Onetime NCIS agent Sarah Jane Morris will find herself looking down the wrong end of a gun barrel (or a harpoon spear, or a human marionette pulley, or whatever twisted modus homicidii is at play) when she guest-stars on CBS’ Criminal Minds this fall.
Morris will appear in the sixth episode of Season 9 as a target of the killer du jour, TVLine has learned.
In addition to her arc as NCIS’ E.J. Barrett, the actress’ TV credits include Brothers & Sisters, guest-starring turns on Castle and Body of Proof and the upcoming A&E drama pilot Occult.
Criminal Minds resumes chasing UnSubs on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
The actress formerly known as Natalia Boa Vista will guest-star as Minds‘ Agent Mays, TVLine has confirmed.
LaRue tweeted the news to her followers Wednesday, when she also posted a photo of her with series stars Shemar Moore and A.J. Cook. to Instagram; she noted she’d had a “great day” on set.
La Rue portrayed CSI: Miami‘s lovely lab rat-turned-investigator for seven seasons, though daytime fans will recognize her as All My Children‘s Maria Santos, as well. Her other TV credits include Soul Food and Third Watch.
Criminal Minds‘ ninth season bows Sept. 25 at 9/8c.
The BAU has a new boss.
NYPD Blue and Caprica star Esai Morales has joined Criminal Minds as the new BAU section chief, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Morales will recur as Matt Cruz, a longtime FBI agent who gets promoted to work with the BAU and has a previous professional relationship with JJ (A.J. Cook) that will be revealed as the season progresses. Might they have worked together during her stint in the Department of Defense?
Morales will make his first appearance in the third episode of Season 9. Showrunner Erica Messer previously told TVGuide.com that Hotch (Thomas Gibson) would be acting section chief for the summer in the wake of the death of their former boss Strauss (Jayne Atkinson) in the Season 8 finale.
Besides NYPD Blue and Caprica, Morales has appeared in Law & Order: SVU and Burn Notice, and co-starred in La Bamba.
Season 9 of Criminal Minds premieres Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c on CBS.
TVLine has learned exclusively that David Anders will guest-star in the coming run’s third episode as Anton Harris, a serial slayer whose M.O. involves the (gulp) lobotomization of his victims.
Anders’ recent (of many) TV credits include Necessary Roughness (where he’s currently recurring), Once Upon a Time (as Dr. Whale/Dr. Frankenstein) and Arrow (as bad guy Cyrus Vanch).
Criminal Minds launches its new season on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c.
Ghost Whisperer vet Camryn Manheim is heading back to CBS this fall via Criminal Minds, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actress — whose tube credits also include ABC’s The Practice and, more recently, NBC’s Harry’s Law — will play the mother of an UnSub in the procedural’s two-part Season 9 premiere.
Manheim’s character is very protective and watchful over her son, whom she knows has some serious emotional problems (killing women who look like his ex-girlfriend, among them).
Rumor has it mom is carrying around some deep, dark family secrets of her own.
