Chicago Med star has guest role on new Chicago series The Bear

Chicago Med fans will be delighted to see that our beloved Dr. Daniel Charles, Oliver Platt makes a guest appearance in new FX/Hulu series The Bear.

In the Chicago made series, Oliver Platt plays Uncle Jimmy, who may or may not be affiliated with organized crime. IMDb does not reflect this role so it is unknown how often and in what episodes Platt’s character will appear, but judging by his character, he will likely pop up in the future.

You won’t be left in suspense for long. On June 23, Hulu dropped all 8 episodes of The Bear, which is set and filmed in Chicago last summer and stars Shameless’ very own Jeremy Allen White who plays Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto, a classically trained and super successful chef who has taken over the family sandwich shop which previously belonged to his brother Mikey who died by suicide and left the restaurant to Carmy.

In the first episode, Carmy’s sister Natalie ‘Sugar’ Berzatto (Abby Elliott) told Carmy that their Uncle Jimmy wanted to buy the property and Carmy dismissed the idea, stating that he wanted to fix it. 

In Episode 2, Uncle Jimmy (Oliver Platt) shows up to tell Carmy that Mikey actually owed him a substantial amount of money and again, offers to purchase the restaurant from Carmy, and Carmy once again declines the offer.

In addition to White, this half-hour series stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colón-Zayas, with Edwin Lee Gibson and Matty Matheson in recurring roles.

The series is produced by FX Productions and is streaming now, exclusively on Hulu.
