Criminal Minds' Prime Suspect

Forest Whitaker fervently circles a grand dining-room table in a stately Pasadena home, swooping around to view the room's layout from different angles. While he's absorbing every detail, everybody else is focused on the fact that at the head of the table is an actress playing a corpse in a state of extreme decomposition.

Whitaker, who won an Oscar for The Last King of Scotland, stars as FBI special agent Sam Cooper in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, the new spin-off of the wildly popular CBS series. While other actors simply want to hit their marks, he's seeking out thematic nuances and offering sharp, emotional performance variations during rehearsals — for a scene featuring a decomposing female corpse.

Criminal Minds Finale Asks: Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Bad things happen in Los Angeles when the lights go out.

"The mandate given to me by [executive producer] Ed Bernero for the finale was just to make it the scariest one we've ever done, which is an interesting assignment," Messer tells TVGuide.com. "I started thinking, 'OK we've done 114 episodes: What is the scariest episode we've ever done?' What I realized is, I needed to know what scares me. If I wrote my fear then there will be a truth to it."

So Messer added... read more
