This gorgeous man, dubbed "Big Sexy" by me and my friends, is Mr. Shemar Moore - is a talented actor best known for his role as Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds. He will soon be adding "Executive Producer" to his long list of accomplishments, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to help promote his newest project, "The Bounce Back."
""The Bounce Back" is a heartfelt romantic comedy about finding the courage to love after love has let you down.When I read “The Bounce Back” - that very same issue was at the core of the script and the character, Matthew Taylor. I saw a lot of myself in Matthew, although I've never written a book (but I’m thinking about it now, hint, hint). I felt a kindred spirit to what Matthew was going through and my own life. Matthew loses his wife, his first love and after a short recovery creates a best selling book and a system of survival in order to shield himself from the pain. He throws himself into a year long speaking tour.
That system of survival; his book and speaking tour, keeps him from falling in love again when he meets the perfect girl, the beautiful and zany Kristin Moreland. Matthew realizes that he has to renounce his book and the world he has created around it in order to take the big unknown plunge of letting himself fall in love again.
I think there is a wonderful poetry to that, the idea of risking it all for love. And I feel, in my heart, that is why we’re here on this planet. To love. After I put down the screenplay, “The Bounce Back,” I knew I had to make this movie simply because I believe in love all the way down to the fabric of my being.
