Alex O'Loughlin to appear on episode of Criminal Minds

FINALLY! We've all been waiting for an Alex O'Loughlin sighting on television or the big screen. According to Michael Ausiello @ Entertainment Weekly Magazine, Alex will guest star on a soon to air episode of the CBS show, Criminal Minds. I am thrilled to know we will get some Alex time. It is soooooo important for him to stay out there and be seen. Hollywood has a short memory. This will tide us over until Alex's own show hits the air.... hopefully!

Exclusive: 'Moonlight' vamp Alex O'Loughlin returns to CBS

Finally, I have a bone to throw all you inconsolable Moonlight fans.

The dead drama's central blood sucker, Alex O'Loughlin, is returning to CBS in an upcoming episode of Criminal Minds, sources confirm to me exclusively

The change-of-pace hour, which is tentatively scheduled to air in April, will track a case from the POV of a serial killer, played by O'Loughlin.

This is O'Loughlin's first leap back into TV since Moonlight was laid to rest nine months ago. At press tour last month, CBS president Nina Tassler -- who signed the Aussie hunk to a development deal in August -- hinted that we may see him back on the network "soon" in a new project.

What say you, Moonlight fans? Happy to see O'Loughlin sinking his teeth into another meaty TV role -- even if he's not literally doing so? Sound off below!
