In October, Criminal Minds will pay tribute to the murdered wife of Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson). “In our 100th episode five years ago, Hotchner’s wife, Haley, was murdered by Foyet [aka the Reaper] and then Hotchner beat Foyet to death,” says executive producer Erica Messer. “So we’re going to honor the longtime fans by clueing the audience in to where Hotchner has been emotionally these past five years.” Both Meredith Monroe (Haley) and C. Thomas Howell (Foyet) are being invited back to shoot new scenes.
We’ve heard a rumour that you actually help to choose all your character’s clothes on Criminal Minds.
My wardrobe department probably doesn’t want me to say that out loud, but yeah. I’m very picky, even for the simplest things like a pair of jeans or boots. I look at outfits and clothing from all angles, from the way your jacket fits to the height of your high-tops. You can call it vain if you want to, but it matters: the clothes I wear can change my delivery, the way I walk and talk. And because I’m the tough guy of the group, I’ve got to be able to run up and down fire escapes, kick down doors, and feel comfortable in what I’m wearing.
