Dylan McDermott LA --> Vegas Cast Pilot

Dylan McDermott to Star in Fox Airline Comedy Pilot LA —> Vegas

Ladies and gentlemen, this is your dramatic-leading-man-with-comedic-tendencies speaking…

The Practice‘s Dylan McDermott has signed on to star in Fox’s airline comedy pilot LA –> Vegas, TVLine has learned. 

McDermott will play Captain Dave, the pilot of Flight 1710. Dave is described as “All-American” and “cocky, but also a baby… a likable narcissist who feels connecting with his passengers is just as important as flying the plane.”

The Will Ferrell- and  Adam McKay-produced single-camera ensemble workplace series follows a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world. It is set on the Friday night flight from LAX to Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday.

McDermott’s TV credits include American Horror Story, Hostages, Will & Grace, Ally McBeal and Stalker.

    Cool! I had forgotten that he’s funny, and the show has a good pedigree, so I think it is at least worth checking out.

    An actor with exactly one facial expression headlining a comedy? This one is dead on the runway. Worst actor on the planet who can only rely on raising and lowering his voice to show his character’s moods. Come on Fox, you got a hit with ‘The Mick’, you can do better than a Dylan McDermott comedy.

    I’d rather he was back in a Stalker reboot. And since I’m cranky this A.M. I want Human Target back, too.
