Matthew Gray Gubler is in his eleventh season playing FBI profiler Spencer Reid on ‘Criminal Minds’, which is very different from his role in the new movie ‘Band Of Robbers.’
Matthew plays Joe Harper, who is based on the character created by Mark Twain who, like his friends Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are now all grown up and on the wrong side of the law.
A modern-day retelling of Mark Twain’s iconic books, 'Band of Robbers' is a comedic adventure that reimagines the characters as grown men, and small-time crooks. When Huck Finn is released from prison, he hopes to leave his criminal life behind, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies, Tom forms the Band of Robbers, recruiting their misfit friends, Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure.
But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences…
‘Band Of Robbers’ will be in theaters and available On Demand this Friday, January 15th.
