James Van Der Beek Hired by 'CSI: Cyber' as Series Regular

The Dawson Leery of 'Dawson's Creek' will play Agent Mundo who often puts himself at risk to seek permanent justice.

James Van Der Beek has landed a new job, not long after his comedy "Friends with Better Lives" was canceled by CBS. The "Dawson's Creek" alum will stay on the network since he has been recruited as a series regular on new series "CSI: Cyber".

The "Labor Day" star will play FBI agent Elijah Mundo, an expert in battlefield forensics recruited by Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette). 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.

"CSI: Cyber" is inspired by producer Mary Aiken's previous work as a cyber-psychologist. It will debut in midseason, taking over the Sunday, 10 P.M. slot from its mother show "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", which is moved from the Wednesday line-up this fall.

Just recently, former "Ally McBeal" star Peter MacNicol was tapped to play Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, Agent Ryan's supervisor, in permanent capacity. The cast also includes Charley Koontz as Agent Daniel Grummitz.

Van Der Beek most recently starred on "Friends with Better Lives" which aired only eight episodes on CBS. He has guest starred on a number of popular TV shows, including "Criminal Minds", "How I Met Your Mother", "One Tree Hill" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit". His other starring comedy "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23", however, was short-lived too.
