Jeffrey DeMunn

A Walking Dead fan favorite is coming to NBC’s Chicago Fire.

In his first TV role since playing the idealistic Dale on the AMC zombie hit, Jeffrey DeMunn will guest star on the upcoming firefighting action drama. DeMunn plays a charming, life-long construction worker who’s caught in a harrowing situation and must rely on Severide (Taylor Kinney) to get him through it. DeMunn has previously had roles on Law & Order and films like The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist.

Though NBC is giving an early launch to several of its new fall shows (like post-Olympics sneak peaks of comedies Go On on Aug. 8 and Animal Practice on Aug. 12). Chicago Fire heats up the network a bit later, debuting Oct. 10.
