Poplar teenager to star on CBS series tonight

Bridger Zadina

Will it be Bridger's finale?

Bridger Zadina, a 15-year-old actor from Poplar, will be a guest star on tonight's season finale of "Numb3rs" on CBS.

He'll be playing Jim Mazzola Jr. in the episode, according to his father, Simon Zadina.

Bridger, who lives in Los Angeles, has been on prime-time TV before: Last year he played a transgender teen in an episode of "Law & Order: SVU."

His dad said Bridger would rather be living in Wisconsin or Minnesota than L.A., "but you have to do what you have to do to be available for auditions."

Between acting jobs Bridger does Civil War re-enactments as a soldier in the New York 69th Irish Brigade. He turns 16 on March 23, but his dad says he will not be driving in L.A.

"Maybe we will let him drive when he is 28."
