Actor Bio

Yuri Sardarov stars as Brian "Otis" Zvonecek, Firehouse 51's rescue specialist, on the NBC drama "Chicago Fire." Otis is also a bartender at Chicago's favorite local pub, Molly's.

Shortly thereafter, Sardarov appeared in "The Ides of March" and the Academy Award-winning "Argo." During the summer of 2014, Sardarov co-starred in the off-Broadway play "Becket."

Dividing his time between Los Angeles and Chicago, he enjoys cooking and playing basketball.
