Barrowman Wants Capt Jack to Remain Omnisexual


Out actor John Barrowman talked to Entertainment Weekly about the possibility of an American version of his British show Torchwood, telling the magazine he hopes his character remains a lover of men, women, and sexy aliens.

The sci-fi show is being considered by Fox for a U.S. reboot, and according to Barrowman, Torchwood and Queer as Folk creator Russell T. Davies has made it clear Barrowman should continue in his role as randy Capt. Jack Harkness.

"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," Barrowman, who will soon appear on ABC's Desperate Housewives, told Entertainment Weekly.

Barrowman says he will push to keep his character from being changed into a hetero hero should the show become Americanized: "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."
