Dylan McDermott of Law & Order: Organized Crime appears ready to get back into the thick of things. Oh, he’s walking, too.
See, McDermott has been steaming up the TV screen during his time on the Dick Wolf crime drama. He plays Richard Wheatley, who was found guilty of the murder of the wife of Elliot Stabler, played by Chris Meloni.
Yet that’s not part of the scene he’s sharing in this Twitter post. Take a look at him stylin’ and profilin’ for the camera.
Fans of the Law & Order: Organized Crime star are all in for his video and post.
One fan writes, “Happy New Year to the best ‘villain’ to happen to 2021. Thank you for your contribution!”
‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Fans Do Express Their Love For McDermott
This fan is revved up for more of McDermott’s character. “Can’t wait for more Wheatley in 2022” the fan writes.
In more Law & Order: Organized Crime references, a fan writes, “Thank you for being one of the good parts of 2021. They are far and few between, but having you on #OrganizedCrime is definitely one of the good parts :)”.
An overall fan of the actor pops this in the post, writing, “Dylan, your [sic] my favorite actor. Have a great New Year and I look forward to seeing more of your work.”
That about wraps up the love fest for McDermott. It is deserved, too, as he has been bringing the heat as Wheatley. From watching advance promos for next Thursday’s new episode, it looks like Stabler is going to be squaring off with his nemesis once again.
Organized Crime airs on NBC at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. This upcoming episode will have some crossover flavor as SVU has a storyline that bends over into the spin-off. As you might know, Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T star in SVU.
Fans Wnat To Know If Actor Would Be Up For Spin-Off. He Replies
A great debate is upon us. Outsiders, the question before us today is this: Could it be possible for Law & Order: Organized Crime fans to have a Richard Wheatley spin-off?
Well, when it comes to Dylan McDermott, he is not too sure.
“I don’t think people can handle that,” he says in an interview with E! News. “It’ll probably have to be [a] half-hour, I think an hour will be like, ‘Oh man.'”
McDermott does take an immersive approach when he is playing Wheatley.
“By the time I put the clothes on and I start to daydream about what I’m going to do, I let Wheatley take over, whatever that incarnation is,” McDermott says. “I really try to step away from him and just let him go and let him be whoever he is.”
