Dylan McDermott has been announced as Julian McMahon's replacement on FBI: Most Wanted, and the casting has fans sounding off. It was previously revealed that McMahon is leaving after three seasons. Since Season 1 of FBI: Most Wanted, McMahon has played Jesse "Jess" LaCroix, an FBI Supervisory Special Agent and Team Leader of the Fugitive Task Force. On Tuesday, Deadline reported that McDermott has joined the cast of the hit series, taking over as the team's leader. Most recently, McDermott has been staring as the villainous Richard Wheatley on Law and Order: Organized Crime, alongside Christopher Meloni.
Earlier this month, McMahon announced that he'd be exiting the show by issuing a statement to Deadline. "Over the past few months, the producers of FBI: Most Wanted and I have had discussions about my departure from the show in favor of additional creative pursuits and the transition of my character Jess LaCroix," McMahon said. "These ongoing conversations have given us an opportunity to orchestrate a seamless and productive way for me to leave the show." There are currently no details on who McDermott will be playing in FBI: Most Wanted, but Deadline noted that he is scheduled to make his series debut in April, following McMahon's exit in March. The news of McDermott's casting has social media talking. Scroll down to see what fans are saying.
