The handsome and sexy star of the hit show Criminal Minds, agent Derek Morgan, played by Shemar Moore has accepted the offer to return to where he got his start as Malcolm Winters on the #1 soap The Young and the Restless.
He played the half brother of Neil Winters(Kristoff St John) and biological father of Lily Winters Ashby(Christel Kahlil) after a night spent with Neil’s wife Dru Winters(Victoria Rowell). Moore appeared as a series regular for 11 years (1994–2002 and 2004–2005), and the role earned him a Daytime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2000. Watch a clip here.
Shemar happily stated on his return to Y&R “:I’m still praising Soap Jesus” and “I hope it’s not the only time I can do this. I hope they write [the episodes] in a way that maybe this is something I can do from time to time. A lot of people get successful and it’s like their soap days never happened”. BRAVO!
Shemar has a Facebook page where he keeps his fans up to date on his life “.My firsrt HOME...my BEGINNING...20 YRS AGO my dream came true....HEEEEE'S BACK!!!! Malcolm Winters RETURNS home ....SEPT. 10 & 11#YOUNGANDTHERESTLESS .....@CBSDAYTIME #ShemarReturns2YR”

Nothing but love to her and my Y&R Family that helped me get my career started!!!! I'll be BACK ON Y&R FOR TWO EPISODES.. SEPTEMBER 10th and 11th... Excited to Go Home n see my Old Friends.”.
Several years into his acting career, Marilyn, Shemar's mother, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Shemar told People magazine: "She's always been superwoman, but now she's met her kryptonite."
He now sells his ‘Baby Girl’ sexy clothes in all sizes, in order to raise money for MS “BABY GIRL gear...SEXY n SASSY!!!! For ALL my STRONG.. CONFIDENT...BEAUTIFUL and SILLY ...BABY GIRLS!!!! LET'S CONQUER MS TOGETHER!!!! Get involved...join the BABY GIRL NATION ..get your gear at: SHOP.SHEMARMOORE.COM today!!!! #RT #MS #LIFE”
He also rides in an MS 150 Bike Tour (now Bike MS) to bring attention to MS and to raise more money for the cause.
Shemar is also just finishing his new movie “The Bounce Back” where he stars as a relationship guru with a best selling book on a whirlwind promotional tour, when he meets a fellow relationship expert who thinks he's nothing more than a charlatan. Their professional rivalry gets complicated when they unexpectedly fall in love.
As you can see Shemar is a very busy man, but has the time to come back to the genre that made him famous and loved by fans of all of his endeavors.
Shemar Moore is a man totally focused on his career but makes time for his causes and for the people he loves. He is a well rounded individual with quirky thoughts and a fitness regime that would bring down bigger men than him. He is thoughtful and sweet and a person who does not forget his past but chooses to honor it.
