The fall TV season is still weeks away, but already – and as is expected – roles are being recast on shows that have yet to hit the airwaves.

On CBS’ multigenerational cop drama ‘Blue Bloods‘ (airing Fridays at 10/9c), ‘Rescue Me’ mainstay Andrea Roth has been recruited to replace Wendy Moniz as the love interest for Tom Selleck’s police captain character. EW.com cites “creative reasons” for recasting the recurring role.
