John Barrowman Joins Arrow

According to Entertainment Weekly , Barrowman will have a recurring role as 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.” No name for the character has yet been revealed.

But will he be playing a hero or a villain? We quite like the idea of Barrowman as this show’s answer to Lex Luthor. What do you think?

Arrow , starring Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, begins airing in the States on 10 October.
