“Frank will be changed by what happens, which I don’t want to give away, but there is a very good twist in it for Frank.”
However, fans and viewers can be reassured with Selleck’s statement that he is still having fun playing the role of Frank on Blue Bloods even though it has already run for eight years on TV. Selleck compared his role on the CBS drama to his famously played role on Magnum P.I.
Selleck admitted that his role on Blue Bloods shares a couple of similarities with the role that he played on Magnum P.I. in terms of the way they stay loyal to the things that matter the most. He said that both characters were “unconventional” and both shows paid a lot of attention to the stories played by its characters.
