Some interesting facts about Alex and his performance in the one episode of the TV Series Criminal Minds in 2009 ……
After 10 months of not doing any acting work, Alex was offered a part as a guest on Criminal Minds.
- According to Paget Brewster in an interview with TV Guide
Brewster: Oh, Alex…. Alex sets all the girls into a twitter. Various departments were vying for Alex‘s attention. We just finished that this past Saturday morning, at 5:30 am.
“This lovely lady, a fan, came up to me the other day and asked exactly that. And I said, ‘Hang on a minute—if the character has no path to redemption, then it’s difficult for me to play. But this guy, at the end, breaks through his own wall and touches another person. It’s a transition to epiphany.’
If people can’t see that, I’m not doing my job.”
“You know it’s a good [performance] when the crew starts hanging around the monitor. They came up to me and said, ‘This guy’s great.’
From my point of view, the more an actor can inhabit something that’s the opposite of him, the more producers can be surprised by it.”
“Alex is an amazing actor; he’s right next door, shooting scenes right now. Alex plays a serial killer who something happens to at a scene of one of the killings that changes his whole personality, and he reaches out to the BAU for help.
It’s a really interesting character. There’s also a great kid in the episode, Jake Cherry, and he and Alex share a lot of scenes together. Alex is very sweet with kids.”
• Jake Cherry’s performance as blinded Stanley Wolcott in this episode was assisted by Daniel Kish, a perceptual mobility instructor, who is the lead founder and CEO of World Access for the Blind. Daniel holds two national certifications in Orientation and Mobility, COMS and NOMC, and is the first totally blind individual to obtain both certifications. (Source: TV.com)
