Examining the various levels of police work through multiple generations of a single family’s law enforcement is an intriguing premise, and CBS’ “Blue Bloods” has certainly made the most of it. The cop drama is in its 12th season and still going strong, much like its central family, the Reagans.
Will Estes’ young Jamie Reagan matured from a fresh-faced, young officer to a seasoned police sergeant over the course of the show’s long run. Estes has naturally developed some opinions about the show’s potential direction as he has grown into the role. However, you might be surprised to learn how outlandish one of the actor’s ideas for the show is. Will Estes recently revealed a very surprising dream for a “Blue Bloods” episode in a recent interview. Let’s see what the actor has in mind for the show.
Will Estes would love to see a Blue Bloods musical episode.
Will Estes, it turns out, thinks “Blue Bloods” could benefit from a musical interlude. In an interview with The Nerds of Color, the star revealed that he would love to do a full-fledged musical episode of the show, and if he could, he’d go the whole nine yards and make the entire thing a dream one of the characters is having. Furthermore, he appears to be not alone in this.
“We’ve all talked about doing a musical episode that ends with ‘all a dream,’” Estes revealed. “As in, one of the characters awakens from a dream in which he has dreamed a musical version of a ‘Blue Bloods’ episode.” But I don’t think it’s going to happen. Ha!”
As amusing as the idea of Tom Selleck belting out show tunes may appear at first, Estes’ semi-joking suggestion may not be as far-fetched as it appears. From “Lucifer’s” “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam” and “Psych’s” “Psych: The Musical” to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” “Once More, With Feeling,” shows that aren’t musical have a long history of succumbing to Broadway shenanigans in special episodes. Even HBO’s gritty prison drama “Oz” featured a musical episode called “Variety.”Given all of this, and the fact that “Blue Bloods” star Donnie Wahlberg used to be in a band called New Kids on the Block, a musical episode seems like a pretty intriguing possibility, doesn’t it?
