Shemar Moore On Why His 'Criminal Minds' Character Doesn't Do Romance (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 20th 2011 4:00PM
On 'Criminal Minds,' Shemar Moore plays Derek Morgan, an FBI agent in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. Moore went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about his tough-guy character and how the show's writers incorporate real-life crimes into its scripts. He also explained to Kit Hoover why viewers shouldn't expect to see Morgan involved in a love story anytime soon.

Moore said he enjoys playing Morgan because of all the "bad-ass" stuff he gets to do. "Derek Morgan's looking for the fight," Moore said. "He's a guy who kicks down doors, is the first one in a burning building and the last one to leave. He doesn't like when the little guy gets picked on."

That tough-guy stuff is all well and good, but 'Access' host Kit Hoover would like to see Morgan add a little love to his life. Moore cautioned that she shouldn't hold her breathe waiting for Morgan to get a romantic plotline. There's a true-to-life reason for that, though. "To chase down a serial criminal, you have 72 hours. So basically, there ain't no time for hanky-panky. Ain't nobody between the sheets. So I don't know if you're going to see too many love scenes from Derek Morgan on 'Criminal Minds.'" Sorry, ladies.

I think that Derek and Garcia really do love one another in a way that cannot be matched by anything else and in the future when the show has run it's course (the very far future) it will be revealed. I also hope that the director gets the bug removed from her ass when she is in treatment and leaves the BAU alone. I love Criminal Minds because of the way the characters work together to form the family that is needed to find these horrible monsters, I hate the soap opera BS the team has to wade through to get the job done, but then I get that is what makes the show so realistic.

Awesome. At least there's no risk of of him having a relationship with Emily. Thank God! I wouldn't like to see Derek and Prentiss as a couple. Talk about creepy!
