DR. DOOM Action Julian McMahon Has Been Cast in Marvel's RUNAWAYS Series
In news that excites all followers of Julian McMahon's career, it has been announced by Marvel that he has been cast in the new Runaways Hulu series.
He will be playing the part of Jonah in the series. A mysterious figure who plays an important role in the children's rebellion against their parents. I assume it will be evil, just because it's Julian McMahon, but maybe he is good. There has yet to be any evidence that he's a big bad. As far as I know, there was no Jonah in the comic series of Runaways, so it's a huge mystery as to what role he fully plays. But until then, I've got my bets on evil. Maybe Daimon Hellstrom. That would be an interesting role to play. Another Demon.
I feel like McMahon is a great fit for the series, especially if he does play a villain. McMahon has always done a fantastic job at playing villainous characters who also are relatable. Villains you kinda almost agree with. My first thought is his role from Charmed as Cole. The demon who dates the titular character Charmed. What? I could be right. Fine. It's Phoebe? It's been a long time since I've seen it. Then he played Dr. Doom in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Why's there the Silver Surfer. Even his Nip/Tuck character had incredibly questionable morals, although you always wanted to root for him.
Executive producers and showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage had this to say in a statement:
"We’re incredibly excited to add Julian to our exceptional cast and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the world of Marvel’s Runaways."
Runaways is based on the comic created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona and this is the brief plot summary of the series:
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? “Marvel’s Runaways” is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe–their parents.
The series stars Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano (The Affair, Unforgettable) as Nico Minoru–tough, Virginia Gardner (Goat, Little Bitches) as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer (New Girl, One Day at a Time) as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin (Faking It, Don’t Hang Up, Anti Social) as Chase Stein, and Allegra Acosta (100 Things to do Before High School, Just Add Magic) as Molly Hernandez.
