I'm starving, my dogs need to be walked so that they don't poop all over my house. I'm gonna go lay out in the sun and splash around in the pool, exercise a lil bit and talk some mess with my crazy funny friends. But just know I am a guy who believed in a dream, chased the dream and is living the dream trying to be the Best Shemar Moore that I know how to be! Whoever you are, believe in YOU and be the BEST YOU by any means necessary. I will never take my fans for granted and I will always appreciate you. Peace Out to my Baby Girls, my homies and all my fans. Nothing but LOVE.

If Thomas Gibson smiles, will his face crack or will it be a divide by zero thing?

P.S. Your show made me choose criminology as my university major.

shemarmoore327 karma

Believe it or not, when Thomas Gibson is not being "Hotch" he is actually the biggest the joke teller of the team! He can do accents and imitate people extremely well. He loves his kids enormously and loves to show videos of them and tell jokes. But as soon as the cameras roll and the director says Action - he turns into grumpy death stare Hotch.

I honestly don't have any questions but I wanted to say that Morgan/Garcia is my favorite tv duo! You and Kirsten have such amazing chemistry on screen.

shemarmoore240 karma

Thanks for the love baby girl!

midnightbarber70 karma

I don't really have a question, but I just want to say that my mom and I always bond over Criminal Minds. You're her favorite (mostly because you have really nice arms). So thank you for being a part of that. :)

shemarmoore146 karma

Kisses and Thangs to you and Mama!! I'll make sure I stay in the gym and keep it sexy for you!

mikeyla63 karma

Shemar, I love you sooo much!! I always watch Criminal Minds!! Can you say hi to me?? That'd be just AMAZING, and you'll make this day th best day EVER and the happiest of them all!!!!!!

shemarmoore181 karma

You want me to say Hi? I want to say HEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYY BAAABBBBYYYYY GIIIIIRRRRLLL!!!!!!! How do you like that??

Lparker10460 karma

Do you ever use real life experiences to help you portray your story lines in the show?

Where did "baby girl" (the name you call Garcia) come from?

Love the show!!!

shemarmoore142 karma

Whenever I have to perform emotional scenes, I draw from my own life experiences, so whatever the character is going through feels real.

"Baby Girl" is something I've said my entire life. I have all kinds of pet names, like Baby Boy, Pretty Boy, Sweet Cheeks, Sugar T*ts, Doll Face, Mama, Baby Mama, Wifey and a whole bunch more. I just ad libbed in a scene with Garcia in Season 1 and they kept it in the show and Baby Girl was born.

shemarfan12459058 karma

A lot of people want the BAU team to be in relationships with each other. Who would you like Derek to be with if you got to choose?

shemarmoore359 karma

The team really is made up of brothers and sisters, it's weird to think about doing the hanky panky with the ladies on the team. Garcia has some amazing cleavage and AJ has a cute lil tush, but that's Shemar talking - not Derek.

danielle229653 karma

What's ur favorite episode of criminal minds. And are you and Kristen as close and Garcia and Morgan are

shemarmoore150 karma

Hey Danielle - my favorite episode would be Profiler Profiled and Restoration. The chemistry you see on the screen between Morgan and Garcia is because Shemar and Kirsten adore each other in real life.

mafoo38 karma

How do you handle working with such dark material day in and day out? Ever deal with nightmares, etc. from your work on CM?

shemarmoore80 karma

I don't take my work home with me. I know that I'm just playing pretend but my job and my passion is to bring the material to life and make it real for you. I'm grateful that the world that I play in is not the world that I live in. But it is fun to creep you guys out, to scare you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

yuxuibbs36 karma

(I watch a lot of Criminal Minds so I was super excited to see your name on an AMA)

What is it like playing Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds? Favorite episode(s)? Favorite quote(s)?

Any stories about what happens behind the scenes while filming Criminal Minds that doesn’t make it to the bloopers?

Have you read any fan fiction about Derek Morgan? If so, what are your opinions?

Which role do you think is/was the most fun/enjoyable so far in your career?

How long does it take for you to memorize your lines? Do you use any “cheat sheets”?

How often do you watch the films/shows you were in?

How often do people recognize you in public?

Any interesting stories of what fans said/did to you that you can disclose?

PS: Criminal Minds made me want to learn a lot about the human mind and how it works. I have to say the psychology and forensics classes I took during the school year were the best classes I ever took. I even chose criminal profiling as my psychology final project.

shemarmoore80 karma

Wow yuxuibbs ... alot of questions, I'll try to answer as many as possible.

  1. Derek Morgan is the tough guy who kicks down doors, he's the charming guy who flirts with Garcia, he's the big brother of the team. He's proud, private, has trust issues - sometimes temperamental but very loyal. He hates bullies and will always do what he can to protect those that can't defend themselves.

  2. Profiler Profiled and Restoration

  3. "Hey Baby Girl, let's get our flirt on and keep it silly and sexy"

  4. We are a bunch of goofballs behind the scenes. Reid is Pretty and tells jokes, Hotch does smile once in a while, JJ is sarcastic and funny, Rossi is one of the coolest people I've ever met, Blake is the hottie from Basic Instinct, Garcia is just one of a kind and my Baby Girl for life. I get pranks pulled on me all the time, the crew has scared me with bears, rats and bats.

canadiangirllynn34 karma

Are you fashionably late to every event? lol ;)

shemarmoore144 karma

I'm half black and there's an expression called "CPT" which means "Colored People Time" - I don't mean to sound racist, it's simply funny. So I many run a few minutes late, but when I show up it's always right on time.

cecile3329 karma

I am French and I love série.Je read the book now Volume 2.Je'm also a fan of you, you're too beautiful and sexy I love you Shemar.Bisous of France.

shemarmoore100 karma

Bonjour Cecile! Je t'adore. Voulez vous couche avec moi ce maintenant lol lol lol!!! I love my sexy French Baby Girls!

bbkfftw26 karma

Shemar, you are amazing on Criminal Minds! What was it like to be in the presence of Mandy Patinkin? Do you play pranks on your co-workers? If so, what kind?

shemarmoore52 karma

Working with Mandy was an honor and a lot of fun. I felt like he motivated me and inspired me to dig deeper and push myself to continue to grow as an actor. I miss him and have a great deal of respect for his talent.

cheesefilled26 karma

Beard or no beard?

shemarmoore84 karma

Shemar likes a 5 o'clock shadow and scruff! Derek wears a goatee because it's the easiest to maintain and gives him a lil edge. If Derek was to shave off the goatee (which I'm considering), it might make him look a little too nice, and I like that Derek has a rough and tough all business facade but all you fans know he's a little softie underneath.

lady187624 karma

Who on the show were you the saddest to see leave?

Who do you enjoy filming scenes with the most?

shemarmoore86 karma

  1. It's always sad to see anybody go that's been part of your team and your life when we spend so much time together. The recent loss of Paget Brewster has been hard to get over because her energy and talent cannot be replaced.

  2. I have a good chemistry with all the actor. I like going head to head in intense scenes with Thomas, I like goofing with Matthew, I like talking mess with Joe in between scenes, I like running around kicking butt with AJ and she's fun to look at (just saying) and of course, all the sexual tension with my Baby Girl Garcia never gets old.

dearsarahsay20 karma

Hi Shemar!! What is your favorite food?

shemarmoore67 karma

I love homemade cooking!! I don't cook all that well, but I bake so I'll wash the dishes and provide dessert. Soul Food, Chinese Food, Indian Food, Mexican and Italian. Thanks NOW I'M STARVING!!!!

MrsYoungie18 karma

Ok, I'll stop swooning. Real question: what is the ranking of the various CM characters? as in who outranks who?

shemarmoore55 karma

Hotch is the BOSS. Rossi is the wise Uncle. Pretty Boy is just pretty and way too smart, Blake is Mom, JJ is the sexy baby sister, Penelope is the fast talking, big hearted reminder that we are all human and Derek is the tough, intense gentle giant.

Anubisghost18 karma

Hi Shemar! Thanks for doing this. Is there any chance we might see some more pranks between Morgan and Reid?

shemarmoore53 karma

There's pranks between Shemar & Matthew all the time at work, as far as Morgan and Reid - it depends on what mood the writers are in - but YES, I will find a way to make you guys laugh and pick on Pretty Boy

SexyBabyGirl0916 karma

Hi Shemar, do you have a celebrity crush right now? i know you said you liked Jennifer Aniston back in the day so do you have a new one? I love you so much by the way <3 from Aba

shemarmoore96 karma

Hey Aba, All my celebrity crushes are married :-( ... I hope they are happy but if they had met me before they jumped the broom, they'd be happier than they've ever known and they would have some pretty babies.

Dayana_Filipova15 karma

Hi, Shemar! What song do you love to dance to?

shemarmoore50 karma

My favorite song right now when I wanna turn up is "Started from the bottom" by Drake


Can you dance? I plan on seeing you on dancing with that stars you know a lot of people you think it would be impossible accomplished it … it's a good idea … no really I'm kidding just thought I'd get a laugh out of you but if you consider it or offered it let us know?

shemarmoore33 karma

With a little wine in my system I can bring some old school silly moves to life. I'm no Chris Brown, but I'm a lot of fun to watch.

SammiShayna11 karma

Hey Mr. Moore! 1. I love you and Criminal Minds. I'm amped for the next season! So here's my question: who is your fave costar to work with? And again, I love you :)

shemarmoore24 karma

I'm lovin on you right back baby girl ... wanna wrestle?

edgarallenpotato11 karma

If you weren't an actor, what do you think you'd be doing?

shemarmoore16 karma

My original dream was to be a professional baseball player - I always dreamt of playing for the Boston Red Sox or the Oakland A's. I was really good growing up but not good enough. I'm a big believer that everything happens for a reason and cannot complain ever about the cards I've been dealt and the career and life that I'm blessed to have.

Legitlizzy10 karma

If you were to have a guest star on the show, who would you like to see there?

shemarmoore28 karma

It probably wouldn't be on CM because they are established movie stars. But I would love to share the screen with Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Jeffrey Wright

devoncarrots10 karma

Can you tell us more about "The Bounce Back" and what it's about?

shemarmoore27 karma

The Bounce Back is a heartfelt romantic dramedy which is a fun, sensitive and endearing reminder that we all want true love. Many of us have suffered heartache and heartbreak but if we can stay strong for and celebrate ourselves true love will always find us again. This movie is gonna make you laugh, it's gonna make you cry, it's gonna make you believe in yourself and be excited about falling in love all over again.

I think fan involvement is what makes this project so unique. Very often we count on our audience to merely see our finished product but with this process, they are part of the film. They aren't just helping fund it. They will be included in the process of making the movie through the entire process. I want my fans to feel as if they are apart of this project alongside the cast and crew - it doesn't matter if they gave $1 or $10,000. If they support me and this project, I want them to be part of this journey. I think that is a uniquely special opportunity that fans have never been given in the past and I think mine are loving being part of this ground breaking process.

yasmin_sato6 karma

Hey Shemar! So, besides Derek, is there any other character on Criminal Minds you'd like to play? Why?

shemarmoore11 karma

I'd love to see Derek go undercover in the storyline.

sjohn13625 karma

Do you listen to Howard Stern?

shemarmoore8 karma

I like that Howard Stern dances to his own drum with no apologies.

taramcdonnell4 karma

shemarmoore22 karma

Hey Tara, I miss the Y&R days and everybody that I got to work with. Without Y&R, I wouldn't have the career that I have today.

Alexandra2443 karma

Hi Baby Boy :) I have 2 questions.. 1. Isn't it sometimes hard to live with the stories you know from Criminal Minds in your daily life since you know they happend someday for real? How can you handle this? Don't you have sometimes nightmares or something like that?

  1. Will you restock anytime soon the "Baby Girl loose Tee Red" of your shop in an other size than XL?

And I wanted to tell you that it's great how much you support your mama and the National MS Society! Greetings from Germany :)

shemarmoore1 karma

Re-stocking is happening now. We will have the loose red tee in many new fun designs, sizes and cutie pie colors. Much love to my Baby Girls from Germany!!

bethyastra3 karma

hi Shemar :) i really love the Baby Girl line and the fact some money is given to the MS charity as my mum suffers from it. what inspired you to make the line? im hoping for a hat for my birthday on thursday :)

shemarmoore5 karma

The Baby Girl line is just a fun way to flirt and keep you ladies looking and feeling sexy while raising money for to help the fight to find a cure for my mother and millions of others that are affected by MS.
