NCIS season 19: Fans tip Criminal Minds star as Gibbs’ replacement in CBS drama

User Classic-Bowl-9940 posted: “Watching Criminal Minds and thought, what if Gibbs retired and they replaced him with someone like Thomas Gibson’s Aaron Hotchner?

“It [would] be interesting. Great leader, smart and watches over his team but also emotionally distant at times.”

If Gibson does come on board, he could even reprise his role as agent Aaron Hotchner for CBS’s first ever NCIS-Criminal Minds crossover.

The series has crossed over with a number of other CBS properties in the past, including their revamped Hawaii Five-0, but two of their most popular long-running shows have never crossed paths.
