John Barrowman, of Doctor Who and Torchwood fame, has joined the cast of CW's new Arrow TV series.

The role is described by EW as a recurring one with Barrowman's character said to be a "well-dressed man” who is “as mysterious as he is wealthy -- he is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.”

EW notes it could possibly be Philanthropist Stanley Dover Sr. from the Green Arrow comic books.

John Barrowman is known from Doctor Who and Torchwood as Captain Jack Harkness, a popular and fan-favorite character.

Arrow premiers Wednesday October 10th at 8pm ET on the CW.
