On the Set: Jennifer Esposito, Blue Bloods' New Cop on the Block, Feels "at Home"

On the Blue Bloods set, it's not uncommon to see fake handguns, mock suspect files, claustrophobic interrogation rooms ... and dance numbers?

"We have dance-party Fridays!" Jennifer Esposito tells TVGuide.com after grooving and clapping with the crew to Donnie Wahlberg's beatbox tune in between takes. "It's our little way of unwinding as we wrap up [an episode]." She pauses. "We know it's Thursday today!"

"It's warm-up Thursdays, dance-party Fridays," Wahlberg explains. "That was just a little taste. We write the music on Thursdays and put on the real show Fridays."

Like their dance parties, their show airs Fridays, and this week, fans will meet Esposito's character, Detective Jackie Curatola. Jackie is the new partner of Wahlberg's Danny Reagan, who has had two different partners and worked a case solo in the last three episodes. The third partner may prove to be the charm, partially because the two have been paired before: Jackie and Danny worked narcotics together back in the day.
