Who plays Dr. Randall Shentu on Chicago Med?

Dr. Randall Shentu is quietly becoming a formidable force on Chicago Med. The character seemed like he was going to be an ally for Goodwin (S. Empatha Merkerson) and the rest of the staff, but the more screen time he was afforded, the more it became clear that he has a more nefarious agenda.

Shentu is poised to be a major figure for the rest of season 7, and given the hot water Goodwin finds herself in as a result of the Vascom scandal, it’s safe to assume that the character is going to be a representation of the medical board’s concern.

With all this in mind, here’s a brief rundown of the character and the actor who plays him.

Johnny M. Wu stars as Dr. Randall Shentu

Dr. Shentu is played by Johnny M. Wu. The actor attended Stuyvesant High School in New York and went to Binghamton University to study finance. He decided to change his major to theatre before long, and completed a Master’s degree from UC San Diego in 2009.

Wu has since been a regular presence on film and television. Some of his most notable film credits include Limitless (2011), Tracers (2015), and Hold Fast, Good Luck (2020).

He had a brief role in the Martin Scorsese short film The Audition (2015), opposite Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, and he recently appeared starred in the Denzel Washington-directed drama A Journal for Jordan (2021) with Michael B. Jordan.

Impressive as his film career has been, Wu’s television career might even be stronger. He made his TV debut on a 2009 episode of Cold Case, and has since gone on to make guest appearances in 24, Person of Interest, The Carrie Diaries, and Blue Bloods.

It’s unclear how long Wu’s stint on Chicago Med will last, or if his attempts to slowly turn the tide on Goodwin’s tenure at the ED will be successful, but given the actor’s memorable performance, we’re excited to see what happens next.
