  • He is the whole package, he has looks, he's smart, has a nice build and great personality and the rest of the stars compliment him and each other.

    I love the show and I admit it was hard to pick a favorite, but he is smart, has personality and he is good looking! *Please quit cutting his hair, it is part of his personality. The show has a great plot and always ends on a note that leaves you pondering about that particular episode. I've always been a fan of this type of show, but they are above the mark! I do not miss an episode, if I don't watch it live I set up the DVR. Each individual has their own unique personality and add something special to this show and every season and every episode. I've never seen an episode that I didn't like but there are a few that I have saved on my DVR because they are that good! Thumbs UP!

  • 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
  • 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 :]
  • 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
  • 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 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 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!!
  • 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!
  • Matthew Gray Gubler.. A hot dork!

    Although Matthew had a small role in The Aquatic life.. in which it wasn't all that great, his role that is. He has a much larger role in Criminal Minds. His dorky but genious character, Dr. Reid, is hot in a way only Matthew could play it. He has a very young, plesant look about him which makes him all the more appealing. I really like the show, Criminal Minds and I think Matthew will be a hit in more movies to come.
  • My review of him

  • Actor, director, screenplay writer, magician... What can't he do?

    As an amateur stage actor, I find myself very often looking at television and movie stars for how they personify the character, and normally, especially by younger actors, am disappointed. The list of actors and actresses that I like that aren't over 40... is not too high. Talent is very hard to find, and exceptional talent that really wows you, is even rarer. So, when I actually find someone who is, well, geniunely good, I'm flabbergasted. And Matthew Gray Gubler is just that. If you want a taste of Gubler's personality, take a look at his website,, and you'll have all the ideas that you'll need. He's only really starting out as an actor, but as a graduate of Tisch College at NYU, which is already impressive, he has already been in 4 or 5 movies. Not to mention that he has written and directed a good amount of shorts.
    His greatest achievement at the moment, though, is co-staring in Criminal Minds, and this truly showcases his talent by giving him an interesting character and storylines to play with.
    I remember that when I found out he was in RV, I went and rented it and watched it with some friends. The movie itself was okay, but when he came on for his 5 minute role, I jumped up and down and said, "Look! Look! It's Matthew Gray Gubler!" and all of my friends went, "Who...?" Of course, his white trash character in that story was so contrasting with his anti-social, well kept, intelligent Reid that I was on the ground laughing for the next two scenes. Needless to say, my friends think I'm insane, but, then again, I'm sure that they knew that already.
    He's got a lot ahead of him, and I think that he's going to make it big. With talent and good looks, he could be the next "Johnny Depp" that every girl from age 13-40+ dream about!
    I can't wait to see more.
  • dorky though he may seem... you just cant take your eyes off him...doesnt get the props he deserves

    i love criminal minds, its like one of the only shows that i love that is yet to get the axe from their network and matthew gray gubler is fantastic in it... for someone who was a model, who are normally percived as air heads who know nothing, to come into a show and play a genious who graduated from high school at 12 is just fantastic irony, i recently watched a short film of his that he made, and must admit that its possibly one of the strangest things i think ive ever seen in my life, so not only now do i know thats hes fantastic looking and he can act, hes also a talented director with a wicked sense of humour.
  • Well sorry aboute the bad rewiew i was just bored, haha

    Hello Strangers and Stalkers!
    I Hope that he\\\'s the guy Reid in Criminal Minds, and if he is i just wanna say that he\\\'s a really good actor.

    Peace Out People
  • 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!
  • 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. :):)
  • I am someone who has never considered myself a television watcher, but when I got pregnant, my late night outings stopped and I became an addict..thanks to this show. Spencer dragged me into the drama, I frequently find myself talking out loud, expressing

    Gubler's character, Spencer, is the most believable dramatic act I have ever seen...I used to watch t.v. He brings me evening entertainment that I am excited to talk about the next morning, perhaps because I remember what I did the night before, and I was actually thoroughly enthused. Matthew Gray Gubler is underrated and perhaps under appreciated. I would love to see him in more scenes for this show, as well as some appearances in other shows. His boyish good looks and innocent charm give him my vote as becoming the next "it" guy. Admitting I have this addiction is the first step in realizing that I don't want help.
  • This actor/director/children's magician/former model is a perfect ten across the board. His boyishly gorgeous looks are simply icing on the cake. He possesses a very real screen presence, portraying Reid in such a likable way that this character alone dra

    Criminal Minds, with its story lines, twists, wide variety of psychopaths, music, and cinematography, satisfies the adrenaline junkie in me. This is my first experience with being hooked on a series to the point where I actually care if it comes back the next season. The entire cast is outstanding, and the actors have great chemistry together, but Gubler, in my opinion, is the most talented (I think the only other actor that rivals him for that distinction is Mandy Patikin).

    Gubler's facial expressions, mannerisms, attention to smaller details, and emotions he conveys through his eyes honestly bring his character to life; in short, he humanized Reid. Gubler has taken an original, sympathetic approach to playing the classically misunderstood genius. A lesser actor could have easily turned this role into one giant cliche or, at best, given this character an annoying personality.

    When I first started watching this show, my instinctive reaction was to give Reid a hug because I felt so bad for him. Just examine the character. Reid was born with the kind of uncanny brilliance that branded him a social misfit from birth. Connecting with his peers on a "normal" level was never an option. He grew up far ahead of his time, which is probably something that is very difficult to cope with. He has taken a ton of crap from people his whole life for his amazing abilities. Years of ridicule produced his understandable social anxieties, his fear of speaking out, and his natural reaction to withdraw internally. There have been instances during different episodes when I wished Reid would scream out, "I did not ask for this! I'm a human being too, remember? So just treat me like one!" The recent revelation about his mother's schizophrenia further demonstrated why he struggles with sadness and loneliness. I really hope the writers give him a girlfriend in the next season.

    Aside from characterization, one of the things I have enjoyed throughout the season was watching Reid grow and transform. His social skills improved. He conquered some of his fears. He is learning how to use his gifts. Reid has so many dimensions and layers that you constantly learn something new about him. You never quite know what is going to happen next, which is very cool. My main gripe is that he is not always used enough in the episodes. He needs to be focused on more often.

    My other favorite thing is the way the writers turned the BAU into, essentially, his second family. When you watch the other team members, they all tend to act as if they have adopted him. Gideon is definitely the father figure. Even though he puts up a stoic front, you can tell that he loves and watches out for Reid with a fatherly approach. Hotch represents the protective older brother. Morgan acts like the brother that gets a kick out of messing with Reid but at the same time continuously tries to pull him out of his shell. You can tell that he really does care about him. Elle is a little bit harder to figure out. Despite her occasional rude moments, she is usually the first to show consideration for Reid's feelings and has admitted to admiring his genius. JJ and Garcia are friendly towards him.

    Again, I absolutely love watching Gubler onscreen (and not just because he is beautiful). Thanks to him, I am officially addicted to Criminal Minds. I hope to see this multi-talented guy in future projects when the show ends (which hopefully will not be for a looong time). He just has way too much going for him to disappear. Oh yeah, it is also awesome that he actually answers his own fan mail. I wrote him a short email one night thinking there was no chance he would ever read it, much less respond. I got a reply the next day. He was so sweet!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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
  • Love him!

    I love him as he is a personal favorite and that he brings not just nerdiness makes it look cool and cute
    Very talented actor and hope and pray that if the show is over(Hopefully not for a long, long, time LOL!!)
    He will break out as he does have a wonderful future ahead of him!
  • Endearing, funny, and to top it off, adorable.

    Matthew Gubler has quickly become one of my favorite actors on television. I am intrigued by his character, especially his 'autistic leadings' because my brother is autistic. Maybe this is why I find his character so endearing. His portrayel of the awkward genius is original, hilarous and heartwarming. I especially love his interactions with the rest of the BAU team, especially Morgan.
  • Wonderful actor whose personality really shows on his webpage.

    Matthew Gray Gubler is a wonderful actor. He was good in "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou" as Intern #1. His character was cute and loyal. As Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid in "Criminal Minds", he does a terriffic job of portraying a socially awkward genius. He certainly has the cute nerdy look to enhance it. His character is the one I love the most on the show. I have been to his webpage a couple of times, and his personality really shines through. He is definitely someone I would want to get to know better if I ever had the chance. I hope to see the movie "RV" soon. But I especially can't wait for the new season of "Criminal Minds", just can't get enough Reid!!:)
