Is Torchwood set for Arrow?

August 16th, 2012 by Marc 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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
