Scoop: Criminal Minds Hires Drop Dead Diva Boss Man Josh Stamberg

Josh Stamberg, whose Drop Dead Diva boss man discovered he had a long-lost kid, will be dealt a whole lot more family drama when he visits Criminal Minds.

TVLine has learned that Stamberg will guest-star on the CBS crime drama in Season 8′s third episode, “Through the Looking Glass,” as the father of a desperate family that has been abducted.

  • Well, at least he’s not the unsub? Or at least, I hope not. I’m sick of seeing all these unsubs being revealed five minutes into the episode. I liked when they revealed the unsub five minutes before an episode ended.

    But I’ve seen Josh in a couple of other roles so I hope I’m not disappointed.

    • this isnt a mystery show, its about human psychology. the idea is to display why these guys go off the deep end and kill people. plus it sets it apart from all the other cop shows out there

      • I know, right? It really makes me mad people who get pissy about revealing the unsub in Criminal Minds. Like that matters. It’s about how their minds work, how the psycho/ill they are. It makes me wonder how many people who watch the show actually *get* it.

  • Father of a desperate family? Or a desperate father of a family who was abducted? ;-)

    • Yes, I’m curious, desperately, myself. :) Not the best sentence structure or punctuation there. Not to mention the whole that/who thing…. I guess we’ll have to watch episode three to figure it out.

  • This at least the second CM episode that has the same title as a LOST ep…Tabula Rasa being the other.

  • Glad to see him working… Drop Dead Diva is a fun show, however, he is under-used :(
