Celebrities‘Desperate Housewives’ actress Felicity Huffman (61) will have a regular role in the hit series ‘Criminal Minds: Evolution’, American media report. She will be seen in the upcoming season as Dr. Jill Gideon, a brilliant psychiatrist and the ex-wife of Jason Gideon, the character that Mandy Patinkin played in the series years ago.

‘Criminal Minds: Evolution’ is about the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, which attempts to solve crimes by analyzing the behavior of perpetrators. Huffman’s character is temporarily added to the team because she can help solve a difficult case.

‘Criminal Minds’ was already broadcast between 2005 and 2019. The series made a new start last season. Patinkin, also known from Homeland, appeared for 47 episodes as the leader of the BAU team. Later in the series, his character was killed off.

It is Huffman’s first role in a major series since the student fraud scandal for which she was convicted in 2019. The actress paid $15,000 (about 14,000 euros) at the time to boost her daughter’s exam scores. She ultimately spent eleven of the fourteen days imposed in jail. She also performed 250 hours of community service and was supervised for a year. Her husband William H. Macy was acquitted. Daughter Sophia later retook the exams and was eventually accepted into the theater program at Carnegie Mellon University, where she is currently studying.
