The Family Dinner Scenes Are What Convinced Donnie Wahlberg to Take the Show

Blue Bloods debuted on television in 2010 and has since become one of the most popular police procedurals around. With a star-studded cast, including television legend Tom Selleck, Bridget Moynahan, and Donnie Wahlberg, Blue Bloods features nearly non-stop action and lots of intense storylines. However, it is the family dinner scenes that really mesmerized fans from the beginning. These scenes, a hallmark of the series, are loved by the cast as well as the viewers. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Wahlberg revealed that it was those scenes that convinced him to take the role of Danny Reagan in the first place.
