CBS Taps Actress to Fill In for Jennifer Esposito on 'Blue Bloods,' Even as Esposito Fights to Get Back on the Series Deadline
CBS has tapped another actress to fill in for Jennifer Esposito on "Blue Bloods," after Esposito was written out of the show, reports Deadline.com.
"Law & Order: Los Angeles" actress Megan Boone has been cast to play a new temporary partner for Donnie Wahlberg's character, Det. Danny Reagan, the story says. She will appear for three episodes with a series option.
As previously reported, Esposito's attorneys are trying to get her back on "Blue Bloods," with the actress saying she was written off following a collapse on the set. She blamed her issues on celiac disease, and is trying to get the network to make a special accommodation for her.
