From ‘Organized Crime’ to ‘FBI: Most Wanted’ by Dylan McDermott

You may forget about Richard Whitley – and if you still can’t, you’ll soon be enough. Dylan McDermott is now Supervisory Special Agent Remy Scott On FBI: Most WantedAnd it may seem a bit strange to see Law and order: Organized crime Star in another Dick Wolf show – technically part of the same universe! – So soon, don’t worry about it.

McDermott is reading comments online about being “too early” (his last appearance as Richard was March 3, and his first appearance as Remy was April 12). “I’m enjoying it,” he admitted while speaking to the press before making his CBS debut. “I think it’s amazing that people actually believe that I’m the character I’m playing. Now, they will see me in a completely different light, from Richard Whitley to Remy Scott. They are very different people and have different agendas. I knew instinctively that I had played the role of some skeptic along the way, and now it was time to play someone good again, and Remy Scott was that character.

When Remy arrives at the first scene, the team immediately begins work, investigating multiple murders involving illicit love between a young teenager and her older boyfriend. “You see so many aspects of this guy that I think you’ll quickly forget about Richard Whitley,” McDermott continued. “By the end of episode 17, I think you’re going to be like this ‘Remy Scott.'”

Shoraner and executive producer David Hodgins agreed, although noting that the authors were not concerned about the image they had in mind for Remy and how it expanded after the casting of McDermott. “The idea was that this guy would have some strength and some lightness and some ability to connect with people, which I think is one of his greatest assets,” he explained. “So I wasn’t worried about Richard Whitley. Especially when we start breaking down the episode where Dylan comes in and then when I start watching his acting, they are very different. When you see him in this episode, and then others move on, you don’t think of Richard Whitley, who, after all, was a great character. “

In fact, McDermott enjoys that people will look back on him Organized crime And Stained. “I’ve never seen it do this before, openly, and I thought,‘ This is great. Let’s play with it, “he said. “It’s exciting for me as an actor to be able to turn a terribly bad guy into a character that’s great.”

What to expect when Remy takes over as team leader, it’s a normal business when they start. “We’re in a case right now, so since they’re professionals and agents, they know they have a job,” McDermott previewed. “Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me.

Hodgins added, “As we begin to unpack more about Remy, you begin to see how the rest of the team responds to him. One of my favorite things about the new strength and vibrancy of the team is that it has a lightness in it, in a good way. I think we can now indulge in humorous moments on the show with Dylan The way he’s playing her is amazing. ” Expect to see him as a great leader, as well as show that he trusts his team to get the job done.

Plus, you don’t see him sharing a moment with each member of the team, but “he’s not just shouting and telling people what to do. He listens to people, “the EP said. As the team leader, he’s the one who finally calls, he welcomes the input of everyone on the team and they can give him a chance and he can get him right back. And it will begin to evolve, for all intents and purposes. “
