Danny Reagan shared the card on Twitter. “We really miss you, my friend,” Wahlberg wrote. Vanessa Ray, who plays Officer Eddie Janko-Reagan, also shared the tribute on her Instagram page. “Thank you, Nick, for sharing your unparalleled talent on [Blue Bloods]She writes.

Cordero was best known for his stage roles in Balls on Broadway and Rock of ages. While working in New York, he also appeared in two episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and three episodes of Blue blood. Candidate Tony moved to Los Angeles just before the pandemic and was hospitalized at the end of March. He was in intensive care for over 90 days before his death. He was 41 years old.
I thought of him. I remember when I saw rock for ages on Broadway. I found my playbook the other day. What a great time. I had come across an episode of BB with him as well recently. So talented and a good soul ❤🙏🏼

When Blue blood returns in the New Year, another Broadway actor will make an appearance. Ali Stroker, who won a Tony for the last cover of Oklahoma!, will make an appearance as a detective who hopes Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) will keep him on active duty. Stroker made history as the first actress to use a wheelchair to get around on a Broadway stage. The episode, titled “Redemption,” also stars Danny and Baez (Marisa Ramirez) on the hunt for a rideshare rapist. Jamie (Will Estes) and Eddie help another officer who is shot and Erin (Bridget Moynahan) must sentence a man convicted of homicide to the car.
