Esai Morales (La Bamba, Mi Familia) has been cast as the new lieutenant on NYPD Blue, TV Guide Online has learned. The actor — most recently seen as Juan Miguel Gonzalez in The Elian Gonzalez Story — replaces the exiting James McDaniel. Look for the new boss to be a potential love interest for Charlotte Ross (Beggars and Choosers), who joins the force next month.
