In the Criminal Minds episode “Neon Terror,” the BAU investigates when an UnSub in Miami sensationalizes his crimes by giving the local media exclusive footage. As Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) says, “The media is feeding his ego directly.” Luke Alves (Adam Rodriguez) says, “He might be one of them,” meaning the UnSub could be a member of the press. Meanwhile, FBI Agent David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) goes on TV show “Inside Cover” to talk about his book Understanding Evil.” Rossi is interviewed by Brian Stoll.
TV Interviewer Brian Stoll is portrayed by former NBA champion Rick Fox (Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, North Carolina Tar Heels). The 6’6″ tall basketball player turned actor is known for roles on Greenleaf (Darius Nash), K.C. Undercover (Richard Martin), Hit the Floor (Chase Vincent), Mr. Box Office (Andrew Thompson), Single Ladies (Winston), Dirt (Prince Tyreese), One Tree Hill (Daunte Jones), and Oz (Jackson Vahue), among others. Before playing with Shaquille O’Neal (Shaq) on the Lakers, Fox made his acting debut in the 1994 film Blue Chips starring Shaq and Nick Nolte as Texas Western college basketball coach. Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10pm on CBS.
