Blue Blood's Will Estes Talks About His Role in The Dark Knight Rises

The actor who is best known as Jamie Reagan on the hit CBS television show, Blue Bloods, briefly talks about his role in Christopher Nolan's next Batman movie.



Blue Bloods is a police drama about an Irish-American family made up of cops. The Reagan family patriarch is Tom Selleck, who plays Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. And Will Estes plays his son Jamie, who was a lawyer, but turns his back on the profession, and becomes a police officer instead.

Revealed below, Will Estes won't be straying to far from his current role, as he will be playing a police officer in The Dark Knight Rises as well. Although he describes his role as small I wouldn't write that off as meaning it's insignificant.

In the past Batman movies, Nolan has been able to squeeze out some big performances out of generally small roles. Just look at William Fichtner as the bank manager as an example of a small role that had a big impact. Or, look at Michael Jai White as Gambol, the mob boss that picks a fight with the Joker.

What follows is an excerpt from an interview with 411 Mania
Jeffrey Harris: Alright, now suckas gots to know. What is going on with your shooting on The Dark Knight Rises? What is going to happen to Batman? What is going on with Catwoman? Do you get a makeout scene with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle? What is going on, we got to know.

Will Estes: If they gave me a cat, no pun intended, to let out of the bag, I would do it. I had a blast. I worked a couple days. I'm supposed to go back and do some more. I'm playing a police officer, but I'm a huge fan of the Dark Knight series, especially Chris Nolan​'s work on it. I'm a huge Christian Bale​ fan. He looks incredible in the suit. I got to actually see the Bat-pod go by, the motorcycle with the huge tires. It's been a blast and there's no cat for me to let out of a bad, but I'm looking forward to seeing the film myself.

Jeffrey Harris: So you're not going to put on a mask and red suit and become Robin? Or perhaps become Nightwing?

Will Estes: You know I was talking to Chris about that. I suggested it, but he didn't seem fired up about it.

Jeffrey Harris: It seems Nolan does a good job of giving even some minor and incidental characters in his Batman movies some presence and screen time. Do you know what type of character you will have and will you get some lines on film?

Will Estes: Yeah, I've got a few lines. To be totally clear, they didn't sit down and break down a whole script for me. And that day, on the day, things got added a little bit. And I'm excited about it. I think frankly between you and me, it's a part that could get cut out of the film and it would still be a complete movie. But I had a blast working on it. And if Chris Nolan says, "Would you be in my movie?" I got to say yes. I had a great time and I look forward to seeing it.

Jeffrey Harris: If you got cut out of the movie, we'd have to start an online campaign to make sure you stay in.

Will Estes: I've just been telling all my friends that I'm Batman. It just sounds better.



The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
