Jennifer Love Hewitt Returns to TV (Again (Again))

Maybe whispering to ghosts can help solve the case, what do you say Agent Hotchner?

She’s partied with five, did something last summer, fought alongside Jackie Chan, took care of Garfield’s health, whispered to ghosts and gave her massage clients a happy ending. Now CBS has announced that Jennifer Love Hewitt will join the cast of Criminal Minds, one of the channel’s many, many cop shows, when its 10th season premieres this October.

Executive Producer Erica Messer said “We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast. Many of us on the show have enjoyed working with her over the years and look forward to again”.

Then 35 year-old actress, who gave birth to her first child late last year, will play Special Agent Kate Callahan, a seasoned undercover agent. This marks the ninth regular series role for Hewitt, and her third since essentially giving up her once promising big screen career in the mid 2000s. Her Lifetime show The Client List was cancelled late last year.

I’ve never watched the show but Hewitt can be a talented actress if given the right material. So Criminal Minds fans, is she a good fit or is this just stunt casting?
