Will Estes plays Jamie, the youngest of the Reagan siblings, who grows from a beat cop into a dependable sergeant. Estes has been on the show since its first season, so it’s safe to say that he’s definitely a familiar face among fans at this point. But before the role of Jamie, Estes was leaping and running to make it to a coveted Bon Jovi performance in the music video for “It’s My Life.” That’s right, in the 2000 music video, Estes stars as Tommy, who, after taking out the trash for his mother, rushes past dogs and semi-trucks to meet with Gina (Shiri Appleby) to watch Bon Jovi play in a tunnel.
Estes told Wingman Magazine that he got the role after filming with Jon Bon Jovi on the movie “U-571.” The lead singer was impressed with Estes’ workout routine between filming scenes. In the magazine interview, Estes said he was more than happy to accept the offer, but it was also his most physically demanding role. “… And that music video was physically one of the hardest things I’ve ever done as an actor because I had to run sprints and jump off high surfaces for three twelve-hour days,” Estes told Wingman. “I’m glad I did it when I was 21, and I’m not too sure I could handle doing it again because it was tough.” Estes got the type of workout even a CrossFit enthusiast would refuse. But he also got to be a part of Bon Jovi history. With over a billion views, “It’s My Life ” remains Bon Jovi’s most popular music video on YouTube.
