Shemar Moore has been acting professionally for nearly 20 years but seems to have struck gold with Criminal Minds
. ETonline caught up with the heartthrob to talk about the success of the CBS drama, currently in its 10th season.
"I'm lucky, blessed, humbled and proud by it," he says. "It's really to the fans. They found, they stuck with us, they scream for us and they're there every week.
"Our writers come through with that twisted material," he adds. "I come in and kick down doors [and] flirt with my baby girl. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
What major changes can fans expect this season?
"I've got myself a girlfriend so [my character] Morgan might be getting a little more hanky panky," he teases.
But what about a real life romance? -- will Shemar settle down one day?
"I gotta give mama some grandbabies one day," he says. "I want to do it the right way but I definitely want to do it."
When he's not "kicking down doors" on Criminal Minds
, Shemar is raising money for multiple sclerosis research through his Baby Girl
clothing line. The 44-year-old actor's mother Marilyn
was diagnosed with MS in 1998 and since then has leveraged his fame to raise awareness of the disease. He's participated in the annual Bike MS ride for nine years in a row and raised $20-$30,000 this year alone.
"I don't make any money off Baby Girl," he explains. "It's made a lot of money and I'm grateful because that means that I can provide and donate to MS."
"Instead of just having a clothing line, it's a fun way to interact with the fans," he adds. "The fans get to interact with me and give back to something so powerful and necessary."
With Halloween just days away, there's a reason why Shemar's house is the place to trick-or-treat-- and it's not just the full-size candy bars
