This season, he’s been dealing with the mental deterioration of his mother, played by Jane Lynch, and a stint in a Mexican […]Read On »

However, arguably Dr. Spencer Reid, played by Matthew Gray Gubler, has had the rockiest year of all. In Season 8, it took him ages to work up the nerve […]Read On »

I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »
