    Chicago PD is one of my favorite TV shows and I would definitely love to be on this show. I have never done any professional acting but acting and improvising is a career I would like to get into. I’m a singer so I am used to being in front of an audience. I’m a 44 year old black female and one of my dreams is to be on one of Dick Wolf’s drama crime shows. Law & order or Chicago PD. I look forward to a return email. Thank you.

    I’ve been called the most interesting man. Also I look like Kenny Rogers along with several other actors. I was a firefighter/EMT for twelve years. Would enjoy the possibility of being an extra on the show.

    I have an awesome storyline that involves Voight’s character. I would love to talk to the writer’s about it. I know he is very complex and it is a very intricate story.
