About Donnie
The CBS show "Blue Bloods" follows a group of law enforcement agents that cover almost every aspect of police work, but it’s the dinner scenes that became the heart of the show. The Sunday dinners are where the Reagans discuss their trials and tribulations and bond as a family.
In an interview, Donnie Wahlberg said a lot of improvisation happens during the scenes and addressed Selleck’s reaction, “Someone else might kick me under the table and say, 'Stop adding those improvs,' but Tom doesn't. And six months later he'll say, 'I love the way you fill in all the holes in the dinner scene. It needs you, you keep it alive.'“
For his part, Selleck believes that Wahlberg has an aptitude for enhancing a script and told Wahlberg to never stop what he's doing. Selleck went on to state that he wants Wahlberg to keep improvising lines and moments for the duration of the show because it makes "Blue Bloods" that much better.
