NEWS: John Barrowman Joins CW's Arrow

The CW's upcoming superhero show Arrow has added a new member to its cast, in the form of John Barrowman.

Once described as the ''Happy Shopper* Tom Cruise,'' Barrowman is probably best known to sci-fi fans for his recurring role as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and subsequent spin-off, Torchwood. Now he's adding another genre TV role to his Resume with a new role in Arrow.

According to Entertainment Weekly (via SFX), Barrowman will play an as-yet-unnamed mystery man, ''an acquantance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.'' SFX speculates that he could be ''the show's answer to Lex Luthor,'' but we'll hopefully know more when Arrow premieres in October.

* Happy Shopper is a UK-based convenience store known for its off-brand (i.e. cheap) products.


  1. Maybe he will play "The Shade" or something cool like that.
