Early Life

Gubler was born in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 9, 1980. His father is an attorney, and his mother, Marilyn Kelch Gubler, is a rancher, political consultant, and former Nevada Republican Party chair. Gubler majored in drama at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts.

He claims, however, that he had no intention of becoming an actor; he simply thought that theater class would be fun and that acting would help him develop public speaking skills that would be useful in another career. “At the academy, my friends and I joked that our major was Acting Not As an Occupation 101,” he recalled. “I imagined it would help me become a lawyer or help me speak in public. That’s how I felt about that school.”

Despite his reservations, Gubler excelled in acting and appeared in numerous plays at the prestigious school. “I was in Picnic at Hanging Rock, The Importance of Being Earnest, and I also got to play The Cat in the Hat and The Mad Hatter, two of my favorite fictional psychopaths,” Gubler recalled. “Those were entertaining shows. Those are something I miss. I wish I could go back in time.” Nonetheless, he had never considered acting as a career. “I never thought I’d be making a living off of acting—still it’s a surprise to my family and friends to see my face on TV every Wednesday night,” he said.

Gubler attended the University of California, Santa Cruz after graduating from the Las Vegas Academy in 1998. He soon changed his major to filmmaking and directing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He graduated in 2002 and was spotted walking down the street by a modeling agent who stopped him and asked if he wanted to pursue a modeling career.

According to Gubler, who does not consider himself particularly attractive, the agent saw potential in him only because “emaciated weirdos who look like Muppets” were popular as male models at the time.

Nonetheless, Gubler quickly rose to become one of New York City’s most sought-after male models over the next two years. He has appeared in print advertisements and runway shows for renowned fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfiger, Sisley, and Kate Spade.

Acting Career

Despite his highly successful modeling career, Gubler never stopped making movies. While still working as a model, he took an internship with screenwriter and director Anderson in 2004. Anderson cast Gubler as Intern #1 in his 2004 film The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, starring Bill Murray and Owen Wilson, as a reward for his hard work.

Almost immediately after, Gubler landed the role of Dr. Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds, a brilliant FBI agent who holds three Ph.D. degrees despite being only in his mid-20s.

Many commentators initially viewed Criminal Minds as a losing venture because it was too dark to achieve mainstream popularity and shared the same time slot as the immensely popular Lost. “Everyone was like, ‘Oh, don’t even unpack your bags,'” Gubler recalled hearing. “You’ll be canceled in a week and a half.”

However, by 2006, Criminal Minds had become one of the most popular shows on television, consistently outperforming Lost in the ratings. The show’s success, according to Gubler, is due to its ability to tap into the powerful emotion of fear. “Our stories are very dark — truly terrifying,” he says. “And people enjoy it.” Gubler even directed a couple of episodes.

Gubler has a number of film credits in addition to Criminal Minds. In the animated 2007 film Alvin and the Chipmunks and its 2009 sequel, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, he voiced Simon. He co-starred in The Great Buck Howard with John Malkovich in 2008, and a year later he landed his most visible film role to date in the popular and critically acclaimed comedy (500) Days of Summer. Gubler, in addition to acting, writes and directs short “mockumentaries” that can be seen on YouTube. “Unfortunately, I think I pay more attention to those fake documentaries than to the actual show,” he admitted.


Gubler wrote and illustrated Rumple Buttercup: A Story of Bananas, Belonging, and Being Yourself, which was published on April 2, 2019.
