Source: Straits Times OnlineAmerican actor Dylan McDermott is not in the industry for the fame or the glitz. So when someone in Singapore thought he was Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, he was totally okay with it.Speaking to Life! in an interview at Mandarin Gallery, he says with a chuckle: "I was in an elevator in the hotel here and a guy came up to me and said, 'Nice to see you, Mr Levine.' And you know what, I'm okay with that."If you confuse me with other actors, it's fine. As long as you recognise me as an actor at all - maybe because you remember me from something that I did, but just can't really place me, I think that's fine."He is totally okay if you still refer to him as "the guy from The Practice", even though the popular TV legal drama he starred in ended eight years ago.McDermott, 51, was in town for the launch of a watch exhibition organised by luxury brand Montblanc at its flagship store in Mandarin Gallery.Looking suave in a sleek charcoal grey suit for the interview, he was charming and polite, chuckling often and cracking corny jokes now and then, even at his own expense.Referring to his most famous role to date as brilliant if dour lawyer Bobby Donnell in The Practice, he says: "I played the same role on The Practice for eight seasons, and it was a great show, but there's only so many different ways of saying 'Your honour, this is my client.'"
