Date of Birth: October 26th 1961
American actor, known for his role as lawyer and law firm head Bobby Donnell on the television legal drama The Practice.
McDermott starred as Chris in the 1989 film Twister about a man who tried to rescue his girlfriend and daughter from a crazy family. The same year brought the Neon Empire, a movie about the rise and fall of one man in Las Vegas. However, his first big break as an actor was in the acclaimed hit film In the Line of Fire. Through his connection with Clint Eastwood, McDermott was able to land his first major gig in The Practice. The show expanded McDermott's stardom, and he made People's list of the "50 Most Beautiful People In The World 1998" with the magazine calling him a "a prime-time heartthrob". He nabbed the distinction again in 2000. Despite his success on The Practice, McDermott (and five other starring cast members) were cut from the show. Executive producer David E. Kelley cited "economic and creative realities" as a result of pressure from ABC to reduce costs.
