Jennifer Love Hewitt Joins Criminal Minds BAU
Jennifer Love Hewitt will play the role of Kate Callahan, a former FBI agent whose outstanding undercover work landed her a job with the elite Behavior Analysis Unit (BAU).
The former Party of Five star has taken on a number of TV roles in the last few years, most recently on Lifetime's hit TV movie turned series The Client List, which was cancelled after 2 seasons in 2013. Criminal Minds will be Hewitt's second role on a CBS series, as she also starred in the TV show Ghost Whisperer for five seasons before its end in 2010.
The 10th season of Criminal Minds air at 9:00PM on October 1, and CBS says that Hewitt's new character will be introduced right off the bat in the season premiere.
