Megan Boone had a (very) brief stint on ‘Blue Bloods’
Q: Someone told me that Megan Boone, of “The Blacklist,” once played Danny’s partner on “Blue Bloods.” Is that true? – Steve Lovett, Bend, Ore.
A: After Jennifer Esposito and the CBS drama parted ways, several actresses got on-air tryouts to be teamed with Donnie Wahlberg, and Boone was one of them. She played Detective Candice McElroy in two episodes in 2013, but it’s just as well that it didn’t work out for her ... since very shortly afterward, she landed the role of FBI agent Elizabeth Keen on NBC’s then-starting “The Blacklist,” a part she’s still playing now.
Q: Will Cote de Pablo be a part of “NCIS” again or not? – Jim Hines, via e-mail
A: Tentatively, which probably isn’t the answer that fans of the actress and her character Ziva David want. After her surprise appearance at the end of last season’s finale of the internationally popular CBS drama, she’s set to return in the Season 17 opener on Tuesday, Sept. 24. After that, she’ll apparently be gone again for a while, but she’ll reportedly resurface in at least two more episodes in the months to come. De Pablo evidently had much to do with devising the story line that brings Ziva back.
