Fall TV Preview

CSI: NY Scoop: Justin Bruening, HIMYM Alum Cop Killer Guest Spots

All My Children alum Justin Bruening has landed yet another fall TV guest spot, this time on CSI: NY — and he’s not the only one bound for the CBS procedural.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Robbie Amell (Robin’s puppy-like lover on How I Met Your Mother, and little bro to Vampire Diaries alum Stephen Amell) will appear opposite Bruening in the Oct. 21 installment of the series.

Bruening will play Hank, a recent parolee who becomes a suspect in a murder investigation, much to the dismay of his basketball star younger brother (Amell).

WeLoveSoaps.net broke the news of Bruening’s casting.

Prior to landing their respective CSI: NY guest spots, both actors lined up gigs on two of the new TV season’s buzziest freshman series. As TVLine first reported, Bruening will attempt to woo Sarah Michelle Gellar on The CW’s Ringer, while Amell will be a recurring player on ABC’s Revenge, fighting over a rich girl with Gossip Girl alum Connor Paolo.

Season 8 of CSI: NY launches Friday, Sept. 23.
