Jennifer Beals Goes on Ride-Alongs for 'Chicago Code' Role (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 16th 2011 1:00PM
While preparing for her role in 'The Chicago Code,' Jennifer Beals said she went with police on ride-alongs as a way to bring authenticity to her character of Teresa Colvin. But, if she learned anything, it's that being a cop is an extremely difficult job, she said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

"I spent time on ride-alongs with detectives, watching them how they set up crime scenes, how they interviewed people, and, you know, tried to learn as much as I could from them," said Beals. "I realized that in real life I would last, really, 30 seconds."

"I now have such a great affinity for them and I feel, like, so proud of them," she continued, adding that, when she sees cops on the street, she now thanks them personally for their service.

Chicago Code is one of the best new shows. I hate to see it cancelled. It needs another chance.

Chicago Code: being from chicago and in my mid-sixties I have lived thru both of the Daley family regimes. The
Chicago Code is the real deal. There was a great book written about Chicago and its cast of political corruption
starring the origional Richard J. Daley for those of you who would like to see how dangerously close this program came to the 'PEELING OF THE WILD ONION, get the book BOSS BY MIKE ROYKO, it is a truly great read get the book
and you will realize how much political pressure must have been brought down on FOX-TV to cancel this one

Love this show...why would they cancel? So real to life, maybe it needs a different time-slot. So sorry to see this cancelled.
