Dylan McDermott, the still-smokin’ Golden Globe-winning actor (familiar as Bobby Donnell on The Practice) has joined the cast of the Playwrights Horizons’ Three Changes. He will star opposite Maura Tierney; together they play an Upper West Side couple named Nate and Laurel. They live comfortably until Nate’s Hollywood brother Hal pays them a visit and turns their cushy married life upside down.
The play, written by Nicky Silver, begins performances on Aug. 22 with a slated Sept. 16 opening. For tickets and more information, visit www.playwrightshorizons.org.
McDermott is a Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award nominee for his portrayal of Bobby Donnell on David E. Kelley’s Emmy Award-winning series “The Practice.” McDermott returned to television in fall 2007 with the Mark Gordon-produced “Big Shots” and was last seen on screen in The Pang Brothers’ “The Messengers.” In September 2006, McDermott returned to the stage in Eve Ensler’s new play The Treatment, which opened the Impact Festival 2006, a New York City-wide arts festival as part of the Culture Project. McDermott was nominated for a Drama League Award for his performance. Among his other film credits are “Edison,” “Wonderland,” “Home for the Holidays,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Hamburger Hill,” “Miracle on 34th Street” and “In The Line of Fire.”
McDermott appeared in Neil Simon’s Biloxi Blues on Broadway and in Golden Boy directed by Joanne Woodward at the Williamstown Theater Festival.
