Season four of Chicago Fire premieres tonight on NBC. The Tom Joyner Morning Show talks to actor Eamonn Walker, best known for his role on Oz. Walker plays Battalion Chief Wallace Boden who is in the midst of his own personal changes.

How he prepared for the role:

“It all started with a deputy chief who was a consultant on the show. When we all first walk through the door, we were a bunch of actor that came from LA. We knew nothing about Chicago firemen and the service and how deep that goes.  He instilled in us a passion and the heart of the men and women that are there.”

Will he ever return to the stage?

“Funny enough, I just agreed to do a play this summer. So I’m staying in Chicago.”

Chicago Fire airs on Tuesday at 10p/9p CST.
