Exclusive: 'Criminal Minds' nabs Gavin Rossdale

Gavin-Rossdale_lHere’s an unusual combination: Gavin Rossdale and Criminal Minds. But the two shall meet this November when the British rocker and sometime-thespian guest stars on the CBS procedural.

Rossdale will play a Goth rock star who may or may not be moonlighting as — what else? — a brutal serial killer.

Rossdale’s previous acting work has mostly been limited to the big screen. In addition to co-starring in the 2007 Nick Stahl-Erika Christensen heist flick How to Rob a Bank, Gwen Stefani’s other half has appeared in Zoolander, Constantine, and The Mayor of Sunset Strip.

    Aww, i hope he’s not too bad in the episode that i start cringing every time i see him with his sons…

  • Angela

    Never heard of the guy, so no opinion about him. Not sure what to think of the whole goth rock star angle, but since they’ve done a show about pickup artists without coming off flashy or gimmicky, lets just hope this is the same.

    • Patrick

      He was the lead singer of Bush; he is now married to Gwen Stefani of No Doubt.

    • Alicia

      You know his songs, Glycerine, Machinehead, Comedown, Chemicals Between Us, Letting the Cables Sleep, (and most recent) Love Remains the Same…… great voice, great looks!!!!

  • Bridget

    I loved him in The Matrix and Constantine

    • tina

    • Melissa

      He’s not Keanu Reeves.

      • Shelley

        Maybe not, but he was in Constantine.

      • Alicia

        No, but he looks better………

      OMG I love the collage wall! I just did one last year up our strais and I’m obsessed! I always feel like I should add something though but I didn’t have any good ideas. I have a question though, did you do all your prints in black and white, or did you mix in sepia tones? I can’t tell from the photos. Anyways, right now I have black and white and want to add sepia tones but I didn’t know if it would match. Anyways, I’m sure this is completely random, but I love looking at your website every so often and I’m glad I did today! Hope you’re doing well!

    Isn’t he Australian?

    • Alicia

      He’s English. A sexy English-man!!

    criminal minds always does interesting things w/guests – wil wheaton, jamie kennedy, dawson, alex o’loughlin- so gavin should be no exception. plus he was pretty good in constantine.

  • liz

    He is British. I may actually watch that show to see that episode

    • tina

      • Suze

        Ditto, Love me some Gavin Rossdale… mmm

  • Jen

    Hot damn! I will definitely be watching this episode, I’ve had a crush on him since he was in Bush.

  • jfan

    CriMi has done truly awesome things with guests that you normally wouldn’t peg for serial killers. Jamie Kennedy, Wil Wheaton, James Van Der Beek, and Jason Alexander to name a few. I trust that they’ll make Rossdale’s ep spectacular.

  • danielabambina

    As if I wasn’t excited enough about new episodes of this show

  • carole


  • katiebabs

    Never seen this show before, but will totally check it out for Gavin, thanks for the scoop!

  • Andi

    HAhaha! I can’t believe I guessed right! When I saw your tweet I didn’t even stop to consider I just thought, CM. That’s hilarious!

    We’ll see how it works, I’m pretty wary but I trust CM.
