July 2005 - Julian McMahon (Victor Von Doom in "Fantastic Four") stars in the FX original series "Nip/Tuck." Set in the sexy world of Miami's South Beach, "Nip/Tuck" cuts beneath the surface of the superficial world of plastic surgery, dramatically revealing the complexities and fragile nature of patients trying to mask their psychological flaws through physical cosmetic enhancement. McMahon plays Dr. Christian Troy who shares a booming plastic surgery practice with his best friend Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh.)

"Nip/Tuck" was named one of the 10 Best Television Shows of the Year by AFI and has also been nominated for a Golden Globe Award, a GLAAD Award, and a Golden Satellite Award. McMahon was nominated for a Golden Satellite Award in the Best Actor in a Drama Series category.

McMahon recently starred in the independent film "Prisoner" for the writer/director team of David Alford and Robert Lynn. McMahon portrays a critically-acclaimed Hollywood film director who, while scouting an abandoned prison for his new film, is taken hostage by an omniscient Jailer.

McMahon starred as Detective John Grant on the award-winning series "Profiler." He then joined the cast of the WB hit show "Charmed," where McMahon played tortured demon Cole Turner, who created both havoc and romance for the Halliwell sisters. McMahon also completed a lead role in the independent film, "Meet Market" with Elizabeth Berkeley, Alan Tudyk and Aisha Tyler.

Hailing from Australia, McMahon had a lead role in the primetime drama, "The Power, The Passion." He then joined the cast of the hit series "Home and Away," which also starred Guy Pearce, Heath Ledger, Martin Henderson and Naomi Watts. In 1992, McMahon broke into American television when he was cast as Ian Rain on the daytime drama "Another World."

On the big screen, he appeared in the feature film "Wet and Wild Summer" and co-starred in "Chasing Sleep." His stage credits include Sydney and Melbourne productions of "Love Letters."
