Thomas Gibson Fired From “Criminal Minds”

Welp, the “Criminal Minds” cast just got a new opening after CBS announced they have terminated Thomas Gibson for his on-set altercation with one of the writers.

Gibson, who snapped on set and kicked a co-executive producer, was already on a two-week suspension with producers of the long-running CBS crime drama gave him the pink slip.

Via Deadline:

“Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds,” the two studios said in a joint statement. “Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.”

Gibson had been suspended for 1-2 episodes (2 weeks) following the incident, which allegedly involved him kicking co-executive producer Virgil Williams. There also had been a previous on-set incident several years ago, when Gibson had to undergo anger management counseling after hitting assistant director Ian Woolf. The decision to dismiss Gibson was made after a brief internal review.

Gibson is an original Criminal Minds cast member, playing Special Agent Aaron Hotchner since the series’ 2005 debut. He also directed 6 episodes of the show.

Looks like Thomas will be “kickin it” at home for while…
