CRIMINAL MINDS: "THE MANDY PATINKIN DECISION"
Criminal Minds: I am not trying to take a poke at Mandy Patinkin, ex-Jason Gideon on Criminal Minds, but I was surprised to see Ken Levine mentioning Mandy. We all lived through Mandygate!
-Sometimes you’re in a pickle because you know the actor can be difficult but they’re also brilliant and no one else is as perfect for the part. Then you have to make the “Is this person worth it?” decision… otherwise known as the “Mandy Patinkin” decision . Often times you make a Faustian deal with the devil. Lots of people got rich thanks to Brett Butler and GRACE UNDER FIRE but half of them are spending it all on 24-hour care at the drooling academy.-
