I wanted to blog about this great show Blue Bloods and some of the cast. I came into this show late, just started watching this season, hopefully I can watch the other episodes sometime.
The show revolves around an Irish-American Reagan family of police officers with the New York City Police Department. They are a close-knit family and in each episode there is a scene where they are all gathered around their large dinner table eating and discussing the days events, of work and or personal affairs. Those scenes always give me a warm and fuzzy feeling, that sense of family, just wonderful!
Some of this awesome cast includes Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, Donnie Wahlberg as Danny Reagan, Bridget Moynahan as Erin Reagan-Boyle, Will Estes as Jamie Reagan, Len Cariou as Henry Reagan, Amy Carlson as Linda Reagan.
Henry Reagan (Len Cariou) is a retired Police Commissioner. I love how he is always there for his family to listen to them when they need him and giving them some good advice.
Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the Police Commissioner. He is a widower who lost a son (Joe) “in-the-line-of-duty,” his other children are Danny, Erin, and Jamie. He watches over all of his kids as both boss and father, he shows his pride through handshakes and hugs, while always keeping that watchful eye!
Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) is a NYPD detective. He can be hard headed and doesn’t always follow the book, which sometimes gets him in hot water. But he is a loving father and husband.
Erin Reagan-Boyle (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney in Manhattan who prosecutes many of the criminals Danny, her brother, arrests. She is mother to Nicole “Nicki” Reagan-Boyle (Sami Gayle).
Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) is a rookie officer on the police force after graduating from the police academy. He is Frank’s youngest child, and is a recent graduate of Harvard Law School.
Linda Reagan (Amy Carlson) is wife of Danny and mom to Sean (Andrew Terraciano) and Jack (Tony Terraciano).
-Len Cariou was Sweeney Todd in the original cast of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Len is good friends with Angela Landsbury his former Sweeney costar. He was on many episodes of Murder She Wrote from 1986-1992, which starred Angela.
-Tom Selleck, you probably remember him from his popular 1980’s series Magnum, P.I. where he played a private investigator named Thomas Magnum. He also plays Police Chief Jesse Stone in a series of made-for-TV movies.
-Donnie Wahlberg was a member of the popular 1980s and 1990s boy band New Kids on the Block. He had featured roles in the Saw films and also was in the award-winning World War II miniseries Band of Brothers.
-Bridget Moynahan started out as a model and also did television commercials before becoming an actress. In 1999 she had a guest appearance in HBO series Sex and the City. She made her feature film debut in Coyote Ugly.
-Will Estes was on the NBC drama series American Dreams. He has had numerous guest starring roles in shows like Highway to Heaven and Santa Barbara. Will has done many commercials including Fruit of the Loom!
-Amy Carlson played Josie Watts on Another World and Alex Taylor on Third Watch. I watched her on both of these shows. I actually got to meet her at a Special Olympics Benefit in Saratoga Springs, NY. She was so sweet and gracious as you can see in this photo I took of her. At the time she was playing Josie on Another World.
