CRIMINAL MINDS: CASTING NEWS FOR "WASHINGTON FIELD"
Washington Field Casting News: Eddie Cibrian and Teri Polo have been tapped to play husband and wife on Washington Field, CBS' drama pilot from Criminal Minds boss Ed Bernero and revolving around an elite team of globe-trotting FBI experts. Think Super Friends, but minus the annoying purple monkey.
Cibrian's character, Tommy, is the response team's coordinator and a hazmat expert, says the Hollywood Reporter, while Polo will play Amanda, a medical forensics whiz.
Cibrian's previous TV credits include guest spots on, well, virtually every ABC series produced in the past three years (but most recently, Ugly Betty).
Polo, best known for playing opposite Ben Stiller in the Meet the Parents pics, recently guested on TV's Ghost Whisperer and before that costarred on David E. Kelley's short-lived The Wedding Bells.
