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.

Molly Ringwald

Molly Ringwald Born February 18, 1968   Molly Ringwald was one of the Brat ack and one of the IT girls when I was growing up. She played teen angst better than almost anyone else. Noteworthy Sixteen Candles - Great cast as we see Molly Ringwald's dream of the perfect...

Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl

Linda Blair - Born January 22, 1959 An icon of the horror genre, Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl, will always be tied to The Exorcist from 1973. This movie set her in the limelight but I am not sure that it actually did her any favors. Noteworthy The Exorcist...

Josh Brolin is Cable

As of today, Josh Brolin is Cable. Just in case you missed the wonderfulness of this statement... Josh Freakin Brolin is Cable. Now, in case you missed it, Josh Brolin has been acting in Hollywood for a long time. He was a huge part of my childhood, appearing in one...

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be

Embrace that Movie for What It Is or Was Supposed to Be. Do not make the assumption that every movie is made to win an Oscar. Not all movies are film or art and not all films are good movies. To me, a movie is built, designed for entertainment. A movie can be...
