Emmy-winner Peter MacNicol has joined the cast of CSI: Cyber.
The Ally McBeal actor will play Stravros Sifter, assistant director for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C., and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan, played by Patricia Arquette. Sifter is described as “a shrewd and savvy networker” and “a charmer with a hint of malice.” MacNicol joins Arquette and Charley Koontz in the midseason series, the fourth spin-off in the highly successful CSI franchise.
The show—produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television—will premiere sometime in January, airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
