BLUE BLOODS Names Jennifer Esposito Series Regular

BLUE BLOODS "Officer Down"

It looks like Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jackie Curatola’s (Jennifer Esposito) partnership on BLUE BLOODS just became permanent since Esposito has been promoted to series regular.

Though she has only appeared in three episodes so far (tonight marks her fourth appearance), Esposito has made a big impression. Executive producer Leonard Goldberg said in a statement, “Jennifer is a wonderful addition to the cast. She brings creativity and energy to the set every day and is a perfect match for Donnie Wahlberg’s character. We are thrilled to have her on the Blue Bloods team.”

Esposito, whose prior television credits include Samantha Who, Rescue Me, and Spin City, first appeared on the CBS drama in the October 15 “Officer Down” episode.

Blue Bloods airs on CBS Fridays at 10pm/9 central.
