Criminal Mindsrevolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) is a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high. He brings his own area of expertise to the table pinpointing predators' motivations and identifying their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.

In reality, Gubler, who was born and raised in Las Vegas, is very funny and charismatic. He has appeared in the feature films R.V. and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and is also an accomplished filmmaker. He started his day in Denver visiting several local radio stations. While on ALICE Radio he entertained listeners and took advantage of a hobby he's developed in between takes on the set of Criminal Minds. He drew a sketch of morning show host Howie!

Was Reid also born in Las Vegas (like MGG) or was just his mother in the hospital there? Just came to my mind, I may be wrong.
Thanks for the interview.
