“American Horror Story” veteran Dylan McDermott isn’t attached to season 3 of the FX mini-series … but could he be? The actor is the latest name to be tossed into the “Coven” mix.
McDermott, 52, can currently be found on the new CBS drama “Hostages” alongside Toni Collette and Tate Donovan. But during an interview with TVLine, the actor revealed that he could possibly return to “American Horror Story.”
“I start a movie called ‘Survivor’ in January, with Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson and Angela Bassett,” McDermott explained. “But Ryan [Murphy] wants me to come back, and I want to come back. So we just have to figure out the scheduling. To me, [doing ‘American Horror Story’] is always like going home.”
For those that just started watching “American Horror Story,” Dylan McDermott starred in season 1 as Ben Harmon, a psychiatrist who moved his family into the “L.A. Murder House” for a fresh start. While he initially wasn’t signed on for season 2, “Asylum,” he ended up appearing toward the end of the second installment of the mini-series. McDermott returned as Johnny Morgan/ Thredson … or as viewers came to learn, modern-day “Bloody Face.”
Since Angela Bassett is currently in “Coven” as voodoo queen Marie Laveau, it sounds like filming for “Survivor” shouldn’t be too much of an obstacle for McDermott’s return to the FX series.
