Criminal Minds Spinoff Pilot Adds Walking Dead's Tyler James Williams

The new Criminal Minds team is growing, with the addition of Tyler James Williams.

Our sister site Deadline reports that the Walking Dead actor has joined the long-running CBS procedural’s latest planted spinoff pilot in the role of Monty, a tech analyst who stays at home to liaison with the victims’ families while the rest of the BAU team trots the globe, tending to the crises of Americans abroad.

Previously, CSI: NY vet Gary Sinise was cast as team leader Jack Garrett. Penned by Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer, the pilot will air as a springtime episode of the mother series.

Williams’ TV credits also include Go On and Everybody Hates Chris.
