Here’s some random casting news to start your morning, actress-comedienne Janeane Garofalo is looking for a new gig and she’s got her eye on one of the most popular dramas on television. According to several sources, Garofalo is making her way over to the upcoming “Criminal Minds” spin-off, which currently features Forest Whitaker and Beau Garrett as castmembers.
The new show will be called “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” (sounds like a joke regarding something else) and it centers on an elite team of agents within the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. The actress was originally slated to star in a medical drama from producer John Wells but it failed to make the cut during pilot season.
The team for “Criminal Minds” will include some interesting talents. So far they have an Oscar winning actor, a former model, and now a veteran comedienne getting in on the action. Who do you think she’ll play? With the glasses, and the no holds barred attitude we’re thinking she’ll be a boss of some sort. It would be cool to see her and Whitaker go head to head.
“Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” has been scheduled as a mid-season replacement so it will probably air in January of next year.
Do you think Garofalo has what it takes to co-star on Criminal Minds?
