Yet another EW "exclusive" video...Hotch & Beth in the finale...I think after the fans voted Aaron Hotchner/Thomas Gibson the most under-appreciated actor, they changed their tune about posting things about CM...
Oh, we knew they were going to be renewed (okay, really hoped that CBS and ABC wouldn't be stupid to cancel them since CM is the #1 show on Wednesday per EW) but we just didn't know if everyone was going to return...
Mantegna, Gibson, Moore, Vangsness and Cook all signed 2 year deals. I wonder if Gibson's included the chance to direct more episodes.
Didn't MGG re-up last year for two years? Or is he the only one still without a contract?
Here's the announcement from EW: http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/05/09/criminal-minds-renewed-for-ninth-season/

ETA: Bonus (maybe NSFW?) yong Thomas Gibson drunk and making out with a cute guy at the back of a club in Love & Human Remains 1993:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqSWByXlWZE
What I love about Hotch or Gibson is that well, even though I saw him in Dharma & Greg first, ever since I knew him better as Hotch, everything he did before is available as a sauce of "Hotch did what", somehow I could see cameos of his other characters as not "completely different character" but "Hotch, wildly out of character wtf?" Gibson is believable and touching as Hotch and believable and touching as Greg, but somehow it is just easier to crack them up together in a unified character secret history than it is for different characters of other actors I like. For example, Mandy Patinkin, maybe it's the years (and completely different universe), but Inigo Montoya - Jason Gideon - THE SAME GUY gets more "Mind BLOWN" then Greg = Younger and Fluffier Hotch, or so say tumblr and youtube comments. Even MGG's performance as Bart, the submissive in a serial killing pair in How to Be A Serial Killer, doesn't get any "Hey, that's Reid as a serial killer" moment.Preppies of the Apocalypse
writes: "he plays an awful lot of yuppies, sinister or otherwise" Maybe that's it.
ETA2: another scene from Love and Human Remains, feel free to pretend that the long hair guy is Reid m'kay? NSFWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8MIfrSOFY8
Aaron Hotchner grew up suffering physical abuse at the hands of his workaholic, lawyer father. (Season 1). It's strongly implied that his mother did little to stop the abuse. Hotch has a younger brother named Sean, who is a chef in NYC. Their father survived cancer, but later died of a heart-attack at 47, while Sean was still a child.( Read more...Collapse )

Feel free to add any other thoughts about Hotch's character in this post, but keep it respectful, please. Disagreement is part of life, but don't put another person down to make your point.
Write about CBS’ Criminal Minds (airing Wednesdays at 9/8c) — any story about it, really — and a small sect of fans is sure to surface throwing their weight behind a someday romance between BAU agents Hotch (played by Thomas Gibson) and Prentiss (Paget Brewster).
Yet at least two factors might keep the Criminal Minds coworkers from ever broaching a workplace romance. For one, Hotch’s ex-wife was killed by a serial killer not two calendar years ago. There’s also the matter of while it’s one thing to have a lunch date with Lenny, the guy who drives the delivery van at your flower shop, it’s another to mix pleasure with a business that is so not conducive to canoodling.
“I’ve read [about some fans' want for a romance] and I don’t know how to respond to it,” Paget Brewster recently shared with TVLine. “I understand it on the one hand, because in the real FBI, people work so closely and are only around each other, so chances are that sooner or later they date each other. In some ways, it’s human nature.”
But on the other hand — and this is a valid point — “The idea that Hotch and I might be fooling around in a roundtable room when children are dying somewhere is really not appealing,” Brewster notes. “It’s a really hard line to ride, so I don’t know if they’ll ever write that. I really don’t.”
Thomas Gibson was similarly bearish on the idea when we ran it by him moments later, responding, “No, no, no…. Not unless it was one of those drunken evenings between Hotch and Prentiss.” (Yeah, one of those evenings. As if!)
Besides, Hotch is not the sort “to get involved with anybody he works with,” he contends. “Come on, he can’t do that!”
“That being said…,” Gibson added, “we’ll see.”SourceWell, now I'm picturing Hotch/Prentiss drunkenly going at it on the conference room table.
Last night was the Paley event and so here are some interviews that have been posted so far from the press line (none of the actual event yet).( Cut for season spoilersCollapse )
