McMahon attached to ‘Chairman’

'Nip/Tuck' star would return to TV

“Nip/Tuck” star Julian McMahon is attached to a TV adaptation of the four Stephen Frey novels based on the character Christian Gillette.

Rights to the books have been optioned by management and production shingle Roar, which is in discussions with potential writers to pen the pilot. Execs are also looking for a broadcast or cable network interested in the project, which Roar is hoping will become a series.

Frey is a bestselling author who specializes in the financial world. He has vast experience with the machinations of Wall Street, with a resume that includes working in mergers and acquisitions at J.P. Morgan.

McMahon, who is repped by UTA and Roar, appeared for six seasons on the FX medical drama “Nip/Tuck,” and had a role last year in the Bruce Willis bigscreen pic “Red.” He would play Everest Capital topper Gillette, whom Frey introduced in “The Chairman” and who became a recurring character in three other books.

Frey is repped by literary agent Cynthia Manson and APA.
