FBI: Most Wanted has found its new man in charge, and executive producer Dick Wolf didn’t have to look far to find him. Dylan McDermott is joining the CBS series following Julian McMahon’s departure as FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jesse “Jess” LaCroix, per Deadline.
McDermott has appeared on Wolf’s Law & Order: Organized Crime as mobster Richard Wheatley since the start of the NBC series. He was a series regular in the first season, but he signed on as a recurring member of the cast for season two.
His time on the NBC series will wrap before he joins FBI: Most Wanted. McMahon’s final episode will air on March 8th. McDermott’s first appearance on the CBS series will run at some point in April. No details were revealed about his role, but McDermott will play a new character.
FBI: Most Wanted airs on Tuesday nights on CBS.
