VIDEO: Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders' Tyler James Williams Wants to Have a "Genius-Off" with Reid

How do we make this happen?

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the smartest BAU agent of them all?

If you ask Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders' Tyler James Williams, it's his character, Russell "Monty" Montgomery. On the surface, the analyst looks to be the equivalent of Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) on the upcoming Criminal Minds spin-off, but the actor assures you Monty's head is not just a hat rack, my friend.

VIDEO: Why Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders' Gary Sinise returned to TV

"I'd say Monty is smarter than Reid [Matthew Gray Gubler]," Williams tells TVGuide.com. "I would love to see them have a genius-off."

Your move, MGG.

Check the video above to see why Williams thinks Monty will crush Reid.

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders premieres Wednesday, March 16 at 10/9c on CBS.
