Is this even allowed by the laws of the universe? Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney — whom you’ve no doubt confused once or twice — will share the screen for the first time when the latter guest-stars on the former’s midseason Fox airline comedy LA to Vegas.
Per EW.com, McDermott’s Captain Dave will match wits with rival pilot Captain Steve (Mulroney), who has a magnetic, rock-star charm.
Mulroney recently appeared on FX’s American Horror Story: Cult and starred in CBS’ short-lived medical drama Pure Genius. His other TV credits include Shameless, Crisis, New Girl, Enlightened and Friends.
