Julian McMahon 'would love to' bring back the demon Balthazar in 'Charmed' movie
If Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs get their Charmed movie greenlit at Netflix, they can count on Julian McMahon to bring back Cole/Balthazar. McMahon confirmed during CBS’s presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday that if Milano and Combs want the on/off demon to be part of the reunion, he’s all in.
He added, “Yeah, I would love to. I had such a great time on that show. I mean, I came on that show, I think it was six episodes I was meant to be on the show and I stayed for three years. So that’s how much I enjoyed it. So yeah, for sure. And I think it was the 150th episode I went back for? Oh, I’d do that in a heartbeat.”
Milano spoke to Mario Lopez at Access Daily in October that she and her former co-star Combs have discussed the possibility of making a Charmed movie as a “way to celebrate [their] fans.”
“I mean, Holly and I talk about Charmed movies a lot, you know,” she said at the time. “Because they have the new Charmed, which is on The CW, and it’s a very different storyline…”
She added, “But we have been talking about maybe doing some films for Netflix. And so I think that would be really fun and I think it’s a great way to celebrate our fans that have stuck with us for such a long time but still give it new blood.”
Milano and Combs played sisters of the non-magical variety for an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in October.
