As an actor, Dylan McDermott's innate inner fire set him apart from many of his less dangerous television contemporaries. McDermott showed the makings of a leading man early on, turning in solid supporting work in such diverse feature films as the grim Vietnam War story "Hamburger Hill" (1987) and the comedic drama "Steel Magnolias" (1989), amidst a cast of leading lady all-stars. He edged up toward movie stardom with the lead in the cult sci-fi thriller "Hardware" (1990) and held his own alongside screen icon Clint Eastwood in "In the Line of Fire" (1993). With the Jodie Foster-directed "Home for the Holidays" (1995), McDermott demonstrated a knack for lighter fare as well, but it was his intense portrayal of driven criminal defense attorney Bobby Donnell on David E. Kelley's acclaimed legal drama "The Practice" (ABC, 1997-2004) that finally gained the actor critical recognition and sex symbol status. McDermott's track record after "The Practice," however, was spotty at best, with such features as the supernatural thriller "The Messengers" (2007) and the short-lived cop drama "Dark Blue" (TNT, 2009-2010) failing to ignite sparks with audiences. Ironically, his next hit project came when he starred in the gleefully gratuitous cable shocker "American Horror Story" (FX, 2011- ) - an anthology series that would change not only its setting, but its core cast each season. As a fiercely committed performer willing to take creative risks, McDermott was sure to shake things up on screens for years to come.
