Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAnglophilia


Not cool, BBC!

The highly-popular UK series Torchwood featured a sex scene involving bisexual alien-hunter, played by gay actor John Barrowman, and a male bartender that was ultimately cut by the British channel.

Ironically, the scene remained intact on the U.S. airing of the show.

Everyone Wants To Be On Glee!

Filed under: TV NewsGlee


And that includes John Barrowman!

The Scottish-born actor has said he would love to play one of character Rachel Berry's dads on Glee!

"I have no idea if I'll be in it," John says. "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."

Creator Ryan Murphy has thought about keeping Rachel's dads off-camera for the series, but we think he should consider John!

Plus he's so easy on the eyes!

Torchwood Actor Certain Bisexual Character Will Remain In US Version!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAnglophilia


We hope this turns out to be true!!

We reported earlier this year that FOX was looking to re-make the popular UK sci-fi series Torchwood for American audiences, and almost immediately people began to speculate whether or not the network would change one of the main character's sexual preference!!

Openly gay Scottish actor John Barrowman portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in the UK version, and has admitted he would LOVE to bring the character to American audiences, but only if the character continues hooking up with dudes!!

Barrowman says:

"Julie has said, as has Russell, that there will be no Torchwood without John Barrowman as Capt. Jack… If I am asked to do Torchwood again, I will do it at the drop of a hat - whether it's in America or back in Britain or if it's for a film. I absolutely love Capt. Jack. The last thing I would want would be for Jack to become this heterosexual, straight hero. He's an omnisexual guy. He likes men, women, aliens, whatever. I think we should continue going down that route."

We sincerely hope that US producers honor the integrity of the original and agree to those terms! Do we really need ANOTHER womanizing, super hetero scoundrel type??

We'll keep our fingers crossed.

What do U think?? Would U watch an 'omnisexual' male sci-fi character??

Drea De Matteo Leaving Desperate Housewives

Filed under: TV News


Does anyone even watch that show anymore?!

According to creator Marc Cherry, Drea de Matteo will be leaving Desperate Housewives in May.

But it's not a huge surprise!

"Part of the deal when we hired Drea was she was only interested in doing one season," said Cherry. "She has a baby and is eager to get back to her life in New York."

Drea's character, Angie and her family have been extremely mysterious on Wisteria Lane. Recent episodes have suggested that they are on the run and must change their names.

It's been said that the introduction of John Barrowman's character (aka the new villain) will be the one to end Angie.

Cherry promised that there will "an explosive finale" where "all the mysterious parts of her past will be revealed".

Bring it!

Got Room For One More, Glee?

Filed under: AnglophiliaGlee


It doesn't sound like there are too many celebs that the hit show Glee is turning away for guest roles, so maybe he has a shot.

Torchwood star John Barrowman wants in at McKinley High and while he is in town to shoot a guest-spot on Desperate Housewives, he is also taking a meeting with Glee producers to see what they can do for him. When asked about the show, John said:

"I absolutely love the show. What would I play in it? I'm not sure what kind of character I'd like to play. Maybe I could be a teacher, you know, another teacher who comes in and helps out. That's me just kind of brainstorming, but the fact that they want to have a meeting with me is really quite nice in itself. It's so exciting!"

Sure is! We're jealous!
