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.
