Len Cariou has had great successes onstage, but he's happy television is his prime home now.
The star of such hit musicals as "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "A Little Night Music" and "Applause" is in his fourth season as Henry Reagan, family patriarch and former New York police commissioner - the position now occupied by his son Frank (Tom Selleck) - on CBS' Friday drama "Blue Bloods."
Cariou is guaranteed at least one scene a week by the Reagan dinner-table gathering, and he's happy with the job in general.
"It's a great pleasure," he tells Zap2it. "We all have a great relationship, and I think it gives the show a uniqueness for a cop show. We get to know the family members and their different perspectives, and it's a very pleasant working situation. It's like I've gone to heaven."
Cariou credits that in large part to Selleck, »
