He once revealed the opinion that his real-life mother, Marilyn, had on “Criminal Minds.”

SHEMAR MOORE’S CAREER

His career skyrocketed, though, after landing the role of Derek Morgan on “Criminal Minds.” In 2017, however, he left the show because he wanted to spend more time with his family.

Shemar’s excuse was questioned shortly after that because, only months after leaving “Criminal Minds,” he landed the leading role in the action-packed TV show “S.W.A.T.

In his new project, the actor plays Sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, a former Marine who leads the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit of the S.W.A.T. in Los Angeles.

The third season of the show is currently broadcasting, but it is still unclear whether CBS will renew it for a fourth one.

WISHING DEBBIE ALLEN A HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Shemar’s on-screen mother is none other than Debbie Allen, known for portraying dance teacher Lydia Grant on the TV series “Fame.” Apart from that, she has worked in different projects such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Quantum Leap,” and “Good Times.”

Allen turned 70 on January 16, and Shemar took to Instagram to share a couple of photos posing next to her while wishing her a happy birthday.

THE OPINION OF SHEMAR MOORE’S MOM ON “CRIMINAL MINDS”

Speaking of moms, Shemar once revealed the opinion that his real-life mother, Marilyn, had on “Criminal Minds.”

Even though she has always supported him, she was not as thrilled as everybody else when her son got the role of Derek Morgan.

During a 2008 interview with Ellen DeGeneres in her show, Shemar shared that Marylin told him that she liked the soap opera “a lot better” because there was “so much blood” on “Criminal Minds.”

Marilyn also told him that she never allowed him to carry guns! Shemar’s mom probably got used to watching her son doing all those dangerous scenes on “Criminal Minds,” so the things he does on “S.W.A.T.” might not scare her that much.
