IfAlyssa Milanoand Holly Marie Combs get theirCharmedmoviegreenlit at Netflix, they can count onJulian McMahonto 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.
“Well, if they brought in the character Balthazar, I don’t think you’d want anybody else to play him, that’s for sure,” he toldThe Wrapafter the panelfor his new show FBI: Most Wanted.
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 toMario LopezatAccess Daily in October that she and her former co-star Combs have discussed the possibility of making a Charmedmovie as a “way to celebrate [their] fans.”
“I mean, Holly and I talk aboutCharmedmovies a lot, you know,” she said at the time. “Because they have the newCharmed, 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 varietyfor an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in October.
