Former “The Practice” star Dylan McDermott has signed on for both a new TV series and two new features reports Variety.
Ry Russo Young co-wrote and will direct the feature “Nobody Walks” about a Los Angeles family that takes in a stranger who winds up disrupting their lives. John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby and Jane Levy also star.
McDermott will also play the father of the main character in Stephen Chbosky’s “Perks of Being a Wallflower”. The story revolves around a boy whose life dramatically changes as he learns about secrets buried deep in his past during his freshman year of high school.
McDermott just signed on to the FX pilot “American Horror Story” from the creators of “Glee”. He’ll shoot the movies first before doing the series.
