Matthew Gray Gubler Matthew Gray Gubler

Matthew Gray Gubler has directed six episodes of Criminal Minds, but there is still a first time for everything.

"This one is probably the most grounded of any of the ones I've directed," Gubler, who plays Reid, tells TVGuide.com of Wednesday's episode. "It's a little more realistic. I was like, 'Wow, there's nothing insane in this episode!' So I had to bring the insanity a little bit."
