At the Torchwood panel at the San Diego Comic Con this weekend (let’s face it: we’ll be talking about it all week) a fan asked John Barrowman a boring question: what other roles he’d like to play. This is what Captain Jack Harkness had to say:
“You know what I want to play? Captain America,” said Barrowman adding that obtaining the role “so won’t happen.” Another con-goer disagreed, telling Barrowman, “I think you’re the only one who could play Captain America.”
Hey anything is better than Will Smith, but I actually think this would be interesting casting. Though, I think we’ll end up seeing an unknown, especially when you take the Avengers movie into consideration, and Barrowman is a relative-unknown but he’s also kind of a clown–which I like. When I think about Cap, I see someone not light hearted, but kind of a hard ass with a personality that is tough to relate to, clearly.
