Criminal Minds Scoop: Big Love's Jeanne Tripplehorn Joins Cast as a Series Regular

Jeanne Tripplehorn Criminal MindsCriminal Minds has big love for Jeanne Tripplehorn — the venerable CBS procedural has tapped the actress to join the cast as a series regular.

Tripplehorn, who fills the void left by longtime castmember Paget Brewster, will play “a new profiler,” confirms Minds exec producer Erica Messer. “Her character will be introduced in the [Season 8] premiere.”

Tripplehorn is coming off of a five-year run on HBO’s Big Love. She recently veered into comedic territory via a multi-episode arc as Dermot Mulroney’s manipulative ex-wife on New Girl.

    Sounds like a good fit to me.

    • Criminal Minds Fan says:

      Don’t like her character….too much like Dr. Reed (sp?). I do love me some Dr. Reid…quirky, but lovable. She’s just annoying! That’s why I hated that Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior…all the characters were know it alls and too aggressive. Prentiss, please come back!!!

      • sally says:

        Completely agree

      • Katherine says:

        PLease, please, please bring Paget Brewster back to Criminal Minds. I am sorry, but Jeane Triplehorn just doesn’t cut it. Paget’s character of Emily was a type “A” & trying to replace Emily with Triplehorn’s character is like trying to replace cayenne pepper in a recipe with vanilla flavoring. It just doesn’t work.

  2. Michelle says:

    I’d rather have Paget back but I don’t see that happening after the way she and A.J. were treated. CBS never made it right; their loss.

    • tripoli says:

      Get over it already. You got Cook back and Brewster decided to leave of her own accord this time.

      • JJ looks hotter since she came back too says:

        I’m with tripoli on this one. How they were treated wasn’t a freaking tragedy it was just show business. And I’d guess they’re both happy with how things turned out.

  3. I don’t HATE this news… I’ll still miss Paget though. :(

  4. Allyse says:

    I like her. Nice addition to the team, but I think it’s too soon…

  5. Didn’t they say they wouldn’t bring another profiler to replace Prentiss? Things change fast.

    • Saint Alicia says:

      IKR?? Didn’t Messer JUST say in another interview (less than a week ago?) they were going to hold off adding another profiler (at least until later in the season)? I know they shill a lot of BS, but come on!

      • Jamie says:

        Sometimes an opportunity comes along that you can’t pass up. Maybe their intention was to wait but then they had a chance to bring in a talented actress so they took it. I am no fan of CBS or the producers of this show by any means but I’m giving them a pass on this one. Sometimes things happen that you can’t plan for.

        • Delia says:

          according to Tripplehorn she is ‘in’ since april. The can’t pass up I understand but not the interview a week ago that was planned.

          • Saint Alicia says:

            There we go. One could have argued that maybe this was a case of the left hand not knowing what the right is doing (even though Messer is SHOWRUNNER after all). But then there’s the precedence of Messer willfully misleading viewers in the past, and this seems like par for the course. Really, how can tptb “suddenly decide” to add a new character then audition/screen test/whatever and hire an actress in a week? Obviously when it comes to being honest/up-front they just have no f*cks to give.

          • richard alvarado says:

            Hated her in Waterworld & The Firm. Counted almost 30 other actresses who are younger, even some who are older than her and better looking with better notoriety factor. How about bringing back Edward Allen Bernero. Erica Messer’s killing this show better than Robert Patrick and Ted McGinley killed X-Files & Happy Days!

      • goodfella says:

        They planned on waiting…But CBS asked to replace Paget character…So they had to listen…

    • Elyse says:

      thats what i read also.

  6. Carrie says:

    Good choice! I haven’t watched since Mandy Patinkan left. I will watch now.

    • Tenney says:

      I was so happy with Mandy Patinkin left. There was something so smug about him that I almost couldn’t bear to watch it. I love Joe Mantegna. I think the chemistry of the team is so much better with him than Mandy.

      • Ashley says:

        I completely agree. I did like Gideon’s character but I thought the show focused more on him than the whole team. Now the show focuses more on the team and Rossi is much more caring and involved with the team. Gideon never went out with the team for fun.

        • Dallas says:

          ^THIS! When Patinkin was on the show was all about him. He was the super profiler and everyone else just followed him around. Once he left the other characteres had a chance to step up and develop more. It became a true team. I was glad Patinkin decided to leave.

    • Shane says:

      Wow, you’ve really missed out. Joe Mantegna is a great actor and his character was such a wonderful addition to the show. Don’t get me wrong, I like Patinkan as an actor, but I think Mantegna is a better fit with the rest of the team.

  7. Lo says:

    This is an interesting casting choice, she is definitely a talented actress. It will be nice to see an older woman on the team, though I’m guessing when they say “new”, it doesn’t mean green. Hopefully they’ll bring her character in as a seasoned profiler from a different unit.

  8. Chelsea says:

    So, Erica Messer’s thing about wanting to wait a while before they replace Paget Brewster is out the window, huh? I don’t mind Jeanne Tripplehorn, and I’m glad they aren’t replacing Prentiss with someone less well-suited (shall we say) than Brewster. Good luck to Jeanne; may she fare better than Rachel Nichols.

  9. Jules says:

    I’m kind of wishing no one was filling the Prentiss void, except Paget herself obviously. I guess it’s okay but I hope the crew still at least mentions their old friend Emily every so often.

  10. Oh, wow. I didn’t see that one coming. I hope she’s less serious than Barb was… someone more spirituous and fun! A la Sela Ward in CSI:NY. Prentiss lacked a bit of personality, I hope the new character has a lot of it. Like a female Rossi of sorts. CM is my favorite show. I’m always looking forward to changes, I hope this one’s for the best.

  11. Cody says:

    The reason there’s someone new is because CBS wanted a new series regular to replace paget and since CBS has more power over messer, she had to replace her even though she didn’t want to.

  12. Debra says:

    I didn’t want a new character.Why did they have to make her a profiler.
    The show doesn’t do enough profiling for the profilers they have already.
    If MGG comes back I fully expect to see Reid, yet again, shoved in the background.
    Reid is, after all, the least favorite character of Erica MESSer,the SHOW RUINER
    I also expect them to make her look good at the expense of the Reid,just like they did with JJ.
    Some fans were lead to believe that bc she was new to profiling JJ would be turning to Reid for advice.That never happened.
    She was constantly being shown as this awesome profiler.
    She was able to profile as well or in some cases(Reid) better than the seasoned profilers.
    Not to mention the fact that they’ve turned her into Sigourney Weaver aka Xena warrior princess.

    • Pissed Off says:

      I completely agree with everything you just said here, Debra.

    • Maria says:

      She may not have been trained as a profiler but she worked directly with them and sat in all of their meetings. It’s not like JJ was brand new to this type of thing. She has had a LOT of informal training over the years.

      • Debra says:

        Sorry Maria I’m not buying it.I’m not saying they should have made JJ a complete novice when it comes to being a profiler.I agree those things you mention certainly gave JJ a heads up.
        However those things don’t take the place of years of experience in being an actual profiler
        Therefore I stand by my assertion that it is ridiculous that they are writing her like she’s had years of experience in the science of profiling,instead of the newbie she is.

  13. tahina says:

    I still remember her from Basic Instinct and she was very good. I just started watching CM this year, its a good show and not yet attached to any of the characters, so I guess JT will be great. :)

  14. EDS says:

    Have they re-signed Matthew Gray Gubler yet?

  15. Selek says:

    CBS, where popular, former 90’s actors go to die.

    • tripoli says:

      Seriously? Did you miss the part about the 5 year run on Big Love?

      • Kendall Funk says:

        You mean the show where she played the matronly head of a polygamist family? Or the roles from about 20 years ago that everyone seems to look fondly on? Is is not a drama only show. There is some action in it as well… Always has been. And sorry folks, I can’t see her running around with a gun chasing bad guys. she would be better in the Strauss character and not as a profiler.

        • DJ says:

          First, maybe you should actually see her in action before you determine what she can and can’t do.
          Second, hardly anybody on this show runs around chasing bad guys. 75% of the show is the group standing in front of a whiteboard discussing theories. I’m pretty sure she can handle that.

  16. Kel says:

    I’ll still miss Paget but I love Jeanne Tripplehorn, so it’s a double edged sword for me.

    • MIchael says:

      I love Jeanne Tripplehorn. Period. Emily was my favorite character, but I’m actually extremely excited about JT coming aboard. Unless she proves me wrong, this switch is pretty much a wash for me.

  17. Pissed Off says:

    Nothing against the actress, but we didn’t need a new character thrown in the mix, especially in the first episode. Most fans have been screaming that we don’t want a replacement, especially when the team has had an extra profiler since JJ became one and Prentiss came back. With her gone, they’re back to the usual number. Furthermore, the writers/showruiner (not a misspelling) weren’t doing a good job of giving balanced screen time to all of the cast last season, so we were hoping that having one less cast member would help the writers alleviate, or at least work on and make improvements in that area. Instead of worrying about filling the void for Prentiss, how about CBS/CM worry about filling the void for Reid first. Remember when he was a main character? Since Erica Messer (showruiner) took over, we’ve been getting increasingly used to disappointment, so we shouldn’t even be surprised, regardless of whether this was her choice or CBS’s. The question now is, will I and the other fans who feel the way I do, even bother to watch?

    • ths_smith says:

      Why of course fans are going to tune in…..Too much whining on these posts. If you don’t like it, don’t watch. New viewers will watch it for you….

      • Dee Lyter says:

        Yeah, but I bet not as many. While breathing life into an old show is a good thing, doing it in a way that will cause the “base” to look elsewhere is not a good strategy. There is a lot of programming for these viewers to choose and once gone they never come back. And, let’s face it, JT is probably on fewer viewers “must see” list.

    • kaite says:

      I like her, I’m not hating this news. I just wish 1. They waited a few episodes like they did with Rossi, 2. They didn’t replace Paget at all.

      When Emily and JJ left the first time, JJ wasn’t even a profiler. So when Rachel Nichol’s character came on they still had 5 profilers. Now JJ us a profiler, we really don’t need to fill her spot.

      Seeing as they’re going to do it anyways, I’m pleased with an established actress (because we know they’re trying to have the success of Joe Mantegna and not another Seaverbomb) and hope it transitions smoothly like prior additions.

  18. The8treGirl says:

    I’ve said this before and will say it again… after the first year or so of any series, most fans have a better grasp of who the characters they truly care about are as people than the writers (for the most part) and, definitely, the show runners (or ruiners as Pissed off says).

    I mean, I know the characters I watch are not REAL people – I’m not delusional, just a fan – but when you take an hour out of a really busy and demanding life to watch a show in which you have no investment, other than enjoying the stories and the people, you really care about what happens in the that hour to those people. And not just that hour, but last week’s hour and next week’s hour. And you really begin to know what is true and real. And you hate forced and fake. And you especially hate when a character you particularly like and enjoy leaves the show, even if the actor says they want to go, especially when the leaving is handled badly. And maybe you hate it even more when a character – to wit, Dr Reid – is still part of the show, but in the same sort of way that wallpaper and office supplies are part of the show, although probably with better lighting.

    • Realist says:

      Better grasp of the characters than the writters? Uh…full of yourself much? I suppose next you’re going to tell Stephen King how to write horror since he can’t possibly understand it like you do. Look, they are CHARACTERS. They are what ever their creators want them to be and yes, sometimes that is different than what others want. You and other viewers project your wants, desires, and dreams on to them and then get upset when the writers don’t see things your way. I’ve been there…it’s disappointing…but I certainly don’t think it’s wrong because the writers aren’t doing what I want them to do.

      • hotchfan says:

        Yes, longtime fans have a better grasp of the characters than the current writers, most of whom have only been here for two seasons. That’s when all the changes to the characters began taking place. I have never been impressed by Jeanne Tripplehorn and this announcement proves once again that you can’t trust anything that Erica Messer says. She has killed the show I used to love.

  19. Dee Lyter says:

    First… Don’t hate me for what I am about to say… It’s just my opinion. I guess CBS is looking to pull in advertising dollars from Silver Centrum, Viagra and every other product aimed at the 50+ set. I’ve seen JT in a few things, and she’s fine I guess, but not quite a draw for the coveted demographic. The cast is skewing a bit to old for me now, if not in fact then in perception. I think I’m out, it is now out of my season pass. I will manually record the first two episodes to give it a chance, in case I am wrong.

    On what some of the above have said about the Reid character. My guess this news does not bode well for the character’s return. No mention of where the actor stands on renegotiations. Usually news is issued like this to temper bad news that is about to come.

    If you look at the cover art for the DVD/digital download, you can get a sense about how the Reid character has moved from the front burner to back over the seasons. Not sure I disagree, the Reid character became almost too quirky to the point it was unbelievable.

    • Aile says:

      Actually, the writers all think MGG is going to come back to the show. Negotiations can take a long time, it’s far from unusual.
      But if there’s a character that “became almost too quirky to the point it was unbelievable”, it’s Garcia, not Reid.

    • Realist says:

      Well, considering the #1 scripted show on Television (NCIS) is lead by a man in his 50’s I don’t think CBS is too worried about it. And seriously, it’s not as if this show is set in a nursing home or anything. There is plenty of action and excitement and the cast (IMO) is still full of some good looking people.

      • Kendall Funk says:

        @realist…And yet the shows with a younger demo command more advertising $$ than the show with a 50 year old man at the helm. Always been an issue with CBS that shows with lower viewership but a bigger 18-35 demo bring in bigger bucks then their most watched series. if that demo in general wasnt a big deal then it wouldn’t be broken out and touted the way it is.

        • realist says:

          Oh I understand demos. 18-49 is the most desired demo and the main number networks look at to determine if a show is a success. My point is, even just looking at the 18-49 demo NCIS is a big success and still beats out most other scripted shows. Also, Person of Interest is lead by two main actors who are not young 20 somethings and that show did very well in the 18-49 demo and saw it’s ratings increase throughout the year. Dee is speculating that the show will not do well because they added an older actress and I was mearly pointing out that there are other shows on the air right now with older actors and actresses that are doing quite well (even in the 18-49 demo).

        • Lauren Reynolds is Dead says:

          So wait…are you trying to say that young people will only watch shows that have young people in them? Because I think the laughably pathetic demo numbers for EVERY single show on the CW network will prove that theory wrong quite easily.

  20. Ella says:

    I actually like Tripplehorn a lot but still really going to miss Paget. Not sure the show will be the same, nor survive another season. There is no replacement for Emily Prentiss.

  21. Amaia says:

    I still believe they didn’t need anyone to replace Paget, just give more minutes to other actors from the cast. Anyway, good luck to her, it’s not easy to replace a character like Prentiss.

  22. They are working in a busy agency, where many cases come across their desks. You have to look at it as a real company. Of course they would need to find a replacement. I am hoping she is a seasoned profiler, I lost interest inthe show after the introduction of the Rachel Nichols character. I found her character very polarizing and she fell on the wrong side for me. Even her back story irked me.
    Jeanne is a fantastic actress. I wish her all the best in this role and may tune in to see how she fairs. It is nice to see the 3 main ladies from Big Love back on the box.
    With Ginnifer in OUAT and Chloe giving an amazing performace in “Hit and Miss” as well. (Her accent in that show I am getting used to now, but you can feel her emotion without her even saying a word) I am unsure if it has aired in the states yet, I am guessing it will be airing on cable when it does. As it is quite a sight seeing her penis flap about in each episode, not something the networks are really going to show.

  23. Jenna says:

    Well d*mn. Just when I thought I could finally give up this show they go and pull me back in.

    • Linda Lender says:

      I’ve been a fan since the beginning and while each season has had it’s own path, one thing I noticed in season 7 is all the personal elements (i.e. Beth, Rossi’s ex, JJ/Will, Garcia/Kevin) that are being written in. Seems the writing is getting off track as to whether this is a criminal behavior series or prime time soap opera. Now with their intention of trying to make us believe Rossi and Strauss have been together for a long time…..can’t even imagine. They’ve made it seem as though Rossi has absolutely no respect for Strauss, no mention or indication of him being there for her during her alcohol issues. I had hoped he was smarter than to get involved with a superior. I really hope Reid comes back.

  24. Bill says:

    Producers Lie that’s what there good at . I don’t think a producer could ever give an honest answer they dont know how .

  25. Renee says:

    Well…I would have preferred they waited at least 10 episodes before introducting a new character, but when the network tells you to do something you don’t argue I guess. But after the last fiasco you would think they would approach another cast addition all little more cautiously.

    • Ronnie says:

      sorry, but that sounds a bit like boss says ‘jump out the window’ and employee does. I bet there is a lot going on behind closed doors. Not surprisingly, just strange parts of it is brought to the public and I don’t think it helps. And I mean the timeline – who says what when and why. I gonna miss Paget dearly and wish Tripplehorn good luck.

  26. greysfan says:

    I like the idea. Good pick. She is not Paget but at least its a known name.

  27. Shallu says:

    What about Matthew Gray Gubler’s contract? Is it renewed? And I really, really hope he isn’t shoved in the background again.

  28. Stacey says:

    Never liked her on Big Love, hated her on New Girl – doesn’t bode well for what I’ll think of her on Criminal Minds. If they don’t resign MGG then I think I may just have to be out.

  29. I’m ok with this, if she’s used correctly.

    I’ve found the past couple of seasons to be a struggle (let’s be honest, will the show EVER top the 100th episode with Hotch Vs The Reaper? That was gripping) but I liked the approach this season with more personal time, same with CSI Vegas.
    However, I do think that Garcia has now gone from “Abby wannabe” to some ridiculous level where she is practically The Architect in what she can do at that desk, which is more than a tad unrealistic IMO.
    Reid has always been low on my list of favourites as well, he’s basically the shows version of Data.

    All I want from the next series is more of Morgan beating the crap out of bad guys. Given how harrowing some of the storylines are (can we PLEASE cut back on the ones harming kids?) I think we can probably all agree it’s very therapeutic when we see the game kick the crap out of the villains, even if it wouldn’t be done in real life.
    Also, give us at least one seen with Mantegna crooning a Dean Martin song, come on!

  30. Maribelle says:

    I don’t mind Jeanne’s joining, until Matthew stays in the show.
    No Reid no no sense to watch it.:D

    • Linda says:

      I just hope this show continues to be larger than any one character. As with all shows, actors will continue to choose other paths for their own reasons. Only out-of-the-box writing and intuitive casting will keep it going….keep it believable, don’t throw scenes in just for the shock value. CM is, or should be, above that.

  31. Ashley says:

    While I’m not against this, I would have rather they waited to replace Paget to see if they actually needed to. Unless there was a huge void that demanded a new character, they shouldn’t have added one. I wish they would have just focused a little bit more on the characters they already have!

  32. Damhill says:

    Don’t think I’ll like her :(

    • Jean says:

      I’ve seen a couple of episodes with JT and I do not like her at all. She doesn’t seem to fit in with the cast at all. I know she’s new and all of that, but I just don’t think her character will mesh with all of them like Prentiss did. CBS – please get rid of Jeanne Tripplehorn and while you’re at it get rid of Erica Messer too cuz they’re both gonna kill my favorite show.

  33. racbec says:

    I’ll watch as long as Reid is on the show. I hope they turn the focus back on the team and profiling, rather than on the unsubs. Is it too much to ask for intelligently written stories and characters?

  34. Lauren says:

    I’m gonna leave my judgement till I see her, I didn’t like that they replaced Elle, but I ended up loving Emily, and I love Rossi even though he replaced Gideon so I’m going to see how this character goes before I cast my vote on if she should stay or not.

  35. Angela says:

    I’m not going to make any snap judgments for or against the new character until I see her in action. But, I have no problem with the idea of a new person. I’d rather have Prentiss, but I don’t blame Paget one bit. Having a new woman means that we’re not just down to only two females, one of whom doesn’t really interact with the rest of the cast that much, except over the phone. I like the ratio of male to female to be nearly equal. But, again, I’ll have to see the character to see if I like her personally.

    Oh, and I *liked* Seaver. The aspect of her being a cadet was a bad choice, but her as a person? I liked her a lot, and wished it could have been 4 women. Hopefully I’ll feel the same way about this new character.

    Without any specifics on the character, I can only hope for three things. That I like her, that the show NEVER ships her with any of the team members (no ships between team members ever), and that she has meaningful platonic relationships with her female teammates after a time. With the male ones, too. But, one issue I had with this past season is that even though we got all of the women back, they hardly shared any interaction that showed they had a strong friendship.

  36. Lauren Reynolds is Dead says:

    I was going to give up watching the show after Paget left but this decision to bring in JT actually has me interested again. I guess I will hang around for the first couple of episodes to see how it goes.

  37. Charlotte says:

    Honestly? I’m excited about the casting choice of Jeanne Tripplehorn to replace Paget Brewster. The question is whether showrunner Erica Messer is up for the challenge or will we see the continued focus on weak characters like JJ, Garcia and those horrible guest stars (taking up all the screentime from the team) so prominent in season 7 which weakened the show. I think EM is so clueless about what made the show a cult favorite. The focus should get back to Hotch, Morgan, Jeanne’s character, Dr. Reid and Rossi in season 8 but unfortunately the EP is too enveloped by her own sentimentality like the unwise statements that Paget will be back as a guest star in season 8. I mean, just move on and act like a professional. It’s over. The fact is that season 6 finished strong without JJ for most of the season and then without Prentiss at the end. Their returns among other things (like focusing on depraved unsubs) dragged down the show. Just look at the ratings and the demo for season 7 compared to season 6 which was an amazing season despite complaints to the contrary. Again, just look at the ratings/demo.

  38. smoore says:

    A very talented actress, I think she will fit in well with the rest of the Criminal Minds cast. I’m glad they went with an established actress with a built in fan base, very smart. Can’t wait for the seaon premier now.

  39. Bames Jond says:

    I agree with several comments above, Reid needs to be out of the background already.

  40. Nick says:

    Bleh I don’t really care. I was hoping that they wouldn’t do any replacements or new additions this season, but Jeanne is pretty talented. I just hope that not all of Season 8 will be about her, I’d like to see some more character development of other characters.

  41. Diane Kiszonas says:

    Did Paget want to leave Criminal Minds?
    Question by teddybear

  42. Brianna says:

    I don’t know how i feel about this new profiler. Personally I wondered if they should have looked at Wendy Mekkena who played as Dr. Rachel Cranston in NCIS. She would have been qualified “in the real life world.”

  43. di says:

    all I have to say on the subject is that Agent Spencer Reid had better not “not be included” on this show, I’m so dissapointed that Emily left & that they(CBS) are replacing her so soon, I would have loved to see shows where the BAU team had to work with the CIA operatives, such as Paget & Sebastian Roache, now that would make for dynomite programming! Hated that Patinkin left, I LOVED Gideon but Joe Mantegna is a wonderful fit, don’t think they will strike lightning again, it all seems too rushed to me.

  44. Libby says:

    I’m waiting until Season 8 begins to pass judgement on Jeanne but I really hope they don’t push older characters into the background (Reid for one) they never cleared up his Season 6 storyline, and they kind of left it at a loose end. I will watch the show no matter what but I think they may be making a mistake bringing in a new character so soon, and pushing characters with unfinished storylines into the background, where they say a few lines and disappear for the rest of the episode. As long as Morgan and Reid mostly don’t get pushed away by this new character I will enjoy this season. May not be the best but I am actually leaving my mind open and staying positive. I am now looking forward to Season 8.

  45. mary says:

    I can’ t believe anyone actually thinks Those people really care what We think. I’m talking about everyone involved including the Actors.

  46. Barbara Baum says:

    Well, watched the show and Jeanne is like watching paint dry. Horrible choice for this show. They should have waited a while. Aren’t there any red haired actresses out there, why always blond or brunette?

    • Kelley says:

      I couldn’t have said it better. I think I described her to someone this morning as having all of the personality of a dead fish.

  47. Linda says:

    At least watching paint dry has some color. Blake is a blank canvas.

    Criminal minds is one of my favorite shows, I can watch it over and over. HOWEVER do not like this new actress, Jeanne, you sure made a mistake by adding her to the cast. I will miss the cast but when a show is ruined I have to say so long.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

    Not liking the new character….she does not fit in. If they cant get Brewster back, then maybe a male character for a change??

      I agree completely. She isn’t adding anything to the team. If this is the best they can do, leave the position open.
