Shemar Moore to Star in 'S.W.A.T.' Drama Pilot at CBS

Shemar Moore may be out at Criminal Minds, but he’s not done doing business with CBS.

The 46-year-old has signed on to star in a S.W.A.T. reboot for the network.

Per Deadline:

Written by [Aaron Rahsaan] Thomas and directed by [Justin] Lin, “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 by Samuel L. Jackson in the 2003 movie directed by Clark Johnson.

Congratulations, Shemar!
