Actor Thomas Gibson Suspended From 'Criminal Minds' After Kicking Writer

Actor Thomas Gibson has been suspended from his hit CBS television show Criminal Minds for kicking a writer.

The 54-year-old actor was directing and acting in an episode a few weeks back and had a creative difference with one of the writers. TMZ reports that the argument got heated and that is when the kick occurred. The writer’s agent told CBS and Thomas has been suspended for the past two weeks.

“There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement. I regret that it occurred. We all want to work together as a team to make the best show possible. We always have and always will,” Thomas said. Thomas also claims he only kicked the writer in “retaliation” after the writer became aggressive with him.

    I saw the Paley interviews and Thomas said he’s very little in common with the do-gooder role of “Aaron” who all but has a halo over his head in each episode. Could Thomas have wanted Aaron to show more warts perhaps, a darker side somehow?

    He looks like a real angry alcoholic and even though he’s smiling the photo above captures that perfectly. Only shocking bit is how this is only the first time he’s become violent.

    “…We all want to work together as a team to make the best show possible. We always have and always will..” “Except for that one time I lost it and kicked a writer, big deal!” the actor also added.
