'Royal Pains' Star Heads to 'Criminal Minds' (Exclusive)
Royal Pains star Paulo Costanzo is leaving the Hamptons.
Costanzo has booked a guest-starring gig on veteran CBS police procedural Criminal Minds, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
He will appear in the 12th episode of the season as Shane Wyeth, an old friend from Garcia's (Kirsten Vangsness) troubled past who she hasn't seen since she joined the BAU. (An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Costanzo would play Sheriff Scott Miller in episode 11.)
Criminal Minds is set to hit its 200th-episode milestone, which will bring back former regular Paget Brewster.
Repped by Gersh, Principato-Young and Rick Genow at Stone Meyer, Costanzo stars as Evan R. Lawson on USA's Royal Pains, which is set to return for a sixth season.
Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS.
