Davis, last seen in The CW’s short-lived Cult, will play a smart, athletic and competitive son of a decorated fireman. While on the surface outgoing, he is deep down a bit of a loner, with the soul of a poet and the mind of a mathematician.

His first episode airs in late October.

Davis’ casting comes as CSI is set to lose original castmember George Eads for a handful of episodes following an on-set altercation with a writer.

CSI opens its new season on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
