  • Talented actor

    A very brillian young actor who have lots of talent.
    He is really gifted, in this early age he achived so many things about acting.
    And his masterpiece is definately Dr. Reid, he is so awesome in acting this chrachter.
    He is doing his best by his body movement, his mimics and tone of his voice.
    I want to give my blessings to casting crew, they made a hell of a good job by casting him as Dr. Reid.
    I want to see him also in a big movie.
    I hope he will get lots and lots of awards because he deserves it so much.
  • Matthew Gray Gubler is a very talented actor, director, artist and writer!! i have yet seen any of his work that i wouldn't appreciate!! He is different and definitly talented and its just an added bonus that he is extremely easy on the eyes! peace out xx

    Matthew Gray Gubler is a very talented actor, director, artist and writer!! Never have i yet seen any of his work that i did not appreciate, nor do i think i will in the near future!! He is different and definitly talented which makes me want to see his work all the more! I am looking forward to seeing his latest film when its released and in the mean time will continue to watch criminal minds! I have recently watched the movie 'alvin and the chipmunks' not realising that he played the character of 'simon' i feel like he played the part perfectly! This movie is just another example of how different and talented matthew is!! His artwork is somewhat different but very interesting from what i have seen on his web page! i think that he is extremely artistic in all his areas of work!! peace out xxx
  • Who would have thought this endearing "nerd" began his public career as a male model? And yet, it makes sense if you look at him closely; you see the beautiful eyes,the great bone structure....

    But enough of that - why do we love the character of Spencer Reid and the actor who portrays him so skillfully? I can answer that question for myself - I love SMART. A male who may not be classically handsome to others becomes extremely sexy and good-looking to me if they are brilliant. What is so interesting about Matt Gubler is, I knew in real life he would be very similar to Spencer Reid - that he would be highly intelligent, very well educated, a bit shy and awkward until called upon to unravel a mystery or solve a complex puzzle. I wonder if his real Mom is anything like her television counterpart? If anyone knows, please respond somewhere in this Forum - I'll be looking.

  • Love him!

    I love Matthew Gray Gubler! He seems like such a sweet and gentle soul. I'm sure his mama is proud of him. He brings alot of charm and character to the character he plays. He's clearly my favorite. I didn't know that he used to model. I will have to look up those pics. I can see him in preppy college boy looks. I am really looking forward to the new season -- can't wait!! Criminal Minds is my favorite show! Shemar Moore is also one of my faves! I'm sad to hear that A.J. will be leaving. I loved her on the show. Please reconsider!!
  • I love the show, yet I have a suggestion for an episode. If The B.A.U. went to Norris Middle School in Norris Tennessee to observe their antibullying campaign, it may open a bunch of eyes into the cruel world and how Tennessee in cracking down on it.

    This is for Matthew Gubler main role to lead his expertise, since I was picked on, and my wife was picked on as a child, and apparently so was the principal there as well. They have new programs to teach teachers on how to deal with it, and to prevent would be bullies from becoming one.Stating bullys have a much better chance of going to prison. And to add validity to this about two years ago there was a school shooting about thirty miles away from Norris at Campbell County High School This would make a great episode. This would be more for the theory of preventing a disaster before it happens again......... Thank you very much
  • Matthew is an intriguing and charming individual and it shows in his acting. Can't wait to see his "Criminal Minds"directorial debut!

    To me, Matthew Gray Gubler is a fascinating and endearing person and it shows in his acting. While inevitably type cast as the nerdy genius, and has quite a following; Matthew brings a bit of his own personality and humanizes Reid in a way no one else can. He also adds a bit of humor, unintentionally at times, to an otherwise dark television series. Matthew is "SSA Dr. Spencer Reid". Per his own admission, he is a better director than actor, so his upcoming "Criminal Minds" directorial debut is going to be a must see for all Criminal Minds fans.
  • He's one of my favorite actors and I don't just say this. he's very artistic and skillful person. plays very nice and complicated characters which are not easy to play.

    He's one of my favorite actors and I don't just say this. he's very artistic and skillful person. plays very nice and complicated characters which are not easy to play.he's got brilliant personality and an amazing taste. I love the fact that he's favorite season of all time is Autumn and favorite holiday Halloween like me. I also love that he's not just an actor, but a model and a director, too. he does some crafty sketches and he's only 29 yet. I know he will get some good roles in the future and I respect him very much :]
  • I love this show ans wishmuch more continue success.

    I am happy to see such a brillant man to the series..he truly draws my attention to watch was he does next. He brings a new concept of nerds being quite intriguing. I wish the show many more years of success and for the cast to keep up the good work.
    As for Shemar Moore, I am happy to see he too is on this show. I remember when he was on The Young and the Restless and he is still as sexy as he was then. Keep up the workout! As for the rest of the cast you are all very talented and intelligent actors...and make sure Kristen Vangress stays as polite and naive...she is adorable!
  • Why is this nerd so endearing? I do not pay any attention to fashion mags so I really do not remember seeing him anywhere. He grew on me. I admit that I am now smitten.

    Why this actor caught my attention - your guess is as good as mine. I started watching the show by default. I usually watch true crime shows and the History Channel. The show was on A&E in reruns and I just left it on. THEN I got I am definitely a fan. That is big for me as I do not watch "drama" tv as a rule. Matthew has turned out to be my favorite character. Go figure. The Nerd. I would love to see him in something else. I just like him a lot - so shoot me!
  • genius and a chipmunk?

    Matthew Gray Gubler. I think he's adorable. I became obsessed with his character Spencer Reid on (one of my favorite shows, maybe I'm just biased) Criminal Minds. I thought he was just another nerdy FBI agent, but was proved wrong when he developed a drug problem and fell for a young Hollywood starlet. But besides the fact he's great in Criminal Minds...He's a chipmunk in Alvin and the Chipmunks the movie!!! Isn't that adorable? Gubler's ever growing hair is also another thing to love about him. I think he's just great, walking down red carpets in crutches and posting his, um, eccentric pictures on twitter.
  • THe Best

    Matthew Gubler is the perfest man for playing Spencer Reid. He has that geekyness about him. I know that being told that you are geeky isn't a great comment. In Matthew's case it is the best thing ever. Wearing glasses makes him not as handsome but he is handsome anyway. The first time my friend saw him she almost fell out of her seat. When I first saw the show I new instantly new he was going to be my favorite character. Almost everyone in my family watch this show except my father who thinks cop shows are brainwashing people I told him this isn't a cop show but, regular cop shows like the CSI francise and the NCIS francise are great too. Anyway all the women in my family think he is so hot (and I agree).
  • I

    I love this show. I just saw it for the first time about a month ago. Now I watch it every chance I get. I just bought the 2 DVDs The 1st season and the 4th season. When I can, I will get all of them so I can watch it over and over again. Matthew Gubler is my favorite. He is amazing, I think that he is the best actor on the series . He is a brilliant actor. As long as he's on the show I'll never stop watching. The cast is so perfect. Actually everything about this show is perfect. I rarely watch TV but am totally hooked on this one. I wish I would have known about it sooner.
  • criminal minds is one of the most popular shows in Ireland. my whole family love it and just adore matthew gray gubbler.

    criminal minds is such a popular show here in Ireland.I love all the cast and think they all work so well together. My favourite has to be Matthew Gray Gubler! He plays the part of Spenser Reid so brilliantly. How he can be so smart and yet so vunerable at the same time is genius. His slightly geeky personality just adds to his charm. I love watching how all the characters bond and even my girls wouldnt miss it though that mite have something to do with Shemar Moore who plays Morgan. I have to say he has to be one of the most gorgous men in the world.Series 5 hasnt started here yet and we eagerly await it. Keep up the good work x
  • Love Spencer Reid!

    Matthew is such an amazing good actor!
    One of the main reasons why I got into Criminal minds is because of matthew.
    I absolutly love how he plays the charming, cute & ofcourse smart Spencer Reid!
    He plays a very convincing part as Spencer Reid!There's nobody who can do it better.

    I absolutly love his storyline, he's always been this little boy, but you can see him growing throughout the serie.
    I love his quotes and his akwardness and I really love 'the relationship' between him and Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore)
    Brotherly love!
    So as long as he's on the show I'll never stop watching! xD
  • Amazing actor, he is my favorite on the show!

    He is amazing, I think that he is the best actor on the series. He is talanted, plays the part excellentlly, well organized and very handsome. I don't think that you could have picked a better person to protray Dr. Reid. However, the rest of the cast is amazing as well. They are all complimentary to the others. They play nice with one another for the most part. But the quotes and the tides bit of their true soul's show through each situation. I can truly enjoy growing with each person as the season progress, and knowing that it just keeps getting better! Great job to all the cast and crew, writers and producers.. but most of all Matthew!
  • Wow!

    Matthew Grey Gubler seems like a really great person. He reads Ray Bradbury, likes bubble baths and Halloween. How much cooler could he be???
    Also his birthday is on the 9th of March, my birthday!!!
    He is charming, funny and sweet. His talents range from children's movies (Alvin and the chipmunks) to adult movies (how to be a serial killer). His art is brilliant because when you look at it at first it looks scary or sad, but then it looks funny and makes you want to smile. From his hand written web page to his odd socks, Matthew really is one in a million!!!
    Happy warm fuzzies :P
  • just average...

    Matthew Gray Gubler is just an average actor. He really is not that great, but he's not terrible. He plays Dr. Reid on Criminal Minds and plays the character relatively well. I think my dislike for him is part the hate for the character and part the mediocre acting on his part. Anyways, I've only seen his as Reid on Criminal Minds so it's a little unfair for me to judge him on just that. His acting in the show just seems like saying lines and becoming the character a little. He really is just mediocre and I don't think he should get any more roles.
  • What a lucky day for us, the viewers, when the casting director of Criminal Minds chose Matthew Gray Gubler for the role of Dr. Spencer Reid on this outstanding show.

    Matthew Gray Gubler is outstanding in the role of Dr. Spencer Reid on the show Criminal Minds. This character, abandoned by his father at ten, left in the care of his schizophrenic mother, graduated from high school at twelve. He went on to earn three PhD's, has an identic memory, and can read 20,000 words per minute. Playing the role of this nerdy genius, Matthew has given us these insights into his past with the emotions this past evokes clearly played out on his face. The abandonment and pressure of having to care for his ailing mother, while being so much younger than his classmates, have made this character socially awkward, emotionally reserved and in a league of his own. As he youngest member of this team of profilers it would be easy to see him as just the keeper of all knowledge, and one dimensional, but Matthew is very adept at preventing this from happening. He uses the quirkiness and eccentricities of this role to flesh out a whole character. One you love to watch and care about. The emotions of Dr. Spencer Reid are given life by this fine actor, and they play across his face and in his body language with a convincing, often heart wrenching honesty. A great role, played by a great actor.
  • matthew is a brilliant actor.

    matthew plays doctor spencer reid perfectly. i love criminal minds and reid is one of the best characters. matthew is unbelievably talented, not only as an actor, but as a director and artist. he's got the talent to go far and i hope he does. it would be nice if he had a chance to direct an ep of cm at some point.

    if you haven't, you should check out matthew's website at, it's brilliant. so are his "unauthorized" documentaries on youtube.

    if you haven't seen criminal minds, you should check it out. the writing is sharp, the plots are excellent and the characters are fantastic. matthew's portrayal of reid is nothing short of brilliant.
  • Whoa!

    I find this man to be totally amazing. He is absolutely fantastic as FBI Special Agent Doctor Spencer Reid in Criminal Minds.

    The way he plays the character is so heartfelt and moving plus he is totally amazing as it. I especially love how he played Reid when he had the drug issues. This is because he played it with such heart and emotion. :)

    Of course it totally help that he's unbelievably gorgeous and as Reid he is a total sex god. Lol. I personally have a total thing for geeks so I love Reid because he is, well duh, a total geek. I personally think that Reid is my perfect man. :):)

    Matthew Gray Gubler is my personal favorite hero and actor and I think that he is SO down-to-earth. I hope to meet him and be friends with him.

I also wish to be like him one day. I love his dog she is so cute. And me and him have so many things in common I think. He is a friend on my myspace. He is so kool and I hope yall will always love your favorite shows no matter how old you get cause I know I will. Dannie Ray McMichael
  • WOW.

    I have two words to describe my feelings for Dr. Spencer Reid: HUUUUGE CRUSH!!! lol I mean he's gorgeous AND extremely intelligent, sensitive, caring and not arrogant(I don't know what he's like in real life but his character is at least). What more could a girl ask for?!?! He's pretty much my dream guy! hehe I obviously don't know what Mathew Gray Gubler is like as a real life person, but one thing I can certainly say is that he is definitely a very talented actor in everything he does ;0) Keep up the good work cutie!!! lol One more thing is for sure, as long as he's on the show I can guarantee I'll watch! =0)
  • He plays the gifted Dr.Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds

    The first episode of Criminal Minds I saw was Somebody's Watching and I saw Matthews awkward swim with the girl Lila. I was intrigued with him because he reminded me so much of a young Daniel Jackson(Stargate SG1). The next episode I saw him in was The Big Game/Revelations and did he impress me. He was kidnapped and abused and he acted like a real person would. He was frightened and he cried unlike the macho men that usually are sarcastic and laugh off torture. It was even more impressive because Reid may look fragile he had a great ammount of strength and was able to save himself.

    He is so beautiful and I can see Reid's torment in Matthew's eyes and facial expressions. I love intelligent ,quirky men and he personifies that. Those model looks don't hurt either. A model who can act. He really humanizes Reid for me and with just a look in his eyes or a catch in his voice,he can drive me too tears. I felt so bad for him when he told Morgan of his childhood torment in Elephant's Memory. When he cried,it felt like an actual memory.

    I hope Criminal Minds doesn't lose him. He's a gift and I won't watch the show without him.
  • What a Sweetie! He was even cuter in person!

    Not only is this show great, Mathew is too! I went to a pumkin patch over the weekend and Matthew was there with a couple of his friends. He was picking pumpkins enjoying his day like the rest of the patrons. It was not until we were in the line paying that people started noticing him. He very polity handle the little crowd of parents that started approaching him. He signed families receipts thanking them for their encouragments and even stopped to take a photo with a my freind and I. We apologized for being so excited but again he was kind. One of his friends even took the picture for us. I have ran into celebrities in and around Los Angelas before and by far he was the kindest. This experience will make watching his show even better!
  • Criminal Minds has one of the best ensemble group of actors on TV today. Matthew Gublers' "Reid" is a major reason why.

    Reid ranks at the top of my list for all time favorite characters. I love Gublers' chameleon like ability of his to ease into a role and own it like a second skin. I hated it when Patankin left the show - but I have continued to watch. And as much as I admire the whole cast - if Gubler left I'm not so sure I would do the same. I'm surprised it took more than one or two auditions before they gave him the gig for CM. There must have been some fierce competition/talent. But kudos for the final decision to pick Gubler and kudos for picking all of these folks - they work well together and on screen it really gels. I am looking forward to Gubler having a very long and successful career.
  • "I am embarrasingly 1920s in style... Matthew"

    Matthew or S. Reid in CM is the only actor that keeps me watching the show. He do well in the show as the child prodigy trying to get out the shell of being the boy genious. He wants to be called a man and should be respected as a man. He is the the only character displaying the real profiling phase.
  • Reid is my all time favorite, and by far the hottest guy ever! Great actor and great guy!

    From all I've seen, MGG is an awesome guy!!! He doesn't care about what other people think (by way of his crazy socks) and he has impressive acting skills. He blew me away with his acting on Revelations. He made me cry. Anyway, he plays a character that I can really relate to, being put down by others, feeling left out, socially awkward, and many other things. I love watching him becuase I feel just like him and it's great to see his interaction with the other members, and they feel like part of my family too, because I wish I knew those kind of people too, esp. him. No one in the entire world could play a better Dr. Spencer Reid. The writers better not make him permanently addicted to drugs, or suffer a chip on his shoulder because of it, becuase then all that he stands for will be crushed, and there will no longer be a hero for people like the rest of us out there.
  • Finally a celebrity without an ego as large as K2! Matthew is talented, funny, hot, interesting, intelligent and did i mentioned HOT?

    I think Matthew Gray Gubler is one seriously underestimated actor. He makes, by example, Dr Spencer Reid in Criminal Minds so realistic and believable. Besides working as an actor he is also a talented model, filmmaker and artist. How can one single person be so good at so many things? And like that wasn't enough he is ego isn't large at all, you understand that by checking his website. Handwritten and scanned in, haha. It looks very personal and down-to-earthed and this brilliant actor also answers all of his fan-mail. How many celebritys do that nowadays?

    Well, i think all Hollywood producers should hire him right now so we all can look at his gorgeous features and other flawless assets!
  • An unbelievably talented man with a mind and personality as beautiful as his appearance.

    Matthew Gray Gubler is truly the most talented, refreshingly unique, amazingly witty actor on television; and well, how could one not notice how gorgeous he is? Beyond the obvious though, I find it unbelievably generous of him to share his heart and thoughts with his fans so openly. He doesn't take his fans for granted in the least. His website makes this evident. He is a talent like the world rarely sees, and I only hope to see more of him. The grand success that Criminal Minds has became is thanks in no small part to his skills as an actor. He's beyond beautiful, beyond brilliant, and beyond anyone else you'll find anywhere.
