In a recent interview Curtiss Cook, who plays former Chicago mayor Otis ‘Douda’ Perry, sat down with uinterview founder Erik Meers to discuss how he related to his character. He said, "From the acting standpoint, I have to relate to him. I have to find something that connects with him and me so I can try my best to continue to make him a three-dimensional person," Cook said, adding, "One thing that I really connect with is that he’s one of the most honest characters on the show. I say that because you rarely hear him lie. When he says he’s going to do something for you, nine times out of 10, he’s going to do that, but you might not like the way he does it."
