Law & Order: Organized Crime star Dylan McDermott showed off some questionable fashion choices but solid bowling form in a recent Instagram video.

In the video, McDermott rocks a bucket hat and some dark sunglasses indoors, but he still picked up a strike. He also made sure to control his excitement and to look cool on his walk back to his seat. A feat even more impressive, considering the aforementioned bucket hat.

Law & Order: Organized Crime star even scored the scene with Gene Wilder singing “Pure Imagination” from the classic 1971 film Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

And the strike didn’t go unnoticed. Some big celebrities gave him props in the comments. Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead gave him praise hands emojis. Michael Rosenbaum, who is most famous for playing Lex Luther in Smallville, joked about how many takes it took to get that shot.

There likely won’t be as much time bowling coming up for McDermott as he tweeted it was time to go back to work. Season 2 of Law & Order: Organized Crime begins shooting soon and McDermott is ready to get back into New York City’s underworld.

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Has Big Plans

Every great hero needs an equally evil villain. And in an interview with TV Line earlier this year, Dylan McDermott said he believes his character, Richard Wheatley, could shape up to be one of TV’s best villains. And as Law & Order: Organized Crime was renewed early for its second season, it has the time and talent to set up an epic showdown between Wheatley and Detective Elliott Stabler.

“Stabler definitely needs a foe, a formidable foe. Otherwise, the show wouldn’t work. Because of that kind of conflict, that standoff is so necessary on a show like this. So, you have to have somebody who can take him on, and I think that Richard can take on Stabler. In fact, he looks forward to it. That’s what turns him on. You know what I mean? He’s one of these criminals that like to leave a note to let you know he was there. There’s something about it that turns him on, the getting away with it. I think he looks forward to this challenge, you know?”

McDermott grew up in New York, and used to visit some of the places in the city where some of the most infamous mob murders took place.

“I love the crime world,” McDermott said. “I grew up in New York, and I was seeing the mafia around town, watching them. And I remember going with my dad to Umberto’s Clam House, where Joey Gallo got killed in Little Italy. I remember when Paul Castellano got killed in front of Sparks Steakhouse.”
