According to network sources, Sinise will portray Jack Garrett, a 20-year veteran of the FBI who leads an elite BAU team that handles cases involving Americans abroad.

The proposed spinoff (written by Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer) will be filmed in February as an episode of Criminal Minds Season 10 and will air some time this spring.

Sinise, meanwhile, has taken an acting hiatus since his CSI franchise went off the air; over the past 18 months, he has devoted his time to the Gary Sinise Foundation’s humanitarian work.
