Their Job is to Catch Criminals. Their Specialty is to Think Like Them.
Special Agents Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin) and Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) head up the FBI's most elite profiling team - experts in analyzing criminal minds. Each team member has their specialty. There's Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini), who has a background in sexual offenses; Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), who focuses on obsessional crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), the smart-but-socially-challenged genius; and Jennifer "JJ" Jareau (A.J. Cook), the rookie. With each mind-blowing case, they put their lives on the line as they match wits with the most ruthless criminals on earth.
