Is Torchwood set for Arrow?

August 16th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

This one is sure to get Doctor Who and Torchwood fans in a tizzy. is reporting that John Barrowman, the man behind the ageless Torchwood agent Jack Harkness, is set to fill a recurring role on CW’s upcoming Arrow.

While producers on the show are being tight lipped about the particulars of his role they did say that he’ll be playing a “well dressed man” adding he will be “as mysterious as he is wealthy…he is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City”.

Hmm, I am intrigued. I guess we may have to wait until the show’s October 10 premiere. Any theories on who this character might be?
