Damon Gupton Joins 'Criminal Minds' as Series Regular After Thomas Gibson's Firing

CBS has announced it has added Damon Gupton as the newest series regular on the hit show Criminal Minds.

The 43-year-old actor will make his debut during the eighth episode of the current season 12.

Damon will portray Special Agent Stephen Walker, who will help the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) track down spies.

“Our BAU family is growing,” executive producer Erica Messer said in a statement. “We’re excited to have Damon join the show and work alongside our amazing cast and crew.”

Damon‘s new role comes after previous cast member Thomas Gibson was fired for allegedly kicking writer-producer Virgil Williams.

    This keeps getting more ridiculous w/continuously adding more people and trying to erase Thomas Gibson off the show. Hire him back because we need the same team. More information has been out and it turn out, Gibson was only defending himself from violent man you guys hired to write for the show. Gibson walked away and he tried to run him down, so this is okay? Just because he filed the claim, no one can touch him? You people fired the wrong man, fire Virgil Williams and rehire my beloved actor, Thomas Gibson.
