Hostages star Dylan McDermott has joined The Following creator Kevin Williamson's new police thriller pilot.
The as-yet untitled pilot will focus on the hunt by LAPD Threat Assessment Unit officers to find dangerous and methodical stalkers.
McDermott has been cast in the role of Detective Jack Larsen, the latest member of the Threat Assessment Unit.
Larsen recently transferred from New York and is trying to remain cautious on the job in order to stay out of trouble.
McDermott came to prominence as Bobby Donnell on the legal drama series The Practice, which earned him a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award nomination.
More recently he starred in the first two seasons of American Horror Story, created by Glee's Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
McDermott can currently be seen on Channel 4 as FBI Special Agent Duncan Carlisle in the CBS drama series Hostages.
