Dylan McDermott has always been a bit of an ‘always the bridesmaid’ type actor, and while he’s currently taking the lead in the new US TV show American Horror Story, he’s also lined up one of his more usual supporting roles in Dog Fight for Warner Bros.
According to Deadline, McDermott will play Tim Wattley, a political consultant who runs the congressional campaign for a South Carolina candidate (Zach Galifianakis), who gets into a increasingly dirty campaign against Will Ferrell’s fellow candidate. Jason Sudeikis also recently joined the cast, alongside Sarah Baker and Katherine LaNasa.
Jay Roach will direct, with shooting set to being in November.
