after two seasons Law & Order: Organized Crime As villain Richard Wheatley, Dylan McDermott is leaving one Dick Wolf TV universe for another as he takes over as the new lead FBI: Most Wanted next Julian McMahonexit of On Tuesday, April 12, actor Supervisory Special Agent Remy Scott will make his debut as the charismatic but formidable new leader of the fugitive task force, leaving Jesse Lacroix (McMahon).
“He’s a seasoned veteran,” McDermott told ET about Scott. He’s not just a cop catching bad guys, if you will. There’s an important reason why he’s still doing this and he’s doing some psychological work inside him to move that forward.”
As a result, the actor says, “I think that’s what sets him apart from everyone else.”
While fans will watch Tuesday’s episode, “Covenant,” co-written by showrunner and executive producer David Hudgins, to learn more about their reasons for chasing the Bureau’s list of the most notorious and dangerous criminals, they’ll watch Scott. Stepping in as a team investigating a series of murders tied to forbidden love between a young teen and her older boyfriend.
Although he is the new leader of the task force, the team is definitely going to have some questions – who is this guy? Why is he taking – “As they try to sum me up,” McDermott says, Scott “must win them over.” But Hudgens assures fans that “he’s good at what he does, and motivated to do what he does and I think comes with the team.”
While Hudgens teases that there is always “room for drama” between team members, going forward, Scott is going to prove to be a welcome addition to the team. “He’s a natural born leader,” McDermott says. “He’s a compelling character. He’s a complex character. And he has his own demons.”
That said, Scott, who will hopefully prove to be another fan-favorite, is far from the personality he’s built on the latest law & Order By-product. “The remarkable thing about Richard Wheatley is that although he was a bad guy, people loved him,” McDermott says, before adding, “I’m an actor. I can play different roles.”
The actor assured that anyone who watched both of Wolf’s TV universes would not see the same character. “These are wildly different people with wildly different agendas in life,” McDermott says, explaining that “I was playing some suspicious people along the way, and now was the time to play someone nice again. . and Remy Scott is that character.”
“I mean, this is a character that is fully realized when we meet him,” he continues. “You see this guy drives, and he’s in action right away. We’re in a case right now, and you’ll see so many different aspects of this guy that I think you’re going to see Richard Wheatley by the end of the episode. Will quickly forget about that.
McDermott concluded, “I think you’ll be like, ‘This is Remy Scott.'”
