Oh that is so neat! I have always liked Kate Jackson. So that was the secret guest you wouldn't tell us about sooner, Jill? Well, glad you now did...and it is a good one! Looking forward to the episode.

Steph said...

Oooh now I can't wait. As if I wasn't going through this before. I need to get teh damn DVDs so I can feed my addiction to this show.

marina said...

I can't believe you kept the secret for so long. You said you would but I figured you would burst with excitement and tell us sooner. This is going to be an awesome episode. Prentiss has a mom and it is Kate Jackson. Cool.

Jan said...

They're going to have to do some heavy makeup on Kate Jackson to make her old enough to be Emily's mom! OMG! She's a contemporary of mine! Eek!

sarah h. said...

Very cool. It will be interesting to see Paget and Jackson working with each other.

Lin said...

Wow. Awesome casting! They do look very much alike -- I'll buy it. Well, what else would we expect from our brilliant casting people?

Can't wait to see it.

anna maria said...

I agree with Lin. Great casting. They do look like they could be family members. This really gives us something to look forward to and I thank you Jill for posting it.

joyce said...

Steph...start ingesting those DVDs!! Don't want your addiction starving. (grin)

Steph said...

I'd ingest them if I had em Joyce. Unfortunatly being the starving college student that I am, I can't afford DVDs that cost 50 bucks. Ah well Easter isn't too far away. Maybe the Rabbit will be nice and go to Circut City for me.

alicia said...

For our next episode we get an Angel. Way too cool.

I wonder if this is a one shot deal or if she will be droping in from time to time.

COOL!

jenny said...

She really does resemble Paget. I can see a similarity between them. Awesome casting.

tammy said...

She was always my favourite on Charlie's Angels. I love her!

Lisa said...

Ooh, I wasn't expecting to get the mom so soon. It'll be interesting to see how Emily reacts to her, especially if it's in the office and the rest of the team is watching. If she comes to the office, I think Hotch is going to raise some hell :D

Titania said...

Amazing casting! I'm really not up for a lot of Prentiss' backstory "line jumping" those of the older cast members; I'd rather see her wait her turn. Nevertheless, I am interested in seeing if there will be some sparks....

afrah said...

This is going to be great. She is a great actress.

amy r. said...

If they ever get Farrah Fawcett on the show my hubby will go nuts. He had the bigget crush on her years ago. Kate Jackson will be great. And since Zelman wrote it then it has to be first class.

Ambra said...

So we finally get to meet Emily's "impressive" diplomat mom! I can't wait to possibly find out how their relationship shaped Prentiss' views about politics. From what she said to Hotch, she doesn't sound like she has a great relationship with her mother.

shemar's girl said...

This is going to be good. She is a great actress.

leslie said...

Great casting. Prentiss' mom. Wow this should be good.

This is going to be really good.

She could easily pass as a relative of Paget's.

Ben said...

OMG! An Angel?

On my favourite show?

I am so super excited about that.

jojo said...

I am so hyped about seeing Kate Jackson on our show. Do you know who is playing the unsub since she is playing Emily's mom?

kayson said...

This should be really good.

wren said...

I am really excited about this. Now we have Kate Jackson, Gina and Kris all in the same episode. Way to impress us CM.

Macmillk said...

What a great person to guest star! I can't wait to see what the show brings between Emily and her mother, and therefore with the team (I can picture something happening in front of everyone else).

Or gosh, it'd be awful if something happened TO her mother and she died or something, or she got involved in the case they were working on (heck, being in politics perhaps she WAS the case they were working on?) and then the team had to help her deal with that and find the killer.

I'm ready to see something good happen! I love to brainstorm things that could go on in this show.

polly said...

I think she is going to be great as Prentiss' mom. This should be really interesting.

mt.suz said...

I agree with all the above comments but have a question..........You say Honor Among Thieves airs on CBS April 11th, but TV.com/epguides has it on CBS April 18th?? Hope you are right. It will be sooner. :)

DNY LOVES CRIMINAL MINDS said...

I really do not know. This is the date CBS said it will air. :)

mt.suz said...

If anybody knows it's CBS... Thanks. :-)

jolie said...

Did you get to meet Kate Jackson while you were there? I know you saw her but did you talk with her?

janie said...

What a great choice to play EP's mom. Kate Jackson is a wonderful actress. This is going to be great.

simone said...

Outstanding casting once again. Wow she is going to be so great on our show.

mara said...

I like Kate Jackson. I am guessing we are getting our Prentiss episode. Okay. Lets see her show us what she has. I am gonna root for her.

liza said...

Paget is going to be great with Kate Jackson and we are going to get more insight into her back story.

maxie said...

Exciting. Kate Jackson is an impressive actress. This will be really good.

june said...

She was my favorite Angel. I look forward to seeing her but I hate that we have to wait so long.

wilma said...

Aaron Zelman writing the script for our cast and Kate Jackson. You know it has to be good.

beth said...

I think this has all the markings of a favorite CM. Looking forward to it.

Anonymous said...

I'm very excited,Charlie's Angels used to be one of my favorite shows, and the physical matching between Kate and Paget is amazing. I agree we're getting her backstory a little quicker than we have with some of the others, but hey, we've been asking for it on here and now we have it.

And we have gotten most of the team, Hotch last week, Reid, in Fisher King and Revelations, JJ in North Mammon & Boogeyman, Morgan in Profiler Profiled, and Gideon is slated for later this season. That leaves Garcia, who all we know is she has a stepfather. Piece by piece, we'll get these guys profiled.

Grmpf, I couldn't figure out where I know Kate Jackson from. Already looked her up at imdb.com, but "nothing"... when Charlie's Angels aired I was TWO, so this doesn't match... ;-)

Whatever... I'm sure, she is a great actress and will fit well in this role.

And like some others, I'm really excited to see the interaction between Emily and her... sometimes... in a TV station "near Germany"...

gail said...

Looking forward to her appearance. Should be great.

brianna said...

Looking forward to it and since it is a definate Prentiss episode I am excited.

fletch said...

Looking forward to seeing her.

I worked w/Kate Jackson a number of years ago and she was a nutter then? Just look at those eyes! She could play the new female phycho! Or Dr. Laura as a brunette! Hilarious!

jacqui said...

I wonder if we'll get to see more of her during this upcoming season. I mean, with the storyline they brought up on the finale, you'd think she'd come up again at some point.
