Dylan McDermott will star alongside Toni Collette in Jerry Bruckheimer’s newest drama series, Hostages.
The new show revolves around Ellen (Collette), a successful surgeon chosen to operate on President of the United States. Her husband and children are taken hostage in a political conspiracy and it’s up to Ellen to save them. McDermott plays Duncan, an upstanding FBI agent at the center of the conspiracy involving the President. According to Deadline.com,”his role will come as a surprise.”
McDermott was the star of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story and recently wrapped an arc on the show’s second season, American Horror Story: Asylum. McDermott also starred as a senior defense attorney in David E. Kelley’s The Practice, which ran for 8 seasons. McDermott was recently on the silver screen in The Perks of Being A Wallflower.
Ryan Murphy has been busy tweeting all about returning cast members for American Horror Story season 3, but he has yet to sound off about McDermott’s return. If Hostages is picked up as a series, chances are the actor’s role would be limited, if at all, in AHS. McDermott has played crucial roles in the first two seasons, it would be a noticeable loss if he didn’t return for a third season. We’ll have to continue updating our Twitter feeds to see what Murphy has in mind for McDermott in AHS season 3. Fans will be comforted to know they can still get their Dylan McDermott fix with Hostages – if the show makes it past pilot season.
