*Beau Garrett has landed the female lead on CBS’ spinoff of “Criminal Minds,” which will be launched in the spring.

The project – from ABC Studios, the Mark Gordon Co. and CBS Studios – revolves around a new group of profilers, led by Cooper (Whitaker), who work outside the FBI bureaucracy.

Garrett will play Gina, described by the Hollywood Reporter as a tough girl and recent FBI recruit who is loyal to Cooper and the object of Mick’s (Matt Ryan) affection.

Last year, Garrett played the female lead on ABC’s pilot “Empire State,” which was also produced by ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co. Her resume include “4: Rise of the Silver Surfer” and the upcoming “Tron Legacy.”
