Tom Selleck’s character, police commissioner Frank Reagan, is about to get a new challenging working relationship on Blue Bloods.

A CBS spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Dexter alum, David Ramsey, is joining the series in a recurring role, as first reported by TVGuide.com.

Ramsey will play the new mayor, Carter Poole – a liberal, who has a background in community organizing and is particularly soft on crime. Needless to say, that rubs Reagan the wrong way, but the two find a way to cooperate.

Mayor Poole debuts on the Season 2 premiere airing Friday, Sept. 23.

Ramsey played police informant Anton Briggs on Dexter’s fourth season. He also appeared on the short-lived NBC series, Outlaw. His film resume includes Con Air, The Nutty Professor, and Pay It Forward.
