In the Criminal Minds episode ‘Mirror Image’, a man who claims to be the brother of Dr. Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler) comes into town and reveals that he knows everything about the Lewis family. Lewis is freaked out — she can’t reach her real brother — so the BAU opens an investigation. While they interrogate Gabriel (Terrence Terrell), Lewis turns to her father Albert for help.
Albert Lewis is portrayed by Stan Shaw. He’s known for his roles on Murder, She Wrote (Det. Sgt. Vince Lofton), Wiseguys (Major Vernon Biggs), and in the TV mini-series Roots: The Next Generations (Will Palmer), among others. Shaw is also well recognized for his roles in the films Rocky (Dipper), The Great Santini (Toomer Smalles), Harlem Nights (Jack Jenkins), and Fried Green Tomatoes (Big George). Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9pm on CBS.
