'Criminal Minds' Star Rachel Nichols On Her New Movie 'A Bird Of The Air'

Fans know actress Rachel Nichols from her roles on TV in "Alias" and currently on "Criminal Minds," and movies like "Star Trek" and "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra." But she's had quite the busy summer starring in the remake of "Conan the Barbarian" and her latest role is in the movie "A Bird of The Air," which tells the story of a sassy parrot and a free-spirited librarian upend the well-ordered life of a solitary man.

Lyman (Jackson Hurst) is a loner, working the graveyard shift for the Courtesy Patrol. When a green parrot flies in to his trailer he becomes obsessed with finding its owner, which leads him to Fiona (Rachel Nichols). She has been eyeing Lyman from a distance and decides to help with his parrot search, whether he wants her to or not.

Along with her basset hound, they set out on a quest to find the bird's previous owners and Fiona begins to unravel the mysteries of Lyman's past. But when Fiona joins Lyman on his nightly rounds, she witnesses a reality more intense than the romantic version she had envisioned.
