This Is Dick Wolf's Favorite One Chicago Actor

Dick Wolf is a legend in the entertainment industry. He's created some of the most successful TV series of all time, and while his career dates back several decades, his first creator credit on a show goes to 1989's "Gideon Oliver." He had numerous other hits to his name throughout the 1990s, but he really knocked it out of the park by bringing to life a little show by the name of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." The show is still on the air, making it one of the longest-lasting television programs of all time, but Wolf isn't resting on his laurels just yet. 

While he didn't create the first installment of the "One Chicago" franchise, "Chicago Fire," he was a writer and executive producer for the show. He'd go on to help develop all of the other series under the "Chicago" banner, including "Chicago P.D.," Chicago Med," and "Chicago Justice."

Wolf has brought numerous characters to life and brought joy into countless households. But all this success begs the question: Who's Dick Wolf's favorite "One Chicago" character? He's never outright stated who it is, but based on who's gotten a ton of screentime, we can make an educated guess.

Hank Voight has appeared in five of Dick Wolf's shows

You've likely heard of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's about time for people to put some respect on the Dick Wolf Cinematic Universe. Many of Dick Wolf's shows inhabit the same reality, and this can be seen in how some characters will start on one show and move into another. It's a fun way to treat fans to something special that they get by paying attention to all of the series. 

However, one character has been found in Wolf's biggest hits of all time, namely Hank Voight (Jason Beghe). He got his start on "Chicago Fire" back in 2012, and appropriately enough for the windy city, Hank's gone with the wind to various other departments. Over the years, he's also shown up in recurring roles on "Law & Order: SVU," "Chicago Justice," "Chicago Med," and "Chicago P.D." That's more than can be said of any other character in the franchise, and if another "One Chicago" property ever materializes, it'd be a safe bet he'll crop up there at some point, too. 

The only other character who comes close is Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who's appeared on every "One Chicago" series except for "Chicago Med." However, that show is still going strong, so there's always a chance for a cameo down the line.
