Dylan McDermott's Mother Deemed Him 'A Vagina Warrior'

9/26/2013 2:42pm EDT
Dylan McDermott
Thanks to his mother, popular feminist Eve Ensler, Dylan McDermott has been ballyhooed as a "vagina warrior."

As a teenager, The Campaign actor was adopted by The Vagina Monologues playwright, just before his father married Ensler. The two grew close and, as a result, he became more comfortable than most men about discussing women and their sexuality.

In an illuminating interview with Queen Latifah on her new talk show, the American Horror Story star revealed that Ensler's passion for women's rights was definitely passed on to him.

The 51 year-old admits, "I'm very comfortable with th...

TV Pilot Review: 'Hostages'

9/24/2013 11:41pm EDT
CBS usually chooses more of the same every TV season, so I commend them for actually picking up a non-procedural show. I’m so pleased. Also,  I often have a hard time watching shows on CBS because I think they move really slowly. Sorry to CSI and NCIS fans, but your show bores me to death (even against other procedurals like SVU. Hostages moves at the speed of a show that could be on any other station. It’s bordering on cable quality.

Hostages presents us with a hero, Dr Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette), and a villain, FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). Ellen is supposed to operate ...

CBS' 'Hostages': Does It Have Your Vote?

9/24/2013 10:45am EDT
CBS's newest thriller starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott is just like a real-life politician: slick, impeccably styled and often displays touches of brilliance.  Unfortunately, it works too hard and too fast to get your vote.

Collette plays Dr. Ellen Sanders, a surgeon who was selected to operate on the President. McDermott is a rogue FBI agent who takes her family hostage in order to force Sanders to kill POTUS during surgery.  Toss in Tate Donovan has her filandering, lying husband, and her darling children--a daughter concealing a pregnancy and a drug dealin' son--and poor Dr. S...

Dylan McDermott is back on American Horror Story: Asylum this season and you could say he’s playing quite the different character—even if in his first scene, there were echoes of his first season appearance (it took place in a psychiatrist’s office.)

If you aren’t caught up on Asylum this season, you may want to stop reading now.

It was recently revealed that McDermott plays Bloody Face in the present time and is in fact, the son of the original, played by Zachary Quinto.

On onscreen nudity and his refusal of a body double for American Horror Story:

After spending some time with FOX, my TCA (Television Critics Association) blog comes to an end with a look at sister network FX, which brought to Beverly Hills four returning series and a new one. Not to mention one big moment that I may unfortunately never be able to get out of my brain.
