TVLine Items: Criminal Minds Eyes Heroes Vet, Modern Family Star Visits Horror Story, and More

Jack Coleman’s TV dance card is looking mighty full.

In addition to dropping by The CW’s Vampire Diaries this fall as a slayer (and possible dad!), the Heroes alum will appear on Criminal Minds as someone far creepier than HRG.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Coleman will guest star on the CBS drama as Bill, a man who once held a young girl captive for seven years, and in an attempt to recreate a perceived connection with the victim, proceeds to kidnap her mother (played by Army Wives‘ Brigid Brannagh) in the exact same fashion.

And in addition all of that casting goodness, Coleman is expected to return to NBC’s The Office this season as Angela’s “State Senator” significant other.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…
