Steven R. McQueen, who was seen fighting the vampires, witches and werewolves in Vampire Diaries will be seen fighting the Fires now! Yes, the news is that alum of The Vampire Diaries has just joined Chicago Fire!
Steven R. McQueen, who exited everyone working in the CW’s supernatural series back in February after six years of playing Elena Gilbert’s (Nina Dobrev) younger brother Jeremy, has landed the recurring role of Jimmy Borelli, a new candidate at Firehouse 51, for season four of NBC’s drama. Borelli makes a dramatic entrance on his first day at work that doesn’t sit well with Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker).
We have to admit, we never would have picked Chicago Fire as McQueen’s first post-TVD gig just because he’s spent the past few years heavily campaigning to join a superhero show! The TVD alum (Steven R. McQueen) tweeted at the Arrow writers room many times about guest starring on the comic book show as Nightwing and he was serious about his pitch.
Steven R. McQueen twitted “I started tweeting the Arrow writer’s room and I was like, ‘You should be me to guest star as Nightwing. I wrote them jokingly and they ended up tweeting casting. So I am putting that energy in the universe! It’s on camera now, it’s gotta happen!”.
So folks now Steven R. McQueen will be seen playing a role of a real-life superhero…a fireman!Hope This Fireman excites us the same way like the CW’s supernatural series!
Chicago Fire season four premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10 p.m. on NBC. So don’t forget to catch it!
