Janeane Garofalo Joining Criminal Minds Spin-Off – Janeane Garofalo has been speaking out about finding a promising CBS series this summer. There have been several reports suggesting that she is making negotiations with Criminal Minds producers for her to star in a spin-off of the show on the CBS network.
Janeane Garofalo said to reports, “I think I’m going to be doing a series at CBS starting in August. I think, I hope. But if not, then I will be looking for a job and doing stand-up.” She released these statements during a recent satellite interview that was used to promote her EPIX comedy special “If you Will.”
Judging from these comments any negotiations that she is making with CBS about a Criminal Minds spin-off have clearly not been finalized. While she has stated that she would love to do the spin-off, it’s unclear whether CBS will be proceeding with the idea. However if Janeane Garofalo were offered another position, it’s fortunate that we know she would accept. Entertainment Weekly reported that her deal with CBS and the Criminal Minds spin-off is “nearing a conclusion.”
Other resources have even gone further to suggest that the deal is practically complete and she is set to star as an agent of the elite detective team on the show. Janeane Garofalo will play as their leader if given the role. She’s only 46-years-old and she’s starred in several reality TV shows like Reality Bites and Saturday Night Live where she made an appearance at 24. She’s also been doing comedy fro most of her life. Fans say she’s relaxed and tells funny jokes. She’s comfortable being on stage and stand up isn’t as easy as you might think.
“You can’t just spontaneously go on tangents. I’m not one of those comedians that knocks it out of the park every time, I don’t get nervous at all doing it live but I have experienced dread.”*Sponsored Links*
