Delroy Lindo stars in Chicago Code playing Alderman Ronin Gibbons, a corrupt politician butting heads with Chicago law enforcement. Lindo met with an alderman and attended an open house which he found helpful for the role. He tells host Robin Milling, "Basically what happens is at an open house people from the neighborhood can come in, make an appointment and air their grievances. In a couple of instances I was sitting in a corner off to the side observing it seemed to me the individuals were mentally unstable. What was interesting was the alderman was not disrespectful and everyone she spoke with was communicated with a seriousness even in the instances when it seemed to me they were quite unstable. They have to be diplomatic and giving people the time of day no matter what on some level." And Lindo says that would never fly with Mayor Bloomberg, "There wouldn't be enough time. The Mayor would be doing that for the rest of his career!"
