Shemar Moore Cast in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’

by Stephen Andrew for Pop Culture

S.W.A.T. star Shemar Moore just landed a new movie role, with the actor revealing he’s been cast in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Moore took to Instagram to share a photo of himself from the film’s set, posing with fellow cast members Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, and James Marsden. At this time, it is unclear what Moore’s role in the film will be.

The first Sonic the Hedgehog was released in early 2020 and was a big hit with both audiences and critics. It earned nearly $320 million at the box office, and it has a positive approval rating of 63% on film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. “Fittingly fleet and frequently fun, Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game-inspired adventure the whole family can enjoy and a fine excuse for Jim Carrey to tap into the manic energy that launched his career,” reads the site’s Critics Consensus. Moore is new to the Sonic film franchise cast, which includes the aforementioned returning stars, as well as Ben Schwartz (Parks and Rec), as the voice of Sonic, and Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik.

Moore is often most well-known for playing Derek Morgan on the CBS crime procedural Criminal Minds for 11 seasons (and later returning as a special guest in Seasons 12 and 13). He then went on to another CBS crime series, S.W.A.T., which recently ended its fourth season. The new season had to shoot mostly during the worst time of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, something which Moore spoke about with CBS NY back in November.

After being asked what the experience had been like, Moore replied, “It’s a little strange. We’re making it happen and I’m very proud. I got the information that we were the first show to come back as far as network television; the first one-hour drama to come back.”

He went on to say, “It’s different, you got all these regulations, we’re getting COVID tested constantly. It was supposed to be three days a week but literally because S.W.A.T. is so hands-on with the action, cops chasing bad guys, and wrestling bad guys to the ground that we get tested pretty much every day. I’ve been getting a little q-tip up my nose then I have to spit into a cup. Before we show up to work, we get our temperature taken; it’s different.”

Shemar Moore on Struggles of Growing up Biracial – Racial Discrimination and Bullying

Shemar Moore once revealed the struggles of growing up biracial, with many people often asking him why his skin color is the way it is.

by Monica Otayza for AmoMama.com

The “Criminal Minds” actor opened up about what it was like growing up as a biracial kid in Oakland, and how this affected his chances of ever being in a relationship. Despite the challenges, he made sure to rise above them and pursue his Hollywood dreams.

Growing up, he had to move from country to country. He first lived in Denmark, before moving to Bahrain, and then to Ghana. Ultimately, he moved back to America and grew up in the country. It was in America that he had his first encounter with racism.

When he was only six-years-old, Moore shared that everyone tried to make him feel different in school. It turns out, it was all because of his appearance.

“Why does your hair look like that, why is your skin that color, how come your mom is white, how can you be cousins with so-and-so. That’s how I learned I was good at baseball, because kids would chance me after school.”

Although Shemar wanted to become a professional baseball player, his dreams were cut short after he got injured while playing in college. That was when he decided to pursue a career in Hollywood despite his family going against this decision.

When the time is right, however, he’d like to settle down and get married only once.


After more than two decades, Shemar is now a staple in Hollywood television. While he would like to settle down and get married one day, he would like to be settled down and secured by then.

“It’s no accident that I’m not married and don’t have kids yet. Because despite what I’ve achieved in my career, I’m always wondering when somebody’s gonna tap me on the shoulder and say, ‘Okay, the gig is up.'”

To him, the scenario of him having to let his family go through the uncertainty of his career possibly ending is something he doesn’t want to do. When the time is right, however, he’d like to settle down and get married only once.

Recently, Shemar Moore showed off his new “salt and pepper” look while remaining in quarantine. His fans swooned over his new look, saying he looks better than ever despite having to go through the heartbreaking experience of losing his mom.

At 50 years old, Moore does not look his age at all. Besides his youthful face, he is also in incredible shape, and that’s something his fans admire about him.

Shemar Moore honours Kristoff St. John at Daytime Emmy Awards

by Katie Scott for Global News

Shemar Moore took a moment on Sunday night at the Daytime Emmy Awards to honour the late actor Kristoff St. John.

St. John was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Feb. 3. His cause of death was ruled an “accident” and was listed as hypertrophic heart disease, which the Mayo Clinic defines as a condition in which the “heart muscle becomes abnormally thick,” making it harder for the heart to pump blood.

Before presenting the last award of the night for Outstanding Drama Series, Moore took a moment to bring the audience to their feet with a tribute to St. John.

“I want to do something that’s very important to me and very important to a lot of us,” Moore began. “This year, we had to say goodbye to a good man, a great man, a special individual, Mr. Kristoff St. John.”

He expressed how thankful he was for Young and the Restless and its cast for paying tribute to St. John “the right way.”

“The tribute that aired this past week on The Young and the Restless that said goodbye to Kristoff and his character, Neil Winters, was so beautifully, beautifully done,” he said of his onscreen brother, “and I know Kristoff is proud of all of us.”

He went on to speak about how St. John “changed the game.”

“He opened the door for so many of us, myself and a lot of people out there, whether you know it or not. So as you continue, young actors, carry his torch with pride. I have a life but I don’t have this life and I damn sure don’t have this career without Kristoff St. John in my life and dancing with that man for 10 years strong and being his friend for over 20,” Moore said.

“Kristoff was my friend. He was my brother. He was my mentor. He was my acting coach. He was my therapist,” the Criminal Minds actor continued. “I thought I was the goofiest dude in the world. He got me beat. That was one goofy, goofy man. But he was so professional. In my opinion, he is the most iconic, popular, thorough, professional, talented, big-hearted, African-American actor in soap opera history.”

Moore said that St. John was “up in heaven now with his son.”

“They’re dancing and they’re laughing,” he said. “And Kristoff wants us to continue to celebrate and celebrate each other. He wants us to step up and do the work. Get honoured for your work. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Make sure you laugh and have a good time.”

He concluded by telling the audience how St. John is missed and will always be remembered.

“Rest in peace, keep dancing and we will never, ever forget you, my brother,” Moore said.

After announcing that Young and the Restless had won for Outstanding Drama Series, Moore said: “Kristoff, this is for you, baby.”

Moore returned to Young and the Restless for two episodes, which aired on April 25 and 26, as St. John’s character Neil’s brother, Malcolm Winters.

A special aired on April 29 that paid tribute to the late actor and his nearly 28-year tenure on Young and the Restless with clips from the show and current and former cast members sharing memories of him, including Victoria Rowell, who played Neil’s wife Drucilla for a number of years.

Shemar Moore (Malcolm Winters) Shares Inside Joke He Had With Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters)

by Christy Aho for Daily Soap Dish

The Young and the Restless spoilers indicate that if there was anyone who was as devastated as we were about Kristoff St. John’s death, it is Shemar Moore. Moore has made quite a name for himself in the world of television. Moore played St. John’s brother on the Young and the Restless. He told sources that the two of them had a bond just like brothers in real life too.

Moore had so many great memories with St. John. He said “Kristoff, what I believe, he carried me through this career. You know, I had to earn my way to develop this career, but he really got me started and embraced me and rooted for me and told me that anything was possible.” He was even happy to share with sources a running joke that the two of them had together.

During their many appearances together, one of them would always come in on the other one’s shoulders. Moore said this was because St. John carried him through life and his career. It became a hilarious, yet heartwarming joke that was carried out through their entire friendship.

On the Young and the Restless, Moore’s character, Malcolm, delivers a beautifully written eulogy at Neil’s memorial service. Josh Griffith, head writer on the Young and the Restless, wrote it from the bottom of his heart. Moore had just recently met Griffin, but he said that the eulogy couldn’t have been more perfect for him and he felt like he would have written those same words about St. John himself.

Moore was happy to be back on the Young and the Restless and wishes that it could have been for happier circumstances.

We know just how sad the memorial episodes have been for us and the fans of the show. St. John had such a great impact on the show and the cast and crew. He will be forever remembered in his role as Neil and the cast has spent a lot of time with the episodes that share what a great person he was.
