I really liked Karen Thomas but they are all so talented it is hard to pick. David Carradine was very good.

James Van Der Beek for me so far.

Lori said...

I liked David Carradine and her name escapes me right now--the one who played Crazy Jane. What a pair!

I also liked the ladies who played Morgan's mother and sisters--they had a really good chemistry with each other and Morgan

I really like Bill Smitrovich who played the police officer in the past 2 episodes. He is kind of a big deal actor, but he didn't get much press for this due to Dawson and Don Swayze. I love their choice of guest actors..they do a great job. Kudos to the casting director!

Lee :)

I am getting old and can't remember his name but I loved the guest actor in The Tribe. I liked how well he worked with Thomas Gibson.

Maura said...

I liked the actress who played Sara Jane in Riding the Lightening. She was so great. I cried like a baby in during that episode when I realized her son Riley was still alive.

Sharon said...

James Van Der Beek also for me.

Jeanetta Arnette for "Riding the Lightening," James van de Beek was amazing, and Tony Todd (The Candyman) who only did one scene in "Natural Born Killer" but was so good as a father accused of killing his family and the anguish he felt over their loss.......

nebula said...

I think James van der Beek because he was so unexpectedly good. I really wasn't sure if he would shake the whole "Dawson" thing and he really did.

I am going to go with James Van Der Beek too - he really was awesome. The role was unlike any other he's ever done and he did it so well :)

eliza said...

I was blown away with James Van Der Beek's performance and I really have a refound respect for his talent.

Mel said...

It is really hard picking a favorite. There have been so many good ones.

joyce said...

I have always liked JoBeth Williams. She was in "Empty Planet" episode.

Lin said...

Until this week I would have said Carradine ... but Van Der Beek was really really good ... um ... yeah, one of them.

Jan said...

I've seen Jane Lynch in so many different things, most recently as a sex therapist on Boston Legal, that her transition into Spencer Reid's mentally ill mother is truly astonishing. They actually have mom-son chemistry in which you can see past the schizophrenia to their earlier relationship. I'm glad they brought her back for the sad flashbacks on Wed.

Definitely James Van Der Beek, he was nothing short of FANTASTIC as Tobias.

slashgirl said...

Jill, you keep asking me to pick one. *sigh* Oh, well, you know me by now...

I thought Patrick Kilpatrick (Vincent Perrota in Natural Born Killer) was outstanding. I love that ep--and the interview scenes with both Gideon and Hotch are great.

I also loved Gregory Norman Cruz (John Blackwolf, The Tribe). Loved the interaction between him and Hotch. I really wish they could work out some way to bring Blackwolf back for another ep.

Those are probably my top two (at least for today) but I think they've had so many great guest stars, it's amazing!

Billie said...

I love the woman who plays Reid's mother. I like the natural chemistry of them in scenes. They work well together.

Cindy said...

I liked the episode which had the two ex stars of Judging Amy in it. One played a Dr. and one played the Nurse who was the unsub. Can't remember the title of the episode.

callie said...

loved van der beek.

Lee said...

Chad Allen!!! How could we have forgotten about Chad Allen. Oh and they guy from Empty Planet, that played the bomber..he was on my old favorite show American Dreams! Great guest stars I tell ya!!!

gibson lover said...

I couldn't pick just one so I pick Charles Haid and Jeanetta Arnette.

Kris said...

How can we pick just one? I think Jane Lynch is a great actress. She was on Boston Legal and I've been on that set a few times this season. As an actor, it would be a dream to work with someone like her, or even James Van Der Beek. He has really shown his acting range since Dawson's Creek.

I can't wait to start getting some principal roles and work with some of these great actors.

Daniel said...

I am going to pick Jane Lynch because I think there is chemistry between her and MGG. They work well together and you feel like they are in tantum.

Who was unsub in Derailed? I thought he did a great job.

DNY LOVES CRIMINAL MINDS said...

I really can't pick just one or two. I think the casting director for the show is doing an awesome job. All the guests are great. I really loved Carradine because I loved his scenes with Mandy but I could say something nice about all of them so I pick them all. :)

saltines said...

Voting for the twins in the episode about the FBI agent trying to kidnap both of them.

Sly Sylvia said...

James Van Der Beek. Who in world could have guessed he could play a psycho. Great job and playing a psycho can't be easy.

sindee said...

I'd pick Gregory Norman Cruz aka John Blackwolf in "The Tribe" - loved the "jokes" between him and Hotch.

Jessica said...

I loved Carradine the best.

jacqui said...

they do tend to pull off some great guest stars for this show, don't they? my favorite guest on the show so far is the guy who played John Blackwolf in "The Tribe". I just loved that episode and his interaction with Hotch.
