Selleck, Wahlberg, Estes Head East for ‘Blue Bloods’

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Will Estes, Bridget Moynihan and other members of their “Blue Bloods” series company are migrating from West to East coast over the next couple of weeks. The forthcoming CBS show – about a family of police in New York City – will shoot in New York with a cast consisting mostly of L.A. actors. So everyone’s moving in advance of the July 26 production start, at least temporarily.

Former “American Dreams” and “Reunion” actor Estes, who is playing the scion of the Reagan police clan, tells us he’ll be staying on in the Big Apple at least six months. “I’ve always wanted to try living in New York, and I’ve had a secret – well, not so secret – wish to play a cop, so this is two dreams wrapped up in one,” he says.

Estes says he was “really excited” about the “Blue Bloods” project as soon as he read the script — not even knowing that the show was created by “Sopranos” veteran executive producers Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green. Nor did he know until later that Selleck and Wahlberg were aboard. There was a long, grueling casting process to go through before he finally learned the job was his, he says. “I waited and waited, days and days. I finally said, ‘Just stop calling me. Don’t tell me I’m still in the mix anymore. Just tell me if I got it,’” he recounts.

If he and his cast mates look like a real family group sitting around a dinner table in the pilot, attribute it to good acting. “We didn’t have any rehearsal or prep time to get the family dynamics” before shooting on that scene commenced, according to Estes. “It was a fun process, kind of getting thrown in. I have a friend who has worked with Donnie Wahlberg, so I felt I knew him a little bit, but never had any interaction with Tom Selleck or Bridget Moynihan. Once we all get our sea legs, I think it’s going to be phenomenal.”
