EXCLUSIVE: Even though former “The Practice” star Dylan McDermott has already booked his next TV gig, he’s staying busy on the film side, too.
McDermott, who just signed on to the FX pilot “American Horror Story,” has boarded a pair of features, “Nobody Walks” written by Lena Dunham and Ry Russo Young, and Summit’s “Perks of Being a Wallflower” starring Emma Watson.
Young will also direct the pic “Nobody Walks,” which follows a Los Angeles family that takes in a stranger who winds up disrupting their lives. John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby and Jane Levy currently star.
“Perks of Being a Wallflower” will be helmed and penned by Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the novel. It 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 will play his father.
McDermott will shoot both pics before jumping to “American Horror Story,” from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
He is repped by CAA and Schiff Co.
