Chicago Med Casts Jeff Hephner

Chicago Med Recruits Jeff Hephner's Fire Character as New [Spoiler]

Chicago Med is bringing back a familiar franchise player as the hospital’s newest addition.

Jeff Hephner will reprise his Chicago Fire role as Jeff Clarke on the medical drama — but he’s no longer a firefighter, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Hephner appears in the Season 1 finale, in which viewers will learn that Clarke went back to school and is now a fourth-year med student rotating through the emergency department. He will return for multiple episodes in Season 2.

Hephner recurred on Season 2 of Fire before his character transferred to another firehouse. The actor went on to star in TNT’s short-lived Agent X and recently had an arc on CBS’ own ER-set series, Code Black.

Fans of all things Chicago, are you tickled by this piece of crossover casting?
