Meanwhile, All My Children alum Rebecca Budig has been tapped to play Mickey’s wife Connie, a lovely woman who has moved back East with her family, ostensibly to be near her ailing parents.

Since bidding Stuckeyville adieu, Cavanagh has recurred on such shows as Royal Pains, Eli Stone and Scrubs (playing bro to Zach Braff) and co-headlined the TNT drama Trust Me.

Budig played AMC‘s Greenlee on and off for more than a decade. Her other TV work includes appearances on Castle and CSI.

Cavanagh and Budigs’ Blue Bloods episode is scheduled to air Friday, Dec. 20 at 10/9c.

    I’m still waiting for ED to be released on DVD. I’m getting a bit impatient.

    • Rebecca says:

      lol. That is the first and only thing I think about when I see tom’s name.

    • Lindsey says:

      I found it (less than legally) on a Web site a few years ago. It’s better than nothing, but I still want the real deal. I’ve followed his career since Ed, too, so I might have to check him out on Blue Bloods, even though I’ve never seen it.

  2. I love this news, but someone needs to give Tom Cavanagh his own show again STAT. And dangit, now I need to rewatch Ed. I miss that show!

  3. tp says:

    He had a very short lived show called Love Monkey. That’s when I became a fan. Couldn’t get into Ed.

  4. Eric says:

    I became a fan through watching him on Scrubs reruns as a pre-teen. A few years later I discovered his podcast, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks where he and his Ed costar Michael Ian Black review various snacks. I’ve been a loyal follower of his ever since. Funny guy. I might tune in for his guest appearance.

  5. Becca says:

    I’ll be tuning in just for Rebecca Budig! I absolutely loved her on AMC and am so excited to see her on another show. Great news!

  6. Jennifer says:

    Woo hoo. I watch the show anyway but I love that both are going to be on.

  8. D'oh says:

  9. Leah says:

    Love Monkey was the best show! and he was great in the Trading Christmases Christmas movie. What can I say, I’m a sucker for sappy Christmas movies. Glad to see him on BB. Looking forward to it. The Goldbergs is a fantastic show – hope it sticks around.
