Andrew James Allen is an American television and film actor.


Allen was born in Redmond, Washington, to Robert, an artist and environmentalist, and Susan Allen, a retire radiology technician. He started acting when he was nine years old, first appearing in TV commercials. Eventually, when he was thirteen years old, he and his mother moved to Los Angeles, California. There, he began working on various film and TV projects, starting with an uncredited role in the 2001 movie Max Keeble's Big Move. Allen went on to star in the 2003 MGM Studios-produced made-for-TV movie Recipe For Disaster, alongside John Larroquette, Lesley Ann Warren, Margo Harshman, and Devon Werkheiser. Allen has also made guest appearances on Ghost Whisperer, CSI: Miami, ER, Bones, Cold Case, Monk, Grey's Anatomy, Malcolm in the Middle, Reba, Charmed, 7th Heaven, Make It or Break It, and Criminal Minds (alongside Recipe for Disaster costar Devon Werkheiser). Allen was next seen in The Lovely Bones, a movie based on the 2002 novel of the same name, and a horror film named Smiley.

On Criminal Minds

Allen portrayed abductor and killer Joshua Moore, who appeared in "The Wheels on the Bus". Coincidentally, Recipe for Disaster costar Devon Werkheiser also appeared in the episode as one of his abduction victims.
