Dylan McDermott will star in Fox’s comedy pilot “LA>Vegas,” Variety has learned.

“LA>Vegas” is an ensemble workplace comedy about a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world, set on the Friday night flight from LAX to Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday, who all share the same goal: to come back a winner in the casino of life.

McDermott will play Captain Dave, the pilot on Flight 1710, who’s described as all-American, cocky, but also a baby. He’s a likable narcissist who feels connecting with his passengers is just as important as flying the plane.

The 30-minute, single-cam comedy was created by Lon Zimmet who penned the pilot and will serve as executive producer with Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and “Modern Family” co-creator Steve Levitan, who will direct the pilot.


I’ve added stills from the first episode of Dylan’s new series Stalker to our gallery.

Dylan McDermott is watching every breath you take.

The American Horror Story and Hostages actor is set to star in Kevin Williamson’s new pilot for CBS, E! News has confirmed. The Vampire Diaries and The Following boss’ untitled project is a psychological thriller that focuses on a pair of detectives who handle staking cases for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD.

McDermott, who also starred on The Practice, will take on the role of Detective Jack Larsen, a recent transfer to the Threat Assessment Unit from New York. Jack’s healthy confidence and quick thinking has gotten him into trouble in the past, one he hopes to leave behind.

So what does this mean for McDermott’s other CBS drama, Hostages?

While it has yet to be officially canceled, McDermott’s casting all but confirms that Hostages will not be renewed for a second season.

The drama, which also starred Toni Collette, debuted to 7.5 million viewers back in September, but its finale, which aired in January, only attracted 4.8 million viewers, as well as a low 1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.


It’s a bold assertion, but one that we feel it’s justified to ask. The 15-part thriller, debuting on Channel 4 in January, follows a family caught in the middle of “a grand political conspiracy” – one that sees the president’s surgeon Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) taken hostage in her own home just hours before she is due to perform a life-altering operation.

It’s a tense thriller that blurs the lines of morality, with FBI man and chief hostage taker Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) doing anything he can to fight for his cause – whatever the costs.

Here Hostages stars Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott discuss the show, and why it’s tackling subjects that are on everyone’s lips.

What attracted you to this particular role?
Dylan McDermott: I always respond to material. Whether it was “The Practice” or “American Horror Story” and certainly “Hostages,” the scripts were all spectacular. And I really responded to Jeffrey’s writing. I thought that he did an incredible job writing it. This character is very special. He walks the line between good and bad, somewhere in the grey area. I was instantly intrigued. You also don’t know where it’s all going – you think you know, but all of a sudden your mind is blown.

Toni Collette: When I first read the script, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a real page-turner that’s subtle and smart. The character of Ellen I found interesting in that through her experience of this hostage situation, she actually grows and finds her strength. I found that really exciting. One of the things that drew me to the script is that all of the characters are so complex and three dimensional and relatable and real. Nothing is just black and white and as an actor that’s what you want. It’s really interesting dealing with characters that seem real.

Dylan’s character has a reason for doing what he is doing, and a good reason at that, but is there the potential of the character becoming too sympathetic?
Dylan McDermott: I think that I’m doing bad things for a good reason. Anytime you say that, you know that you are getting a mixed bag with a person. I think that there’s a lot of duality in this man…

Did you have to do a lot of special training?
Dylan McDermott: I met with the FBI in LA and we talked at length about everything, from dress code to terrorism. The FBI is really changing and I was really educated about it. I met with some really cool people that were really helpful.

The character of Ellen is a different person depending on whether she’s dealing with her family, the kidnappers, the President or the people at the hospital. How much was that a factor in your decision to take the role?
Toni Collette: I’m always drawn to characters that seem real, and by that, I mean complex. Here’s a woman who is wearing several different hats. She has a very high pressured job that she’s incredibly successful at. She’s a mum. She’s a wife. She’s somewhat compromised at home even though she’s successful at work. And the thing that I really love about her the most is quite simple: I think here’s a woman who, in a way, has been toeing the line her whole life and she’s put in a situation which makes her walk straight across that line and figure out who she really is and discover her true self and I love that. I think it’s about finding one’s strength and living authentically.

There’s a kind of understanding between Duncan and Ellen isn’t there?
Toni Collette: Yes. I loved the dynamic between Duncan and Ellen. It’s not overt; it’s a very subtle and strange understanding that grows unto something much stronger and more confusing. In a way, despite what he’s doing to her family, Duncan enables Ellen to grow and frees something up in her.

How will international audiences react to the show?
Dylan McDermott: One of the themes of the show is terrorism, and terrorism is on everyone’s mind. It taps into a global concern. There’s an emotional thread to the show that many people also have to deal with.

TV is doing really well in comparison with movies right now, would you agree?
Toni Collette: Yeah, there’s such great writing in TV at the moment, especially for women
