So I was watching Criminal Minds last night. I never watched when it was on tv regularly, but lately I’ve been into watching the repeats and marathons on ion or a&e. What I like about Criminal Minds is that they aren’t just looking for a boogey man, but they are also interested and rely on the psychological make-up of their un-subs to catch them. That aspect of the show if a little different and totally interesting.
But anyway, I was watching last night and Jackson was in the episode. I hope I’m not spoiling, but I knew from the start the un-sub was a man dressed as a woman. They present you with a woman in the shadows at first. I don’t know why exactly I instantly knew he was a man, but I did. What I didn’t know was that Jackson Rathbone (Adam on the show) was the man dressed up as the woman Amanda.
I have to say he did an exceptional job on this show. His split personality character was totally believable, and he owned Adam and Amanda. You could tell the distinction between the two easily, and he transitioned from Adam to Amanda effortlessly. I never really notice Jackson in Twilight (although I loved his history part), so I was surprised by this role. I can’t deny that he’s a talented actor and will be paying attention to him a little more from now on.
Have you ever been surprised by any actors who’ve showed up in a role other than the one they are most known for? Did it affect they way you thought of them as actors negatively or positively? Do share!
