Captain Jack is about to meet face to face with Olivia Pope.
Shonda Rhimes’ ABC hit Scandal has nabbed Torchwood and Doctor Who actor John Barrowman for a season 2 guest appearance, as was announced by Rhimes on her Twitter account last night. "John Barrowman is here working at Scandal today. Life is good. #torchwood #captainjack #iamanerd," Rhimes tweeted.
Nothing has been revealed so far about the role Barrowman has been cast in, but sources have confirmed that he will be appearing on the second-last episode of the season on May 9th. Barrowman is known well for his acting chops in the British science fiction world. Barrowman played the role of time-travelling Captain Jack Harness on Doctor Who and its spin-off Torchwood. Barrowman currently has a recurring role on The CW’s Arrow, and Rhimes has a history with the actor outside of her self-proclaimed nerdy love for him. Barrowman had a role in Rhimes failed pilot Gilded Lilys last season.
Barrowman is the latest in a long list of stars making appearances on season two of the ABC drama, including Lisa Edelstein, Kurt Fuller, Eric Mabius, Sam Page, Brenda Song, Sam Anderson, Tom Amandes and Fringe's Jasika Nicole.
