Bebe Neuwirth and Tom Selleck are going to clash when the Broadway vet comes to Blue Bloods later this year.
EW has learned the Frasier alum has booked a three-episode arc on the CBS cop procedural playing a character named Kelly Peterson, a beautiful, stylish and charming woman who is the new Inspector General overseeing Frank’s department. But while Kelly and Frank will be at odds, it wasn’t always that way. The two are said to have met several years ago and, at the time, “sparks definitely flew.” (Well, this could be awkward…)
Neuwirth, who most recently appeared on The Good Wife, will first appear in an October episode.
Blue Bloods is set to begin its fourth season Sept. 27 on CBS.
