Jennifer Love Hewitt (second from right) will be joining TV's top Behavioural Analysis Unit in 'Criminal Minds'.
The actress is set to play an investigator in the popular TV series.
According to TV Line, CBS has recruited Jennifer Love Hewitt for a regular role in the 10th season of the procedural drama Criminal Minds.
Hewitt, who starred in the TV shows Ghost Whisperer and The Client List in recent years, will join Criminal Minds in the role of Kate Callahan, an undercover FBI agent who ends up working for the bureau’s Behavioural Analysis Unit (BAU).
The character will appear from the first episode of the 10th season, which is slated to air Oct 1 on CBS in the US. Hewitt’s arrival should help to make up for the departure of Jeanne Tripplehorn, who played special agent Alex Blake during seasons eight and nine.
“We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” commented Erica Messer, the show’s executive producer and showrunner.
“Many of us on the show have enjoyed working with her over the years and look forward to again. We have exciting storylines planned for her character and the entire BAU team as we head into our 10th season.”
Following a role in Sister Act 2 at age 14, Hewitt rose to fame mainly thanks to Party Of Five, in which she co-starred with Neve Campbell and Matthew Fox from 1995 to 1999, and thanks to the hit horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Following a brief period out of the limelight, the actress returned as the star and co-producer of Ghost Whisperer, which aired on CBS from 2005 to 2010. She then went on to headline the TV movie The Client List (2010) and the series of the same name (2012-2013), both of which aired on Lifetime. — AFP Relaxnews
