The Young and the Restless star Shemar Moore was an original cast member on Criminal Minds until his departure from the show last year. Now he’s returning to the show for a guest appearance!
Back for Morgan
Moore (ex-Malcolm Winters) is set to bring his Criminal Minds character Derek Morgan back to the CBS drama on May 10th for its season finale, according to TV Line.
“In the season ender, Morgan brings the BAU a lead in the case against serial killer/escaped convict Mr. Scratch, who has wreaked havoc, sometimes of a quite personal nature, all season,” TV Line reported.
The BAU is the Behavior Analysis Unit, the organization the series focuses on, as it profiles those who commit crimes.
A S.W.A.T. Member Too
In other career news, Moore joined the cast of the upcoming pilot for S.W.A.T., another criminal-justice-inspired show. That one is based on the 2003 film by the same name.
Much Beloved in Daytime
He may have been a central character on Criminal Minds, but Y&R fans remember this daytime icon as the criminally handsome and charming Malcolm Winters, a role he played for eight years. Who can forget Malcolm’s epic romance with Drucilla (ex-Victoria Rowell)? Moore won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Malcolm in 2000.
Daytime aficionados will also remember his excited announcement of a momentous occasion in daytime history: when Susan Lucci won the Daytime Emmy for Outsanding Actress in a Drama Series in 1999 after 18 consecutive losses!
Baby Girl of the Day
Moore also runs Baby Girl of the Day, a charity that raises awareness about Multiple Sclerosis.
