Josh Stewart (top photo), who has had a recurrent role on CRIMINAL MINDS for the past three seasons, has secured a role on "No Ordinary Family," a series premiering this fall on ABC. The actor is also a veteran of the series "Dirt" and "Third Watch."
On CRIMINAL MINDS, Stewart portrayed Detective, Will LaMontagne, who connected with Agent Jennifer Jereau (A.J. Cook) while the BAU was working on a case in New Orleans. In fact, they connected so well, that when Cook became pregnant in real life and a pregnant J.J. had to be explained, LaMontagne was written in as the father of J.J.'s baby.
With A.J.'s (bottom photo with SHEMAR MOORE) departure from MINDS coming in the first two episodes of Season 6, we are wondering if Stewart will be involved, or will his commitment to "No Ordinary Family," make him unavailable.
We would like to see Detective LaMontagne again, at least for one or two more episodes, as he is a fan and LOVING MOORE favorite. Alas, regardless of his availability, without J.J. there isn't a storyline for LaMontagne.
The collateral damage of A.J.'s departure, will be the disappearance of the charming, easy-going Detective from New Orleans.
We wish Stewart success on his new series, but MINDS fans will be sad to know that he won't be around any more.
