In 2019 “Blue Bloods” star, Will Estes sat down with “Liveabout” to discuss his role in the hit series. During the interview, the actor was candid about his excitement going into the role. 

“I’m very excited about “Blue Bloods,” the actor told “Liveabout” in 2019. 

“It’s a show about a cop family, an New York police department family,” Estes continued. “It’s got a lot of action, a lot of excitement and the police battle between right and wrong.” 

Estes makes it clear that he found the premise of the hit CBS series to be exciting. However, there was something else that Estes found to be exciting when the actor landed his role as Jamie Reagan on “Blue Bloods.”

“I was more excited when I read this than anything I’ve read in a really long time and that was before I knew who was attached to it,” Will Estes told the outlet. The actor added that he was excited to see who was behind the development of the series. 

“What’s equally as thrilling is that Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green, who were writers for “The Sopranos,” wrote the pilot,” Estes said.

Will Estes went on to say that he was equally excited to be working with his “Blue Bloods” coworkers. 

“Of course, working with Bridget, Donnie, Len, and Tom is equally as exciting,” Estes says in the interview. “It’s all set around this wonderful family drama with Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, and Len Cariou.” 

In the hit police drama, Jamie plays the youngest son of the Reagan family. Tom Selleck plays Frank Reagan, father to Jamie and his siblings. Donnie Wahlberg portrays Danny Reagan, Jamie’s older brother, and Bridget Moynahan plays Erin Reagan Jamie Reagan’s only sister. Len Cariou plays Frank’s father on “Blue Bloods.” Cariou is the Reagan family patriarch. 

Each member of the Reagan family works in the law enforcement field. 

The Reagan Family Takes Law Enforcement Seriously

In the interview, Will Estes described Donnie Wahlberg’s “Blue Bloods” character, Danny Reagan, as being “a little rough around the edges.” 

“My character Jamie is a little different in that he went to Harvard Law and graduated,” the actor explained. “Jamie wants to be a cop just like his dad and granddad, so that’s what he does.” 

In the hit series, Jamie’s brother, Danny (Wahlberg) serves the NYPD as a New York City detective. Erin, (Moynahan) is the only Reagan sister on “Blue Bloods.” 

She serves as the New York City Assistant District Attorney.
