Brennan Brown Chicago Med

Chicago Med Taps Beauty and the Beast Actor as... the New Gregory House?

Sorry, Gregory House: There’s a new cranky TV doctor in town, and he’s coming to Chicago Med.

Brennan Brown (Beauty and the Beast, Person of Interest) will recur on NBC’s upcoming Chicago Fire offshoot, TVLine has learned exclusively.

He will play Dr. Sam Abrams, a cantankerous, irritable but brilliant neurosurgeon. Per the official character description, he has “no patience for young, cocky, privileged, hot-headed doctors who lack his old-school work ethic. Though his bedside manner is lacking, his surgical skills make up for his astringent attitude.”

Brown’s myriad TV credits also include The Blacklist, The Good Wife and Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle.

Chicago Med opens its doors Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 9/8c on NBC; no word yet when Brown will make his debut.

    There is only one Doctor Gregory House, and Hugh Laurie is the only one who can play him. Any other cranky, brilliant, TV Doctor has an uphill battle to measure up to House.

    SOOOOO excited to see more of Brennan Brown. He’s outstanding and too often underused. Nice choice!

    Nope, no way – there may be other characters LIKE Dr. Gregory House, but there is and was only one House, as played by Hugh Laurie. I’m not interested in a pale imitation of the real thing.
