Firefighting is a tough job, something that NBC’s “Chicago Fire” tries to show every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. So a tough actor had to play the role as battalion chief. Enter British actor Eamonn Walker, best known to TV fans as Kareem Said from the groundbreaking HBO show “Oz.” If you watched the short-lived “Kings” he starred on there as well, or you might remember him from his role as bluesman Howlin’ Wolf in the movie “Cadillac Records.” For those who didn’t have the chance to see him and Denzel Washington go toe to toe on Broadway in “Julius Caesar”, you missed the undeniable pleasure of seeing two great actors at the top of their game. Despite growing up in England, Walker says it was an American actor that inspired him to get on stage.
