Dylan McDermott

Dylan McDermott's original name was Mark Anthony McDermott. He changed his name after his father's 3rd wife's miscarriage; the miscarriage baby's name was supposed to be Dylan. McDermott was very close to his father's 3rd wife, and she was the one who inspired and motivated him to act.

You probably know him best from his roles as Bobby Donnell in The Practice and Lt. Carter Shaw in Dark Blue, although he has played many other parts also. You might have also seen Dylan in the movies Twister, Steel Magnolias, Hardware, Miracle on 34th Street, Texas Rangers, Party Monster, Wonderland, Runaway Jury, The Messengers, Burning Palms, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

McDermott has also made appearances on the shows Tales from the Crypt, Will & Grace, Big Shots, and is currently a main character on FX's American Horror Story.

American Horror Story Quotes

Fate. Destiny. Luck. The prisons of man. People pass the time, enjoying the choices life provides--coffee or tea, right or left--as if it matters. We are all just spinning on the wheel. There is but one way to keep off the wheel. It's not youth. It's not beauty or true love. I know how to stay off the wheel. I control my fate. I have survived because I know one must be willing to destroy anyone, anything, even the ones you love, to keep the gods in check.

Elsa

[to Gloria] Those girls were a cool stream of glacier water. My heart bloomed as they nourished it. And now it's all gone. There's nothing left but the dust and the scorpions inside of me. I was never destined to feel love.
