Aly Michalka — best known for her starring role in the CW’s short-lived cheer drama Hellcats –– has snagged a guest role on CSI: NY next fall. The young actress will play a hard rocker named Miranda in the series, which returns to CBS on Sept. 23.

Here’s the description: She’s a rocker who “explodes onto the stage of New York’s hottest underground clubs.” (Yep, Michalka sings!) Her character is questioned by the CSI team when the guy she’s been dating is found murdered.

Her episode will air Sept. 30. Michalka’s credits also include Easy A and the TV series Phil of the Future.
