Joe and Shemar Celebrate at TCA Press Tour Party

Joe Mantegna and Shemar Moore by the TCA Press Tour Party

Fortis WatchesIf you’re a network, producer, critic or actor in television, then the place to be is at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour in July. Here the networks announce their new shows and schedules in the never-ending race to be the ratings king. During this time the press has the opportunity to interview the players, including the creators, writers and stars of the show all in one place. And with announcements come the parties.

On July 17, CBS/CW and Showtime were the hosts, where Criminal Minds stars Joe Mantegna and Shemar Moore came out to have some fun. The show is about a group of profilers who keep tabs on dangerous criminals in order to anticipate and stop them before they strike again.


Veteran actor Mantegna plays David Rossi, an FBI BAU Supervisory Special Agent who came out of early retirement to rejoin the BAU. Mantegna is a multi-talent who acts, writes, produces, plays music and even does voice work, most notably for The Simpsons as Fat Tony.

As usual Mantegna was a good sport with the press, answering questions and posing for pictures. He looked dapper wearing a suit with an open collar. Around his wrist was spotted a Fortis B-42 Diver watch to complement his outfit.

Mantegna mugged it up with co-star Shemar Moore in some fun pictures posing as if they were holding guns (top of page). As FBI BAU Supervisory Special Agent Derek Morgan on “Criminal Minds”, Moore is a black belt in judo and runs FBI self-defense classes in addition to his profiling work. Before landing the role on Criminal Minds Moore worked as a model and was a regular on The Young and the Restless .

Like his buddy Mantegna, Moore is press friendly and had a good time at the party, posing for pictures and granting interviews. His style of dress differed from Mantegna’s. He was more street cool in a black short-sleeved shirt with a leather vest over it and a black hat. Like Mantegna, he also sported a watch, a GV2 Fiamme.
