Now, this actor, Rory Cochrane, is a definitely familiar face. Originally from Syracuse, this actor’s debuts were appearances in the early 1990s films, “A Kiss Before Dying” and “Fathers & Sons.” However, you are more likely to remember him from his notable and quirky performances in the 1990s teen films “Dazed and Confused” and “Empire Records.”
In fact, it was Cochrane’s performance as Ron Slater in “Dazed and Confused” which gave his acting career the momentum it needed. Cochrane’s career at “CSI: Miami” was never expected to last as the actor had too many upcoming job opportunities like films “Argo,” “Black Mass” and “Hostiles” where the actor starred alongside A-listers such as Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, and Johnny Depp. In terms of TV, Cochrane also starred in “24.”
Sofia Milos — Now
Swiss-born actress Sofia Milos does a great job bringing out the character’s complexity. Milos has been featured in a number of other series like “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Sopranos,” and “The Twilight Zone.” Certainly, one of her biggest acting debuts has been “CSI: Miami,” but other major roles include joining the main cast of “The Secret Lives of Men” and “The Border.”
More recently, the actress portrays Daria in the historical drama, “Project Blue Book.” Milos’s acting is not limited to TV series, but she has also recently featured in the Italian film, “Odissea nell'ospizio.” For those of you who were sad to see Milos depart “CSI: Miami,” you will be relieved to hear that she has reunited with former “CSI” stars in “CSI: Beyond Borders."
Sofia Milos — Then
Being once married to Supervisor Horacio Caine’s brother, but being in love with Caine is not easy for criminal investigator Yelina Salas. Of course, Caine cannot act on his feelings owing to his respect for his brother, but he happens to be there for Salas when she needs him and goes out of his way to protect her. We don’t blame Salas for being a bit confused about how things stand between them.
Viewers grow curious about Salas’ character development and direction especially as she suffers more and more from unrequited love for Horacio. To make things more complex, Salas ends up developing feelings for one of Caine’s main rivals. And then there is always the matter of the former husband. Needless to say, things get very interesting with this character.
Rory Cochrane — Then
If you are an uber-“CSI” fan, then you will have encountered this character way back in 2002. It was then that “CSI” viewers realized that there would be possible spin-offs of the popular crime-scene investigation show. Given that this character’s nickname is Speed, it tells us much about his personality. For one thing, he drives a bike.
Detective Timothy “Speed” Speedle doesn’t waste time even if it means being a bit careless. He forms quite the bond with fellow investigator Eric Delko and the two make quite a formidable force. He is one of those characters who seems to get less patient and more careless as the seasons progress. We don’t have much time with Speed as a bit of carelessness on his part leads to the character’s early exit.
Jonathan Togo — Now
Before “CSI: Miami,” Jonathan Togo starred in the film, “Mystic River” with A-listers like Sean Penn and Tim Robbins. Other earlier credits include appearances in “Law & Order,” “Ed,” and “Judging Amy.” While “CSI: Miami” is Togo’s main acting claim to fame, Togo remains a steady figure in the TV series circuit such as appearing in “Covert Affairs” and the popular TV series “Lucifer.”
Togo has also been featured in movies like the comedy “7 Chinese Brothers,” “A Rising Tide” and “Infinity Baby.” Clearly, Togo has a true love for film as he created a web that doesn’t have a PG name. Fortunately, he also created another web series. It doesn’t have the catchiest name, “Casted: The Continuing Chronicles of Derek Riffchyn, Greatest Casting Director in the World. Ever."
