Aisha Tyler Joins Criminal Minds Season 11>>>
Watch the promo for “The Job”:
As always, the preview offers a look at the latest “twisted” and “bizarre” case for the BAU. This time, the UnSub overwhelms his victims silently and then injects them, and you can even get a look at what he’s going to be doing to them. Plus, get a look at Dr. Lewis explaining why she wants to be part of the team and a tease about a mole.
Check out a sneak peek from the premiere:
“I think forensic psychologists tend to stand out at the bureau,” Dr. Lewis explains to Hotch. “Other agents like it when I make sure the bad guys they’ve arrested are actually found competent to stand trial.”
While she is the only applicant who has as much clinical evaluative experience as she does, it’s not exactly relevant to what they do. Interviewing serial killers in prison is very different from hunting them, but that’s why she’s there; she wants to catch them instead of just studying them after the fact.
Watch a day in Aisha Tyler’s life as she hosts The Talk and then films Criminal Minds:
“I wanted this to be a very different character than I’ve played before, and a part of that was I wanted a different look,” Tyler says to explain the short hair her character has.
