Kamar de los Reyes is getting ready to walk the beat with Blue Bloods.
The One Life to Live vet took to Twitter to announce his upcoming gig, exclaiming, “Looking forward to working with the cast… Excited as all hell!!!!”
TVLine has learned that Reyes — whose most recent TV credits include The Mentalist, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and CSI: Miami — will appear in two May episodes of the CBS drama, playing Santana, a deadly Latino gang leader who rules over the inner-city projects with his drug and vice trade. Unfortunately, Danny and all of the NYPD become targets when they interfere with the kingpin’s operation.
Blue Bloods’ Season 3, meanwhile, wraps its run on Friday, May 10.
