Sam Cooper (Forest Whitaker)

"Aaron Hotchner wasn't available, was he?"

  • Bald Black Leader Guy
  • Benevolent Boss
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a generally kind and empathetic man, but there are a few hints that he's got a darker side, like when Beth has to stop him from strangling a particularly twisted UnSub to death with his bare hands.
  • Cool Bike
  • Mommy Had A Good Reason For Abandoning You: He likes to believe that his biological mother, whom he never met, gave him up to give him a chance at a better life.
  • Mysterious Past: He's an old friend of Aaron Hotchner and David Rossi, has a history with Mick Rawson, left the BAU for a while and then rejoined it, is a Catholic priest and graduated from a seminary, and somehow got the authority to handpick a Red Cell team including a foreign national and an ex-con, two types of people usually not allowed to join the FBI.
  • Religious Bruiser: He's a Catholic priest and a skilled practitioner of Kali.
