John Barrowman Wants To Be "Captain America!"

John Barrowman Wants To Be "Captain America!"

"Torchwood"'s Captain Jack Harkness revealed at Comic Con that he would very much like to play a different Captain in an upcoming Marvel movie..

At the Comic-Con panel for the third season of Dr Who spin off, "Torchwood" Barrowman expressed his desire to play the first Avenger himself!

MTV is reporting that the onscreen Captain Jack told the audience that he'd like to play another popular Captain -- namely, Steve Rogers.

"You know what I want to play? Captain America," Barrowman proclaimed to the wildly receptive crowd, before adding that it "so won't happen."

Still, Barrowman's appeal has at least one supporter. An audience member later went to the microphone to tell the actor, "I think you're the only one who could play Captain America."

God loves a chancer! Barrowman certainly has the looks and build for Cap, and he's a solid actor. I'm not a big fan of Torchwood. However, he has gained a legion of fans with both that, and appearing in Dr Who previously.

Look at it this way, I'v heard worse suggestions!(Ahem Jason Lewis)

@TheAnswer ..yeah thats true, he is a little effeminate. But that may just be because Harkness is gay..or at least, bisexual. I have never seen him in anything other than Torchwood so im not sure how well he tones down the gay or not!

Urgh... can i be cap??? Let's aaaalllll get in [frick]ing line, shall we???
Hawksblueyes - 7/29/2009, 10:18 AM
Dont think it matters, he was probably just relaying his willingness to play Cap. Just like every other 20 to 30 year old actor in the industry.
future0fcomixs - 7/29/2009, 10:19 AM
WHAT!? NO! I do NOT approve!!!
BmanHall - 7/29/2009, 10:25 AM

HTML language...

Seriously I hope no one in their right mind at Marvel even considers him for the role...hes the gayest, campest [frick]er on tv in the UK and I don't think he can act for shit, infact no one from his shit show can and no one cept David Tennant is good in DR WHO either.
CorndogBurglar - 7/29/2009, 11:26 AM
casper van deen for cap...okay sorry, it was a joke...
loganoneil - 7/29/2009, 11:27 AM
I could totally see Barrowman as Cap! 'Tone down the gay'? If you're referring to his character in 'Torchwood', he's described as a brash omni-sexual from the 51st century. Aside from the make-out scenes wtih Ianto and Captain John, he's played the character pretty butch.

Aesir - that is your opinion. You are OBVIOUSLY not a fan and have probablly never given 'Torchwood' or 'Doctor Who' a proper chance (just watch 'Children of Earth'). My opinion is that he and both shows are BRILLIANT. He'd be an excellent candidate for the Cap!
Shaman - 7/29/2009, 11:42 AM
If Jensen can't, he can :P At the very least he hasn't been naked in aero & vodka adds.
Hawksblueyes - 7/29/2009, 11:50 AM
OK, I allways considered myself somewhat "hip" so on the chance of appearing not so "hip". what exactly does omni sexual mean??
JoshWilding - 7/29/2009, 12:05 PM
He's ok in Torchwood but now way i hell do i want a camp Captain America!!! Hell, if i wanted that id be like LEEE777 and want Jason Lewis to play Cap! ;)


Oh and guys, head over to Fan Fic and check out my FULL Captain America movie fan cast! :)
PRMR77 - 7/29/2009, 12:06 PM

soccerjoshc - 7/29/2009, 12:10 PM

Do we really want this happening?
Shaman - 7/29/2009, 12:21 PM
Sirprize- Jokes aside... HE'S [frick]ING PERFECT FOR CAPTAIN PLANET!!! Holy shit!!! :))
superdog - 7/29/2009, 12:26 PM
ror@ here you go, the trifecta !!!!!

Shaman - 7/29/2009, 12:35 PM
Nice juggs SupDawg but you missed out on the ratio. It's two boob pics for one gay cap pic. So your three boob pics short!!! GIT-R-DONE!!!

SoulAllFlush - 7/29/2009, 12:50 PM
I'm for it

Barrowman is actor enough to pretend he is straight for 90 minutes
Shaman - 7/29/2009, 12:53 PM
There pretty much all actor enough to pretend not being gay for 90 minutes straight... oh wait, apparently not Jason Lewis LOL :P
BillyBlack - 7/29/2009, 12:58 PM
What if the movie is 2 hours long?!?!

I'd hate to see Cap "Faggin Out" in the last half hour of the movie. ^_^ He might be too gay to freeze in the ice. He could burst into flames and melt straight thru!
