Julian McMahon Set To Star in New FBI Spinoff Series FBI: MOST WANTED
Julian McMahon, best know for his role in series Nip/Tuck and playing Doctor Doom in the Fantastic Four films, has been cast in the lead role of an FBI spinoff currently in the works at CBS called FBI: Most Wanted.
It would follow the division of the FBI tasked with tracking and capturing the notorious criminals on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. It will air as a planted spinoff episode, or backdoor pilot, of “FBI” that will be broadcast in spring 2019. The project has received a series commitment from the network.
McMahon is said to be playing a character named Jess LaCroix, described as “an ‘agent’s agent’ who is at the top of his game, and oversees the team from the FBI’s Most Wanted Unit, which is assigned the most extreme and egregious cases.”
McMahon most recently appeared in the Marvel-Hulu series Runaways. He’s a decent actor, and this FBI: Most Wanted series sounds like a perfect project for him.
The series will be written and executive produced by Dick Wolf and Rene Balcer. Balcer has served as a consulting producer on FBI and has previously collaborated with Wolf on multiple iterations of the Law & Order franchise.
