Criminal Minds: The big wheel

CBS - Season 4, Episode 22, April, 2009
by Simon Mirren and Rob Hardy

"Jake Cherry's performance as blinded Stanley Wolcott in this episode was assisted by Daniel Kish, a perceptual mobility instructor, who is the lead founder and CEO of World Access for the Blind. Daniel holds two national certifications in Orientation and Mobility, COMS and NOMC, and is the first totally blind individual to obtain both certifications." Jake was thoroughly delightful to work with, and was extremely observant and astute. He had a phenomenal capacity to translate what he experienced into convincing action. Blind people don't generally feel faces, but this major plot detail had been worked too deeply into the script concept to be changed.
