'Chicago P.D.' Enlists 'Popular' Grad for Season 5 (Exclusive)
Chicago P.D. is getting political.
The NBC cop drama has tapped Popular grad Scott Bryce to play an Illinois congressman, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Bryce will guest-star as Scott Graynor, a politician who is very pro-police and friendly with Voight (Jason Beghe). He doesn't have the greatest allies in Chicago and finds himself in hot water when he's discovered at a crime scene with no memory of what happened.
The actor is set to appear in the eighth episode of the season, with a possibility that he could reprise the role in the future.
Bryce, whose other credits include As the World Turns and The Good Fight, is repped by Bret Adams Agency.
Other season five guest stars on Chicago P.D. include Wendell Pierce, Sleepy Hollow alum Zach Appelman, Quantico grad Annabelle Acosta and Mykelti Williamson (24).
This season has seen several other cast changes, including the departure of Sophia Bush, the return of Jon Seda and the addition of new series regular Tracy Spiridakos.
Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
