'Blue Bloods': Megan Boone To Replace Jennifer Esposito And More Casting News

CBS has founds its replacement for Jennifer Esposito.

According to, "Law & Order" vet Megan Boone has booked a multi-episode arc on CBS' "Blue Bloods." Boone will be taking Esposito's -- who was given the boot last week -- place on the series as Detective Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) partner. Seemingly, Esposito wasn't too pleased with her replacement, retweeting this: "CBS got rid of the only minority cast member so they can have an ALL WHITE CAST like CSI."

While CBS said Esposito's departure was due to a scheduling conflict, Esposito claimed it had to do with her battle with Celiac disease in a series of tweets in the slideshow below.
