The Doctor Who and Torchwood star has apparently begged producers of the TV phenomenon Glee, to cast him as one of Rachael Berryâ€™s (Lea Michele) Gay Dads.
Barrowman told Z-list celebrity chum bucket Heat magazine:
“I have no idea if I’ll be in it, I met with their casting people and I said I’d love to be in it – I’d be good as one of Rachel’s gay dads!”
Barrowman was last seen terrorising Wisteria Lane as Patrick Logan, Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) in Desperate Housewives and according to his agents will donning the WW1 chic again to play Captain Jack Harkness and filming the new internationally flavoured brand of Torchwood from January until June in 2011.
Glee, the global post modern musical which follows the fortunes of a high school show choir as they belt out old show stoppers and chart toppers is set to return on 21st September. The show has a massive following, if not an unanimously positive critical response (which can be summarised by how much umbrage you take with this statement by the New York Times: â€œBlissfully Unoriginal in a witty and imaginative wayâ€).
