‘Blue Bloods’ Star Will Estes Revealed Desire to Play a ‘Bad Guy’

by Megan Molseed

Will Estes has been playing the Harvard-educated good-guy Jamie Reagan on “Blue Bloods,” for the last eleven years. Estes plays the dedicated police Seargent perfectly in the hit series. However, Will Estes is eager to try something a bit different. Well, just for fun, he says.

During an interview with Taylor Magazine, the “Blue Bloods” star discussed the talented crew that makes up the hit CBS television series. Including a few ways, he would like to step out of the “good guy” role. Even if it’s just for a brief moment.

“The bad guys that we arrest always get to have all the fun!” Estes exclaimed when asked if there was a character on the show he would love to play.

Estes went on to note that he is amazed with his costars.

“I’m surrounded by a lot of talent,” the “Blue Bloods” actor explained. Estes added that he is surrounded by talent during the famous “Blue Bloods” dinner scenes. “Len Cariou to my right is such a great actor and film actor.”

Estes Enjoys “Blue Bloods” Cast and Crew

Estes went on to note that the entire cast, and crew, have a hand in the success of the law enforcement drama.

“We have tremendous writers and as an actor, it’s just fun to be a part of the storytelling and the drama,” the actor said when asked what his favorite part about being on “Blue Bloods” would be.

“I have a lot of fun with Vanessa Ray who plays my partner on the show,” he continued. “I love every scene I get with Tom (Selleck), Donnie (Wahlberg), and Bridget (Moynahan) as well.”

Will Estes May Have a Bit More of an Edge Than Jamie Reagan

He may enjoy his time on “Blue Bloods,” but that still doesn’t stop Estes from wanting to expand his acting resume into darker roles in the future.

“People don’t see it in me sometimes,” Estes said when asked if he would like to expand beyond playing Jamie Reagan. A character the outlet describes as a moral character who has”has his head screwed on.”

“I’ve had a chance to play a lot of characters similar to Jamie,” Estes told the outlet. “But I’ll get a chance one day and I’m excited about it.”

The idea of seeing Jamie Reagan (well, the guy who plays him) step outside of the “good guy” role may be exciting. But, for now, “Blue Bloods” fans are happy that Will Estes continues to bring us the exciting storylines we have seen from Jamie so far in the series.
