Justin Bieber guest stars on 'CSI' and CBS adds a new midseason drama

Do not accuse CBS of being old.

When "CSI" returns for its 11th season premiere on Sept. 23, it will have a very special guest star. You may have heard him. He makes young girls squeal.

Cast in a role completely against type, Justin Bieber-- yes, the Bieber -- will play a 16-year-old singer. Wait! There's more.

In his acting debut, Bieber's playing a troubled teen who confronts a decision regarding his only brother and therefore has to confront the CSIs. Sounds scary. Hopefully, these confrontations won't do anything to his hair flip.In separate news that won't make teens squeal, but makes us a little giddy, CBS has ordered a new drama starring Freddy Rodriguez ("Six Feet Under" and "Ugly Betty"). "Chaos" focuses on a group of rogue spies. The rogue part is supposed to make us laugh. We hope it does.

"Chaos" will premiere in midseason and also stars Eric Close, James Murray, Tim Blake Nelson, and Carmen Ejogo.
