The Chicago P.D. cast will feature a new face for the upcoming episode called New Guard.

For some die-hard fans of the One Chicago shows, though, this won’t exactly be a new face.

The guy who will be playing Dante Torres on Chicago P.D. Season 9, Episode 18, has been featured on several other Chicago shows. But since they were small parts, the show is tapping into this particular actor another time.

According to the synopsis for the new Chicago P.D. episode called New Guard, “Halstead takes a new recruit under his wing during an investigation. The dynamics are challenging, however, and questions arise over the recruit’s complicated past.”

Who plays Dante Torres on the Chicago P.D. cast?

Benjamin Levy Aguilar plays new recruit Dante Torres on the Chicago P.D. cast for Season 9, Episode 18. Aguilar hasn’t been acting for too long, but he does have an online bio that shows off a prior appearance in the world of One Chicago.

Aguilar appeared in 2019 episode of Chicago P.D. as Franco Chavaro. He had a small part in the episode called Doubt, and he must have left a positive impression, because he was brought back for a much bigger role this time around.

Other past credits for Aguilar include playing Rex in the Kristen Bell mini-series The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window, Antonio Rivera in Filthy Rich, and also as a background student during a 2012 episode of Glee.

Below is the promo running for the April 13 of Chicago P.D. that features Benjamin Levy Aguilar as Dante Torres.

Some more news from the world of One Chicago

For any One Chicago fans who may have missed the news, a main character has left the Chicago Med cast. It wasn’t something that they made a big deal about, but the show has moved on pretty seamlessly by bringing back someone from the past.

If you tuned into the show’s recent episodes, you already saw that Dr. Hannah Asher has returned to the ED. Actress Jessy Schram is back on the Chicago Med cast for the rest of the current season.

There has also been a major crossover event between Chicago Med and Chicago Fire that was teased by the showrunners, even though it would have to take place next fall at the earliest. Still, it’s fun to hear that they are thinking about huge crossover ideas again.

As a reminder, the episode of Chicago P.D. where Benjamin Levy Aguilar makes his debut as Dante Torres airs on the night of April 13. And heading into the big night, here is a recap of the last episode of Chicago P.D., which could have a lasting impact on Ruzek.

Chicago P.D. airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
