with a little bit more history and burden to carry.”
CSI: Cyber stars Shad Moss (Brody Nelson), Charley Koontz (Daniel Grummitz) and James Van Der Beek (Elijah Mundo), along with guest star Pavllo Zengo, have posted 25 photos, tweets and videos on Twitter and Instagram over the past two weeks. You can find them embedded after the jump!

Ted Danson (DB Russell) spoke to WorldScreen.com about joining the cast of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation during the show’s twelfth season. Here’s an excerpt:
WS: You stepped into a successful franchise that for several years has been the most watched show in the world—any pressure there?
DANSON: I highly recommend it; it almost feels like cheating! It’s an amazing cast. So many of them have been there from the very beginning: Jorja Fox, George Eads, Paul Guilfoyle and Eric Szmanda. A lot of the writers, most of the crew, so many people had been there from day one and were still there 11 years later when I joined. I owe so much to them for having created this amazing series, with an audience that has remained very loyal all these years. The writing has remained so good. It was a luxury to step into this part and find my way.
