Michael Vartan is a Poker Pro


Michael Vartan arrives in Melbourne on Wednesday (January 7) to play in the Aussie Millions Poker Tournament in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The 40-year-old former Alias star reportedly plans to spend his three weeks in Melbourne playing poker at Crown and also attending the Australian Open tennis tournament.

Pamela Anderson is also rumored to be playing at the Aussie Millions Poker Tournament.

Vartan recently finished filming Demoted, alongside David Cross and Sean Astin, and the film is expected to be released later this year.

  • Realme2008

    He is looking really short these days for some reason? Anyone else think this. I mean, I know he’s like 5’11″ or 5’11.5″, but he’s looking short.

  • carol

    Nice to see pics of Vartan again! He’s looking pretty good these days! Reminds me how much I miss Vaughn & everyone else at Alias!

  • lene


  • Wyatt

    He is looking GREAT! Thanks for the pictures. I miss seeing him regularly and am really looking forward to “Demoted”!

  • Traci

    Damn! He is hot!

  • rhoniluv

    Don’tcha mean “PORKER PRO”?!!!

    What the hell happened to him?! You’d think he’d just popped out a kid instead of Jen.

  • Alison

    Yay! I wish he would come and visit us in Sydney while he is here in Aus. He is such a hottie!

  • vmars111

    Oh my! His face looks like it gained a couple!

  • Kayla

    He looks fantastic! I wish we saw more of him.

  • bbop

    Yum! Best grin ever. If he has bulked up it looks it looks great on him.

  • TJ

    Ha, I’ve been to that Casino…

  • kaila

    LOVE HIM! Alias was an awesome show!

  • cici

    Looks so much better with a few extra pounds.

  • HM

    wow. I’ve missed him. wow.

  • Mary

    If you call that a porker (and it’s obvious he’s tucking his chin in, probably as he lifts a bag in the top right pic), then you need to get your vision checked.

    Michael looks great!

  • Jessica

    This is one beautiful man- on the inside and out.

  • Adoring Fan

    He looks good with that extra weight. The close-up pic not so good. Baby needs to get some rest.

  • rory

    You’d need some rest too after a sixteen hour plane ride. He looks wonderful.

  • b

    oh i’ll have to look out for him!!! lol

  • grace

    That is one gorgeous man – beautiful inside and out. He looks great! He could give lessons in how to truly be a low-profile, low-key celebrity.

  • kc

    I’ve always felt a bit sorry for him. Ever since Jennifer Garner dumped him, his career went downhill. Being kicked off of Alias must have been so humiliating. I think she was the love of his life, alas, he wasn’t the love of hers. It’s still nice to see him, though.

  • holla

    I agree with #34…i just don’t know why she’d ever let him go…beautiful man inside and out =D

  • amy

    I also agree with #34. I think he really loved her, but she was always attracted to Affleck after Pearl Harbor. I wish him well. And I just saw him on Bonnie Hunt and he looked thin. He’s wearing sweats here, people.

  • Yuliana

    Michael is so amazing… One sight, and you’re chamed by him.

  • Raney

    The male ho of hollywood is in Melbourne again for some action, poker and lots of women that’s typical Vartan.

    Where’s your fcuk buddy Nicky Whelan Michael? When David dumps her her again she’ll be with you again.. until the next guy. No doubt you’ll find plenty of women willing to keep you company in Melbourne.

  • Angela

    This is one beautiful man *sigh*

  • raney

    He already lost at the poker tournament which means he can spend the next two weeks, getting drunk with his buddy Fervola and whoring with all the women throwing themselves at them.

  • aardvark

    #40 – Spoken like someone who wouldn’t get a second look from anyone! What a self-righteous, judgemental person you are!

  • Kendra

    For a guy who’s 40, he is GORGEOUS!! So nice to see him again, it’s been way too long. Health and happiness to him!!!

  • raney

    It’s the truth. I wouldn’t want a second look from fevola or vartan. You couldn’t pay me enough money to get near those two drunken sleazebags. Fevola can teach Vartan how to get drunk, pee in public and throw a fake penis at a woman, like I said sleazebag.

  • curious

    raney, please tell us more about MV.

  • Fess up

    Raney, are you a woman Vartan turned down or a guy who couldn’t get his woman to stop hitting on him? Go ahead and fess up- we won’t laugh at you.

    And the Aussie Millions is a SERIES of poker tournaments, ending with the Main Event (with the biggest buy-in and the largest field), which hasn’t started yet. He’s out of the first event, and honestly, he probably wanted to be, so he could enjoy Australia.

  • Maria

    Raney, Michael is a person who has never been involved in any scandal, and as an adult who is, He can sleep with whom he wants, because he doesn’t damage to anybody.

    Do not understand why so much criticism when he has never said anything bad about anyone.

  • tiptop

    Raney such venom why? Michael Vartan has never said a bad word about anyone and as for sleeping around, where is all the press coverage? I have never read anything of the sort. Everything that I have read about him (including meetings that fans have had with him) and heard and watched him in interviews suggests to me that he is a very down to earth, level headed person with a very quick wit and he is the most strikingly handsome man I have seen in Hollywood so far. Because of his personality more than his looks I am a big fan of his. I cannot wait to see him in the movies Jolene, Demoted and High School and many more to come. I saw him in Rogue and loved it. Rogue should have had a much wider release especially as all the people who follow horror movies and understand the genre gave it wonderful reviews. Here’s to receiving much much much more of Michael Vartan news and photos (sorry Michael I know you prefer to remain out of the public eye but I need to see you out and about!!!)

  • Kendra

    Amen to that! A real gentleman, and one who exudes class. I wish I was older if this is what 40 looks like these days!
