Anthony "Tony" Curran (born 13 December 1969) is a Scottish actor.
Some of his roles have included Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man), an original character in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. To portray the Invisible Man, he donned a special suit that turned him into a walking bluescreen (according to his commentary on the DVD, he looked like a "smurf on acid"). Curran also played vampire roles in Guillermo del Toro's Blade II and Underworld: Evolution.
In 2006 Curran appeared in the unrated film Red Road. He performed non-simulated sex acts on camera for the film, an uncommon choice for actors.
Curran is active in participating in marathons to raise money for charity. He is a frequent and popular participant in the annual Dressed To Kilt event in New York City, run by the organisation Friends of Scotland in celebration of Tartan Week. He is also a keen fan of Celtic Football Club.
Curran voiced the character of Captain MacMillan in the 2011 video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Curran left Ultimate Force in 2005 after his character was killed off at the beginning of season 3. Ross Kemp, who played the lead character of Staff Sergeant Henno Garvie in the show, said "I hate the fact that most of the original cast were killed off the show, people I'd worked with for years making this, but we must move on."
Curran currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Mai Nguyen, whom he met in Hollywood.
