Cibrian's character will be an officer from Hollywood who relocates to Miami and joins Horatio Caine's (David Caruso) team. The character will not replace Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), whose fate was left in question at the end of last season's finale. Show producers have confirmed that Rodriguez will be returning next season.
Cibrian's name has been in the gossip headlines recently due to allegations that he had an affair with country music singer Leanne Rimes, his costar in the Lifetime cable movie Northern Lights.
Cibrian's previous TV series credits include Third Watch, Invasion, Ugly Betty and The Starter Wife. [TV Guide]
