If you're as excited as we are for the premiere of "Chicago Justice," then you totally get why we want to know everything about the cast of the newest NBC legal drama from Dick Wolf, the same guy who brought us the Emmy Award-winning show "Law & Order," not to mention "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago P.D." Let's take a look at the faces set to grace our screens in March 2017 and find out where they were before…
Philip Winchester as Peter Stone
Spoiler alert! Fans of "Law & Order" might recognize this lead character's famous family connection. He's none other than the son of Ben Stone, the New York City district attorney played by Michael Moriarty. Peter Stone, who serves as Cook County's Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau is, much like his hard-headed father, relentless in his pursuit of the truth.
Jon Seda as Antonio Dawson
Fans of "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago P.D." will undoubtedly recognize this familiar face. Antonio Dawson is an assistant state's attorney investigator who's partnered with Detective Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter). Antonio has left the Chicago police department's intelligence unit to work on Peter Stone's team. He's one of the very few characters in history to be spun-off twice in the same TV franchise.
Monica Barbaro as Anna Valdez
As the assistant state's attorney who serves as second-in-command to Peter Stone, Anna Valdez got the job by impressing her superior with her vigorous pursuit of the law. However, her youth and inexperience may lead her to make questionable choices to attain her goals.
Carl Weathers as Mark Jefferies
The Cook County state's attorney is a man with political ambitions. As the boss of Peter Stone and his team, Mark Jefferies understands that public perception is often just as important as following the letter of the law. Like Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), State's Attorney Jefferies previously appeared on "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago P.D.," making him a well-known and much-loved character.
Joelle Carter as Laura Nagel
Laura Nagel is the fearless state's attorney investigator who won't leave any evidence overlooked and doesn't mind ruffling feathers to get what she wants. Don't let her tough exterior fool you, though, because she also has a soft heart — especially for the victims who deserve justice.
