Esai Morales by Michael Yarish/Fox Esai Morales by Michael Yarish/Fox
NYPD Blue alum Esai Morales has joined CBS' Jericho in the recurring role of Col. Hoffman, a career military man and Iraq War veteran who has not heard from his wife since the day of the attacks. Morales, who most recently costarred on Fox's short-lived Vanished, is set to appear in six of Jericho's seven episodes ordered for mid-season. Anybody else remember when Esai got up in Sean Penn's grill in juvie prison? Good times.
