Playing a cop on the show, Donnie Wahlberg has kept a certain something on his desk for nine seasons – and his fans don’t know about it, or should we say never noticed?
Blue Bloods takes a refreshing angle on the classic police procedural drama, in that the show is about a multi-generational family of law enforcement workers and cops. Each character represents a different side to law enforcement as they work towards protecting and serving the city of New York.
- Danny Reagan keeps a certain picture on his desk
- And this is how he let his fans on in this secret
As can be well imagined, the show can get serious and gritty. So, it’s no surprise that to lighten up the atmosphere a little bit, the cast members tend get innovative to extract laughter between takes. And Donnie Wahlberg, who plays Danny Reagan on the show, is a master in this.
Danny Reagan’s keeps a certain picture on his desk
Wahlberg has been one of the leads of the show for all its run, playing Danny Reagan, the hot-headed and serious NYPD detective. When actors work on the same set for many years, the fictional backdrops sometimes turn into second homes for some of them, leading to attempts at personalising and renovating their workspaces.
Wahlberg seems to have made such an attempt on his corner of the set: Danny Reagan’s desk. The desk has a surprising item sitting on it, and it is both bemusing and endearing.
It is a picture of Tracy Morgan.
And this is how he let his fans in on this secret
Wahlberg often has fun with his audience, and the way he told them of this item on his desk is interesting, to say the least.
He was on the set of Blue Bloods, and decided to shoot a video for his fans. He then uploaded the video on his Instagram account, accompanying it with the caption, 100% #facts! I’ve kept this on Danny’s desk for nine seasons! Only I’m not sure that Danny Reagan actually loves the @tracymorgan pic as much as @donniewahlberg does! 🙏🏼💯😂 #Brooklyn #Salute #Respect #BlueBloods #CopOut 💙
In the video he is seen holding up a picture of Tracy Morgan, who is dressed in police attire, from his movie Cop Out. In the background of the video, you can hear a cast member laughing.
We wonder what other secrets Danny Reagan’s desk harbours. We’re guessing we’ll have to wait for another update from Wahlberg himself, since he’s so good at keeping things hidden from fans.
