For starters, TVLine has learned that Lights Out pugilist Holt McCallany is set to recur on the CBS drama as Robert McCoy, the speed-dating match-up whom Erin wound up (awkwardly) facing in the courtroom during Season 4. Now, though, McCoy is serving as the interim D.A.

Additionally, McCallany’s Lights Out castmate Bill Irwin (also of CSI, SVU) will recur as Cardinal Brennan, the Archbishop of the New York Diocese, while Tony nominee LaTanya Richardson Jackson (A Raisin in the Sun) has been cast as a new squad commander.

Blue Bloods Season 5 premieres Friday, Sept. 26 at 10/9c. (With reporting by Nivea Serrao)

    Hey, that Speed dating episode was just on last night!

    I’ve also heard that Vanessa Ray has been bumped up to “Also Starring” along with Gayle, Carlson and Ramirez. Interesting that all these women get bumped up, but not Gregory Jbara who plays Garrett. He’s on as much as the others.

    BTW, How come they don’t add these “Also Starring” actors into the theme song? Is it a contract thing? Just wondering.
