How to get bigint from database in C#?

This code in C# doesnt work.. it crashes ... playerid does have a value in the database.. and it is a bigint

long playerid;
playerid = (long)pRS.Fields["playerid"].Value;

This code in C++ does work.
long playerid;

Can anyone tell me why the C# code isnt working?
I am able to get all the other info in C# (strings).

The error I get is

"Specified cast is not valid"
