Criminal Minds may be trying to bring in a few laughs for season 11 as they have invited comedian Aisha Tyler to the unit. She will be playing Dr. Tara Lewis, a psychologist with an eye on forensic psychology and its application toward the criminal justice system.

More info on the character: “Her dream was to study psychopaths up close and personal – and her psychology background, combined with her experience in the FBI, brought her face-to-face with monsters. Her job was to stare them down and interview them, in order to determine if they were fit to stand trial. In the process, she made herself find the humanity inside these broken men (and, sometimes, women) in order to learn if there was a conscience behind their brutal crimes.”
