The Reagan family is back and better than ever in the eighth season of Blue Bloods. The show follows NYPD police commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) and his three children, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), Jamie (Will Estes), and Erin (Bridget Moynahan). Season 8 picks up after a devastating event that drives a wedge between the siblings. Despite their differences, they still have each other’s backs—just like family members do!
Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan
Tom Selleck is an American actor and film producer. He is best known for his starring role as Thomas Magnum in the 1980s television series Magnum, P.I., a character he also played in several made-for-television movies. Other notable roles include Jesse Stone, the title character in four films based on the novels by Robert B. Parker; Frank Reagan in Blue Bloods (2010); and Dr. Richard Burke on Friends (1994–2004). Tom is one of the cast in Blue Bloods.
Donnie Wahlberg as Danny Reagan
Donnie Wahlberg plays Danny Reagan, the youngest son of Frank and Erin Reagan. As a former Marine, he has served as a police officer for over 20 years. He was also a former Chicago police officer and New York City police officer before joining the FBI, where he became an agent. After returning from his time at the FBI, Danny became chief investigator for Joseph Aiden’s campaign against Mayor Anthony Garcia (Nestor Serrano). He is one of the cast in Blue Bloods.
Bridget Moynahan as Erin Reagan-Boyle
Erin Reagan-Boyle is the oldest child of Frank and Linda Reagan. She works as a prosecutor for the DA’s office, and she is married to Danny Reagan. The couple has one son together, Jamie. Despite her profession, Erin’s approach to law enforcement is rooted more in real life than on television; she hopes to make changes within the system rather than fight against it. She also has a strong sense of right and wrong that sometimes puts her at odds with other members of the family who believe there are always two sides to every story. Erin is one of the cast in Blue Bloods.
Will Estes as Jamie Reagan
Jamie Reagan is the youngest son of Frank and Erin Reagan. He began his career as a cop with the NYPD’s Midtown North Precinct, but after being shot in the line of duty, he was taken off active duty. Jamie has recently rejoined the force and is now working at Intelligence.
Jamie has an older brother named Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), who is also a cop with the NYPD; together, they have younger sisters named Maria (Marisa Ramirez) and Nicky (Sami Gayle). Their father is Frank (Tom Selleck), their uncle Henry (Len Cariou), and their mother’s brother-in-law from her first marriage to Eddie Torres (David Zayas). He is one of the cast in Blue Bloods.
Len Cariou as Henry Reagan
Henry is the father of the Reagan family and a retired police officer. He is also a former NYPD chief and a widower who had raised his two sons, Danny and Jamie, on his own since their mother’s death (their father died in an accident when they were young). As such, he acts as something of a father figure to Danny & Jamie—a role that becomes increasingly important when Roy (Henry’s brother-in-law) returns from prison seeking forgiveness for his past crimes.
Henry’s partnership with Frank helps to keep him grounded even after he retires from the force; however, it can be difficult for others to see past Henry’s gruff exterior—something his daughter Bessie struggles with during her first few years as an FBI agent.
Amy Carlson as Linda Reagan
The wife of Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), Linda Reagan, is the mother of Erin and Jamie Reagan, as well as the daughter of NYPD Police Commissioner Henry Reagan (Len Cariou) and sister to Nicky Reagan (Danny Pino). She is also the sister-in-law of Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez), who married her brother Nicky.
She is a former model on the cover of “Vogue” magazine and worked as a flight attendant before she met Frank while he was in Paris on business. Amy is one of the cast in Blue Bloods.
Marisa Ramirez as Maria Baez
Marisa Ramirez is a Puerto Rican actress who has appeared on the big screen in films like “Stand and Deliver” and “The Last Boy Scout” as well as minor screen roles in shows like “The Sopranos” and “Gotham.” She’s also starred on Broadway, having impressed audiences with her portrayal of Eva Peron in “Evita.”
Ramirez has had a long career; she graduated from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, famously known for its alumni, such as Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Currently, she is playing Detective Maria Baez on CBS’ Blue Bloods, which stars Tom Selleck as NYPD police commissioner Frank Reagan.
Sami Gayle as Nicky Reagan-Boyle
Sami Gayle is an American actress best known for her role as Nicky Reagan-Boyle on the CBS television drama Blue Bloods. She has also appeared in the films The Blackout and The Last Word. She is from the Bronx, New York.
Gayle earned her bachelor’s degree at Fordham University, majoring in English literature.
After graduating from college, Gayle moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. She landed several minor TV roles before being cast as Nicky Reagan-Boyle on Blue Bloods in 2011.
The Reagan family is one of the most legendary families in all of New York City. They’ve got a lot on their plate, but they always manage to come through for each other. This show is excellent for anyone who loves police procedurals but enjoys seeing how even those with the highest standards can still be vulnerable and human.
