Jeanne Tripplehorn joining Criminal Minds

From multiple marriages to serial killers….

Former Big Love star, the always-engaging Jeanne Tripplehorn is joining Criminal Minds as a new regular.

Deadline reports she will play a new FBI profiler, although details about the character are still being fleshed out.

Executive producer/showrunner Erica Messer said, “We’re thrilled to have Jeanne Tripplehorn join our team as a profiler.

“It’s an exciting way to start season 8.”

In addition Tripplehorn has closed a deal with CBS and CBS TV Studios to develop a comedy project, following appearances on New Girl.


  1. I record shows and will watch them in pairs. I still have episode 1 sitting there on my PVR, waiting for a second episode. It’s been there since april 11.
    Pathetic, channel 7.

  2. @ Nessa — It’s even worse than you thought. Ch 7 only showed the *first* episode of Season 7, then pulled the show. It looks like it’ll be a long time before we see Season 8 and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
