It's always a thrill to catch one of Broadway's own gracing the screen, so it was a special treat when Broadway.com got to spend some time with Billy Elliot rabble-rouser Will Chase as prepped for his latest TV gig. Chase took a day off from Broadway's Billy to shoot a dramatic arc as firefighter Pat Mahoney on the hit FX series Rescue Me. Chase's transformation into Mahoney, who first appeared last season, was a bit different this time, however. The character returns to the show as a terminal cancer patient, one brought out for a last night on the town by his firefighting brethren (including Broadway alum and series regular Steven Pasquale). What did that mean for Chase exactly? Follow the photos for an exclusive look at his day on set, from the makeup chair to the final take.
