FashionStyle.com – Season 2 of Chicago PD is going to be full of drama it sounds like. Sophia Bush, who stars as Det. Erin Lindsay, told CelebBuzz that this season you will find out a lot more about her character’s past and will even meet her mother. “You’ll learn a lot more about where Lindsay comes from, you’ll meet her mother, which is just as shocking to her as it will be to the audience.”
A love triangle will also form between Lindsay, who is currently dating Kelly Severide (of Chicago Fire), a fireman, and her partner Detective Halstead. But Bush isn’t too unhappy about that plotline. Bush said, “They really enjoy this toggling between the two guys. But they’re both super handsome and strong, so I’m not upset about it. I’m like ‘Oh I have to hug this one today? Okay!”’
“I’m sure it will be sticky again for Lindsey and Halstead,” Jesse Lee Soffer (who plays Halstead) says. “They obviously still have a connection. Who knows if they’ll take that risk and if Voight will allow that to happen or if he’ll end up killing somebody?”
In other spoiler news, the whole department will be mourning the loss of Jin, the Intelligence Unit’s tech and surveillance expert, who was found murdered. “It shakes everybody up,” showrunner Matt Olmstead tells TVGuide.com, “definitely for the next three or four episodes until people can re-galvanize as a family, but people have some hard feelings about how it all goes down.”
Celebuzz.com – Sophia Bush is a role model to so many young women around the world. In addition to being a great actress, Sophia’s also an activist, inspiring her fans to get involved in their communities. Sophia supports many nobel causes and often takes to Twitter to encourage people to stay informed.
Over the weekend, Sophia’s hard work was recognized as she was honored at National Women’s History Museum and Glamour Magazine’s Women Making History Event. We were lucky enough to talk to Sophia about the event, plus she spilled some secrets about Chicago P.D.’s upcoming season! She even talks about hanging out with Lady Gaga’s dog! See what Sophia had to say in the interview below!
Sophia is known for taking a stand and fighting for what she believes in, and we were glad to see that she was being honored for her achievements. When we spoke with Sophia, we had to ask her how it felt to be honored at the event. Sophia told us, “To get the call and find out I was being given an award today was incredibly surreal. I spend my life talking to women and reminding them of their worth and their potential and through those conversations they do the same for me. To realize that people are paying attention to the things that I sometimes think that I’m doing by myself on my computer late at night is amazing.” We’re definitely paying attention Sophia!
Since so many young girls look up to Sophia, we wanted to know what advice she would have for those girls if she could go around to high schools and talk to them. Sophia said, “I do actually, I speak at quite a few schools and we run a lot of really amazing local chapter programs through ‘I Am That Girl.’ Our whole mission is to get girls to be in love and express who they are, because who they are is enough. They don’t need to be anything else and the world forgets to tell us that, so we really need to tell each other, we need to be each other’s support system.” So true!
We couldn’t let Sophia go without asking her about Chicago P.D.’s upcoming season. Sophia revealed to us, “A lot of really exciting things are going on. You’ll learn a lot more about where Lindsay comes from, you’ll meet her mother, which is just as shocking to her as it will be to the audience.”
On the show, Sophia’s character Detective Lindsay has two love interests. One being her co-worker, Detective Halstead, played by Jesse Lee Soffer, and the other being Chicago Fire’s Kelly Severide, played by Taylor Kinney. When we asked Sophia about the love triangle she told us, “They really enjoy this toggling between the two guys. But they’re both super handsome and strong, so I’m not upset about it. I’m like ‘Oh I have to hug this one today? Okay!’’’ We told Sophia we were fine with seeing her character with either guy and she said, “You know what? Me too! When I work with Taylor I get to play with (Lady) Gaga’s dog, who I’m obsessed with. And you know working with Jesse is also amazing so I have no complaints.” Fun fact: Taylor Kinney is dating Lady Gaga, which is why Sophia gets to play with her dog! So cool!

Yahoo.com – The summer blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has re-introduced audiences to characters beloved since the 1980s, including the titular fighting reptiles, gutsy reporter April O’Neil, and steel-plated villain Shredder. Missing from the lineup is hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones, the turtles’ human foil (and April’s love interest) in the original comics, TV series, and ’90s film franchise. At Comic-Con, director Jonathan Liebesman and producer Andrew Form told Screen Rant that they were interested in making Casey, originally played on the big screen by Elias Koteas, a part of the 2016 Ninja Turtles sequel.
Around the same time that Ninja Turtles devotees were swarming Comic-Con, Koteas’s castmates from the NBC procedural Chicago P.D. were taking him to a midnight screening of the 1990 version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Koteas was 28 years old when he starred as the hockey stick-wielding New Yorker who fights alongside the turtles (played by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop-designed animatronic puppets).
“Most of my [Chicago P.D.] castmates are in their thirties, so they grew up watching it,” Koteas tells Yahoo Movies. “It has nothing to do with me anymore, you know? And I was really just moved by how much joy it brings.”
Koteas, 53, approaches the subject of acting with serious introspection, as befits his alma mater, the Actor’s Studio of New York. So how does a guy like that end up playing scenes with giant rubber turtles? “Quite honestly, my life at that time was in such turmoil. That’s really what I remember,” Koteas admits. “The job was a reprieve from that: going and playing with turtles and pretending I’m this swashbuckling, tree-swinging, rooftop vigilante guy.”
When the Canadian-born actor auditioned, he had no familiarity with the Ninja Turtles comics. What he did have was the start of a very promising career, playing standout characters in films like John Hughes’s Some Kind of Wonderful and Francis Ford Coppola’s Tucker: The Man and His Dream. For him, the appeal of Casey Jones was the character’s generous spirit. “With whatever was going on in my life, it just felt like, ‘Ah, this is appropriate. Let me live out a fantasy of protecting the weak,’” says Koteas.
Once he was cast, Koteas went through martial arts training, though he stuck with the basics. (“It wasn’t like I was this high-kicking karate guy, you know what I mean? You work with what you got.”) The tough part of shooting, as it turned out, was working with Henson’s complex animatronic puppets. “You could be doing it 16 times, until they get it technically right. So it was a challenge to just try to remain curious and focused while they got the mechanics correct with the turtles’ heads and all these things,” he recalls. “But it was fun. Sometimes you gotta just say, ‘OK, whatever study I did, I’m going to toss it out and play.’”
With the success of the sensory-assaulting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles relaunch, the Internet is full of “Where are they now?” pieces about the original film’s cast. But anyone who’s paying attention knows that Koteas has never gone anywhere (though his flowing Casey Jones locks are gone for good). In addition to his current television work — Chicago P.D. and a 2013 stint on The Killing — he’s been a regular presence in movies, with notable roles in The Thin Red Line, Zodiac, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, among many others. In his latest, the independent comedy Jake Squared (in theaters and on VOD Aug. 15), Koteas plays a director whose past selves begin showing up uninvited to his film shoot. Playing Jake at 30, 40, and 50, did he ever picture his Ninja Turtles-era self standing alongside them?
“Yeah, I did think about that!” he acknowledges. But for the most part, the 1990 blockbuster doesn’t cross his mind — except when fans approach him. “I get stopped in the street and it’s like, ‘Hey, there’s Casey Jones!’ There’s nothing but gracious gratitude, if there is such a term,” says Koteas. “So yeah, Ninja Turtles kind of makes me smile when I think about it. But it seems like such a long time ago…. This is probably the most I’ve ever talked about it.”

TVGuide.com – Brian Geraghty has joined the cast of Chicago P.D., according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Boardwalk Empire alum, whose credits also include Ray Donovan and True Blood, will play Sean Roman, Burgess’ (Marina Squerciati) new partner.
Chicago P.D. boss talks Season 2: Jin’s murder “shakes everybody up”
“He was going to be a third generation smelter in Chicago, but he had uncles who had been inhaling copper and nickel,” showrunner Matt Olmstead recently told TVGuide.com of Officer Roman.” He was scheduled to go down that road until they closed the plant down. He also has perspective in his life of, ‘I know what hard work is.’ He’s a guy who really has a bounce in his step and also helps Burgess realize like, yeah, actually the uniform’s a pretty good place to be for however much longer she is going to do it.”
What do you think of the casting?
Chicago P.D. returns Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c on NBC.
TVGuide.com – He may be gone, but Jin definitely won’t be forgotten when Chicago P.D. returns for Season 2 this fall.
“It shakes everybody up,” showrunner Matt Olmstead tells TVGuide.com, “definitely for the next three or four episodes until people can re-galvanize as a family, but people have some hard feelings about how it all goes down.”
In the Season 1 finale, the Intelligence Unit’s tech and surveillance expert was found dead in the final moments of the episode after being confronted by Voight (Jason Beghe) about his snooping into Voight for internal affairs. Jin (Archie Kao) was last seen rushing out of his office and sending a mysterious flash drive to an unknown recipient. “[Archie] didn’t know nor did we. It’s one of those things where the story told was headed in that direction in terms of needing to have a cliff-hanger and a big impact of a season finale and also just show the ramifications of that police work and that unit and street level and no one’s guaranteed anything,” Olmstead says. “It started to kind of gain momentum; like this character can’t survive this.”
Jesse Lee Soffer also laments the loss of Kao. “It was intense. We were very close. We knew right away we were going to miss Archie a lot,” he says. “That’s a hard blow to take, but it made the finale really intense and kind of amazing.”
However, it won’t take long for the team to piece together the clues surrounding his mysterious death, which Olmstead says will be solved within the first episode. “His murder hasn’t been solved yet so you have the team wanting to know what the hell is going on, in particular Halstead, who has never really carried Voight’s water. But then you have Lindsay who’s loyal and maybe even an apologist for Voight,” Olmstead says. “We play the mystery of who killed Jin, and then certainly the ramifications of, once that mystery is solved, how people feel about who did it and why.”
Jin’s death, as well as Voight’s possible connection to it, will divide the unit. “In the first episode, we’re going to definitely focus on Jin and what happened, whether Voight is guilty or not,” Halstead says. “I think we’re going to hopefully wrap it up pretty quick, but we’ll figure out what part of the unit is going to stand behind [Voight] and what part is not going to stand behind him. He looks like a shoo-in but we’ll see.”
As suspicions about Voight’s possible connection to the murder heat up, he will pull those he trusts closer, such as Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), whom Voight hand-picks to fill in for Jin. “We have some fun with it because we have Voight going to Ruzek, who’s right out of the academy and he’s like, ‘You took all these computer courses, right?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, OK, you figure it out,'” Olmstead says. “I’m sure he’ll screw it up and bring somebody else in, but for now, he just dumps him because Voight has some trust issues in that role especially so he wants someone he knows will not be reporting on him.”
Although Ruzek will be less than enthused about his new professional duties, the latest developments in his personal life are a different story. After sharing a kiss with Burgess (Marina Squerciati) midway through Season 1, the two consummated their feelings for each other in a big way in the season finale despite the fact that Burgess was passed over for a promotion because of her dalliance with Ruzek. “It’s tough for her because she likes Ruzek a lot, he likes her so they’re going to try and maintain a furtive relationship,” Olmstead says. “She knows full well what would happen if Voight finds out, but the heart wants what the heart wants. But also she realizes, ‘Hey, uniform isn’t that bad,’ and also, ‘If I don’t get intelligence here, there’s plenty of other departments in Chicago.'”
Burgess’ change of heart about her longstanding desire to join Intelligence will come courtesy of her new enthusiastic partner in uniform, a role which has yet to be cast. “We realized at the end, Burgess wants to get Intelligence, and pining for Intelligence by extension almost makes it look like the uniform is chump work, which we don’t want to do,” Olmstead says. “There are a lot of guys in uniform who want to stay in uniform because once you get a gold shield or once you’re a detective, the politics, the ass-kissing, all the stuff you’ve got to deal with, but when you’re in uniform, you’re out in the car, you’re gone, there’s no boss breathing down your neck so this character really likes the action.”
Olmstead says Burgess’ new partner will add an important new voice to the team, and to the show. “He was going to be a third generation smelter in Chicago, but he had uncles who had been inhaling copper and nickel. He was scheduled to go down that road until they closed the plant down,” Olmstead says. “He also has perspective in his life of, ‘I know what hard work is.’ He’s a guy who really has a bounce in his step and also helps Burgess realize like, yeah ,actually the uniform’s a pretty good place to be for however much longer she is going to do it.”
