These Two Chicago PD Actors Almost Played Brothers On Another Show


Planned as a modern-day twist on the classic tale of two feuding families, the proposed NBC TV series “Hatfields & McCoys” transposed the story to contemporary Pittsburgh and re-cast the two families as waging their legendary grudge match amid this updated, urban setting (per The Hollywood Reporter). As it turns out, “Chicago P.D.” actors Jesse Lee Soffer and Patrick Flueger were both cast in the series. And, as seen in this YouTube clip of the two being interviewed by Steve Harvey, they weren’t the only “Chicago P.D.” actors to be cast in the series. As is revealed in the clip, Sophia Bush, the former Detective Erin Lindsay, was lined up to play their sister on “Hatfields & McCoys.”

However, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, while a pilot episode of “Hatfields & McCoys” was produced, the show failed to be picked up. But, in another bit of coincidental casting, Soffer, Flueger, and Bush would all end up reuniting when the trio joined the crime-busting team of what was then just another new cop show.
