Jesse Lee Soffer, avid motorcycle rider and enthusiast, is available to discuss his love for riding, his involvement with the new Harley-Davidson Roadster campaign, his role on Chicago P.D. and his career including other projects he has in the works.
Jesse helps introduce the new Dark Custom Harley-Davidson Roadster motorcycle, Harley-Davidson is taking its new stripped-down, agile bike to city streets via pop-up Bike-Shares to give people a chance to test the bike out in its intended urban environment.
Harley-Davidson borrowed the popular bicycle share concept to showcase how, for as little as seven bucks a day, Americans can own a new Dark Custom™ Harley-Davidson® Roadster™ motorcycle – less than the daily cost of a bicycle share rental in all U.S. cities.
Temporary Harley-Davidson motorcycle-sharing stations showcasing the Roadster will pop-up in select U.S. cities, including Portland, Los Angeles and the Motor Company’s hometown of Milwaukee, just as Roadster hits local dealerships.
ABOUT CHICAGO P.D (WEDNESDAYS 10/9 CENTRAL)
At the center of "Chicago P.D." is Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do ANYTHING to bring criminals to justice.
From multiple Emmy Award-winning Executive Producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city's most heinous offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond.
Handpicked as the head of the Unit is Voight, who has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion and commitment to keeping the city safe. They include Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) who is more levelheaded and "by the book" than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead's partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former "bad girl" who turned her life around with Voight's help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky's partner.
The unit includes a new member in the form of Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs. Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) assist with the unit, but on a daily basis, they work the streets as uniform patrol officers working with Intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love, although she lets her softer, more vulnerable side shine through from time to time.
