While we all love him as Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless, or Derek on Criminal Minds, Shemar Moore is readying another TV comeback announced today via Deadline!

The Daytime Emmy-Award winning actor is now set to star in a new drama pilot for the network which has made him a household name, CBS.  Moore will star in S.W.A.T.inspired by the 2003 Sony movie that was based on the 1975 ABC series produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg.

In concept: S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Moore), torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.  Moore’s Harrelson, exuding calmness but always ready for action, has all the ability to become a leader – he’s just not happy with the reason he just became one. The role was played previously by Samuel L. Jackson in the 2003 movie directed by Clark Johnson.

The pilot will be executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, as well Shemar Moore will serve as a producer on S.W.A.T.

Excited to learn that Shemar may be back on his way to primetime TV? Do you hope he will come back for another return visit to The Young and the Restless sometime soon? Comment below!

((a video you can’t see lol) In S.W.A.T, a presumably –frequently shirtless Moore– will play Daniel ‘Hondo’ It’s a plum role for the 46-year-old longtime actor, who told TVGuide.com as he was departing Criminal Minds last year that he was “looking for his Homeland” i.e. a place where his talents — and, we have to assume and hope — those splendid pecs and abs can shine– The original “S.W.A.T.” series, produced by Aaron Spelling, ran for two seasons on ABC in the mid ’70s. The 2003… Read more »

I liked the series when it ran back in the 70s. The movie was pretty good. I am going to tune in to see Shemar take this new character although I don’t expect to see it run as long as “Criminal Minds” has if it does get a green light to go ahead to series.

i hope everything works out with this reboot because the reboot of “ironside” and “rush hour” didn’t do so well…………………….

GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Addresses Why She Was Not a Part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s ‘Alexis-Centric’ 25th Anniversary Episode

For the past several weeks, savvy General Hospital fans were wondering why on earth was Alexis’ best friend, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), was not a part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s (Alexis) 25th anniversary episode of the ABC daytime drama series, which centered around Alexis saying goodbye to those near and dear before she goes to Pentonville to serve a prison sentence.

After all, Diane and Alexis have been through so much together, that it seemed like a glaring omission. Was Hennesy not asked back for the episode?  The answer came in the form of Hennesy herself via in a response to a fan’s tweet on her being MIA from the episode.

As it turns out, the ever-busy Hennesy was shooting a film in Atlanta and was not available at the time of the tape date of Grahn’s special episode.

 

Carolyn tweeted: “Not their fault, my dear. I was off filming on Atlanta!!! Cuz you know Diane wouldn’t have missed it!”  That came in response to this: “Watched the big @NancyLeeGrahn ep of #GH and I’m perplexed that there was no Diane! @carolynhennesy One of the most fun TV female friendships and she wasn’t there to send her off? Come on you guys @GeneralHospital”

Mystery solved! Carolyn would have gladly been at the GH set that day in a heartbeat, if she could have.

So, happy to know that GH did not forget about Diane for the Alexis-Centric episode, but had to work around it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
