AJ Cook has “considered” that he won’t be returning without his on-screen best friend Matthew Gray Gubler

Jennifer “JJ” Jareau and Spencer Reid had one of the sweetest friendships Criminal minds. The BAU agents kept in touch throughout the show’s 15 seasons, and JJ even confessed his love for Reid once. JJ and Reid’s friendship is sorely missed Criminal Minds: Evolution, but unfortunately Reid actor Matthew Gray Gubler was unable to join the revival. Apparently actor JJ AJ Cook almost turned her down too.
