She loves comic books, blue nail polish and Jonathan Taylor Thomas circa 1995. She frequents Twitter to dish about CW shows, and when she's not blogging, she reads too many YA and NA books. She's an Amazon Bestselling Author of the Addicted series, a New Adult Romance. Follow her on Twitter @Becca_Ritchie.

John Barrowman, a fan favorite from Torchwood and Doctor Who, will join the cast of CW’s Arrow in a recurring role. Entertainment Weekly first reported the news.

Little has been revealed about the actual character Barrowman will be playing, the producers hinted that he’s “well-dressed” and “as mysterious as he is wealthy.” By most of Barrowman’s bio pictures, the man always looks classy in style. Thankfully there is a bit more information to go on: “He is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.”

So cryptic. Put your sleuthing hats on, lovely readers! Is Barrowman possibly playing a character from the Green Arrow comics? Torchwood fans will probably want to tune in now, so catch the premiere of  Arrow on October 10!
