SVU Recruits Paget Brewster for Season 14 Premiere -- Airing Opposite Criminal Minds

Fresh off her six-year run on CBS’ Criminal Minds, Paget Brewster is staying in law enforcement mode with a juicy role in the Season 14 premiere of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU — which, it so happens, will air opposite Criminal Minds‘ own season opener. Fancy that.

    Paget Brewster is not why I watched Criminal Minds. I watch it because I like FBI related shows. Paget was an okay actress…nothing out of the ordinary. Granted, she was a good agent on the show, but lets face it, thats the only thing that she’s got. She doesn’t have good looks by any means and she’s 43 which could be a good excuse for her unattractivness. She just looks like the normal brunette that you see everyday, except for her hidious nose. Maybe she could be somewhat pretty if she got a nose job. All the money she has and she can’t get her nose fixed… that’s pathetic. She’s not married and has no children, which can’t say much for her future. Lately, the only thing she’s been doing is seeking guest roles on shows, which is super dumpy, along with the fact that she was a main character in a show before and she dumped all of the luck that she had on Criminal Minds, which provided her a bug break. She isn’t very well known the way some actors and actresses are, which means that she can only try during pilot season, but if her pilot doesn’t get accepted, then she might as well drop her acting career and work at McDonalds…
