Criminal Minds: I think April Webster, Scott David and Erica Silverman, pictured with Scott in the production office of Criminal Minds, did their best job ever casting for the show this season. I have some suggestions of guest stars I would like to see on Criminal Minds in season five. Josh Malina, Justine Bateman, to name a few. What are your suggestions?


hotchnerprentiss said...

I've said this every season but I would like to see Ed B. in an episode.

monica said...

Now that Chris Noth is off of LOCI he would be a great guest star. What an awesome unsub he would make. Anyone agree with me?

Judy said...

Love the idea of Noth and would like to add a few names to the list: Matthew Perry and Alicia Witt.

Jenn said...

I'd love to see Jenna Elfman guest star! After seeing Minimal Loss, I've lot to see the chemistry between a character she plays and Thomas Gibson's 'Hotch'. Or Victoria Rowell up against Shemar Moore. Having that (already established) chemistry has really paid off a few times!

Jenn said...

I meant "I'd love" instead of "I've lot". It usually helps when I put in the correct words, huh?

MarKill said...

Joe Perry: Aerosmith would be really cool
Alan Rickman: I just love him
Arnold Vosloo: Just watch The Mummy
Rutger Hauer: Always liked his acting work....
Tygo Gernandt Dutch moviestar who I really like

and me or my son LOL j/k

DianeLDJ said...

Lets seeee.

Joe Perry(Yes he can act)
Dylan Walsh
Famke Jannssen
Liam Neeson
Peta Wilson

Kasey said...

I would LOVE to see Stargate's Michael Shanks guest star. He is a great actor who can play good guys (like Daniel Jackson)and bad guys equally.

He guest starred in a 4 episode arc of Burn Notice where he turned an over the top psychotic in the first episode to a tragic,sympathetic anti-hero in the last episode.

I always pictured him playing Tobias, since he can do a DID storyline. I would love to see him working with Reid(who reminds me of a a young Daniel Jackson). That would be a great episode for me.

Anonymous said...

Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame. He has said he loves the show and watches it religiously.

mona said...

The show has attracted some really great actors/actresses this season. The child actors have been totally awesome.

I would like Jane Lynch back. She is always great as Reid's mom. Kevin Kline would be interesting.

Anonymous said...

I'd have to agree with Rutger Haur. He's so creepy awesome.

Also, as a HEROES fan, I'd like to see some of our fallen, David Anders and Brea Grant.

Blackpanther said...

Tyne Daly. Because she brings the awesome in everything she's in. And Alan Tudyk.

And i'm pretty sure i'd be fine with whatever guest stars come one the show. All of the guest starts on this show have been perfectly picked.

Lori said...

Apparently Ringo Starr is a fan of the show, a cameo with him would be great (I don't know if he acts) and a Beetle on our show would be so cool.

ivyhamster said...

Harry Hamblin
Matthew Perry
Alexis Bledel
Amanda Peet

Anonymous said...

Ringo Starr too!
Noah Wyle

morticia_addams said...

jared leto ;-)
to be honest...they made a good choice and i am sure they will continue to make a good one.

Lee Allport said...

Tim's favorite actor is Josh Malina and as you know he does not care about actors. LOL. So I vote for him as well. Not Justine Bateman, I'm just not a fan. Maybe Jason Bateman though. Adam Baldwin. :)


Lanna said...

I think Brent Spiner (Data on Star Trek) or Rutger Hauer would make fabulous guest cast. They both could be very creepy and devious unsubs.
Shannen Doherty would make a great female unsub as well.

And like Paget once said...Clive Owen...a girl can only dream ;o)

Anonymous said...

It would be so good if they did crossover with NCIS

Leslie said...

Ed Asner did such an awesome job on CSI New York last week. He'd be great as a 'retired' serial killer who can't help himself and returns to killing.

Hugh Jackman or Colin Farrell would be fun.

Anonymous said...

I'd like to see James Spader, Kevin McKidd, William Petersen.


Nagi said...

I think it would be super cool to have Jenna Elfman on, maybe playing a hardboiled detective or something. I think Matthew Perry would be good times. Famke Jannesen would be super awesome too, and I'd definitely have to throw my vote in for Alan Tudyk, because he can totally be good guy and bad guy all in one go. Who also does a surprisingly good bad guy is Josh Hartnett.

Also, Reid and Abby of NCIS need to have some good nerd time together, although I suspect Abby would hit it off better with Garcia.

AngelLeah said...

I would love to see a little cross over from NCIS and Criminal Minds. I think we need to get all those NCIS fans on the Criminal Minds bandwagon... so I will agree that Abby and Mark Harmon's Agent Gibbs should come over for a show.
How great would confrontation between Agent Hotchner and Gibbs be!?!?

Anonymous said...

I would love to see Helen Mirren (Simon Mirren's aunt) as a guest star. She's amazing!

Anonymous said...

I would love to see Robin Williams. The man is a terrific actor and I think, would make an amazing unsub.

I'm in agreement with an NCIS crossover, Gibbs vs Hotch, Abby vs Garcia or Reid, Reid vs Magee (my personal favorite) I just love geeks.

Shadow said...

I’d like to see reappearances of Michael Ironside as John, Eric Johnson as Sean and Jane Lynch as Diana.

A cross over with another crime series would be great, though I’m not sure which one to choose. NCIS would be great, but others could work, too.

As for guest stars, not necessarily unsubs though, I’d like to see:

Jill Hennessy (she would make a great unsub)
David Duchovny (madman, suspect, but not guilty)
Wings Hauser (great unsub)
Geraint Wyn Davies (cop, unsub, witness - not sure)
Morgan Weisser (cop, unsub, witness - not sure)
Michael Paré (cop)
David James Elliott (lawyer, prosecutor, or something alike, bonding with Hotch)

BlueCurl said...

Dean Winters
Noah Wyle
Enrique Marciano

Anonymous said...

I would love to see Alicia Silverston, Andrew McCarthy, James Spader or T.R. Knight if he is free next season.
I agree a NCIS cross-over would be great. I would love to see the interaction between the two teams. It would be great:)

jasperhale007 said...

William Peterson would be so amazing, but I love all the choices made this season.

Anonymous said...

how about someone not so named and expensive so we can keep all of our actors.

babruin said...

If Kate Jackson could be Emily's Mom, Jacklyn Smith would make a great Mom for Hotch and Farrah Fawcett for JJ.

Erin said...

I'd love to see Steve Valentine and Jay Baruchel.

geli said...

Alexander Siddig , but not as an unsub, but a local cop or agent.

Eleonor said...

I really do not care which guest stars come to the show. I watch CM because of it's great cast members, I want them all back! So CBS or powers that your money and just bring our whole team back!!!!

ssbailey said...

So lot's of great suggestions in the comments already, but I have to say that I'd love to see Jason Wiles from Ed B.'s old show "Third Watch" or Molly Price from that same show. Jason Dohring would be fantastic as well. :) And I know Skipp Sudduth has already been on, but I would love to see him reprise his role of Detective Gordinski.

Anonymous said...

Sasha Alexander as a love interest for one of the team would be lovely! :)

MeganT said...

I know this may sound strange but I think Stephen Colbert would make a great serial killer. Seriously, I'd like to see him run wild with it. I'm not sure why, but I've thought this for a few months now.

randy travis, meat lofe,michael, ringo starr

Anonymous said...

I think Ray Liotta and Anthony Hopkins would be great to see

DianeDJ said...

You know who ALSO needs a job? Chris Potter. ;)

Anonymous said...

Gregg Henry, Chloe Webb, Della Reese, Edward James Olmos, Candice Bergen, Rick Springfield, Patrick McKenna, David Tennant.

Anonymous said...

David Franklin and Gigi Edgley from *Farscape*; also Wayne Pygram. Alessandro Juliani from *Battlestar Galactica*. Amber Bensom from *Buffy*. And it would be nice to see Meta Golding come back once or twice, too.

--Cal from LJ

Anonymous said...

Huh, Stephen Colbert? Yeah, I think that might be interesting.

Ripley said...

Gabriel Byrne, or Anthony Hopkins please! ☺

DianeDJ said...

Gabriel Byrne! Now that is some I would LOVE to see!

Anonymous said...

If any of our 7 wonderful cast members is let go next season, then it won't matter to me who the guest stars are, since I won't be watching the show any more.

If the entire cast is back for next season, then here's my wish list for next season or after:

Anton Yelchin (would love to find out what happens to the Nathan Harris character)

Michael Ironside (would like to find out more about his character, John(?), from Reid's Beltway Clean Cops meeting)

Kate Jackson (Prentiss' mom, but in a better story)

Jane Lynch (always wonderful to see her as Reid's mom)

Alexander Siddig (love it when actors from the Star Trek universe guest star; would be nice to see him playing someone British instead of Arab though)

Anonymous said...

Michael Redgrave was wonderful as the depraved bigot on LOCI a while ago. He is always a great guest star on episodic TV shows.

Brent Spiner is great at everything, maybe he could be a singer/axe murderer.


Anonymous said...

I totally love NCIS .... but "atmosphere" is totally different for my beloved Naval agents, vs my beloved BAU. I think Hotch and Rossi would be paralyzed with shock at the Tony / Ziva banter, or Gibbs smacking people on the head.

On that note:
Scott Bakula
Michael T. Weiss
Richard Dean Anderson

(what can I say... I am old lol )

gubegirl said...

Wow! What a question! Boggles the mind to think of some of these wonders: James Spader would be great; Noah Wyle-very interesting, too nice to be an unsub tho'; Richard Dean Anderson -he could go either way, I'll bet.

But my personal favorite would be Jimmy Smits. Albeit for the $, he would make an amazing unsub if he was nearly as devious and nasty as the character Miguel he played in "Dexter" last season. But he could be the wonderful, principled good cop/agent like Bobby Simone that he played in "NYPD Blue", back in the 90's.

*Sigh* yes, Jimmy has my vote. I would contribute for that cause... just tell me where to send the money...Anything to see that man on TV again soon...

elle said...

I know I've said this before but I would love to see Liza Lapira as a lawyer in a courtroom type episode.

Blümchen said...

Michael T. Weiss
Lance Henriksen
David Tennent, love this doctor

Rick Young aka Flea Bag!!! yahhh

mrsericdelko said...

I'd love to see Robert LaSardo appear on Criminal Minds. He's appeared on Nip/Tuck and General Hospital. He's an amazing actor and I think he'd make a great unsub!

Mira said...

Like someone has said before me: "I don't really care who's on Criminal Minds next season, if one of the cast members is not returning for a full season."

Especially when they lose the heart and soul of the show! Losing the heart and soul would mean no more Criminal Minds for me. And we all know who the heart and soul of the show is ;)

And to me it doesn't matter who's gonna appear on the show. Just as long as they keep telling great stories and put on an amazing show on television, the names and people behind it are of less interest to me.

A bigger name or sexier face doesn't always bring the quality we all so want and love of Criminal Minds.

Sandra said...

David Strathairn
David Morse
and a beautiful woman for Hotch .-))

Andy said...

Hello nice this idea to ask that player would have for the season 5. I would say a crossover with NCIS or bones. Otherwise Steve Valentine, jeffrey dean morgan or Chris Noth .

ToonEy said...

Sir Anthony Hopkins
Michael C. Hall (just to see what he'd be like as a really crazy, evil serial killer instead of a heroic/vigilante one)
Alan Rickman
Can't think of others but I'm sure there are more... :P

Debbie said...

Gosh, lots of good suggestions so far...

Bobby Coleman, the young actor from Martin Child - he looks like a miniature MGG - or at least he did in that movie!

Victor Garber would be great, so would Rob Pattinson.

immertreu said...

Totally agree with the suggestions of Michael Shanks, Chris Potter, Mark Harmon and Gabriel Burn.

And how about Joe Flanigan? He could play an UnSub (charming in the beginning, going over the egde in the end), but I'd prefer to see him as an FBI agent or so, butting heads with Hotch or Morgan...

immertreu said...

Gabriel Byrne, of course... I apologize.

Oh, I want to see :

- Edward Furlong (amazing !)
- Gary Oldman
- Kristen Stewart (why not ? she a great actrice !)
- Thomas Dekker
- Anton Yelchin (always there psy hopital?!)
- Jackson Rathbone (interesting character and amazing actor !)
- Maube not, Frankie Muniz ?(freaky character lol)
- Jane Lynch (of course !)

And Robert Pattinson (Twilight effect ?)

Shadow said...

I agree that having back Anton Yelchin as Nathan Harris would be great, and someone else I’d like to see again is Gonzalo Menendez as Agent Josh Cramer from Baltimore.

Leanne said...

I agree with the Michael Shanks and Victor Garber comments and would add...

~ Wil Wheaton
~ Gary Cole
~ Fabian Forte (maybe playing the local cop they help out)
~ Colm Feore
~ Tim Mathesen
~ Lee Tergesen
~ Christopher Atkins

I would LOVE to see Sam Witwer (Smallville) as an Unsub!

ztivokreb said...

Chris Noth and Michael Shanks would be great!

Jasmine* said...

I don't have anyone in mind really i just wanna see the full original cast and I'll be FINE XD

nothing said...

... If I had to suggest some names, I would say : Mickael Shanks, Rory Cochrane, David Tennant (!! I'm sure he wil be amazing), maybe a little more of Jackson Rathbone (I wasn't expecting him to be so good) and Penelope's lover played by Nicholas Brendon too. Too bad Alex O'Laughlin's character died, he was amazing ~~

I'm sure I could find a lot more actors/actresses, but I'll stop there ! Anyway, casting were always amazing for the past seasons, so I just hope they will continue this way ~~

BlackNight said...

i would like to see in the neek season :

- C. Thomas Howell (if someone doesn't kill him at the end of season 4) :D

- Michael Shanks (Stargate)
- T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy)
- Michael C. Hall (Dexter)
- Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter)
- Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers, Life)
- Sarah Shahi (Life)

Anonymous said...

I agree with Michael Shanks and whoever said Ringo Starr. He'd be fun. I would also like to see Erik Paladino back .

Lugdivine said...

5 guest stars :
Torri Higginson => Stargate Atlantis
David Hewlett => Stargate Atlantis
Lena Heady => TSCC (Sarah Connor)
Richard Dean Anderson => SG-1
Matt Dallas => Kyle XY

Anonymous said...

John Douglas and/or Roy Hazelwood. They were founding members of the BAU and Hazelwood helped to create VICAP. I could just see Reid have another fanboy meltdown!

BlackNight said...

I would like to see a women played by Claudia Black, Keira Knightley or Charlize Theron, in love with Hotch.
But, she is sick woman and she is a serial killer.
She loves him so much that she tries to kill the women around of Hotch (like JJ, Emily, Haley).
Because in her mind, she want hotch for herself.


Shilla said...

the first, don't kill de Reaper
- Rutger Hauer
- Damian Lewis (spin off)
- Robert Patrick

and i dream about a crossover with House (i know that's impossible) :P

and of course a LadyKiller, thx blacknight but I said LadyKiller will try to kill men or women hurted Hotch :P

BlackNight said...

lol, men too ? Why not :D

But, i thinking about a loving story between Hotch and LadyKiller like this : at the beginning, everything ok, until we understand an unsub killing people around Hotch :D

People who have injured Hotch, in some way. Remember she is sick, so she can think that Strauss is a ennemy for Hotch. Or Haley who wants take away Jack, from his dad.

I think, Charlize Theron, will be a good choice to play "LadyKiller". :p

Anonymous said...

I would love to see Spencer with a sibling, a sister. It is possible seeing as his parents were seperated for many years.

Shilla said...

now, we are agree about LadyKiller :D

but please, don't catch her fast, she will kill (or try) one person by episode and Hotch become worry about his family

Ladykiller is sick but we are really crazy to imagine her

i hope to see Elle Greenaway, she will become crazy or not ? (Ladykiller tries to kill her too)
My Ladykiller looks Haley

Nita said...

Ok, don't laugh, but here is someone who is unknown and would fit a tight budget...only know his first name, but Colin from this season's Make me a Supermodel. He possibly could make a great, creepy fan of Reid's, trying to look like him and kill to get his attention.

Anonymous said...

I’m agree with AngelLeah. I would love to see a little cross over from NCIS and Criminal Minds. Mark Harmon and Thomas Gibson together it will be great. And a love story between Abby and Reid. But Jean Reno or Gaspard Ulliel for the french touch

Anonymous said...

First of all I want all the team back...
I would be pleased to see again:
Frankie Munoz (he was so good)
Jane Lynch
Anton Yelchin

New guests:

Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis (Bonnie & Clyde... )
Hugh Laurie
Daniel Radcliffe
Alan Rickmann
Helena Bonham Carter
Carmine Giovinazzo
Christina Ricci...

Ally Walker, Shawn Christian, Gregg Rainwater, Robert Davi, Judson Mills

i'd say Jared Leto.

Angel_The Original said...

Jenna Elfman would be cool. Also John M. Jackson as either cop or unsub. I'd prefer unsub as I have yet to see him in anything dark. Some people mentioned CM and NCIS cross over. Love that idea.

Noah Wyle (ER)
Molly Price (Third Watch)

Gillian Anderson (X-Files)
Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse)
Rachel Nichols (Alias, The Inside)
Victor Garber (Alias)
Michael Vartan (Alias)
James Marsters (Buffy, Angel)
Kevin Weisman (Alias)
Elisabeth Rohm (Law and Order, Angel)
Carl Lumbly (Alias)

It would also be neat to see Gregory Cruz (John Blackwolf), or Meta Golding (Jordan Todd)again.

Robyn Trent said...

I may be old fashioned but I am still a fan of the crossover, as long as folks don't over do and step too far out of their character. There are several FBI based shows on CBS and some carefully written interaction should prove both exciting and fun! I am going to think on it a bit and come up with some names as well.

Shilla said...

Why not a cross-over with "The Mentalist" ? We can to learn about their private life :P

Guest :
- Mandy Moore
- Whoopy Goldeberg
- Eliza Dushku
- David Tennant
- Seth Green
- Marc Blucas
- Matt Leblanc
- Marlon Wayans

and i hope really Damian Lewis will join the team (like a consultant or something) but not just once

Gabriela Spinola said...

Let's see...

- Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Two-Face... Cool unsub.)
- Danny Pino (Cold Case is almost dead, anyway...)
- Clive Owen (great actor)
- Rupert Grint (big fan of the show, and Harry Potter's movies are icredibly boring and have absolutely nothing to do with the books besides their title)
- Bobby Cannavalle (okay, let's see... Cold Case almost dead, and so is Cupid. Go kill some people, Saccardo.)
- Isaiah Washington (if he doesn't call anyone "queer" in the set, I don't see why not make him a special guest star)
- Jason Priestley (he doesn't have a good role in ages!)

MISa_Love said...

I'd love to see Sarah Wayne Callies! (Prison Break).
Beautiful and talented actress!

- Jensen Ackles

Jim Parsons would be a great guest star.

Ok, I love space operas. ^^
- Sean Gunn (He's already a freak in Gilmore Girls)

And crossovers with The mentalist or NCIS would be amazing !!!!

Abby said...

I think PAUL BETTANY makes a great unsub for a part 1 and part 2 of something really awesome story. He is really great in The Da Vinci Code.

There's also Cillian Murphy. Scarecrow from batman.

The guy that always says "Mr. Anderson" in the matrix

I think It would be cool if they had,ethier Brent spiner from
( TNG) but it would seem a little off since they had Jhonathen Frakes and Wil Wheaton on the show in the past. But also I think it would be real interesting if thay had Jimmy Fallon on the show. Would love to see him in the show. But any way this ain't the fith season any more
