Marisa Ramirez Cast as New Partner on Blue Bloods

by at . Comments

Blue Bloods has found a new partner for Danny Reagan.

Marisa Ramirez (Against the Wall, Body of Proof) has been cast on five episodes of the CBS drama as Detective Maria Baez. She will debut this Friday and has the potential to come on board as a series regular in the fall.

Ramirez will represent the third temporary partner for Danny, following a four-episode arc by Megan Ketch and a three-episode shiny by Megan Boone.

The series was forced to make these changes after an ugly dispute with Jennifer Esposito led to that star's departure from the drama.

The show could not be any greater. The stories are superb and the acting 1st class. I sure hope you keep Marisa, she is great. Ms Esposito was my favorite but of course I've been following her since Spin City. I wish you would use more of Nick Turturro. He's an oldie but a goodie. Keep up the great work. Thanks, and I watch every Friday, even the reruns.

Esposito was hands down better than all temp partners that followed her departure. I'm not sold on Ramitez. What's with the constant lip gloss?

I was a BIG fan of hers when she was on GH! I am really excited to see her back on primetime.
