'Avatar' Actor Joel Moore

Files for Divorce

11/15/2011 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joel Moore
Actor Joel Moore -- who played scientist Norm Spellman in "Avatar" -- has filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

Moore -- also famous for his robot scene in "Grandma's Boy" (below) -- filed papers in L.A. County Superior Court, citing the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences."



Moore and his wife -- Kineret Karen Ben Yishay Moore (Jewish?) -- married on New Year's Day in 2009 and separated this June. They have no children.

good for him, women are made for sex and giving us babies, when that role is played out, move to the next f'ing victim.
Kelsey Grammer is my f'ing hero.

TMZ why is this anyone's business. Why do you have to report on everyone's marriage problems. These stories are getting old.

This is probably an "exclusive" only because no one else cares enough to put it on their website.

His soon to be ex- wife has a very Jewish last name, very Israeli in fact.

No mention of his two seasons on Bones? He was hilarious as Fisher, the desperately depressed squint.

Who is this schlub? BTW, Kineret in Hebrew means Galilee, and although her name "sounds" Hebrew, she may in fact not be Jewish or Israeli at all, she just wanted a hip sounding name....therefore, don't think the insertion of "Jewish?" was really necessary or professional.
