Andrea Roth In, Wendy Moniz Out at BLUE BLOODS (CBS)

In surprising recasting news from CBS, Wendy Moniz (Damages), who played the girlfriend of Tom Selleck’s cop family patriarch in the pilot of Blue Bloods, has been dropped from the show for unexplained creative reasons and will be replaced by Rescue Me’s Andrea Roth. The role is recurring and Roth will reshoot all the pilot scenes that featured Moniz.

Blue Bloods, formerly known as Reagan’s Law and not to be confused with the Melissa de la Cruz series of vampire novels, is a drama centered around the Reagans, a tight-knit New York City police family that clashes about everything but the need to serve justice. Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan (Six Degrees), Will Estes (American Dreams), and Len Cariou star.

Blue Bloods will air on Fridays at 10pm and will premiere on CBS September 24, 2010.
