New York Crime Lab’s talented technician Adam Ross will no longer be just a recurring character on the series CSI: NY. A.J. Buckley, who plays the said role, will be a full-time cast member when the crime drama series returns for season 4.
Introduced in season 2 to help out in the Audio/Visual department, Buckley’s character has been a common sight in the lab since then. Eventually, his diverse skills have become a big help in aiding evidence collection and assisting in reconstruction, making him an occasional companion to field operatives in the crime scene. Overall, he has appeared on 20 episodes of CSI: NY so far.
Co-executive producer Peter Lenkov has spoken with CSI Files’ Kristine Huntley earlier this month, revealing that Buckley would be getting more airtime in the upcoming season.
“I think the idea is to make him a regular the same way Sid [Robert Joy] is in every episode, but make Adam a little bit more of a presence, our lab guy, our go-to guy. We adore him. It’s really fun to write for him because he really has a voice,” he said.
Buckley, whose acting credits include The X-Files, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Entourage, has mentioned back in February that a guest star does not guarantee a spot in any given episode during the season.
“You never know with recurring characters and I go into each episode thinking it could be my last,” he said. “I know the writers have really responded. I dig this character. I do have a lot of fun with it and I enjoy seeing what they come up with for me to do.”
Catch Buckley, as well as new season 4 additions, Kerr Smith and Bess Wohl, when CSI: NY returns on Wednesday, September 26.
