Donnie Wahlberg Stars As NYPD Cop In 'Blue Bloods'

donnie0930.jpg
Donnie Wahlberg plays Danny in the new CBS show Blue Bloods, a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement.
Frank Reagan is the New York City Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as Chief.
A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man, and Iraqi War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases.
Blue Bloods airs Fridays at 10pm on CBS.

Donnie Wahlberg Is On The Run Filming ‘Blue Bloods’ [PHOTOS]

Donnie Wahlberg Is On The Run Filming 'Blue Bloods'
Donnie Wahlberg runs like the wind as he films scenes to his new television series Blue Bloods in New York.
The show, in its first season, stars himself, Tom Selleck, and Bridget Moynahan as the Reagan’s, a family of New York Citycops.
The cast had no problem packing the Paley Centre in New York for a Blue Bloods event where the cast appeared and answered questions. Corlando of TV Fanatic was fortunate enough to attend the event where the season premiere was aired and it is something we shouldn’t miss!
Donnie shared what it is like to film in New York City:
“Someone yelled cut and the whole scene shut down,” Wahlberg laughed.  He also shared that an elderly woman using a walker wandered into a dangerous traffic scene they were filming: “She starts yelling at me, ‘This is a free country.  Shut up and mind your own business.’  Only in New York.”
Blue Bloods premieres Friday, September 24, 2010 at 10/9 c.

Donnie Wahlberg says Bridget Moynahan’s got class

Bridget Moynahan and Donnie Wahlberg on the set of CBS’ ‘Blue Bloods.’ 
Tom Brady ’s No. 1 baby mama, Bridget Moynahan, is “a dream to work with” and she doesn’t even mind if you root for 12 and the Pats! So says Donnie Wahlberg, who co-stars with B in the new CBS drama “Blue Bloods.”
The ex-New Kid on the Block told WZLX’s Karlson & McKenzie that he and Jack’s mom have a “really, really good friendship” - despite his love for her ex!
“We talk a lot, we’re both single parents now, and you know, we have a lot in common,” Donnie told the radio duo. “But I did tell her, as friendly as we get, as much as I’m your friend, I’m still going to go to the Patriots  games and I’m still going to cheer for Tom, I hope that’s not a problem.”
No problem-o, replied B.
“She was like, ‘Of course you gotta cheer for him,’ and when she brings her son around, we high-five over the games.”
Wahlberg said Moynahan, who plays his sister in the show about a family of cops and law-enforcement types, is “a great lady,” who has never said a bad word about Brady, who dumped her, then took up with wife Gisele Bundchen right around the time B announced she was pregnant with Jack, who is now 3.
“From what I could see about Tom Brady, he seems like a great guy and she’s never said anything to the contrary,” Donnie dished.

Donnie Wahlberg: From pop to cop

Donnie Wahlberg as detective Danny Reagan
Dorchester native Donnie Wahlberg has quite the resume. His latest role is playing detective Danny Reagan on the new television drama "Blue Bloods." The series, which chronicles the lives of the Reagan family, premieres on CBS tonight (Sept. 24). Wahlberg has gone from singer in the infamous boy band New Kids on the Block to starring as various detectives in multiple TV series and movies. Take a look back at the singer and actor's career (and appearances at Celtics games).

Though the group disbanded in 1984, the Kids reunited in 2008 to embark on a world tour and release the album "The Block."

new Blue Bloods clip- Behind the scenes

"Blue Bloods" Cast Weighs In on N.Y. Drama


Selleck, Wahlberg and Moynahan on Show's Refusal to Glorify Antiheroes, on Filming in Big Apple, and on Becoming a TV Family

(CBS) The new CBS crime drama "Blue Bloods" follows three generations of a tightly-knit family of law enforcement officers in New York City.
The show stars Tom Selleck as Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, Donnie Wahlberg as Detective Danny Reagan and Bridget Moynahan as assistant district attorney Erin Reagan.

The stars stopped by "The Early Show" on Friday.

Selleck said "Blue Bloods" is a change from the antiheroes often seen on TV.

"We want to do a show about heroes, and I think that is the perception and reality with NYPD police officers," he said.
Moynahan said she was drawn to the show because of Selleck and Wahlberg.

"There was already an ease there and comfort that I was really looking forward to being with and it's been the same way," she said. "Our first day altogether with a family scene, we shook hands, introduced ourselves and dove right into the relationship."

Selleck added, "The family dinner scene was our first day's work, so it was kind of, 'How do you do? We're family.'"

In addition to family relationships, "Blue Bloods" is all about the Big Apple, Selleck said.

Filmed on-location in New York City, Selleck said the show is better because it's filmed where it's actually written to be.

Selleck called New York "another character on the show."

He explained, "It was clear it reflected that in the script, and it's pretty hard to argue it's not a better show to shot here."

But for Wahlberg, a Boston-native, the adjustment to New York and playing a New York cop, is sometimes out of his comfort zone.

He told "Early Show" co-anchor Harry Smith, "I'm begging them to let me be a Mets fans, the writers. They still want us to be a Yankee fan but I'm trying to, you know, I'm sliding my paychecks back under the table to let me wear a Mets hat in the show instead of a Yankees. But out in the streets it's great, you know, it's a lot of fun. I think since the Red Sox won the World Series, New Yorkers have lightened up with torturing us Bostonians."

Blue Bloods panel cast at Paley Center NY

Hangin’ tough: From boy band to leading man, Donnie Wahlberg joins the force of ‘Blue Bloods’



By Sarah Rodman Globe Staff / September 24, 2010
BEVERLY HILLS — When it comes to summer vacation reports, Donnie Wahlberg has got a pretty good one, though his summer wasn’t much of a vacation. In June he was finishing up the most recent leg of the New Kids on the Block reunion tour, performing duets with the Backstreet Boys. By the end of July he was stuffing bad guys’ heads in toilets and hanging with “Magnum, P.I.’’

The singer-actor concedes that it’s a good time to be Donnie Wahlberg, as he joins the pedigreed cast and crew of the new CBS family-of-cops drama, “Blue Bloods.’’ Created by veteran TV producer Leonard Goldberg (“Charlie’s Angels,’’ “Family’’) and executive produced by Emmy-winning “Sopranos’’ scribes Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess, the series premieres tonight at 10 on Channel 4.

“Blue Bloods’’ chronicles the intertwined lives of the Reagan clan. The family is anchored by New York police commissioner Frank (Tom Selleck) and includes his detective son Danny (Wahlberg), Harvard Law-educated younger son Jamie (Will Estes), and assistant district attorney daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan). Various extended family members, including retired police chief grandfather (Len Cariou), round out the cast.

“When Tom Selleck says ‘I’m excited to work with you,’ it’s kind of like, Wow, dude you’re Magnum. I get to play your son? Are you crazy? I’d have done it for free,’’ says Wahlberg, hanging in the lobby of a Beverly Hills hotel. He adds with a chuckle, “I told them that after.’’

Luckily, Green and Burgess are happy to be paying him.

“We looked and looked to fill this part,’’ says Green of a character so dedicated to justice that he occasionally crosses the line into Jack Bauer territory. (See: bad guys’ heads in toilets.) “I couldn’t even think of who we wanted, and we saw his reel and that was it. It was magic.’’

“I was a big fan of ‘Band of Brothers,’ ’’ says Selleck of Wahlberg’s work in the Emmy-winning HBO military series. After the producers offered him a peek at that same demo reel and he saw Wahlberg’s varied roles in everything from “The Sixth Sense’’ to the “Saw’’ franchise, Selleck says “his range just blew me away.’’

This isn’t the Dorchester native’s first or even fifth time wearing the badge onscreen, having memorably played cops in both the acclaimed 2002 series “Boomtown’’ and more recently in guest spots on TNT’s Boston-set series “Rizzoli & Isles.’’

“I told myself a year ago I wouldn’t play any more cops for awhile,’’ says Wahlberg. “But the reality is this is just too good of a situation to not take a shot at it.’’

Plus, it gave him an opportunity to reunite with Moynahan, with whom he had clicked when they shot a Boston-set pilot called “Bunker Hill’’ that never made it to air. “I went into instant ‘Recruit Bridget Moynahan!’ mode when I signed on,’’ says Wahlberg.

“I was flirting with the show and he just called me up and did a full-court press,’’ says Moynahan with a laugh. Given the presence of Selleck, Green, and Burgess, and the promise of the dramatic family elements, she adds, “It’s not like he really had to twist my arm too hard.’’

(Moynahan, a native Bay Stater, can’t promise her character won’t be seen in New York sports team gear, but says, “I can guarantee you Donnie will never have a Yankees hat on his head. I think he’s actually taken a smaller trailer just to make sure he had that in his contract.’’)

While “Blue Bloods’’ will devote most of its screen time to the given case of the week, Green says no one involved wants the show to be pigeonholed as a procedural. “We promised the network to have a case that you solve every week [and] to have a family drama that hopefully has something to do with this case.’’

It’s the repercussions of what happens when the personal, professional, and political collide at that dining room table — where four generations of Reagans gather weekly for Sunday dinner — that are most interesting to Wahlberg, who knows from growing up in a big Catholic family that shared similar interests and drive.

“With a lot of the characters I’ve played, I want to know a lot about them and I want to know what the writer thinks: Is he guy A, B, or C?’’ Wahlberg says. “With this character, I didn’t really want to lock in on that. I’m playing a guy whose dad is the police commissioner for the city and he’s a cop. Is he resentful of that? Is he proud? Is he embarrassed? The truth is he’s probably all of them, depending on the day, depending on the circumstances, depending on his mood.’’

For Wahlberg, “Blue Bloods’’ also signals a transition in his own professional trajectory.

“I wanted to shift the balance back in my life a little bit,’’ he says of the time spent dedicated to the 2008 resurrection of Boston’s biggest boy band. “I put New Kids at the forefront of my life for three years and I put acting second. I think for the long-term preservation of New Kids, it’s best for acting to dominate my time and let New Kids fit in the gaps.’’

Not that there are many gaps to fill. If “Blue Bloods’’ is a hit, Wahlberg will shoot the show in New York for the next eight months and then head straight back out on a New Kids tour next summer, all while promoting “The Zookeeper,’’ an all-star live action-animation hybrid — featuring the voice talents of Adam Sandler and Sylvester Stallone — in which he plays the title role.

“Some people live to play and some people work to play, and I live to work,’’ Wahlberg says. “Just give me a few weekends in Boston and let me catch a few Celtics games and I’m happy.’’

Blue Bloods Cast Talks Series Premiere

Blue Bloods Cast Talks Series Premiere: A TV Fanatic Report
The sold-out Blue Bloods event at the Paley Center in NYC had people standing in line on Wednesday.
Surprise thunderstorms and 90-degree heat weren’t enough to scare off fans of this new CBS police drama, which stars Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg.  Cat calls and whistles were heard as the cast was introduced.
Clearly, there is already excitement surrounding this show, even though the pilot won’t air until tomorrow night  Those of us lucky enough to attend got the privilege of an early showing.  Although I can’t give away too many details (the Paley Center hit squad may track me down and confiscate my laptop as punishment), I can say that you do not want to miss it.  Five minutes into the pilot, I was already hooked.
Cast Panel Picture
Blue Bloods is a different type of cop series.  Executive Producer Leonard Goldberg says his favorite TV shows have always been “police shows and family dramas.  Why not combine them and do a show on a police family.”  Hence, Blue Bloods was born.
“The show is about the moments between these people... you’ll remember the small moments between characters," Goldberg said.
Selleck, who plays Police Chief Frank Reagan, was asked what drew him to this series and replied that "I really liked the script.” Once he saw who was lined up for the cast, the veteran actor said it was a "no-brainer" to sign on.
The cast already feels like family and it is never more apparent than in the Sunday dinner scene on the premiere, are curring scene destined to be a cornerstone of the show.  Len Cariou, who plays Henry Reagan, the family patriarch, said of the set-up: “Dinner on Sundays... everyone comes, on pain of death.” 
Executive producers Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green say the sparks between Wahlberg’s character (Danny Reagan) and on-screen sister Bridget Moynahan (Erin Reagan) were a great surprise and enhance the tumultuous brother/sister relationship.  However, the chemistry between the entire cast is obvious. 
Selleck and Wahlberg joked back and forth easily on the panel, as  Wahlberg said: “Tom reminds me of my Dad.  I have to really respect this man.” 
Blue Bloods Photo
Blue Bloods is filmed on location in New York City, something the city embraces so much that real life Police Commissioner Ray Kelly attended the Paley Center event.
NYC is the equivalent of another character in this story.  Goldberg points out that it “cost a great deal of money to shoot in New York,” compared to filming in L.A. or Canada.  He says CBS President “Les Moonves believed in the show and in New York being a character," while adding: “The pizza is great!”
But there are challenges to filming in New York City streets.  “Someone yelled cut and the whole scene shut down,” Wahlberg laughed.  He also shared that an elderly woman using a walker wandered into a dangerous traffic scene they were filming: "She starts yelling at me, ‘This is a free country.  Shut up and mind your own business.’  Only in New York.”

Blue Bloods airs tomorrow night on CBS at 10 p.m. Return afterward for a detailed review of the premiere on TV Fanatic!

“It’s a character-driven cop show,” he adds. “It has some police work but the police work and its effect on the family is really the heart and soul of our show. So it takes real good actors and I think we’ve got a great cast.”
Wahlberg, who plays Selleck’s son on the show, spoke about his excitement to work with the icon on the new CBS show.
“He doesn’t know it but he’s kind of like my dad, onscreen and off, too… When we’re off camera, he’s the leader, he’s the guy.”

Donnie Wahlberg: 'Blue Bloods' a treat


By BILL HARRIS, QMI Agency
Donnie Wahlberg has been on the receiving end of a lot of second-party messages from fans through the years.
But now that he’s working with Tom Selleck on the new series Blue Bloods, Wahlberg finds himself in the unaccustomed role of message conduit for Mr. Magnum P.I.
“Having done the music and acting, I bump into so many people who say, ‘Oh my God, my sister loved you,’ ” said the 41-year-old Wahlberg, who first became famous as a member of New Kids on the Block. “Someone always has a message from someone for me.
“But now that I’m working with Tom, everyone has a message for Tom. They say to me, ‘Oh my God, my mom loves Tom. Please tell Tom my mom loves him.’
“It’s awesome. It’s such a treat to be in that position. I’m not getting hit with messages every day, I’m getting to deliver a few.” Wahlberg plays one of Selleck’s sons on Blue Bloods, which debuts Friday, Sept. 24 on CBS and CTV.
The series best can be described as a family drama mixed with a procedural. Think CSI meets Brothers & Sisters.
Blue Bloods centres on a multi-generational family of cops in New York, led by police commissioner Frank Reagan (Selleck). Frank’s eldest son Danny (Wahlberg) is a seasoned detective and Iraqi war veteran who on occasion crosses the line in his zeal to solve cases.
Blue Bloods also stars Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes and Len Cariou.
“We don’t know how (Danny) feels about his dad being his boss, essentially,” Wahlberg said of his character. “Does he resent it? Does he use it to his advantage? I don’t think it’s clear.
“In life, when we walk into a room and people pre-judge us, we feel differently about it, depending on the day of the week.” Wahlberg called upon his own experience to illustrate the point.
“On the one hand, I can walk into a room and everyone’s excited that I’m a member of New Kids on the Block, and I say, ‘Oh, okay, cool,’ ” Wahlberg said. “But on the other hand, I might also resent it. ‘Oh, they only like me because I’m in New Kids on the Block.’ It’s not cut and dried, especially in a situation like this.
“People whose parents have been really successful before them, sometimes they’re proud, sometimes they’re really resentful, and most times they’re a little bit of both.”
Wahlberg, who had acclaimed TV roles on Band of Brothers and Boomtown, said the Reagan clan on Blue Bloods “feels like a real family” to him. In fact, it feels so much like a real family that the Reagans even remind Wahlberg of his own upbringing in Boston.
“(Selleck) has a gaze that reminds me of my dad,” Wahlberg said. “At the dinner table, I could always take it to a certain point before my dad would whack me in the side of the head, and Tom has that.
“I’m always worried that I’m going to improvise one too many lines and Tom’s going to, in character, say, ‘Knock it off, son.’ And off-camera, he’s going to go, ‘All right, Wahlberg, settle down.’ ”

'Blue Bloods' Makes a Splash in the Big Apple














September 22, 2010

ET's on the red carpet with Tom Selleck and his co-stars as they premiere their arresting new CBS cop drama, 'Blue Bloods,' in New York on Wednesday.

"You don't get a chance in television to see your stuff in front of audiences very often, so I'm excited about that tonight," says Tom, who returns to series TV as the patriarch of a family of New York City cops.

"It's a character-driven cop show," he adds. "It has some police work but the police work and its effect on the family is really the heart and soul of our show. So it takes real good actors and I think we've got a great cast."

Donnie Wahlberg plays the family's older brother and says of Tom, "He doesn't know it but he's kind of like my dad, onscreen and off, too… When we're off camera, he's the leader, he's the guy."

"Tom and I fell in to a father-daughter scene very easily," says Bridget Moynahan, who plays the family's sister . "He's got that paternal vibe about him -- even though everybody thinks he's a hunk."

Len Cariou plays the family grandfather and Will Estes is the kid brother on the show, which premieres this Friday on CBS. "The Talk" and "Big Brother"'s Julie Chen says she, for one, can't wait to watch the drama unfold: "…I thought, 'Oh my God,' when Tom Selleck comes on that screen, you just believe that he is the commissioner of the police department in New York City."

"I think it's just a classic TV drama with one of the greatest TV stars in the history of the medium," her husband, CBS Corporation President and CEO Leslie Moonves says. "Tom is still bigger than life. He's still a great television persona. This is a well written script, the cast is fabulous, and I think it's right in our wheelhouse at CBS, and I love it."

Posted by Judy Sloane on Sep 20, 2010

Donnie Wahlberg has had successful careers in music, movies and TV. His group New Kids on the Block reunited in 2008, yielding a new CD and worldwide concert tour. In movies, he’s been in such box office hits as The Sixth Sense, Ransom and Righteous Kill, and starred in the blockbuster TV miniseries Band of Brothers and the critically acclaimed series, Boomtown.

In his new TV drama, Blue Bloods, he portrays Danny Reagan, a seasoned detective with the New York Police Department, whose entire family is connected with law and its enforcement. His father, Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the New York City Police Commissioner, his sister Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is a N. Y. District Attorney and his youngest brother, Jaime (Will Estes) is a new cop on the beat.

Did you do a back story for this character?

I think in the past, specifically in a show like Boomtown, it was really important that I know what the character’s moral line was, who he was, what he stood for. But with this, it’s ambiguous. I kind of like it that way. I don’t want to know exactly how he feels about his dad being his boss essentially, does he resent it; does he use it to his advantage? Because I don’t think it’s clear.
I think people whose parents have been very successful before them, sometimes they’re really proud, sometimes they’re really resentful, most times they’re a little bit of both. And so I just wanted to kind of figure it out as I go.

How does it feel to be a part of this strong ensemble?

When I read the script, I was attracted to the family element of it. It was different, and there was a good balance. I think everyone’s favorite scene in the pilot is the dinner scene. A lot of people try procedural shows. Some people try character-driven shows.
A lot of times when people try to do both, they don’t really work, because there’s not a consistent element that ties the two together. I don’t know if it was done by design, but that dinner scene almost serves as that.
It’s really a place where work and the procedural stuff comes into the character stuff directly. And you see how everyone is connected.
All the characters are ultimately intertwined somehow, and so it makes it much easier. We’re all police, or work within the law to uphold the law.

Some critics have mentioned the unpredictable way the characters act in this sometimes.

I find that with the show some things play differently than I had anticipated. Tom’s demeanor sometimes in the scenes, the way he plays them, I’m never really quite sure what he’s thinking when I watch him. He seems to be a very straightforward, honorable man and policeman, but he seems to be aware of a lot more than he lets on about. And I find that stuff to be interesting.

Your character has a short fuse, and can be a loose cannon at times, and yet he has advanced to a position of authority, how do you play that as an actor?

I think the one thing with my character’s choice in the pilot episode, there’s a girl’s life at stake and the clock was ticking, and he made a choice. Was it a well thought out choice? Probably not, he just did what he did, that’s kind of authentic too. A lot of people who are very successful and in very powerful positions are capable of snapping at any moment, their temper’s fueled and it helped them get where they are.
I don’t want to make this an over-the-top character. I try to be grounded in most parts I do. If it requires an over-the-top performance I’ll try to give that, but I try to keep it grounded anyway.

Can you talk about working with Bridget?

Yeah, it’s interesting, I executive produced and starred in a pilot for TNT a few years ago set in Boston with Jon Avnet from Boomtown, he was the executive producer along with me, and Bridget played my love interest in that pilot.
When I read this script I immediately thought of Bridget and I reached out to the producers to see who they were thinking about, and they mentioned Bridget’s name.
The minute they mentioned that Bridget was in serious consideration I called her right away and her big fear was not shooting in New York.
She did not want to be stuck shooting in Canada, because she has a young child and she wanted to be in New York or L.A. And I said, ‘I give you my word, we’re going to shoot in New York.’ She said, ‘You can’t guarantee that.’
I said, ‘Well, if we don’t shoot in New York, every time you see me for the rest of your life you can kick me in the ass.’ She said, ‘I’ll do it.’ Fortunately, we’re in New York, so I’m safe.

What is it like working with Tom Selleck?

It’s fun playing with Tom. When I look at Tom he reminds me of my dad. At the dinner table, I could always take it to a certain point before my dad would whack me in the side of the head, and Tom has that. I’m always worried that I’m going to improvise one too many lines and Tom’s going to, in character, say, ‘Knock it off, son,’ and off camera he’s going to go, ‘Alright, Wahlberg, settle down.’
I’ll tell you one fun thing, in my experience, having done the music and acting, I bump into so many people who say, ‘Oh my God, my sister loved you.’ Someone always has a message from someone for me, and now I’m working with Tom, everyone has a message for Tom. ‘Tell Tom my mom loves him.’ It’s awesome. It’s such a treat to be in that position. I’m not getting hit with messages every day; I’m getting to deliver a few.

'Detroit 1-8-7' and 'Blue Bloods' are latest to wear the badge



By Tom Shales
Tuesday, September 21, 2010

........ Finally, there's perhaps the coppiest cop show of the century so far, the soppy and self-satirizing CBS melodrama "Blue Bloods," about an entire family -- "the Reagans" yet! -- involved in the crime biz, including Bridget Moynahan as an assistant district attorney, plus Donnie Wahlberg and Will Estes as young cops, and Len Cariou as Grandpa Cop. And the patriarch? That fuzz-lipped stiff Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, chief of police. It must have been in Selleck's contract that he wouldn't have to do much more than get in and out of cars and make speeches, the first one on the first show a snoozer staged in Madison Square Garden, where graduating cops include one of Frank's boys.
As often happens on cop shows, police brutality is seen as a necessary evil because crooks are so mean and, of course, because the courts have become so lenient. You don't hear TV cops griping because they have to enforce some Draconian law that shouldn't be on the books in the first place, or lamenting vindictive excesses in sentencing. Hollywood, supposedly a frothing cauldron of liberalism, has always been conservative on crime.
In "Blue Bloods," Wahlberg as the family hothead "waterboards" a suspect by nearly drowning him in a toilet. The cop will face possible punishment, we're told, but the audience is primed to take the his side; after all, the criminal is a pervert who locked a little girl in a storage container. Meanwhile there are muttered allusions to such moderately topical matters as "what went on in Iraq" while Wahlberg's character was serving there, perhaps part of a ploy to balance the show's politics.

Another subplot involves an investigation into an ancient secret society among police, of which Daddy Reagan may be a member. But these aren't really "issue issues" dealt with meaningfully and thoughtfully; the crime show has retreated from the bold, brave controversy of the breakthrough shows.
Crime dramas will never go away as long as people turn to television for, among other things, reassurance and comfort. This season's crop might be slightly more reactionary and conservative than last year's, however, because terrorists have made the world seem even less safe. The cop shows still concentrate on good old-fashioned murders and robberies; too much fantasy terrorism can backfire and frighten viewers away.
Police officers for the most part remain salts of the earth, earnestly honest and, of course, true blue. When the Reagans of "Blue Bloods" sit down for a family dinner, they look like they're waiting for Norman Rockwell to rush in and paint their picture.

Blue Bloods (one hour) Premieres Friday at 10 p.m. on CBS.

09/20/2010 - Joe Mac and Eman: The Return of the Balls

Hello. Its been way too long since my last blog. I guess it takes the return of one of the greatest road shows of all time to get me back on the blogisphere. That's right. The balls are back. Don't go there? Really? I mean...really?? You can't "go there" if you are already there. It's done "and there's nothing we could do". Are you following me? Well, I may be sounding a bit too grandiose, but that is the legacy of "One Too Many." All those dusty fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants road warrior, living the dream movies...We did that- what feels like a life time ago, but suddenly seems like yesterday. If we were smart, we'd let it live on in infamy. Instead we endeavor to dig it up, towel it off and beat the shit out of it. Cuz what else is life for, but to blow it. None of this is possible without Bravehearts. They were arguably baptized in the waters at Joe's Pub. And so that is why we go back. There are signs that we might not blow it for it feels as this thing is coming together "on its own". Of course the will is there, Eman and I reminisce probably too often about those by-gone days. We wanted to go back to the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, where that storied tour began with a shot of 151 proof that I can still feel. So we booked it. But we all know it started in NYC...don't we? At a place where only "serious artists" perform. Cred acts... What was Joey McIntyre doing at Joe's Pub? asked The Village Voice, "Spoken word?" For surely, he does not belong there. We have forgiven that writer. That writer can now purchase the cult Live CD by Joe Mac and Eman "One Too Many- LIVE from New York" for $50.00 on eBay, cuz ya can't get 'em anywhere else. Maybe he'll get it when he listens. (No I will not get down off this horse). But don't fret! I am not mad. What matters is that Joe's Pub invited us into their special space and we celebrated. They invited us back...and we broke their internet. That's not nice. The Bravehearts were gathered atop the hillside waiting for the on-sale...Joe's Pub got an On-slaught instead. Thankfully, they accommodated us graciously. We are a raucous bunch but we appreciate a roof over our heads and a good drink. (What?) He's lost his ever loving mind, you say. Only partly true, I protest, for it is not everyday you unearth a legend so great as you may risk the very fiber of your very soul. We will meet again on an autumn eve and see just how real that fabled tale is. Now, make ready your harvest. And God speed. GOD SPEED!!

If you want to ride-a-long with one new cop drama this fall, let it be 'Blue Bloods'

September 17th, 2010 7:14 am PT

There are a couple of new cop dramas coming to television this fall season, and while they all feature characters who get too personally invested in their cases, only one of them manages to mix personal and professional lives in a non-formulaic, non-forced way. That stand-out is CBS' Blue Bloods, starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg as a father-son police team.
In the earliest moments of the Blue Bloods pilot, director Michael Cuesta alternates between shots of the various Reagan family members getting dressed in their finest for a big event and images of seemingly nameless, faceless inhabitants of the city they have sworn to love and protect: New York. On top of it all is a mix of Frank Sinatra and Selleck himself, as he gives a speech to the 2010 graduating class of the NYPD, which holds none other than another one of his on-screen kids (played by Will Estes), to drive the importance of their oath home. And as Selleck reminds them all of that oath and how the threats that surround them grow daily, the audience watches as a little girl walks home alone from school only to cross paths with an unmarked white van...and not continue on her merry way.
Sure, after starting so unequivocally strong, the pilot falters slightly and relies on a stretch of heavily expositional dialogue to explain that literally every member of this clan is also a member of law enforcement-- even the one that was killed too soon. The leads in the case Wahlberg's character picks up are a bit too easy in order to wrap up the procedural elements quicker and get to the heart of the show. They also blow their musical wad a bit early by utilizing just about every iconic track with "New York" in the title and/or chorus, including the always welcome "New York State of Mind" by Jay-Z. However, these are minor infractions that can easily be overlooked by the rich storytelling that unfolds within the forty-five minutes of the episode.
Blue Bloods is not just a boys' club, by the way. Bridget Moynahan is another Reagan who works in law enforcement as an A.D.A. and Amy Carlson is Wahlberg's wife, which is something of a thankless role right now. But the show promises to feature weekly family dinners where the large clan get together and (raucously) discuss family and police business alike so characters will continue to be expanded as time goes on.
Those dinners will also prove to be catalysts for tension, as things get said that maybe certain people shouldn't hear, advice gets given that perhaps shouldn't be said aloud, and of course debates get going of both political and emotional nature. After all, Moynahan's character already finds herself on the prosecuting end of her brother (Wahlberg)'s police brutality accusations in the pilot, and chances are that won't be the only time the lines cross!
Though much of the show's emotional meat seems to lie on Estes' shoulders-- as the "baby" of the family, he is overprotected while still being held to extremely high standards-- Wahlberg stoically carries much of the procedural plot of this particular episode the same way his character carries the weight of following in his father's footsteps on his shoulders.
Estes fits the role of relative "newb" here; a former law student, he joined the police academy after his brother was killed and is just about to embark on the life of a uniform, claiming it is what he has really wanted this whole time. But whether or not that is true remains to be seen. The stakes are high, and the story lines vast, promising lots to come in the episodes after the premiere! ...And that's even before he gets pulled in a little deeper with an internal investigation on a secret "Skull and Bones" type society within the NYPD.
Wahlberg, then, is the seasoned pro, a detective who has seen it all and called upon to instruct the rookies. Their father is the chief of police and has been since both of them were but boys playing cops and robbers in their backyard; he is trotted out now for press conferences and speeches. It is immediately clear, then, that the true drama within Blue Bloods lies in the fact that the younger Reagans are climbing the ranks to replace the elders-- and that is a bold statement to make about a professional industry, let alone also the mortality of a familial patriarch.

Donnie Wahlberg grows up from New Kids on the Block to CBS' 'Blue Bloods'

Thursday, September 16th 2010, 4:00 AM
Donnie Wahlberg (r.) gets back to acting on CBS' new cop series 'Blue Bloods.'
Blankenhorn/CBS
Donnie Wahlberg (r.) gets back to acting on CBS' new cop series 'Blue Bloods.'
Donnie Wahlberg was shooting a scene for CBS' "Blue Bloods" in Washington Square Park a few weeks back and a woman walked through the shot.
At the time, he was dressed like a detective. His badge was showing and he was approaching a "suspect" in a car. He told the woman to step back, like any cop would.
"The cameras are rolling, and she says, 'I'm going to walk down this sidewalk if I want to. It's a free country,'" Wahlberg says, laughing. "She didn't care. I've been around enough New York cops to know that's exactly what would happen.
"That's New York," the Boston- bred actor adds. "You can't get that anywhere else."
That's why "Blue Bloods," which will air Fridays at 10 starting next week, is shooting here.
The show revolves around a family of New York cops, headed by Frank Reagan, the New York police commissioner, played by Tom Selleck. Also in the cast and guest cast are Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Amy Carlson, Len Cariou and Nick Turturro.
For Wahlberg, "Blue Bloods" is a return to acting after a 2-1/2-year hiatus to re-form and tour with New Kids on the Block.
"My appreciation level for acting is at a high now," he says.
Wahlberg broke into acting in 1996, though it was a two-minute part in the 1999 film "The Sixth Sense" that changed everything. That part proved to many he was more than just a singer, and roles escalated from there. He earned rave reviews for HBO's "Band of Brothers" and starred in "Boomtown," "The Kill Point" and a collection of other films.
Along the way, he's grown as an actor, he says.
"I'm definitely more relaxed and more trusting in the process and the team," he says. "If I do my preparation, I know my stuff, and I'm open to what happens, I know things are going to be okay. When I was younger - even on 'Boomtown' - I was much more focused, and focused on hyper-detail. At times, I missed out on opportunities."
It wasn't always that way. He admits it took a while to get comfortable, and credits some helpful advice from Al Pacino, who pulled him aside on the set of "Righteous Kill."
"We just started talking about acting," Wahlberg recalls. "I said, 'I wish I wasn't so intense.' He said, 'You have to be intense when you have to and let it go the rest of the time.' It was the most incredible moment."
It was big, he says, because Pacino understood where Wahlberg was creatively at the time.
"It really told me I was on the right track as an actor," he says.
Now his place is the streets of New York, playing a detective in "Blue Bloods," joking with his counterparts about the Yankees and his beloved Red Sox, and being accepted by passersby.
"If we get good ratings, if we win awards, if we do anything with any level of success," he says, "it will pale in comparison to walking through the streets and hearing a real New Yorker say, 'Hey, Donnie, way to go!'"
