team will welcome a new member this fall.
Former "Third Watch" and "Invasion" star Eddie Cibrian will be a regular on the show for its eighth season. He'll play an officer from Hollywood, Fla., who joins the CSI team in Miami.
(Potential spoiler in the next paragraph.)
What he won't be, at least according to The Hollywood Reporter, is a replacement for Adam Rodriguez's Eric Delko, whose fate was uncertain following a season-finale cliffhanger. The show's producers tell the paper that Rodriguez will be back next season.
Cibrian most recently starred in the Lifetime movie "Northern Lights" opposite LeAnn Rimes — which led to rumors (which both he and Rimes have denied) that the two were having an affair. The latest blast in the story came from Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, who claimed earlier this month that Rimes was "stalking" Cibrian.
Cibrian's other credits include stints on "Ugly Betty" and "The Starter Wife." He starred in CBS' pilot "Washington Field" earlier this year.
