The Damages actress— who appeared as Selleck’s love interest in the pilot for the cop-family drama—has been dropped from the cast for creative reasons. The recurring role will now be played by Rescue Me’s Andrea Roth.

No explanation was given for the recast. The few scenes in the pilot that featured Moniz will not be reshot with Roth.

What do you think? Will Roth have better chemistry with Selleck than Moniz would have? Am I the only one who kinda-sorta only ever pictures him opposite Courteney Cox? Answers below.
