Wednesday Morning Man: Charlie Barnett!
Since I don’t think I’ve ever seen an episode of NBC’s Chicago Fire, I wasn’t familiar with Charlie Barnett.
But he has leaped onto my radar this week after the announcement that he will play the much-younger boyfriend of Michael “Mouse” Toliver in the upcoming Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City on Netflix. Tolliver is being played by Looking alum Murray Bartlett.
The 30-year-old actor, a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School, played firefighter/paramedic Peter Mills from 2012-15. He then was a cast member on the ABC series Secrets and Lies and most recently starred in the TV series Valor.
