The season 3 premiere of “S.W.A.T.” is just around the corner, and that means Shemar Moore is back taking down bad guys while looking good doing it.
While catching up with ET Canada correspondent Keshia Chante, the actor assures us that there will be tons of action this season and a new love interest for his character, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson.
“You know what’s nice about ‘S.W.A.T.’ is that we’re a thrill ride first, and when people hear that theme song they know it’s going to be some action packed craziness going on,” he explains.
“But we do get topical and we do deal with issues that are going on and sometimes we just have a good time and deal with some crazy bad guys that we gotta go chase down and it’s fun to see how we get it done.”
So, what’s in store for his character this season?
“I’m probably not supposed to say this, but Hondo’s got a little love interest,” Moore reveals. “Hondo gonna get some! But she making it hard on me. Trust me, she making it hard on me.”
Not only is the new season of the drama series coming up, but so is Moore’s milestone 50th birthday, and although he tells Chante that he doesn’t want to think about it, the actor admits that he’s happy with how his life has played out so far.
“I actually feel great and I like myself getting older. I like how I feel, I like the wisdom, I like the life experience,” he says.
“I’m proud of myself in the sense that everything that I can build that I need. Everything that I need in my life I feel like I’ve accomplished. Anything more would just be icing on the cake.,” Moore adds.
“What’s missing is the one piece of the puzzle that I can’t control by myself and I really am looking forward to that chapter of my life where I fall in love and have a partner in crime and then eventually a family. So I’m 49 but George Clooney gives me hope cause he didn’t make it happen till he was 52.”
