We Adore Shemar!

Do you adore Shemar Moore as much as I do? I'll admit it...just seeing him as Derek Morgan on CBS' prime time crime drama, Criminal Minds, or even hearing his voice, makes my day! Tell you what, a few of my gal pals feel exactly the same way too!

What IS it about Shemar Moore that is just so... grrrrraooo! He can be hilariously funny, interacting with Penelope Garcia (played by Kirsten Vangsness). Did you catch him on Criminal Minds playing the big physical training assessment joke on Spence and Penelope? He totally kicked their butts and it was hilarious! He can be "don't even think of messin' with me" bad... I wouldn't want to be a criminal lined up in his sights! He can be a marshmallow hearted sweetie and super bad all at the same time. Remember the time Penelope came from the hospital after being shot and the bad cop was trying to kill her? There was Derek being her protector, telling her he loved her and going after the bad guy all within the space of minutes. He's got it all! SO... Dear Derek Morgan... yes, we love you!

What do we know about Shemar Moore, the actor? In this article we'll learn some interesting facts about the real guy behind Derek Morgan. Find out what Shemar is up to when he's not playing Derek. I'll show you where to buy his "Baby Girl" clothing line which supports MS research, a cause close to his heart because of his mom. Get links to the best places to check out Shemar on the web. Learn about Criminal Minds discussion groups online.
