JFK's Grandson, Jack Schlossberg, Makes His Television Debut

He played a cop named "Officer Jack Hammer" on the season finale of Blue Bloods.

Perhaps politics isn't in the cards for JFK's grandson, after all. Jack Schlossberg, the son of Caroline Kennedy and the only grandson of the late President Kennedy, made his acting debut on Friday night, playing a character named "Officer Jack Hammer" (yes, really) on the CBS police procedural Blue Bloods.

He appeared in the season eight finale of the show in an episode titled "My Aim Is True."

To commemorate his role, Schlossberg shared two photos on his Instagram account of his days on set, all captioned "I don’t make the rules, I just pretend to enforce them—Cash me tonight on season 8 finale of Blue Bloods my dream come true!! Best show in the entire world."

He also posted a video of his clip on the show as it aired, with the caption, "A line fraught with tension."

Back in May of last year, when Schlossberg, who is currently attending Harvard law school, started making more frequent public appearances (at the Met Ball and presenting an award to former President Obama), many assumed he was planning to enter the family business and preparing to run for public office; however, this role on Blue Bloods suggests that he might be following in the footsteps of some of his relatives who preferred to go the Hollywood route.


Patrick Shriver Schwarzenegger, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, for example, starred in the film Midnight Sun with Bella Thorne earlier this year, and his own sister Rose has starred in a comedy web series called End Times Girl Club, which can be found on Youtube.

But when speaking about his future on the Today show last year, Schlossberg said, "I’m still trying to make my own way, figure things out, so stay tuned."

We certainly will.
