LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Criminal Minds" actor Shemar Moore is using Kickstarter to enlist financial support for his new film project, "The Bounce Back".  The goal is to raise $1.5 million of the film's $3 million budget through the site, with the film's producer/star committing to personally match the total amount raised on the popular fundraising platform.

"The Bounce Back" is a heartfelt romantic comedy about finding the courage to love after love has let you down.  Nadine Velazquez from the Oscar nominated "Flight" is set to co-star in the film opposite Moore. In addition to starring in "Criminal Minds" which is going in to their 9th season, and still rating first in its time period for both households and viewers, he also co-starred in Tyler Perry's hit "Diary of a Mad Black Woman".

"Kickstarter allows filmmakers the creative ability to make their films the way they envision, and to come together with fans to show Hollywood what ideas interest audiences," says Moore.  "We're hoping for support from the amazing audience that's been so loyal in their support of 'Criminal Minds.'"
