According to Entertainment Weekly, American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott has joined CBS’ high-profile political thriller pilot Hostages. McDermott has been cast alongside the show’s previously announced star, Toni Collette. Hostages is about family caught in the middle of a grand political conspiracy that will change their lives forever. McDermott will play Duncan, a righteous FBI agent who is at the center of a conspiracy involving the President “but whose role will come as a surprise.” McDermott starred in the first season of FX’s horror series and appeared in the second. Nothing has been announced regarding his participation in the third season. If the Hostages pilot is picked up to series, the casting would normally make a return to AHS less likely since the actor would typically have to get permission from CBS to appear on the other show — especially if Hostages is slated for fall. But we’ll update this post if we get more clarity on this. Hostages is written and directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Homeland) and executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Jeffrey Nachmanoff, Omri Givon, Rotem Shamir and Chayim Sharir.
