While enjoying some time off from the set of their hit series S.W.A.T., co-stars Shemar Moore and David Lim get competitive during a cornhole competition.

“Dis how we do it round Dese Parts!!!” S.W.A.T.’s Shemar Moore writes in the Instagram post, which dates back to April 2021. The video features him throw sacks in the hole four times. “It’s your boy in his PJ’s!”

The S.W.A.T. star was also seen gloating about his shots. “This is my house. This is my game. I’m in my PJ’s. Stay ready!” 

Along with David Lim, Shemar Moore also had S.W.A.T. tech adviser Odie Gallop present at the corn hole game. According to People, Moore also invited American Cornhole League pros Try and Burchfield and Noah Wooten as well. Moore’s teammates had an Instagram account dedicated to their team called @swatcornhole. The account’s description reads, “Chasing bad guys by day, slinging bean bags by night.”

Shemar Moore Talks S.W.A.T. Filming During Pandemic 

During an interview with CBS New York in November 2020, Shemar Moore shares details about how filming of S.W.A.T.’s season 4 went during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’re getting COVID tested constantly,” Moore states. He also says that S.W.A.T. is so hands-on with action that they get tested pretty much every day.

“I’ve been getting a little q-tip up my nose then I have to spit into a cup. Before we show up to work, we get our temperature taken; it’s different.”

Shemar states that while it’s been rough with all the safety protocols, the S.W.A.T. cast and crew have been embracing everything and they’d rather be safe. “We’d rather just keep us all safe. We’re following these protocols, hoping, waiting being optimistic about a vaccine.”

He also says he hopes that the S.W.A.T. audience doesn’t notice the sacrifices that we had to make in the show’s storytelling. “The action of the show doesn’t change. You got the car chases. You got that ‘na na na na.’ You got that action.”

Shemar Says He’s Proud of the Cast & Crew Being Woke 

Also during the interview with CBS New York, Shemar Moore states that he’s proud that the S.W.A.T. cast and crew are being conscious.

“We’re entertaining people but we’re also talking about real things,” Moore explains. He also says that he is black wearing an LAPD uniform on TV. 

“If you look at the news, there’s this divide,” the S.W.A.T. star shares. “This tension. There’s this fear between civilians and police.”

Shemar also admits that he felt it was necessary that the S.W.A.T. cast not to ignore what was going on in the world. “You see in our first episode, we talk about George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor. We talk about racial injustice. We’re not picking sicks, we’re just saying hey this is what it is.”
