'Blue Bloods' Len Cariou is proud to be Tom Selleck's dad

Len Cariou has had great successes onstage, but he's happy television is his prime home now.The star of such hit musicals as "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "A Little Night Music" and "Applause" is in his fourth season as Henry Reagan, family patriarch and former New York police commissioner - the position now occupied by his son Frank (Tom Selleck) - on CBS' Friday drama "Blue Bloods."Cariou is guaranteed at least one scene a week by the Reagan dinner-table gathering, and he's happy with the job in general."It's a great pleasure," he tells Zap2it. "We all have a great relationship, and I think it gives the show a uniqueness for a cop show. We get to know the family members and their different perspectives, and it's a very pleasant working situation. It's like I've gone to heaven."Cariou credits that in large part to Selleck, who also has a big creative say in... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/blue-bloods-len-cariou-is-proud-to-be-tom-sellecks-dad.html

'Blue Bloods': Tom Selleck is 'guru of wonderfulness' for Vanessa Ray

Tom Selleck is very much a family man on "Blue Bloods," so it makes sense that he'd welcome newcomers to the show's "family."Vanessa Ray discovered that to be very much the case when she joined the CBS Friday drama at the start of its current season. She hasn't been invited to one of the weekly on-camera dinners -- at least not yet -- as Jamie Reagan's (Will Estes) new NYPD partner Eddie Janko, but she's found Emmy winner Selleck just as paternal and protective as his alter ego, Commissioner Frank Reagan."I was very nervous and excited to meet him," the good-humored Ray tells Zap2it. "I've worked with a couple of these really cool, great actors like Ted Danson and Glenn Close [on 'Damages']. They all have their own presence when they walk into a room, and I was excited to see what Tom Selleck's 'space' was going to be like."I should also say that every... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/10/blue-bloods-tom-selleck-is-guru-of-wonderfulness-for-vanessa-ray.html

'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 5, 'Lost and Found': A kidnapping and crises of faith rock the Reagans

The personal and the professional have a way of merging for the Reagans of "Blue Bloods."Such was the case again in "Lost and Found," Friday's (Oct. 25) episode of the CBS police drama written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly. Frank (Tom Selleck) was alarmed to learn Father Markhum (Frank Wood, "The Newsroom"), the NYPD's chaplain, had been stopped for driving while intoxicated ... "the fourth time in two months," police chief Dino (John Ventimiglia) revealed.The clergyman had rear-ended another car, and Frank worried that intervening would appear to be favored treatment -- something the arresting officer already had furnished by letting the priest sleep off his condition. And Frank realized such handling was "the reason I never heard about the other three DWI's."Later, Frank entered a confessional to talk to the chaplain, and told him to turn himself in: "Even priests do penance, Jerry."While eating out with Erin (Bridget Moynahan), Nicky (Sami Gayle) noticed a... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/10/blue-bloods-season-4-episode-5-lost-and-found-a-kidnapping-and-crises-of-faith-rock-the-reagans.html
