While we already know our main cast for the eagerly anticipated and upcoming Runaways series, it turns out Hulu aren’t quite done yet.
Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck, Dirk Gently) has joined the cast in the role of Jonah — an unknown player in the Runaways story, as he doesn’t hail from the comics. And, per the press release, “While his origins and ultimate intentions are unknown, he is a pivotal player in the Runaways’ rebellion against their parents.”
And while he presumably is on the side of the good guys, McMahon is certainly no stranger to Marvel, as he previously played Victor von Doom in the original Fantastic Four duology.
“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,” said Executive Producers and Showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
The synopsis, from Marvel and Hulu, reads, “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.”
