Fans may also recognize Hofmann from JAG, Providence and Dear John.

In that installment, she comes to her former husband, played by Joe Mantegna, for help. Criminal Minds' seventh season kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 21.

I'm excited for the new season. This should be an interesting storyline and it will explain more of Rossi's character, which, sadly, we don't know a lot about.

She was utterly brilliant on JAG. My parents were college professors, so I know one when I see one. She was totally believeable. I'm looking forward to this character.
