He went on to earn his BA degree from this school, and during this time he performed for two summers at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. He filmed many commercials during his early career, and in 2000 when he moved to Los Angeles, he reunited with his agent from this time, Rachelle Ryan. He is best friends with fellow actor Zachary Levi, and the two of them co-own their own production company, Coattails Entertainment. Aside from films and TV shows, he has also been in two music videos: 'Waking Up In Vegas' for Katy Perry, and 'It's Not Christmas Without You' for Katharine McPhee. He married Kineret Karen Ben Yishay on New Year's Day in 2009, though they seperated in June of 2011, and filed for divorce in November 2011.
Starting his career in commercials, he has been in over 15 nationals (including eBay, Cingular Wireless, and Best Buy). Moore shot an international campaign for a branch of Siemens cell phones, XELIBRI, which won a Lion Award. Moore's most-recognizable roles may be in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Hatchet, Grandma's Boy, Bones and Avatar. He is now playing on the new Forever series.
Moore has appeared in nearly a dozen television shows, including: LAX, CSI, The Guardian, Strong Medicine, Six Feet Under, Angel, Providence, Boomtown, Boston Public, and House, and most recently as Colin Fisher, a graduate student on Bones.
Moore's first major film role was in 2004's Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, though he is also known for his supporting role in James Cameron's Avatar (2009), opposite Sigourney Weaver and Sam Worthington.
