You probably know him as "Will Truman" from the TV sitcom "Will and Grace". Now, Emmy-Award winning Eric McCormack returns to television in the crime solving drama, "Perception."
Eric McCormack has starred in numerous films and countless TV projects over the past two decades. He's currently starring in Gore Vidal's "The Best Man," on Broadway, and he has two films in the works: the drama "Barricade" and "Knife Fight" with Rob Lowe.
In Perception, McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, an eccentric neuroscience professor with paranoid schizophrenia who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. The doctor's mind may be brilliant, but it's also damaged. He struggles with hallucinations and paranoid delusions brought on by his schizophrenia yet also a masterful understanding of the way the human mind works.
Daniel considers some of his hallucinations to be a gift. They occasionally allow him to make connections that his conscious mind can't yet process. At other times, the hallucinations become Daniel's greatest curse, leading him to behave in irrational, potentially dangerous ways.
Daniel's mental condition and offbeat manner make it difficult for him to achieve the close friendships and intimate relationships he craves. He's in his element when solving an intricate puzzle or a coded message. But in unfamiliar situations, he can quickly become overwhelmed, and only his favorite music and a crossword puzzle have the power to make things right again.
Perception airs Monday nights on TNT. You can keep up to date on all the news about the series by following @PerceptionTNT or searching #PerceptionTNT on Twitter.
