Has Torchwood star John Barrowman lost the plot? Has the prospect of international TV stardom in Torchwood Series 4 gone to his head?
What else is the explanation to his bizarre statement, in response to a question as to who should play him in a movie of his life.
“I would like to think Jake Gyllenhaal would be a good choice. It’s too obvious to say Tom Cruise because people say we look alike.”
To say this is diva-like behaviour is putting it mildly. Naturally as a presenter, actor, singer and dancer, John Barrowman is prone to moments of great self-obsession.
But who in their right minds would watch a movie about John Barrowman’s life, nevermind make one?
Barrowman has also revealed that he would like to play a sibling of Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise in a movie together.
“I’d love to play Tom Cruise’s brother in a movie. His younger brother, obviously!”
As things stand, Barrowman’s head hasn’t yet exploded, so you can still catch him in Tonight’s The Night on Saturday evenings, while Torchwood Series 4 is expected to enter production shortly.
