Why The Chicago P.D. Cast Looks So Familiar

With a lengthy network run and multiple Emmy award wins under its belt, it’s safe to say that “Chicago P.D.” is a firm fan favorite. Tackling high-stakes crime, city scandal and grisly deaths under suspicious circumstances, the Chicago Police Department’s Intelligence Unit always has its work cut out for the members of the team. Headed by Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), the squad often has to juggle the task of keeping their city safe with complex emotions and hard-hitting backstories.

With a host of fresh faces joining the Chicago fuzz over recent years, recent seasons have been just as jam-packed with popular actors from film, TV, and theater as a seasoned viewer would expect from one of TV’s longest-running procedural series. And although the most famous “Chicago P.D.” cast member, Sophia Bush, left the show in 2017, there are still plenty of people that viewers can easily recognize. Here’s why you might feel like you’ve seen the cast of “Chicago P.D.” before.

Starring as dirty-cop-done-good since the show’s inception in 2014, Jason Beghe’s Hank Voight has remained the linchpin for dramatic action in “Chicago P.D.” Known for his raspy voice and stoic sense of duty, Voight’s reputation for going against protocol is well known to his colleagues and the criminals trying to escape his grip. Before he donned his police badge and uniform, Beghe was best known for appearances in smash hit films such as “Thelma & Louise” (1991) and “G.I. Jane” (1997). Making his acting debut in the 1985 film “Compromising Positions,” he now has over 100 acting credits to his name — from guest appearances in “Murder, She Wrote” (1989-1990) and “The X-Files” (1998) to a role in the superhero franchise reboot “X-Men: First Class” (2011).
