As CSI Files previously reported, executive producer Ann Donahue stated that CSI: Miami would be adding two series regulars during season eight: Eddie Cibrian and Omar Benson Miller. Cibrian first appeared in the season premiere, “Out of Time”, as Jesse Cardoza. Miller will make his first appearance on the show in the October 5 episode, “Bolt Action”.
Miller will play Walter Simmons, a man who transfers to Horatio’s team from the night shift. The character is from Louisiana, and he is an art theft specialist. Miller was originally added as a guest star, but the network recently picked him up as a series regular.
