Ne-Yo is going from singing to murdering.
The hip hop artist has landed a role on CSI: NY, an insider confirmed to People this week, coming on board an episode later this season in the role of a hit man. A stylish hit man, that is.
"Ne-Yo will be playing a professional hit man who doesn't fit the usual image of a hired killer," says a rep. "This guy carries himself with elegant style, but a violent efficiency."
Look for this installment to air in February 2011. It will likely feature music from Ne-Yo's latest album, "Libra Scale."
