Dylan McDermott has signed on to star opposite Toni Collette in the CBS pilot Hostages, the network announced today. The show, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, is based on an Israeli series and follows a surgeon (Collette) who gets enmeshed in a political conspiracy when she's asked to operate on the president. McDermott will play an FBI agent somehow involved in the case. Sorry, somehow sexily involved in the case.
