With a professional acting career that spans nearly 29 years, Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award-nominated actor Dylan McDermott has built an impressive resume of diverse and memorable acting roles.
On Tuesday, April 12, 2022, McDermott debuted in his starring role as Remy Scott on CBS’ FBI: Most Wanted, during the third season of the hit Dick Wolf series. The drama focuses on the Fugitive Task Force, which relentlessly tracks and captures the notorious criminals on the Bureau’s Most Wanted list. Recently, McDermott garnered accolades for reprising his fan-favorite role of Richard Wheatley, Elliot Stabler’s (Chris Meloni) nemesis, on the second season of Dick Wolf’s NBC series, “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”
McDermott had his first breakthrough role in the film In the Line of Fire (1993) opposite Clint Eastwood. Since then, his numerous additional films include Miracle on 34th Street, Steel Magnolias (1989) alongside Julia Roberts, Home for the Holidays (1995), Olympus Has Fallen alongside Gerald Butler and Morgan Freeman, The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) as the father with Kate Walsh, Emma Watson and Logan Lerman, and the comedy The Campaign with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.
Also, he starred alongside Sophie Turner in Josie, which was released in March 2018. The film follows Hank, played by McDermott, who is a solitary man living a dull existence until he meets a high school student, Josie (Turner), with whom he develops a questionable relationship. McDermott also appeared in the indie film Blind (2017) with Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore. He played an indicted businessman whose wife (Moore) has an affair with a blind novelist (Baldwin).
In 2020, McDermott was seen in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series Hollywood, for which he earned an Emmy nomination in the category of Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series. Set in the 1940s, the series follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown—no matter the cost. The show is a behind-the-scenes look into Hollywood’s Golden Age during the 1940s, and the buried history of unfair systems and social inequalities spanning race, gender, and sexuality that many aspiring actors, writers, and directors faced as they tried to make it. McDermott played Ernie, who runs a service station where cars, as well as Hollywood heavyweights, come to get serviced.
In fall 2019, McDermott returned to Ryan Murphy’s long-running hit anthology series American Horror Story for its ninth season, titled American Horror Story: 1984. The FX series served as a homage to the slasher films of the 1980s. McDermott played Bruce, a murderous hitchhiker. Additionally, in fall 2019, McDermott took part in Ryan Murphy’s 10-episode Netflix comedy series The Politician, which revolved around the political aspirations of Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy Santa Barbarian. McDermott played Theo Sloan, Astrid’s (Lucy Boynton) father, and husband to January Jones’ character.
In 2018, McDermott starred in the comedy series LA to Vegas. McDermott portrayed Captain Dave, an over-the-top pilot in the workplace comedy about a flight crew on the weekly Friday night flight from LAX to Vegas.
For eight seasons, McDermott portrayed senior defense attorney Bobby Donnell on the ABC legal drama The Practice, which garnered him a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series and an Emmy nomination. His other TV credits include FX’s American Horror Story’s first two seasons, American Story: Murder House (2011) and American Story: Asylum (2013) opposite Connie Britton and Jessica Lange; TNT’s cop drama Dark Blue (2009-2010); and the CBS dramas Hostages (2013-2014) and Stalker (2014-2015).
Born in Waterbury, Conn., and raised in NYC as of his early teen years, McDermott lives in Los Angeles when he isn’t in production in New York City. His birthday is Oct. 26. Follow him on Twitter @DylanMcDermott and Instagram @dylan.mcdermott.
