Getting Desperate!

| Filed under: TV News


Torchwood star John Barrowman is getting desperate - literally!

The openly gay 42-year-old hottie, who released a song last year, is trying hard to get some extra work.

In fact, Barrowman has revealed that he'll be meeting up with Desperate Housewives execs in Los Angeles soon to discuss a potential role.

Barrowman said during a recent radio interview that "I probably shouldn't say this but I've got a meeting with the execs of Desperate Housewives. Can you believe it, I'm going to be a Desperate Housewife!"

Let's hope he didn't just jinx it!

But adding this piece of yummy to the show will definitely bring some new eye candy.

What role do U think he should play?

    Carlos's Bitch.

    You're desperate too, Perez

  3. 3

    how about if he kills bloggers?

  4. 4

    He reminds me of Gibbs from NCIS for some reason.

  5. 5

    Who goes around telling everyone about a potential job before you get it? Lame.

  6. 6

    if this were a woman, or a straight guy, or an ugly guy, he'd be a desperate z-list loser
    but because he makes your little dick hard, he's not?

    i love, love, love, love, love torchwood. that place is my happy place. that two series long show was better than every series of dr. who combined. i love eve myles, i love john barrowman, i love the guy who played owen. i love how the show is sexy and mysterious and in CARDIFF

  11. 11

    id actually watch that show if he was in it! i love torchwood. his single looks like it might make the uk top ten its been in the itunes top ten for a few days anyway. i have his album! id marry him tomorrow even though hes gay lol

  12. 12

    Oh I love him! :D

  13. 13

    OMG NOOOOOOOO! He's way too good for that filth! Besides, BBC needs to make a show about time agents and get him and James Marsters to reprise their roles! We need more of the Face of Boe!!!

    Re: sweetfreedom – He's a big star in the UK — Stage, TV and film.

  15. 15

    I love him so much!!!!! I hope he causes drama with the gays on the street!!!

  16. 16

    I think he should be married to a woman and have an affair with one of the gay boys on the down low and just cause total chaos.

  17. 17

    He needs to play a homewrecker for Bob and Lee's relationship.

  18. 18

    he should go back to broadway

  19. 19

    He shouldp lay a one stop fuck fest, bisexual con man who attempts to sleep or seduce almost everybody on The Lane, and through modern 'mean-girl' trickery almost succeeds in bedding, Carlos, Carlos, Carlos, succeeds in threesome with the Gay Neighbors, gives Mr. Scavo a shoulder to cry on, and lips to press against, convinces Mr. Nerdy Cleptomaniac Dentist to pretend to be gay to torture Bree, Fucks Susan in a secret one nighter, where she can find something out about him that can free the other neighbors trapped in his web of deceit.

    Basically a Bisexual version of Edie's character but with some serious hell to raise.
    The new tornado hits Wisteria Lane. Yeah!

    Re: RONTEX – simple plot, but hell ot the yes i want some sexual drama on DH!

  21. 21

    Would love to see more Torchwood but will watch anything he is in even Desperate Housewives but please John do some more Dr Who appearances. He has also done a great documentary on BBC about whether people are born gay or it comes later in life.

  22. 22

    Re: Mandy Dandy – I was going to say the same thing. Him and Mark Harmon do look a like! He just look younger.

  23. 23


  24. 24

    I don't think he really needs extra work haha, he has been in some very successful movies and shows. H e might just be trying to get more exposure this side of the pond after the very receptive response of americans to the 3rd season of torchwood on bbc america.

  25. 25

    I just finished watching Torchwood: Children of the Earth, and I have to say he is so magnetic. He has chemistry with every single actor and actress who shares the screen with him. I heard him sing on the BBC, and he has a wonderful Broadway-type voice. Luv him!

  26. 26

    I haven't watched Desperate Housewives since that shitty Season 2. If they add John from Torchwood I think I'll actually tune in again to check it out.

  27. 27


  28. 28

    Love It, he's super cute!!

  29. 29

    Am I the only one who thinks he looks exactly like Tom Cruise when he laughs?

  30. 30

    He's excellent in Torchwood, never seen him in anything else. He shouldn't sing :)

  31. 31

    Dear god I can't say how much I love this man…since his first appearence on Dr. Who, to all of the Torchwood episodes…I have never seen an episode of DH but will watch if he is on it. And hey BBC….MORE TORCHWOOD PLEASE!!!!!

  32. 32

    He's wonderful! I love him on Torchwood and Dr. Who! And he has such a beautiful singing voice!

  33. 33

    he'll probably play that one red-haired lady's son's boyfriend. Lol.

  34. 34

    I hope so.

  35. 35

    Is Gale Harold still on DH? If John joins the show I would love to see the two of those boys go at it. YUM.

    Also Torchwood = LOVE.

  36. 36

    guy looks hot to me!

  37. 37

    i'd actually watch desperate housewives if he was in it. maybe he can be the new sexy gardner?

  38. 38

    i want him! he is such a hot man.

  39. 39

    Oh NO, now I will actually have to watch this show!! JB in Desperate Housewives would be brilliant!!

  40. 40

    I thought that was a picture of Norm MacDonald at first

  41. 41

    I love him, he's great. Making of me was amazing.

  42. 42

    Who the hell is this guy?

  43. 43

  44. 44

    Re: leftgirl – It's after your bedtime dear.

  45. 45

    he's not desperate, he's sexy

  46. 46

    i don't find him hot

  47. 47

    I am so excited for the new season to start now
    i love the captain jack hawtness

  48. 48

    I love how you claim to like Broadway musicals and call him desperate–he is a talented stage actor. And of course he released a song, he's a SINGER. He wants to branch out more into the film medium…so…why blast him as "desperate" and make fun of him?

  49. 49

    called her up yet ?

  50. 50

    Erm….not that hot.

  51. 51

    He has a lot of work in the UK. He's gonna be on Doctor Who again next year, and he's got his TV Show - It's All Right On The Night.
    As much as I love John, I don't get how you call David T a Z-List Loser, and not him, when David T's actually more famous than him . . . you're such a hyprocrite.

  52. DEET says – reply to this


    jesse metcalf's BF.

  53. 53

    Surely he isn't desperate - I live in the UK and he's like a bad smell you just can't get rid of. He presents shows and guest appears on everything.

  54. 54

    i love john barrowman!! Captain Jack Harkness. He'll shag anything with a postcode ;)

  55. 55

    Someone's personal chef

  56. 56

    My mom and I were discussing it and we think he'll probably play the gay guy's new lover since his partner left last season.
    I think he'll be perfect on the show!! It'll make him a household name finally in America! :D
    But he has released more then one song. His CD, 'Music Music Music' was his fifth studio album.
    Get your facts straight Perez

  57. 57

    Re: margar3t – Dude wouldn't it just be the greatest thing ever for JB to be on American Telly??
    I love Torchwood too and John Barrowman is just the best ever :D

  58. 58


  59. 59

    Love Torchwood. He's so hot! Why is he talking about a job he hasn't actually got yet?!!

  60. 60

    Ok for all UK people on here is it just me or does he look like Christian in Eastenders in this pic? lol

  61. 61

    Here's a reason for me to catch the show. The best talented actor to watch. Yes, I'm a big fan of Doctor Who and Torchwood. Will he use his Scottish accent thats the question.

  62. 62


    I will actually watch the show if he's there. He better be gay on the show, it'll make my life.
    Whether or not he's big in the States, he's HUGE in Britain. I love this man, he should be in everything.

  63. 63

    Re: The Mancunian Candidate – Omg!!! I LOVE your Skins icon!!!
    Skins is the BEST TV show ever!!!
    No American teen show can compare to SKINS!!!

    Anyway, John Barrowman is HUGE in the UK.
    He's not a Z-lister.

  64. 64

    Umm… Why is Perez asking what role we think John Barrowman should play? Shouldn't he play a new character? it seems as if Perez is asking the question for him to replace someone.

  65. 65

    I would love for him to be on Desperate Housewives. I think one of the gay neighbours should dump the other in favour if John! He is soooo yummy! But I also don't want him to get too well liked over there on the show. I would much rather see him as Captain Jack Harkness. Torchwood might be one of the best shows ever. If you haven't seen it. CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!!!!

  66. u9 says – reply to this


    Is he really that desperate? Hopefully he can get a better show.

    I really dislike the way Desperate Housewives is written. The women on the show seem like quasi-bitches, and the men seem like either emasculated eunuchs or evil villans.

  67. 67

    Wait- John Barrowman is gay? My gaydar was soooooooooooooooo off on this one. How embarrassing. And I always said he looks like a cross between Tom Cruise and (someone help me - James Marsden?). He's cute!
