'Criminal Minds' Adds 'Beyond Borders' Star as Series Regular for Season 13


Daniel Henney will join the flagship show and reprise his role as FBI's International Unit and a member of a Special Ops team Matthew Simmons for the upcoming season 13.
Although CBS canceled "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" after two seasons, Daniel Henney ("Three Rivers", "Hawaii Five-0" and "NCIS: Los Angeles") is staying in the franchise. Daniel, who played Matthew Simmons on the "Criminal Minds" spin-off, is set to join the flagship show as a series regular in the fall, Deadline reports.

Daniel will reprise his role as the special agent for the FBI's International Unit and a member of a Special Ops team. By joining the mothership show, it means that Matthew will be leaving the International Response Team to join the Behavior Analysis Unit alongside Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and Jennifer Jareau (A.J. Cook).

Daniel's promotion comes a week after CBS announced that Damon Gupton would not return for the upcoming season. Damon was tapped to replace Thomas Gibson, who was fired from "Criminal Minds" at the start of last season for an on-set physical altercation with a producer.

"Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" was canned by CBS last May. In its second season, the spin-off only managed to average a low 1.2 rating among 18-49 demo with delayed viewing factored in.

Season 13 of "Criminal Minds" is set to debut on Wednesday, September 27 at 10 P.M. on CBS.
