The Emmy Award-nominated actor is returning to Law & Order: Organized Crime for a second season. McDermott will reprise his role of Richard Wheatley, the nemesis of Chris Meloni’s Eliot Stabler. In season one, Wheatley won a huge fan following and was made a series regular on a one-year deal. In Season 2, McDermott will play the role of Richard Wheatley, who was arrested and accused of murdering his girlfriend’s boyfriend.
McDermott’s departure from the series came as a surprise to many. The actor had already been acting as Dick Wolf on the FBI’s “Law & Order” franchise. But the internet has been critical of his performance, and McDermott has been enjoying the criticism. Despite this, he said he is enjoying playing a villain in the CBS drama.
According to the NBC website, Dylan McDermott has joined the cast of the hit show FBI: Most Wanted. McDermott replaces Julian McMahon, who left the show after three seasons. He will play Special Agent Remy Scott, who will take over the role after FBI Agent Jess LaCroix’s death. The new cast member also plays an FBI agent.
The series is a hit and has attracted an international audience. McDermott is a native of New York, so he will be an integral part of the show’s new franchise. The show’s return is likely to be a long-awaited reunion for the show’s fans. It airs Thursdays at 10:00 PM ET on NBC. The actors are well-known for their roles, and McDermott’s return to Law & Order is sure to be a welcomed addition.
