The Chicago Med Star You Likely Forgot Starred In Jurassic World

Let loose upon the moviegoing populace in 2015, "Jurassic World" and its larger-than-life dinosaur stars lumbered to international box office dominance right out of the gate, eventually racking up over $1.6 billion in ticket sales worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). The fourth outing in the multi-release "Jurassic Park" franchise of big-budget, sci-fi action adventures, this entry like the others in the series was built around the concept that resurrecting monstrous dinosaurs carries equally outsize, unintended consequences.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the movie features Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Bryce Dallas Howard, among others. Also among the cast that would be variously terrorized, swallowed whole, or eaten piecemeal by an assortment of CGI dinosaurs is an actor in a small role who would later achieve serious fame on one of NBC's hit "One Chicago" shows. So exactly who is the star of the medical procedural "Chicago Med" who made a memorable appearance in the blockbuster smash "Jurassic World"?

Chicago Med's Brian Tee got dino-crushed in Jurassic World

Well-known and beloved by long-time "Chicago Med" fans, Brian Tee's Dr. Ethan Choi has been a favorite on the medical drama since its premiere, "Derailed." And while his character on "Med" has survived being shot and badly wounded on the show, his character's eventual fate in "Jurassic World" was worse — much worse, actually.

Cast as Katashi Hamada, Tee portrays the commander of the park's Asset Containment Unit. Dispatched to catch the AWOL hybrid superpredator Indominus rex, the ACU team succeeds in tracking down the ginormous T. rex-like creature, only to have the animal grab Hamada and lift him off the ground before dropping and stomping on him. And while fans could be excused for missing his relatively brief on-screen appearance and untimely end in the dino hit, Brian Tee is in fact the "Chicago Med" star they likely forgot turns up in "Jurassic World."
