It came as little surprise, then, when at age 13 McDermott landed his first film role -- that of the boy who announces the creatures' presence to William Hurt in the M. Night Shyamalan chiller The Village (2004). From there, McDermott's acting career was off and running, with the young thespian being cast in the PBS comedy "Windy Acres" and then landing a leading role opposite Kris Kristofferson in Jay Craven's Disappearances (2006).
After moving to Los Angeles in 2006, McDermott continued to land plum roles in both film and television, receiving an Independent Spirit Award nod for his performance in the critically acclaimed indie drama Frozen River.
Fueled by energy drinks, vodka and nostalgia for their younger, wilder days, a group of aging best friends travels back in time to 1986, where they get the chance to relive the best year of their lives. And their time machine? Well, it's a hot tub.
