In eight seasons of Chicago P.D., fans have yet to see Sergeant Hank Voight find love.

But that may be all about to change. Jason Beghe, who has played Voight in the One Chicago franchise, has teased that Voight and Sam Miller may finally "have one too many drinks and see what happens."

"I love Nicole Ari Parker, and she’s fun to be around and act with," said Jason.

"I think if there is a kind of heat or attraction there, these are two people who are very serious people," he told Us Weekly.

"I would suspect that the danger of that screwing up what they’re both trying to accomplish together, would inhibit them from following through. So if they can fully reform Chicago, I think that they may have one too many drinks and see what happens one day.”

But the 61-year-old warned fans not to get too excited, as he believes both Voight and Sam would consider a romance between colleagues "irresponsible and selfish."

"Just having the possibility is equally exciting for the audience as the actual fact," he added.
