More recently he was in Dominion : Prequel to the Exorcist –
even with a poorer script he was able to rise above the film and give
a good account as Major Granville. If you’re going to watch
this movie for heavens sake go for Schraders version.
Note should also be made of his performance in Richard E Grants 'Wah
Wah' (2005) a massively understated film in which he plays Charles
Bingham. Also in 2005 he was 'Lord Carnarvon' in the TV series 'Egypt'.
Most recently he has just finished a film called Outpost (2008), here
Julian plays a rather mysterious British scientist leading a weary
team of mercenaries are on a mission in war-torn Eastern Europe to
uncover an abandoned WW2 underground bunker. His character seems to
believe there's something of great importance within. They learn that
it was used by Germans, who were performing unusual and theoretic
experiments on their own soldiers. However its dark secret is soon
revealed and the soldiers struggle to survive against something unimaginable.
