...trying to find a dozen or so great actors who can portray compelling characters AND do a convincing Chicago accent is nigh impossible. You are wise beyond words in many things, General, but you would never have made a good T.V. producer.
NOTE: The actors who had the accents in the Fugitive were likely extras or under-fives*. That is much easier for a casting director to deliver than a full cast of principles.
* Under five - an actor who has less than five lines in a script. For example, when the principle (actor) races to the crime scene and asks a uniformed officer, "Which way did he go?" and the uniformed cop points and says, "He went that way!!" THAT is an "under-five" actor. They make scale (about $500 a day and that's it - easy to budget and find with casting calls).
