CRIMINAL MINDS TRIP: SHEMAR MOORE JOINS US FOR LUNCH.


Criminal Minds Trip Day One: I told you previously that filming was behind on the set my first day there. As the actors were released from shooting for their lunch breaks they came into Craft Services to eat. I was already well into my visit with Matthew Gray Gubler and A.J. Cook when Shemar Moore entered the room. First let me say that this man immediately owns any room he enters. I don't mean that in any type of fangirlish way. It is just a feeling in the air when he walks into a room. As he was walking over to the table AJ called his attention to the shirt she had made and as Shemar walked over laughing to hug her I prayed that he didn't hurt her. She is really just that petite and he is a big man. Then he turned towards me. Instinct kicks in around Shemar and as I rose from my chair with my hand out to greet him he let loose: "Why does your blog have more pictures of pretty boy over there (points to Matthew) than it does of me?" Okay everyone repeat after me now........mortified. I started babbling that that wasn't true and we all love him on my blog and then he burst into a laugh and told me he was playing with me, that he loves the blog and......"come here and let me give you a hug".

I do not care if you have the perfect husband, boyfriend, lover, girlfriend, etc......until you have been hugged by Shemar Moore you have not been hugged. Please believe me when I say that this was just the start of my fun with Shemar. Later we will talk about what happens when you sit at a table with Shemar, Matthew and A.J. Also, Thomas Gibson enjoys his 8 minute lunch break and then Kirsten rules the roost! :)

What a tease! I bet that is a fun place to work: it sounds like everybody has a great time.

jen said...

I love that he has a sense of humor and is gracious and kind even more than I love how the man looks, which is really saying something. Damn! And here I've told myself all my life that pretty boys were probably not worth knowing because they, no doubt, had hearts and souls of shit and were as dumb as a bag of rocks and then you go and prove me wrong.

Macmillk said...

HAH! I would've died....probably sputtered a bit first:
"But.....you see.....umm.......*faint*"

He looks like such a powerful man, all over. Those eyes, oh those eyes.

Now I just need to Photoshop myself into that gracious hug.......

Just kidding of course, I'd never do that ( well, at least not publicly....*whistles*.....).

Looking forward to more pictures of Shemar.

nebula said...

He sounds like a real sweetheart as well.

And it looks like a Shemarhug is good hug.

Lori said...

And when you thought it just couldn't get any better . . .

Leah W said...

Ha! You should have asked him if he was counting the number of pictures of him, then comparing it to everyone else.

shemar's girl said...

What a great meeting you had with him. I bet he does own any room he goes into.

slashgirl said...

It's so good to know that someone as gorgeous as Shemar is such a sweetheart; gotta love a man with a sense of humour! *G*

And I certainly wouldn't mind being hugged by Shemar, either...mmm. *G*

You know I'm loving hearing about your trip, Jill...and that I'm looking forward to more.

(And poor Thomas, only 8 minutes for his lunch? They must have been really behind!)

Lin said...

Why do I think that once you've been teased by Shemar, you're officially part of the CM family?

He sounds wonderful!

(Now off to round up my "why didn't you *tell* us Shemar Moore was in it?" friends ... )

Anonymous said...

mmmm. he's gorgeous. And sounds nice as well.

Jan & Quentin said...

What a cool guy! I'm not surprised in the least that he's a nice person with a sense of humor. Glad you got a big ol' Shemar hug! And a picture!

erin said...

I am glad that he has such a great sense of humor!!

christy said...

You got a Shemar hug! Can I hate you just a little bit. Only kidding but I would love a hug from him.

Macmillk said...

Why is it I keep coming back to this picture? I've got two large papers and a presentation to have completed by Thursday....Shemar isn't conducive to learning......


Oh those eyes...........

Katze said...

i think he is cute!
did you meet Paget Brewster too? i was sad when elle was leaving the show but now im a paget-fan!

Ulle said...

Haha, he definately sounds like a fun and warm guy.

Lee said...

Shemar, Shemar, Shemar...you can tell him Lee said that pretty boy is "the reason for the season" in her book but that he ranks a close 2nd. What an amazing man. I told my girlfriend once, who LOVES Shemar, "You can't like both Matthew and Shemar, i mean you HAVE to choose..." and she looked at me quite seriously and says, "Then I'm quite perplexed by your decision." Like I said, she LOVES Shemar.

LOL,
Lee :)

lucy said...

Oh. My.

He is just fine.

Please can we see She-MORE of Shemar?

Melanie said...

Hey, I'm new to the blog.

I am so jealous of your experience on the set! The cast in general is the best out there, in my opinion.

With Shemar, I would have just studdered like an idiot. And MGG's awesomeness? I would have been freaking. I'm a huge fan of his.

I can't wait to see more from your blog. Oh, and I'm Melanie. 22 year old semi-college student from Ohio. Hi.

sylvia said...

It is great how well he gets on with his cast mates. Very good to like the people you work long hours with.

latasha said...

Now all I will think about tonight when I go to sleep are Shemar hugs. Yum. That is fine with me.

sindee said...

Lovely pic once again... bet you enjoyed the hug.

Lin said...

Hey, Jill --

If I whine really loud, can I talk you into posting a *little* bit faster? I'd offer bribes, but you've already had Mandy-hug AND Shemar-hug, so I don't have anything to top that.

I know I should be patient but ... I'm not. This is great stuff and I want more now. And I'm dying to know what Kris and Kirsten have to say, and I don't think they'll update their blogs until you get there ...

Um ... cookies? I make really good cookies. Treasures from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame gift shop? A '91 Chevy Lumina? No? Okay, back to the whining, then ... ;-)

Mela said...

Awwww.....look at my handsome star!! Cute pic.

LOL @ you being mortified. Major cool points to Shemar for making you feel welcome. I can't wait to see what else your going to add.

tammy said...

Agreeing with everyone else. The CM set seems like such a fun place to work. Shemar is gorgeous, but he needs to start tackling again soon. I need "action man". Oh, and my mom LURVES him!

Tooks said...

You write faster than I can keep up, haha! Gotta list all my responses to the last series of updates I just read

1) Matthew looks like a kid at Christmas with those gifts - I'm so glad he liked them all.

2) A.J. with the tee-shirt? LOL - too funny!!!

3) Lucky you both getting teased and hugged by Shemar! ;-)

4) Can't wait to see what happens next!

Titania said...

Shemar looks like a big ol' teddy bear! You'd never guess that he's the same guy who runs after and tackles all those bad guys!!!

Ambra said...

I'm not surprised Shemar has a commanding prescence in person because he certainly does on the show. This is a bit OT but if I don't mention it now, I'll probably forget about it. I was thinking it might be nice for the group here to take up a collection of some sort to send Shemar if he does the MS bike-a-thon again. It's great that he had the cast's and crew's support last time and maybe we can throw in a little fan support as well!

sherlockette said...

The “scenery” on this blog is great. I appreciate Shemar’s contributions to the show. Now I mean his acting…! He plays the macho cop very well. Give us more!

pitiponk13004 said...

I must admit that ... Shemar Moore is gorgeous !!! And he sounds funny !

Alex said...

lol! what a great sense of humor! if it wasn't obvious before, it really is now, these actors have such good chemistry that it makes the show so enjoyable and they are all so funny off screen too! oh yeah, and Shemar, he's pretty darn good looking! lol

CMF said...

Hey, CriminalMindsFan here, wow, what a great guy. His eyes are just so beautiful and mezmorizing. He also has a great sense of humor. That "pretty boy" just seems like something Morgan would say on CM which proves they really do bring themselves to the role. Poor TG only getting 8 minutes for lunch. Man that looks like a great hug (**daydreams about it**).

Can't wait for more. Thanks a ton Jill!!! :)

Leonada said...

What a great picture. No surprise here how truly gorgeous he is! :0)

Anonymous said...

Oh my God
I wish I was as lucky as you!
I love your blog and I love Shemar!

blue said...

God willing someday I will get the chance to set that teddy bear hug too. Oh, btw, WOW, he look so good in your pics. Just awsome. beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Anonymous said...

It just thrills me that these people that I am so fond of on television are actually as nice as they seem to be. And you can see how much they actually like each other, and how well they get along together. It's just wonderful to see.

Way to get hugged!!!!!!!!!!!

My dear Shemar,you said it yourself. MGG is a pretty "boy." While I love him to pieces, you are a MAN, the preference of more mature tastes. If it were my blog, there would only be pictures of you, but alas....And if you woke up tomorrow looking more like Forrest Whitaker, I would still respect you for your remarkable talent. I just wouldn't post pictures of you. Forrest is a great actor, but not HOT!

carol said...

I love my boyfriend but I would enjoy Shemar's hugs for sure.

Shemar is my "lobster"

Jean said...

Jill has been Shemar-ed...lucky, lucky lady...

crochet95 said...

Again, Shemar sounds great---with such Grace...beyond what words can say. :)
