Chicago Med Admits The Wire's Marlyne Barrett as Series Regular

Another series regular is scrubbing into Chicago Med.

Marlyne Barrett, best known for playing Nerese Campbell on The Wire, has joined the NBC medical drama, our sister site Deadline reports. Barrett’s character, Maggie, is described as a “multi-tasking force of nature, a battle-ax with wit and sass.”

(And, yes, she’s always played different characters.)

Barrett is among several recent additions to Chicago Med, including new showrunners Andrew Schneider and Diane Frolov (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire).
