Matthew Gray Gubler

Born March 9, 1980

Matthew Gray Gubler has long been one of my favorite characters on Criminal Minds. There is something about the character of Spencer Reid, the brains, the wit, the naivete – that makes the character work. But Gubler is a lot more than that one character.

Noteworthy

  • Modeling – Gubler was scouted when still at NYU as a model. He modeled for Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, and American Eagle among others. The lean look, the bone structure – no shit he became a model.
  • Acting – 2005 he got the role of Spencer Reid and America, in particular, those obsessed with procedurals about serial killers, fell in love with the character. Add to his list of movies: Alvin and the Chipmunks, How to Be a Serial Killer, Life After Beth, Band of Robbers and many more – you can see his full range.
  • Filmmaking – Gubler is a director, editor, and producer. From short subjects and music videos for bands like The Killers to episodes of Criminal Minds, Gubler can do a little bit of everything.
  • Painting – BTW… he can paint too. Some people are too talented.

I’ve always had the utmost respect and awe of what the lens can do and what a director can do with just a camera move.
