(In what seemed like dissociation from the "horrifying crime show," he did not refer to Criminal Minds by name for the first 49 minutes of the interview, calling it, rather, "the show I'm on.") Of the six episodes he's directed, five of them bear his distinct stamp — whimsically shot dream sequences, 1920s lamps, elaborate wallpaper, a sense of the vaudevillian; Messer referred to one as "a signature Gubler episode." The incongruous sixth is Paget Brewster's final episode, "Lauren," which has a more sober, less theatrical mise-en-scène, perhaps the perfectionist's concession to the gravity of a friend's departure.I asked him about making art in his downtime on the set he's worked on for nine seasons: "It seems like both filming in general and being on the same show for so long could potentially be —""Maddening?He looked up at his friend's house as he described his own house in Los Feliz."It's sort of similar, actually," Gubler said, surveying the fern-surrounded home.

Matthew Gray Gubler is best known for his portrayal of Dr.Matthew Gray Gubler didn't want to show me his paintings.Since his own house was being renovated, the Criminal Minds actor was staying at his friend's house in Los Angeles; I asked if he'd been painting there."Nothing good, to be honest," he said, sitting in the shade in slippers.

He pointed to a window in the house.Matthew wanted to learn filmmaking but the institute did not offer it to him and hence he majored in acting from the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Visual and Performing Arts.
