Will Barrowman Be Disappointed for the 50th?

When John Barrowman quashed rumours that scheduling conflicts would leave any potential appearance in the fiftieth anniversary celebrations out of the question, he wasn’t kidding.

John Barrowman, Captain Jack Harkness himself.

In fact, he had already sought permission from the producers of the hit CW show Arrow to take a leave of absence should the call finally come in.

Speaking to The Sun’s TV Biz, Barrowman who has been the most vocal and unguarded of all the potential returnees, confirmed that his current role as Malcolm Merlyn aka The Well-Dressed Man aka (and a potential spoiler alert) the Green Arrows arch nemesis The Dark Archer, wouldn’t prevent him from donning the military jacket of Captain Jack once again:

Andrew Kreisberg (creator of Arrow) has already said if they want me in the 50th anniversary, he will give me the time off to do it. But it’s not up to me… I haven’t been asked. I would love to if they ask me.

Barrowman also went on to say that he’d be ‘disappointed’ if he wasn’t asked to take part.

Would you too be disappointed if John Barrowman wasn’t invited to the party?
