Bon Jovi was first asked to play a Goth rock star FBI profilers believe is a serial killer in an episode of the CBS series, but had to back out.
Rossdale, whose acting credentials include roles in "Constantine," "The Game of Their Lives," and "How to Rob a Bank" among others, will fill in for the role; his episode will be aired sometime in the fall.
British rocker Gavin Rossdale has been tapped for a guest appearance on Criminal Minds as a brutal serial killer. How cool is that? His criminally induced appearance is slated to show up in November in the police procedural.
Criminal Minds on CBS, premieres on September 23rd at 9 p.m. I can’t wait. This, is a Bruce Fave!

Stop laughing. No seriously I mean it, stop laughing. It was just a joke. What's not a joke is that Rock Star Gavin Rossdale is going to be guest staring on Criminal Minds this fall. CBS made the announcment today saying that Rossdale will be protraying a "Goth rock star who has become lost in the frightening alter-ego he portrays on stage – an alter-ego whom the Bau team suspects may be a brutal serial killer."
This won't be the first acting gig for Rossdale, who made his mark as the lead singer and songwriter for the grunge band Bush, but who has gone on to star in several movies including Constantine, Little Black Book, Game of their Lives and his most recent independent feature, How to Rob a Bank which also stars the late David Carradine.

Here's an unusual combination: Gavin Rossdale and Criminal Minds. But the two shall meet this November when the British rocker and sometime-thespian guest stars on the CBS procedural. Rossdale will play a Goth rock star who may or may not be moonlighting as — what else? — a brutal serial killer. Rossdale's previous acting work has mostly been limited to the big screen. In addition to co-starring in the 2007 Nick Stahl-Erika Christensen heist flick How to Rob a Bank, Gwen Stefani's other half has appeared in Zoolander, Constantine, and The Mayor of Sunset Strip.
