Criminal Minds Spin-Off Gary Sinise

‘Criminal Minds’ is getting a makeover! A spinoff of the beloved CBS series was announced on Jan. 16, and it will star ‘CSI: NY’ star, Gary Sinise. This seems like a match made in CBS heaven!

Gary Sinise, 59, is back in action, this time on CBS’ Criminal Minds spinoff! Although production for the highly anticipated project won’t happen until February, we think it’s worth the wait. So what do the team behind Criminal Minds have in mind for the spinoff?

Criminal Minds Spin-Off: Gary Sinise Will Star In New Show

Apparently, Gary is taking his action and FBI fighting skills abroad!

“Like Criminal Minds, which centers on the FBI’s Analysis Unit, the spinoff focuses on a division of the FBI. It follows FBI agents helping American citizens who find themselves in trouble abroad,” according to our sister site Deadline.

Specifically, “Sinise will play their boss, Jack Garrett, a 20-year veteran of the Bureau, who is currently in charge of the FBI’s top team for handling cases involving Americans abroad,” adds Deadline.

Plus, Criminal Minds devotees can expect a purist approach to this spinoff since the original executive producer of the hit series, Erica Messer, is also producing this project as well. We can’t wait!

‘West Wing’ Cast Reunites For Viral Video — Watch

While we are on the topic of spinoffs, the West Wing cast reunited for a viral video that is so funny and literally cheesy!

The video was created to promote the second annual virtual Big Block Of Cheese Day, which is on Jan. 21.

With a cameo including White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and the epic West Wing cast including Allison Jannery, Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen, there seems to be nothing feta (we mean better) than that.
