Tom Sellect broods in Blue Bloods.

Tom Selleck (Lassiter) leads a handsome ensemble cast in the television police crime drama show Blue Bloods: The Second Season, which arrives on disc on the eve of the series’ Season Three premiere.

The story of a multi-generational family dedicated to New York City law enforcement stars Selleck as Frank Reagan, the New York Police Commissioner who heads both the police force and the Reagan brood.

He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, which includes his unapologetically bold father Henry (Len Cariou, Thirteen Days), the former commissioner; his eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg, the Saw franchise), a seasoned detective and Iraqi war veteran who uses dubious tactics with his partner Jackie (Jennifer Esposito, TV’s Samantha Who?) to solve cases; and his daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan, Battle Los Angeles), an Assistant D. »

Tom Selleck goes black tie in 1984's Lassiter.

Tom Selleck (TV’s Blue Bloods) is a suave, debonair man-about-town…and a notorious thief—in the 1984 action adventure crime film Lassiter.

Whether he’s charming high society’s elite at a black-tie dinner or emptying their safes in the dead of night, Nick Lassiter certainly excels at what he does.

When word leaks out that a cache of uncut diamonds is to be smuggled through the German embassy, Lassiter is coerced by police and the FBI to perform one last heist on their behalf.
