Kirsten Vangsness to Pull Double Criminal Minds Duty

at . Comments

Kirsten Vangsness is in for a busy 2010-2011 TV season.

The actress, who portrays Penelope Garcia on the original Criminal Minds, will take on the same role for the show's spin-off, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior.

"The real BAU teams share analysts, so it made sense for us to combine the positions on TV," Suspect Behavior executive producer Chris Mundy said. "On a personal note, Kirsten is amazing, both personally and professionally. Her talent will make our new series that much better both on screen and behind the scenes."
