Esai Morales Moves to Jericho


“NYPD Blue” alum Esai Morales has joined resurrected CBS series “Jericho” as a recurring, appearing in six of the seven episodes of the show ordered for midseason, says The Hollywood Reporter.

On “Jericho,” from CBS Paramount Network TV, Morales will play Col. Hoffman, a career military officer and Iraq War veteran who has not heard from his wife since the day of the attacks.

The post-apocalyptic drama “Jericho,” which chronicles the events following a series of nuclear explosions throughout the U.S., was canceled in May but picked up for a seven-episode second season in June after a massive campaign by the show’s fans.
