CRIMINAL MINDS: SHEMAR & MATTHEW
Criminal Minds: Reprinted WITH permission from TV Guide: Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore was hit by a car while riding his bike on August 1, Moore’s rep, Staci Wolfe, confirms to TVGuideMagazine.com. “His leg was broken, but otherwise he’s ok,” she says. According to reports, he was rushed to a local hospital and is now recuperating at home.
Moore, who plays Special Agent Derek Morgan, is currently shooting the fifth season of the crime procedural.
“I know for the show that Joe Mantegna will be filling in for scenes. I don’t think any other decisions have been made because it just happened, they’re just looking at what they need to film for the rest of the episode. They’re just starting their second episode,” said a CBS rep for the show.
The rep also says that Matthew Gray Gubler also recently had surgery, which had to be written into the first episode back. “You won’t see much running from the cast,” the rep joked.
