Hollywood, CA. 2017 – What’s buzzzing in the La La land news? Shemar Moore! Shemar’s fans, homies and baby girls (as he calls them) are waiting patiently for the T.V premiere of the new S.W.A.T series directed by Justin Lin. Most people may think this is just a typical reboot series however, Shemar has expressed to his fans that this is much more than that. SWAT tackles current issues that are happening in the world today. Moore plays the role of #HONDO (Daniel Harrelson). HONDO is a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant whose torn between loyalty to the streets and his duty to his fellow officers. He’s tasked with the responsibility to run a highly-trained unit that’s the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles. One can imagine how relate-able this show may be to some, especially in this current age of violence, chaos and confusion.
As many Moore fans know, Shemar faced many challenges himself growing up, as he is bi-racial. That has never stopped Shemar from doing anything. He openly talks about how he is proud and accepts all areas of his race. With the increasingly high tensions in the world today regarding racism, as well as other highly explosive controversial topics, SWAT will no doubt touch on some very sensitive topics. Loyalty is royalty and in my own opinion, many of us humans are confused about what loyalty really is and means. HONDO will have to make some rough decisions.
Shemar Moore takes the lead in this show. Although he is part of team, just as he was in the T.V show Criminal Minds, this time Moore is the leader. From his social media comments you can see how serious he is about taking not only this show but his own personal career to a higher level. Shemar Moore has passion, drive and purpose when it comes to his career. He’s spent over 22 years in the entertainment industry and he’s not slowing down now! He’s true to himself and true to his fans. His homies, fans and baby girls are waiting with bated breaths to see if he delivers what he’s promised. No doubt he will, as he has been training hard and embracing the role of HONDO with 100 percent focus.
