‘Beauty and the Beast’ Alum Brian White Joins ‘Chicago Fire’

Firehouse 51 is getting a blast from Beauty and the Beast‘s past.

Brian White is joining the cast of Chicago Fire in a recurring role for Season 4. He will play the role of Dallas Patterson, the new squad captain. It’s a fitting parallel to his Beauty and the Beast role as chief of police, as he once again finds himself in a role of authority. If nothing else, White certainly has the presence to pull off these kinds of roles.

Since leaving Beauty and the Beast at the end of its first season, White has been pretty busy. He just finished up his run on Scandal, and he currently stars on ABC’s big summer drama, Mistresses. With this latest role on Chicago Fire, he joins a Season 4 cast that includes The Vampire Diaries alum Steven R. McQueen.

Chicago Fire returns Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10/9c on NBC.
