Her casting follows the departure of Laurie Holden who had been cast to play troubled ER surgeon Dr. Hannah Tramble. However, DeVitto will not be replacing her role. Instead, she will be playing Lilly Manning, a pregnant ER pediatrician.
For those who know and love DeVitto for her role as crazy Nanny Carrie on One Tree Hill, she will be joining one of her former OTH cast members in the Chicago franchise. Sophia Bush, aka Brooke Davis on OTH, has starred as Erin Lindsey on Chicago PD for the past two seasons. Dick Wolf announced that he is planning a four-way crossover with the Chicago shows in February, which means we will finally get to see these ladies back on screen together!
Chicago Med premieres Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 10/9c on NBC.
