Captain Jack Harkness Becomes Real Life Crime Fighter

image

Captain Jack: Immortal. Lover. Crime fighter. He's like a sexier version of Batman.

John Barrowman is already regarded by many to be one of the sexiest (if not the sexiest) actors to appear in the Doctor Who universe. Not me, of course. I'm a bow tie man. However, Barrowman just became even more swoon-worthy, since he's now a crime fighter with a heart of gold.

Barrowman was in Newcastle, attending a concert with his parents. When he returned to the hotel in Glasgow where he was staying, he suddenly stumbled across a scuffle involving hotel staff and some thieves. It turns out that a woman and her husband had been woken up by two boys ransacking their room, and one of the kids punched a staff member during the ensuing escape attempt.

Barrowman, however, caught one of the teens and managed to detain him:

"I grabbed the kid's ankles, yanked him to the ground and then pulled him out into the hallway. I pinned him down. My tour manager then arrived and the three of us held him down until the police came."

That's not where the story ends. Barrowman, who was saddened to see a kid who is only 14 or so and "on drugs" said he'd like to help him out and possibly give him a job.

Barrowman's been pretty adamant about how he's hoping to be a part of the 50th anniversay celebration for Doctor Who. If he keeps on acting like a real life superhero, I don't foresee him having much trouble getting fan support.

*shakes fist* BARROWMAN!

Oh, wait, this is a good thing.

i'm not much of a doctor who fan, but wow..

like a boss.

good for him.

And I just watched a play about William Gillette solving a murder mystery. Wow.

Wait, fifty years have passed already?!

Completely missing the point.

*swoon*

I think I need to start writing John Barrowman slashfiction immediately. Where he and I go on wild adventures. In space. With a chimp. Named Nathan.

That is so awesome.

Wow... very much impressed by this.

CkretAznMan:

Completely missing the point.

Started in what, 63? Add fifty years and we're getting to 2013. So pretty close.

Awesome on TV and real life? He is possibly one of the coolest humans ever.

BARROWMAN!!!
You need to stop sleeping with every perp you bring in. It reflects badly on the force!
Good thing he's Immortal and doesn't age, that way he'll never be two days to retirement.

Barrowman wins at the world.

Yeah, he's cute, but he still can't compare to the hotness that is David Tennant.

Gorgeous, heroic, gay, kind, funny....
and married,
sigh.

Will the man never cease to amaze?

Wait, he'll give him a job? I need a job. So if I punch some hoyel employees, while on drugs in the presence of John Barrowman, he'll give me a job? ;)

Seriously though, I love that man.

a smile from ears to ears appeared on my face, then i just thought about and said to myself "yeah, doctor who still doing good. Even in real life."

Drake, I presume?

Also, well done Barrowman.
Now we just need Jack back with Midshipman Alonso, Tennant and preferably Simms too.
Those were the days.

Aethren:

As a completely straight male, I can attest to this fact.

Still, in a certain light, Barrowman can be said to have a particular charm about him...

I think I need to watch some Torchwood.

I thought I would be getting something more related to the following Captain Jack when I clicked. But I admit my Doctor Who knowledge are a bit low, since about only thing we get from English TV where I live use to be some dubbed documentary from BBC. (And my knowledge of what going on on TV is a bit low considering my TV hasn't been turned on in like 3 years now =p)

Aethren:

Quoted for divine truth. Though I can't decide who's sexier, Tennant or Fillion...

Oh my Barrowman, you make my heart swoon, then you steal it away like some immortal space batman. You will always have my support as I was always more a Ninth to Tenth Doctor man. I would love the Eleventh more, but the companions he keeps since I last saw him blah me to much.

As a completely straight male in a long-term relationship, and father to a 2 year old, I second (third?) this statement. Tennant = teh hotness. Still, Barrowman is roguishly charming. Plus, mofo can sing.

Well, except Barrowman was never The Doctor...

Tennant beats Barrowman any day in a hotness challenge.

Yay for TV actors from my favourite TV show being awesome!

I love the guy!
And here I was thinking the only problem with Jack Harkness was that the actor looked a little too clean and frail for the character sturdy personality, I'd never picture Barrowman as a thief jumping heat-of-the-moment-type crimefighter.

Barrowman you can try, but you'll never be as good as Commander Sheppard. And that's the bottom line. :)

so barrowman is now officially the coolest guy in history next to will smith... he is sexy to every species in the universe, immortal, travelled with a time lord, has a revolver and kicks ass then gives them a job because he feels sorry for them! kudos to you good sir

As was stated on Torchwood- "It's the jawline. Once perceived, always yearned for."

You forgot singer! Only the Dark Knight wouldn't make fanfiction songs about himself so I guess that makes him even better than Batman.

That song is so awesome...

No no no no, ALONSO is the name you want to go with.

What the hell, the kid is going to get a JOB? Be right back guys, just going to go rob Barrowman's house.

This is not something any mere man can decide. We'll have to leave it up to the gods...

To be fair, the guy he stopped was, you know, 14. Not exactly a giant by any standards :P

That said, I approve of the man

I doubt even they could decide.

a 14 year old doing drugs, it sad that i not suprised by that.

Nice work Barrowman. I wish I'd gone to see him in Newcastle last week even more now.
