Shemar Moore is seen on the set of Criminal Minds in Los Angeles on Wednesday (July 6). That's Criminal Minds producer/showrunner Erica Messer leaning into the car.
Production on Season 7 of the FBI drama officially kicked off this week. Check out some pics in the gallery of stars Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness, and A.J. Cook at a table reading.
While the show certainly deals with some pretty heavy topics, Mantegna told the Kansas City Star last week that he and his co-stars try to keep the atmosphere light on set:
"What people don't tend to understand is the experience of working on stuff doesn't necessarily parallel to what the material's about. When I'm making Criminal Minds, as grim as the material is, the atmosphere on the set is not like that at all. You are talking a family-like atmosphere where we all like each other and have a good time. It's only those moments when you are doing the material that it gets heavy and serious. I am spending far more time on a set being Joe than I am being David Rossi."
