Well after “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon and Mayor Rahm Emanuel did their Polar Plunges and hopped into their heated cars, stars of the NBC dramas “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” showed up at North Avenue Beach ready to swim.Taylor Kinney (Lt. Kelly Severide), Jesse Spencer (Lt. Matt Casey), Naperville native David Eigenberg (Christopher Herrmann), Charlie Barnett (Peter Mills), Jon Seda (Det. Antonio Dawson) and others braved the frigid waters, as did a record-breaking 3,200-plus polar plungers who raised an estimated $1 million for Special Olympics Chicago.
