Guess who's coming to Wisteria Lane...?
John Barrowman will be appearing on Desperate Housewives. Captain Jack Harkness will be playing a villain, stirring up trouble for the ladies of the neighborhood.
Barrowman is expected to leave England in March to come to Los Angeles to begin filming. He'll appear on screen in April, and he's there for a mini-arc, at least five episodes. And he will be playing a malevolent man, i.e. a villain.
It has been reported that he's going to be involved with Angie's story. How will he impact on the Bolens, who are already brimming with angst and drama? Doesn't sound like it will be a positive impact.
Desperate Housewives' creator Marc Cherry had been anxious to get John Barrowman into the Wisteria Lane fold. It was just a matter of scheduling and writing.
The scheduling was for John, who's extremely busy in England with his TV and theater work -- including successful CDs of Broadway and theater show tunes, plus two memoirs he's published with his sister, and then all the TV appearances. All Cherry had to do was create a new character for him!
