Criminal Minds' Shemar Moore: "The Soap Opera Days Were Like High School"


Mercury caught up with former The Young and the Restless star Shemar Moore, who was on a location shoot for Criminal Minds, his hit CBS crime drama, and asked about his time on soaps.  He responded,

I've had a lot of success in 16 years, but in some ways it still feels brand-new because there's still so much I haven't done," he says. "I treat my career like school. The soap opera days were like high school. I got my diploma and graduated.

"Now I'm in college, and hopefully I'll go to grad school (feature films) and catch the bus with Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith and the others."
