Michael Ausiello of EW.com announced today that Alex O’Loughlin, is returning to CBS in an upcoming episode of Criminal Minds. Woot!!! It looks like a juicy role too!
The change-of-pace hour, which is tentatively scheduled to air in April, will track a case from the POV of a serial killer, played by O’Loughlin.
This is O’Loughlin’s first leap back into TV since Moonlight was laid to rest nine months ago. At press tour last month, CBS president Nina Tassler — who signed the Aussie hunk to a development deal in August — hinted that we may see him back on the network “soon” in a new project.
