Dylan McDermott Might Appear in American Horror Story: Coven

Jason McDonald

When you’ve got a good thing going, why stop?  One of the interesting aspects of the “American Horror Story” series is that, while each season  follows different storylines, they tend to reuse actors in new roles.

One such actor is Dylan McDermott who played the lead in the first season of “American Horror Story” and had a semi-prominent role in “American Horror Story: Asylum.”  So far he’s been absent from the current series, Coven, but that might change soon.

While speaking with TVLine, McDermott was asked whether or not he’d be back again for a third performance.  To which he replied with this:

I start a movie called Survivor in January, with Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson and Angela Bassett, 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.

So there’s a chance, however small, that we could see Dylan return again this season.  Given the obligations to his new movie project and the work he has to do for his current TV series, “Hostages”, it might not leave him much time.  Perhaps he’ll have a voiceover piece? Or maybe he’ll appear in the finale in some critical role? It’ll be interesting to see if McDermott can fit the series into his schedule and how that works into the storyline.

        I’ve always thought of McDermott as one of the people that you call “That guy”. http://www.cracked.com/article_15074_the-20-best-that-guys-all-time.html

        I was hoping to see him, in fact, painfully anticipating, in the first episode right at the end. The first episode objected males (until the gang rape scene) so much, I felt it was a calling for the very end, I mean, imagine it- there is a knock on the door of the witch’s academy and the tongueless answers the door, there is a man with his back turned, he turns around, it’s DM, tongueless gets a look of familiar terror- The introduction of the Warlock!
