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

Brennan Brown Chicago Med

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.
