Thanks to gehayi for this piece of goss... I know there are at least 2 people on my flist who will be jumping up and down about this!
"John Gets Bond Gig
"It's a long way from kids' telly to Tinseltown, but Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman, 39, looks set to make the journey. He may have started out on children's show Live and Kicking back in the 90s, but I can reveal that John is about to prove a hit in Hollywood, having bagged a job presenting on E! Entertainment and signing up to front its coverage of the forthcoming Bafta Awards.
"Even better, John's role as Captain Jack Harkness has brought him to the attention of the producers of the next James Bond movie. In fact, they want to cast the gay actor as a baddie who tries to seduce the famous spy, played by Daniel Craig. A mole tells me, "He is ideal and we have had dicussions about it. Daniel is up for it, too!" Watch this space...

Not inconsiderable squee.... I can't believe that I'm actually looking forward to a Bond Film.
There have got to be bad Bond jokes I could tell, but it's too early. I shall go away and think of a good Bond Villain name for John.....
