Why Miles Thomas From Blue Bloods Looks So Familiar
Although his time on “Blue Bloods” was brief, Miles Thomas was a memorable character that fans still recall to this day. In the Season 2 episode, “Innocence,” the title reflects the ongoing theme of the interweaving stories — innocence, the loss of it, and proving it.
The episode dealt with a lot, including three teenagers being viciously murdered in the park, and Miles’ portion of the episode hit hard. He had been in prison for 18 years. He was arrested by Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), identified by a rape victim as the rapist, and imprisoned for the crime. The only problem was, Miles wasn’t actually guilty of anything. Unfortunately, the victim of the traumatic and violent crime misidentified him and that was the condemning evidence that put Miles behind bars.
Almost two decades later, his case was reopened with new DNA evidence proving his innocence. This lingers heavily on Frank, who helped put the wrong man behind bars. Not only has an innocent man been sitting in prison for nearly 20 years, but the actual rapist has been running free for all that time and can’t be convicted for it now.
Miles’ story goes hard because it’s a violent reminder that the justice system is flawed and can ruin innocent lives. And here’s where you may have also seen Josh Burrow, the actor who plays Miles.

Burrow’s early projects included Sex and the City and Law & Order

In the Season 4 episode, “Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda,” the main cast has to deal with pregnancy, its struggles, and what it means for them. Carrie is struggling to admit to her past decision to have an abortion at the age of 22.
Chad is a relatively small part of the grand scheme of things. He’s a waiter at The Saloon and has been for many years. Carrie decides to visit The Saloon and sits in Chad’s section. Chad doesn’t recognize her when he approaches her to take her order. This sets Carrie off because according to her, Chad is the man she slept with 13 years ago in an encounter that got her pregnant.
Burrow also made a few appearances on “Law & Order” and its spin-off, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” between 2002 and 2010. This has become a relatively normal thing in many actors’ careers since the beginning of the original “Law & Order” in 1990. Since then, it’s turned into a massive franchise with many interlocking shows that make up one awesome crime-fighting universe.
In a Season 2 episode of “Criminal Intent” called “Bright Boy,” Burrow played a character named Adolph Kulik. In Season 9, he portrayed Bailey O’Doyle in the episode “Love on Ice.” Finally, in Season 19 of the flagship series, Burrow played Evan Corliss in “Rapture.” While each of his characters only appeared for one episode, he made a little mark for himself in the “Law & Order” universe.
Burrow lent his skills to horror in All Dark Places
In 2012, Josh Burrow starred in the horror thriller “All Dark Places,” which is about the son of a struggling couple befriending a clown that apparently lives in his closet. Burrow plays Christian, the young boy’s father. Christian has struggled with drugs and alcohol.
Falling into particularly negative habits, he nearly lost his family, but after getting clean, Christian’s wife welcomed him home.
Unfortunately, the clown that appears in his son’s closet isn’t just a figment of the young boy’s imagination, because Christian begins seeing him as well. At first, Christian thinks he’s having nightmares and seeing hallucinations during his waking hours of those nightmares, but the longer the film runs, the more ambiguous it becomes. Is the clown actually there or is it a manifestation of Christian’s own problems? Why does the clown look like John Wayne Gacy, the infamous real-life serial killer clown? One of his friends even suggests that maybe the clown is the spirit of Gacy.
The trailer features some disturbing imagery of Christian’s character being blurred with the mysterious clown, suggesting that there may be something very wrong with Christian.
