Dylan McDermott, known for his dramatic work on TV shows like American Horror Story and The Practice, takes a serious turn for the comedic in The Campaign, playing an intense political operative named Tim Wattley.
While McDermott, 50, was the new kid in the comedy world, he tells The Hollywood Reporter that he broke the ice quickly while working opposite Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell.
How? By getting naked.
“I was totally nude in front of Will and Zach for 12 hours,” McDermott tells THR about his very first day of shooting for the Warner Bros. comedy. In the scene, which was cut from the final version of the movie, his character walks out of the bathroom naked and complains about the lack of hot water.
