Julian McMahon, who played Doctor Doom in 2005’s Fantastic Four and its sequel, has joined the cast of Marvel’s Runaways.
Based on the Marvel Comics series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, the upcoming Hulu drama centers on six teenagers who can barely stand each other but must nevertheless unite to defeat a common foe: their parents, whom they discover are secretly members of a group of supervillains called the Pride.
McMahon has been cast as Jonah, described only as “a pivotal player” in the Runaways’ fight against their parents.
“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,” co-showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage said in a joint statement.
Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature, Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, a loud-and-proud nerd; Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, a budding wiccan with a carefully crafted goth facade; Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, whose model-perfect exterior disguises an eagerness to explore her identity and desires; Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, a brash, purple-haired social justice warrior; Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, a lacrosse-playing heartthrob with flashes of engineering brilliance; and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, the youngest member, known for her positive outlook and deep yearning to belong.
They’re joined by Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, James Yaegashi, Kevin Weisman, Brigid Brannagh, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, James Marsters and Ever Carradine. Runaways debuts Nov. 21 on Hulu.
