In the Chicago P.D. episode “Night in Chicago,” Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) goes undercover to bring down the longtime head of a criminal enterprise and becomes entangled in a situation that tests his allegiances as well as his conscience. Meanwhile, politician Brian Kelton (John C. McGinley) meets Alderman Ray Price at a fancy restaurant.
When Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) walks in, Kelton tells him he wants Price to publicly endorse him for Mayor. Price doesn’t mince words with Kelton: “I keep telling you man, you’re bad for my brand…even though I like you, more or less.” When Kelton leaves the table, Price leans in and gives Voight valuable information regarding a big time supplier.
Ray Price is portrayed by actor Wendell Pierce. He’s known for his roles on Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (James Greer, SEE LINK ABOVE), Suits (Robert Zane), The Odd Couple (Teddy), Ray Donovan (Ronald Keith), The Michael J. Fox Show (Harris Green), Treme (Antoine Batiste), and The Wire (Det. Bunk Moreland), among others.
Pierce is also well recognized for his roles in the films Selma (Rev. Hosea Williams), Bad Moms (Principal Burr), Horrible Bosses (Detective Hagan), and Ray (Wilbur Brassfield), to name a handful. Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10 pm on NBC, right after Chicago Fire. [BONUS: Stream any NBC show watch LIVE on any device with NBC UNIVERSAL app available here. Download is FREE.]
