Shemar Moore Weekly News Wrap-Up

SHEMAR LOOKING FINE in a Mohawk and Spandex.
  • WITH THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BIKE MS ride just over two months away, Shemar has been training for the 100 mile event. On July 19, Shemar, rode in Bahati's Bike MS. It was sponsored by US Criterium Champion, Rahaan Bahati. For a $20 registration fee, cyclists rode 35 miles on the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway with Rahaan, Shemar and others. The money raised was donated to the MS Society. Shown in the top photo wearing a modified Mohawk, Shemar was looking good. Will Criminal Minds' Agent Derek Morgan have a new hairstyle this season?
  • SPOILERS FOR CRIMINAL MINDS SEASON 5 continue to trickle in. Matt Roush at TV Guide this week reported that in the omnious ending scene in the Season Finale, TWO guns were involved. C. Thomas Howell, and former Dead Zone hottie, Sean Patrick Flanery will be guest starring in the first two episodes. 58 agonizing days and counting until the September 23 Season Premier.
  • SHEMAR MOORE WILL BE ONE OF the celebrities attending The National Urban League Conference in Chicago being held July 29-August 1. The event will begin with a Red Carpet Reception. Looking forward to some photos from the event. No one looks better in a suit than Shemar.

Weekly Wrap-Up, Shemar News

Earlier this week, some reliable bloggers were reporting that Shemar would be returning to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS for a few episodes. Malcolm Winter's baby girl, Lily, is gravely ill and it is anticipated that her natural Daddy, Malcolm, will be coming to his daughter's bedside. Dates have not yet been released.

It was announced that SOUL TRAIN would soon be released on DVD. Shemar Moore hosted the program for four years and fans are hoping that he will be included. Will love seeing the fabulous musical acts that appeared on the program over the years, and a little Shemar will be icing on the cake.

The EMMY nominations came out this week, and except for a minor nomination for stunt work, CRIMINAL MINDS was ignored, AGAIN!

The series resumed filming this week, and Hotch fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The entire cast is back to work, but OMG, Hotch may be hurt. A casting call that went out was for someone to play an emergency room doctor in the episode. Hopefully, there won't be another long ambulance/surgery scene. Been there, done that already with Elle, Penelope, Reid and Agent Kate Joyner.

Shemar registered a few days ago to ride in the BIKE MS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RIDE for the fourth straight year. The event will take place on October 3. Since Shemar's mother suffers from Multiple Sclorosis, it is a cause close to his heart. I'm personally looking forward to the press he does to promote the ride, and the photos of him in that tight little biking outfit.

SSA Derek Morgan of Criminal Minds

Shemar Moore's current role is on the hit CBS series, "Criminal Minds." He plays FBI Agent Derek Morgan. Derek is thirty-six years old and single. He is an ex-Marine and former Chicago cop. He is an expert in obsessional crimes and has had bomb squad experience. He attended college on an athletic scholarship and earned a law degree from Northwestern University. He was offered the position of Head of the FBI Field Office in New York City, which he turned down.

Derek witnessed his father's murder when he was just ten years old. Troubled as a teenager, he got involved with gangs. As a result, he had a juvenile record. He was mentored by the well-respected coordinator of a local youth center, who helped to get his record expunged. His mentor got young Morgan involved in sports and helped him to turn his life around. Unfortunately, the man also sexually abused him, leaving scars he still struggles with. It is for this reason Morgan seems to be especially affected by crimes involving children.

Morgan's past was explored in the Season 2 episode, entitled "Profiler, Profiler," which is a favorite of Shemar fans. Shemar gave a stunning performance in the episode which forced Morgan to confront his past and his abuser. It was also shown in that episode that Morgan is bi-racial and has two older sisters, Sarah and Desiree.

"Criminal Minds" has just begun work on Season 5.


Thank You, Shemar!

LOVING MOORE is a site dedicated to actor, Shemar Moore.

I have been a Shemar fan since his days on "The Young and the Restless." Over the years, I have watched him evolve from a young, inexperienced performer into a highly competent actor. Unfortunately, his acting is often underrated, or at least unnoticed. Shemar has done stunning work for the past four seasons on "Criminal Minds," the mini-series "Reversible Errors," and the edgy thriller, "Motives." He became the man every woman wanted as the sensitve character of Orlando in "Diary of a Mad Black Woman." He has shown a flair for comedy in his featured roles in "How to Marry a Billionaire" and "The Seat Filler."

For all the years, thank you, Shemar! Looking forward to much Moore to come.
