Exclusive: Adrianne Palicki Lands Killer Criminal Minds Role

In her first gig since the swift cancellation of the praised Fox drama Lone Star, Adrianne Palicki has signed on to guest-star in an episode of Criminal Minds that pays homage to Oliver Stone’s seminal criminal satire Natural Born Killers.

Palicki will play Syd, a tough, irreverent and sexually manipulative lunatic who sets out on a cross country killing spree with her badass sociopath husband Ray (played by The Black Donnellys‘ Jonathan Tucker). Like Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis’ characters in Killers, Syd and Ray were both victims of childhood abuse.

Palicki’s episode is slated to air January 19.

    I think that this storyline is in poor taste and only hope that is doesn’t run in April. The movie being paid homage was also the movie paid homage to by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold when they carried out their massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. Even being over ten years later, it isn’t a good move on the part of Criminal Minds writers. I am an avid watcher of this show and have relished storylines; however, I am not sure I can watch this one.

    Pretty sure it probably won’t air in April since the story says that it’s set to air on January 19th.
