Thomas Gibson Getting Kicked Off Criminal Minds Permanently For Writer Assault?! See What Sources Are Saying!
Thomas Gibson must be kicking himself over that outburst. Ha!
On Thursday, it was reported that the longtime Criminal Minds star was suspended from the CBS crime drama for 2 weeks after kicking a writer in a heated creative dispute.
But now it looks like the actor's vacation might be a permanent one, because executives are thinking of kicking him off the show completely!
According to TMZ, production sources said writers for the show are putting together a storyline for next season that gets rid of Gibson's character, Aaron Hotchner.
We assume Virgil Williams — the writer/co-executive producer who was kicked in the shin — is conjuring up a pretty gruesome death scene involving Hotch's legs being thrown into a wood chipper. (This is Criminal Minds, after all…)
If Gibson does manage to stay on the long-running series, he will never work as a director again — which was the role he assumed that led to the kicking and screaming fit.
But if he does get the axe, maybe we can finally get that Dharma & Greg reunion we've all been waiting for! Though we're sure she wouldn't approve of all this violence… LOLz!
