“Yellowstone” viewers were thrilled when Jefferson White appeared in “Chicago PD” as the shady Sean O’Neal, son of Police Commissioner O’Neal. “I’m weeks behind with Chicago PD but I’m so excited to see Jefferson White on the show even though I have no idea what his role is.” tweeted @benton_whatsup. “He’s one of my favorites at Yellowstone.” Other “Yellowstone” fans followed, with @myra7 tweet“I know his name is Sean around here, but I’ll keep calling him Jimmy.” When you see Yellowstone, you’ll know.” But Jimmy Hurdstrom, the cute, innocent cowboy he plays in “Yellowstone,” is a far cry from Sean, a mysterious character with seemingly nefarious intentions.
Describing his character to TVLine, White says that Sean “has a complicated relationship with the police, and that also means he has a completely different perspective [the case].” White will be a recurring character on Chicago PD this season, and according to showrunner Gwen Sigan, there will both be more of a focus on Sean and his father. “We’re going to learn a lot more about it [Chief O’Neal]’ she told TVLine. “We will learn about his family. We’ll learn where he’s from and how that’s different from Voight [Jason Beghe] and how about Voight.”
With Season 5 of Yellowstone premiering on November 13th, we look forward to getting our Jefferson White fix by then.
