FIRST LOOK

First look at ''Fantastic Four'' villain -- ''Nip/Tuck'''s Julian McMahon takes on the role of Dr. Doom in the upcoming superhero movie

Though he claims he ''would've been a limo driver on this movie,'' Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck's scurrilous Christian Troy) was probably happier to end up as villainous Victor Von Doom in the Marvel Comics adaptation The Fantastic Four, now filming in Vancouver for a July 2005 release. Dr. Doom — here a captain of industry — is the FF's once-handsome archnemesis, scarred by his dabblings in dark arts. (In the movie, he's disfigured by the cosmic storm that mutates the FF.) He wears an iron mask to cover his hideousness. ''I didn't think they'd hire me as Dr. Doom because I didn't think I had the evil look as much, you know?'' Clearly, he doesn't watch Nip/Tuck.
