Adrianne Palicki Speaks on Criminal Minds Role

by at . Comments

Her Fox series, Lone Star, got an early axe, but Adrianne Palicki is currently shooting a guest starring role on Criminal Minds for early 2011, as we reported last month.

"It's in the vain of Natural Born Killers or Kalifornia," says Palicki of the killer Criminal Minds episode. "I never played a raging psychopath before so I couldn't turn it down."

"I'm having so much fun."

The show's casting moves have been roundly criticized, but between Palicki and new cast member Rachel Nichols, no one can accuse Minds of falling short on eye candy.

The actress describes her character, Sydney, as a girl "who comes from a broken home where her father molested her. She is an alcoholic who found love with a man named Ray. She and Ray get their kicks by drinking and killing people for no reason."

Sounds along the lines of what could have happened to her Friday Night Lights character, Tyra, had she continued hanging out with the wrong crowd. Speaking of FNL, Adrianne says she will return for the series' final two episodes this spring!

I loved her episode, Syd well acted, Ashley on the other hand made no impact at all, and as everything about her was revealed in one go, it's time for her to go.

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
