Matthew Gray Gubler was born on March 9, 1980, in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is the son of attorney John Gubler and rancher/political consultant Marilyn Kelch. Gubler has two siblings, sister Laura and brother Gray. Laura is a fashion designer, and Gray appeared in the Whirlwind Heat music video “Reagan,” which Matthew directed. Gubler studied acting at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts because the school didn’t offer what he most wanted to study, filmmaking. After graduating from high school, Matthew majored in film directing at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. As an NYU student, he signed with DNA Model Management and modeled for Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, and American Eagle. At one point, models.com ranked Gubler #46 on its list of the top 50 male models.
After he started modeling, Matthew landed an internship with filmmaker Wes Anderson, who suggested that Gubler audition for a role in his 2004 film “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” Matthew was cast as Intern #1 in the film, and the role led to him being cast as Dr. Spencer Reid on the CBS series “Criminal Minds.” He stayed on the show until it ended in 2020, appearing in more than 300 episodes, and he opted not to return for the 2022 Paramount+ revival “Criminal Minds: Evolution.” Early in his acting career, Gubler co-starred with Robin Williams, Jeff Daniels, Cheryl Hines, and Kristin Chenoweth in 2006’s “RV,” and he appeared in the films “The Great Buck Howard” (2008), “How to Be a Serial Killer” (2008), and “(500) Days of Summer” (2009). He voiced Simon Seville in 2007’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” which grossed $361.3 million at the box office. Matthew reprised the role in 2009’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” 2011’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” and 2015’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip,” which earned $443.1 million, $342.7 million, and $234.8 million, respectively.
Gubler appeared in the films “Magic Valley” (2011), “Excision” (2012), “Hot Air” (2014), “Beautiful Girl” (2014), “Band of Robbers” (2015), “Trash Fire” (2016), “Newness” (2017), “68 Kill” (2017), “Endings, Beginnings” (2019), “Horse Girl” (2020), and “King Knight” (2021), and he co-starred with Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser, and John C. Reilly in 2014’s “Life After Beth.” That year Matthew also starred in the comedy-horror film “Suburban Gothic,” which earned him a Screamfest Award. He appeared in the Daytime Emmy-winning web series “The Beauty Inside” in 2012, and in 2019, he began a seven-episode stint as Wes on the Hulu series “Dollface,” which starred his “Suburban Gothic” castmate Kat Dennings.
In 2009, Matthew dislocated his knee while dancing and had to undergo three surgical procedures. Gubler used a cane for close to a year, and in a February 2010 interview with “USA Weekend,” he stated, “I just basically dismantled the knee to the point where they were talking about experimental surgeries in Norway. They weren’t even going to try what they did because they thought it might be a lost cause. But they screwed me back together, hoping it would work and thinking it wouldn’t, and luckily my body completely took back everything. A lot of times, cartilage won’t re-adhere because there’s not much blood in it, but it was a miracle that it worked. I ended up not losing anything at all – I’m pretty much back to normal.” In October 2014, Matthew became a certified minister, and he officiated the wedding of Paget Brewster, his “Criminal Minds” co-star, and Steve Damstra the following month. In 2011, one of Gubler’s paintings sold for $10,100 on eBay, and he donated the money to Las Vegas’ Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
