Shemar Moore announced earlier this year that he was leaving “Criminal Minds” after a long 11 seasons and of course, most of us more so mourned the departure of the actor’s hod body and chiseled face. The good news, we can now move on to a new hottie.

It was announced on Wednesday that Magic Mike star, Adam Rodriguez would be replacing Moore on the hit CBS series. Sounds like the perfect fit.

According to the network, Rodriguez will play special agent on the FBI Fugitive Task Force in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. “We have exciting story lines planned for his character and the entire Behavioral Analysis Unit team as we head into our 12th season,” executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer said in a statement.

Adam wrote on Instagram: “Just wanted to say how happy I am to be joining the cast of this great show! I look forward to working with the family of people involved in making this such a long standing hit and to entertaining all of the wonderful fans that have made it possible!”

She’s Gotta Have It: Is Ilfenesh Hadera Spike Lee’s New Muse?

Published

We all know Spike Lee loves working with the same actors over and over again. And in some cases new up-and-comers who go on to be Hollywood A-listers. Think Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson.

Now it seems it’s Ilfenesh Hadera’s turn. The actress of Ethiopian decent has worked with Spike Lee four times: in the 2011 Mike Tyson TV movie Da Brick, in 2013’s Oldboy, in Chiraq playing Ms. McCloud and in his upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It.

Hadera told us she believes it’s because of Lee’s commitment to diversity that he tends to hire the same actors multiple times.

“If you look at his body of work you see he’s worked with Rosario over and over, [John] Turturro over and over, Mekhi Phifer over and over so he finds talent, new talent and gives them a chance and if more directors did that maybe we would be more represented in the media … God bless him for that,” she said.

Now with 30+ years and countless films under his belt, Lee is bringing his first feature, She’s Gotta Have It, back to life, in a 10-episode Netflix binge debuting Nov. 23.

Hadera, who plays Opal Gilstrap in the series, told us Lee had hinted that he would be bringing his 1986 directorial debut to Netflix and wanted her to be apart of it.

“We had worked together a lot and he had been giving me little hints that this was in the works so I was like let me go back and watch [She’s Gotta Have It] again.”

Like the original, SGHI follows Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) a twenty-something woman living in Brooklyn, New York exploring her sexual identity as she juggles a host of colorful suitors.

As for if this is Hadera’s final time working with Lee, we think not. 2017 has already been an amazing year for the 5’10 beauty with roles on the big and small screen in Baywatch, Billions and Master Of None.
