No, no, it’s not what you think! While no one would be surprised to hear of Captain Jack involved in a salacious saga, John Barrowman is just guest-starring in the hit ABC drama, Scandal.
Creator/Showrunner Shonda Rhimes tweeted yesterday: John Barrowman is here working at @scandalabc today.Life is good. #torchwood #captainjack #iamanerd
This marks the second time Rhimes has hired the crazy popular John: he starred in her 2012 pilot Gilded Lily which did not get picked up. That of course left him free for his current recurring role as baddie Malcolm Merlyn on CW’s Who-alumni-friendly Arrow.
Details on Barrowman’s scandalous role are not available, however the current airdate is May 9.
Scandal airs Thursdays at 10pm on ABC.
