Movie that Hugh Jackman starred in was reenacted by Donnie Wahlberg while filming Blue Bloods’ family dinners

“Blue Bloods” is a police procedural series, but it’s also a family drama at its core. Since its inception in 2010, the show has remained firmly focused on the Reagan family, delving into each of their personal and professional lives as members of the New York Police Department. Because of this premise, much of the show takes place outside of the police station when the Reagans are off-duty and at home with their loved ones.

The Reagan family dinner scenes, in which every family member gathers around the dining room table for a Sunday feast and discusses whatever pressing issues are on their minds with each other, have been a key staple of the show throughout its run. Several cast members have stated in the past that these scenes are extremely difficult to film and can take up to eight hours to complete.

Given the length of the shoot, it stands to reason that there will be some downtime between takes, and cast members will logically seek out ways to pass the time. Donnie Wahlberg (who plays Danny Reagan) appears to have once settled on a surprising time-filler, opting to reenact a personal Hugh Jackman film favorite with his castmates.

Wahlberg performed a reenactment of The Greatest Showman.

Vanessa Ray (who plays Eddie Janko-Reagan on “Blue Bloods”) revealed to The Nerds of Color in a 2021 interview that the cast enjoys talking about their favorite films in between takes for the dinner scenes. She went on to say that some of them have even gone so far as to reenact their favorite scenes, with Donnie Wahlberg reportedly reenacting a few key moments from the recent film musical “The Greatest Showman.”

“The Greatest Showman” was a semi-biographical film about the legendary circus showman P.T. Barnum (played by none other than Hugh Jackman) and his development of the legendary Barnum Circus, which was released in 2017.

While Wahlberg’s affinity for this particular musical may surprise some, it makes more sense given his status as a professional musician and penchant for singing. If anything, reenactments of “The Greatest Showman” around the Reagan dinner table are somewhat fitting, given that the film focuses on a ragtag group of oddballs who unite as a tight-knit family, similar to the central “Blue Bloods” family. It’s also entertaining to imagine Wahlberg and his co-stars singing show tunes on set.
