Gavin Rossdale Stars As A Rocking Vampire On Tonight's 'Criminal Minds'

It already sort of makes sense to mention former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale and "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson in the same sentence, as they're both hot guys from England. But after tonight's episode of crime drama "Criminal Minds," there will be another way the two will cross paths: They'll both have played sexy vampires.

"Criminal Minds" star Matthew Gray Gubler dished to MTV News about Gavin's cameo on the show, revealing that Mr. Gwen Stefani will embrace his rocker roots and go for the jugular in the episode which airs tonight at 9 p.m. CBS.

"He may or may not be [a killer]. He plays a vampiric sort of rock star who may or may not be killing people to hype his album," said Gubler, who plays FBI profiler and psychologist Dr. Spencer Reid. "I'll be honest: I've noticed that [vampire] craze as well and no [we're not trying to cash in]. The thing is that [vampirism] is actually a pretty common delusion."

He went on to note that since rock stars and vampires seem to have pretty similar schedules (minus the whole blood-sucking thing), it makes sense for Gavin to try the role on for size. "So if you're going to pick something to fit a rock star, I think we went more with what are the odds of what he would be that cinematically interesting to watch and rather them him being a pedophile," he explained. "They went with rock star."
