According to Entourage, moving from film to television was comparable to a big step down in your career. I am starting to wonder if that holds true in practice, however, as Forest Whitaker is looking to star in a Criminal Minds spinoff for CBS.

Forest Whitaker Negotiating TV and Criminal Minds

Forest Whitaker is currently in final negotiations with CBS to star in the series. The spinoff, which revolves around a new group of profilers who work outside the FBI bureaucracy, will be introduced on an episode of Criminal Minds this spring.

Whitaker will play Cooper, the squad leader. Described as dynamic, mysterious, charming and a father figure to the rest of the team, he is a former star profiler in the Behavioral Unit who has been off the radar for the past eight years.

If Whitaker does decide to go forward, and CBS is thinking he will, the actor will also supplement his income with producer credit.
