‘Criminal Minds’ Returns September 27 Without Thomas Gibson: Daniel Henney Chosen Over Gupton [Opinion]

Criminal Minds will return this fall without Thomas Gibson or Damon Gupton. Shemar Moore reportedly indicated he might be able to do a few cameos during Season 13 if his schedule with S.W.A.T permits. Newcomer Daniel Henney from Beyond Borders will replace Gupton.

Daniel Henney will portray Agent Matthew Simmons, the same character he played on Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. Can Daniel Henney do anything to fill the tremendous void left by Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore?

Kirsten Vangsness revealed the circumstances of Matthew Simmon’s transfer into the BAU to TV Guide. It seems that the Criminal Minds writers have decided that the entire IRT unit was disbanded.

Author Pete Klismet Jr. to visit Windsor-Severance Library

Pete Klismet Jr., a former criminal profiler for the FBI, soon will visit the Windsor-Severance Library to talk about his series “FBI Diary.”

Klismet said he was one of the first in a group of criminal profilers, which back then were called criminal psychologists. He said he likely will focus his speech on the book, which delves into the training the criminal psychologists received.

“It’s primarily about my selection to be among that very prestigious group at the time,” he said.

His books also works to debunk incorrect assumptions about criminal profilers, Klismet said.

“I am always — never without fail — asked the question, ‘Is “Criminal Minds” like it really is?’ ” he said.

His answer? No.

Klismet said he likes to share information with others, so it just

What Happened To The Unabomber’s Cabin? Curious ‘Manhunt’ Fans Can Visit It Today

Amidst the true crime sea that has recently flooded onto television screens everywhere, Discovery Channel’s eight-part limited series, Manhunt: Unabomber takes a new deep dive into an infamous case that spans decades and changed criminal profiling forever. As seen in the below exclusive clip from Tuesday’s Manhunt: Unabomber (airing at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery), FBI agent and brilliant criminal profiler James “Fitz” Fitzgerald, played by Sam Worthington uses Ted Kaczynski’s own writing to narrow down his true identity. Fitzgerald’s profiling skills aided in Kaczynski’s capture at his tiny cabin in the Montana wilderness. So, what happened to the Unabomber’s cabin? First off, since Kaczynski is serving a life sentence in prison after he plead guilty to 16 bombings that killed three people and injured dozens, he never gets to live in that cabin again.

Paul Bettany as Ted Kaczynski and Mark Duplass as David Kaczynski

On this week’s Manhunt: Unabomber, we get the first look of Mark Duplass cast as David Kaczynski.

David ultimately was the reason the FBI was able to track down and capture his older brother Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber.

After reading the Unabomber’s Manifesto in 1996, David acted on his wife Linda’s intuition and sent a sample of his brother Ted’s writing to the FBI for a comparative analysis.

Interestingly, David got a call stating that the letter he submitted was not a match and Ted was not a suspect. This was short-lived thank to the nature of FBI profiler, Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald, and the ongoing investigation that has been stalled.

Fitz now lives in Pennsylvania and works at the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. But he was still obsessed with the
