“One Chicago creator “Dick Wolf directed Brian Geraghty to play Officer Roman. He pushed the actor to join the team and is not even likely to make an exception to his standard seven-year contract to let Geraghty join the cast every year, according to Limit line. For this reason, his decision to leave the show doesn’t seem to come as much of a surprise to those who work with him. Talk to TV line, executive producer Matt Olmstead explains how it all went downhill. “[Geraghty] there were a lot of choices, and we flirted with him and introduced him to what the show could be like,” Olmstead said. And we were wondering if we were going to get him… He was like, ‘I don’t know if I can commit to a seven-year contract. This sounds great, but I have to do it year after year’, which Dick doesn’t do very often. But the deal was done. “
Geraghty left the show after two seasons to pursue other options, Olmstead says The Hollywood Reporter. “[He] called like a gentleman and said, ‘Hey, I have other things going on. I feel like I’ve done my job and I’m just letting you know that I’m going to pursue those things,” Olmstead said, (via Partitions). All told, fans got a chance to know Officer Roman and Wolf got to work with his actor of choice. Everything seems to be going for the best.
