Michael Vartan is Poker Faced

Avid poker player Michael Vartan arrives at Tullamarine Airport on Thursday in Melbourne, Australia.

While waiting for his ground transportation, the 39-year-old former Alias star puffed away on a cancer stick. Vartan is in town to play in the 2008 Aussie Millions Poker Championships, which kicks off at Melbourne’s Crown Casino on Saturday.

Just last month, ABC pulled Big Shots from the schedule but is expected to burn off the remaining episodes starting Thursday, Jan. 10.

    Wow, guess he went back to cigarettes after Jennifer Garner broke his heart. Now that Big Shots is cancelled, I think he needs to join Grey’s Anatomy.

  • musicisourhigh

    Like him as an actor. Hated that Big Shots show

  • garner sucks

    i like him a lot. nice to see him out. very true that jen Garner isn’t as sweet as everyone thinks she is. she broke this man’s heart and never looked back.

  • Alison

    Love me some Mikey!

    I hated JG too for what she did…

  • me

    Seems like The only thing this guy is famous for is briefly dating Jennifer Garner 5 years ago then never dating another person or doing anything of merit besides Alias. What a loser. She was lucky to dump his a**.

  • Lola

    Very cute :)

  • Alias fan

    SO happy to see him on here! Thanks!

  • CherieB

    Love him!

  • the_original_nika

    oh love him. god the man has been M.I.A

  • NOT SO

    Great to see Michael, he is certainly the best looking actor I have seen on the screen. I wish him good luck in the poker tournament. And to Me I am not sure why you posted those comments. As to the first Michael is a very private person so we wont read who he is going out with until he is ready (by the way I was truely horrified to find that he was going out with his co-star that Jennifer Gardner girl, but then I guess its understandable, if someone throws themselves at you long enough you will eventually take the bait and then find out the truth about the person later). As to the second he has been in two movies Rogue and Jolene and has shot Big Shots so he is happily working. Quite an achiever in Hollywood if you ask me.

    VAUGHN! Damn i miss Alias.

    He is so HOT! :D

  • Violets Auntie

    Vartan and Garner still remain friends. He got over Garner and moved on, why can’t you?

  • cissa

    Awww, I love this man! He’s hot!!!
    I miss alias!!

  • Didi

    why what did Garner do to him? did she fucking Affleck why she was with him? what a slag

  • nw

    I didn’t hear Big Shots was cancelled. Is that confirmed?

  • elise

    I love him. He is so cute and funny ! I think that we don’t see him enough often :( …

  • carrye

    Sorry, but what happened between Michael and Jen???

  • hudgensboy
  • Astrid

    He has zero appeal now. He’s totally fallen off since “Alias.”

  • kelly

    I love Michael Vartan AND Jennifer Garner…loved them when they were on Alias…loved them as a couple. I hated it didn’t work out, but he seems over it…why can’t everyone else get over it? Why do some people take what celebs do so personally? They dated for 14 months, and now they are friends.

  • Linuxgirl

    I’m a fan. I just saw him in “Rogue” (loved it) and he has plenty of appeal. I think he’s fab.

  • aliasrocks

    Why did Jennifer break his heart???

  • Cynthia


  • Kiki

    He’s SO handsome!
    I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!

  • Wyatt

    nw, I saw an article Monday where Titus said the show hasn’t been cancelled. There are 3 new episodes this month, January 10th, 17th and 24th. I really like the show and it’s refreshing to see stories from the male point of view. With ABC’s track record for mistreating good shows, it’s anyone’s guess on the status once those episodes air.

    Thanks for posting those awesome pics of Vartan! He’s one beautiful man!!

  • mizanguiano

    I had the pleasure of working with MV and I will state that he is not only gorgeous but incredibly considerate and kind. I wish him all the best. He is incredibly talented and will have much success in this industry.
