While I think he''s not exactly the greatest actor of all time but I think he has a charming personality. He should do a version of a Late or Evening Show where he interviews celebrities, does a funny opening monologue, a few skits and occasionally sings duets with his guests.
I wish that CBS would put out "Central Park West" on DVD. Everyone who was involved with the show could do commentaries for it including John Barrowman.
Who is she and why should I know this gal?
And of course singing with the out and talented Daniel Boys...
He should replace Mary Hart. I bet the wigs would fit.
Beautiful uncut cock. You just want to eat it!
A real beauty in drag in LA CAGE AUX FOLLES.
He''s a talentless fame whore OP. Always hated him.
He''s a good singer. I''m not used to hearing guys sing love songs specifically about other guys. I''m sure I''ll get over it. I liked it.
I guess he''s ok if you like British people.
Great video, thanks for posting it. His vice was much better than I had expected...
He''s thoroughly obnoxious whenever he appears on British TV. Which is quite a lot. A mediocrity amply rewarded for providing sexual favors to BBC execs for the past 25 years.
Love him, great singer
[quote]I guess he''s ok if you like British people.\
If you want to be technical, he was born in Scotland but left at 8 years old and raised in the United States.
Hey, that song is from CHESS!\
His music is damn cheesy (check out his version of One Night Only - he sang it on GMTV, should be on YT), but I actually like his version of I Know Him So Well.\
I think he''d be a terrible Talk Show Host. He''s far too interested in himself.
[quote]He''s far too interested in himself.\
Yeah, shocking, I mean he''s a gay man.
Graham Norton gets the best out of his guests.
Was that really him in the hot dog bun?
No, it really wasn''t him in "the hot dog bun." It was really him in the hamburger bun.
Can anyone post the famous "Hamburger Bun"?%0D\
The bun no longer exists R21. It was eaten by Barrowman''s boyfriend at the time.
i''ve always found him the hot one, but BOY-o BOY was that song a suckass song.
I don''t know, it''s musical theatre, he is a camp gay man, why would this stand out. The day a hot, straight acting indie signer sings a love song to another man is the day I''d sit up and take notice.
He sings I Know Him So Well in concert and on one of his pop albums (which charted high). He''s not singing it in a musical theatre context. And since when have camp gay men sung love songs to other men in a pop music context?
Oh, and indie band Grizzly Bear, with gay lead singer Ed Droste(I don''t know if he''s straight-acting, sorry), have been performing He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss) for a while now.
Scott is hotter IMO.
I wonder if Scott in drag is as pretty as John?
His husband Scott is waaaaay cuter. And smarter. John is a big show-off pants.
I see why R24''s unimpressed. Just because several years ago it would be unheard of for two out musical actors to sing a love song together is no reason to feel proud or happy. The fact that the audience loves it and the comments on youtube are mostly very supportive are no reason to think we''ve come a long way.\
Oh, wait, that''s all horseshit. It''s amazing and inspiring. \
To quote my favorite youtube comment: "That two men can sing this to a crowd roaring its approval is such a wonderful thing. It''s been a long time coming, I am glad I lived to see it."\
So am I. R24, if you''re not satisfied, neither am I; I want to see out gay people in every area of entertainment and every other industry go public and be applauded for it (or just accepted, really). But if you''re not impressed, you''re going out of your way to shit on progress, which is kind of lame.
I love John Barrowman. He is so handsome and has a great personality. He is just so over the top gay it''s funny. He cannot be like that in real life...
I like John Barrowman, I really do.%0D\
But I''ll never understand the mindset in the gay community that every single one of us has to LOVE someone just because they are gay (and out) as well. We''re not sheeps, we are allowed our own opinions. %0D
Yes, he sings in tune and has a good amount of singing power but his voice is a hollow shell. Completely unmoving or dramatic. Not an ounce of warmth.
Well, I was totally in their corner until I read the interview. They have a "sexy" Taylor Lautner standee in their home...and Scott wants to "mentor" troubled teens?? Yuck. No sense of appropriateness at all.
I think he''s great. If I had one beef with him it''s that he knows he''s great as well.
And for the record, the hamburger picture is not him. His friends told him about it, he saw and said, nope, not him. He said if it was, he would have said so since it''s nothing to be ashamed about but alas it wasn''t him.
needs an eye job but not too much.
They were going to adopt a child but Scott is really not into it and John LOVES kids and is from a big family. That must be an issue for them.\
Scott seems kind of like a cold fish next to John who is so gregarious and charming.
John should just be grateful he has Scott. John is not easy to put up with and Scott is better-looking than he is.
Are we to assume John is \
a big-dicked bottom?
Well, that was short.
Cheesy synthetic pop music is cheesy no matter who sings it.
John is annoying... his husband is better looking and has a great personality.%0D\
I wonder who is the top and bottom in their relationship...
What a bunch of bitches....he''s a great performer, handsome and successful...good for him\
Very out which we need and most are afraid to do in his position...\
Artistically, whatever...he is an entertainer not a major talent...great personality on stage...\
I love him...
I wonder if straight people are as catty when it comes to straigtht performers on anonymous message boards?
I''d say his looks trumped his hammy talents, but even his looks have faded, as looks do. %0D\
For all that, he seems rather inoffensive in the spectrum of things, and I never got all of the condemnation in old DL threads about his supposed whoring around. If he did, so what? He''s one of the few gay actors/entertainers whose sexuality isn''t completely subjugated to camp buffonery, or sanitized beyond imagination.
Here he is spanking Adam Garcia''s bare ass at the "West End Bares" event.\
There''s also other vids with out actor/performers John Partridge and Paul O''Grady.
I like Barrowman A LOT! Every time I''ve seen him in an interview situation he''s always been quite self deprecating. He''s a gorgeous man and I think his acting abilities, while maybe not as good as some, is very enjoyable.\
But of course he''ll be hated by many on DL simply because he''s good looking, successful, has a handsome lover, and by all appearances seems to be a quite happy, content man.
Holy Moly posted a naked photo or photos a few years ago that were supposedly of John Barrowman - not the hot dog one.\
I think they might have been saved on one of my external HDD. I''ll have a look when I get home and upload them.
"His vice was much better than I had expected..."\
I vice, while admirable, is not on the level of his vice, which just squeezes me just nice.
Uhhh, no, R55, those of us who hate him do so because he''s a mediocrity who''s been up his own ass for as long as he''s been shoved down our throats by the BBC.
I love John Barrowman with my whole heart.
I love him too! He''s so charismatic and comes across as someone who loves and makes the most of all that life has to offer.
Charismatic, RHubba Hubba? Uhh, no. Hugh Jackman has charisma. Barrowman''s a robot. He is smart to be sticking to the UK and not trying for international stardom. He''s too old to attempt that now, anyway.
Barrowman is a soul worth loving. Too bad so many shrew like mo''s on DL aren''t capable of recognizing John for the saint he is.
This shrew likes mo''s but not Barrowman. He''s an unnecessarily irritating presence on my TV screen and his singing voice is, at best, passable.
Maybe when Torchwood starts airing on STARZ he''ll become better known in the US
Please don''t be ayb. r61. I like ayb almost as much as John Barrowman.
Saw John and Scott interacting at West End Bares the other night. They seemed totally loved up - at one point John, who was hosting, went into the crowd, stood next to Scott and gave him a kiss, after declaring that he loved England because that''s where he met ''his husband.'' It was all very sweet (as well as jealousy inducing!).%0D\
Both are extremely hot and look great for their ages (or, indeed, any age). Some people just do have it all!
Not a fan of Barrowman in a music sense. But he sings this rather well.
Here he is on Loose Women recently. His usual energetic self. He does rather lose me towards the end when he asserts that attending one of his concerts will be one of the most entertaining nights out ever for those who attend (!!!?!).
[quote] I love John Barrowman. He is so handsome and has a great personality. He is just so over the top gay it''s funny. He cannot be like that in real life...%0D\
Actually, part of the reason I adore him is because he IS like that in real life. A friend of a friend I met once worked on Doctor Who when Captain Jack was on it, so of course I grilled him about working with John Barrowman. He said John is exactly like he is on tv and that he''s fun and seems like a genuinely nice guy. I believe his exact description was "overly sugared child"%0D\
Personally, I think how he is on tv is exactly who he is and isn''t a put-on. Look at it this way, the man cannot act his way out of a paper bag. (Love the man, but he sucked on Desperate Housewives!)
I love John with my whole heart. His is perfection to me. Gill is almost his equal, but but I won''t allow myself to become infatuated with the husband of the man I love with my whole heart. \
I actually smell flowers when I see these two together.
Um, R68? You need to get your own life sweetheart. Just sayin''
He''s a raging narcissist while being nothing to write home about in any department except his dick size.
What an irony.\
They''re singing it at Faenol. (Or Vaynol) Vaynol was the estate of Sir Michael Duff: a married but gay, handsome, and very very rich baronet who was a star of 30s society, like his sister Lady Julia.
My life would be filled with so much joy if John was in it. I can imagine waking up every morning to his beautiful smile and lovely eyes. Maybe he smells of cinnamon, wafting his presence throughout our home as he makes his way to the kitchen to brew me a cup of organic coffee... aaahh, one can only dream!
So, initially I thought r68 was the winner with: "I actually smell flowers when I see these two together."%0D\
But r72 gets the win: "Maybe he smells of cinnamon, wafting his presence throughout our home as he makes his way to the kitchen to brew me a cup of organic coffee..."
Wishing DL were in Smell-o-rama
R68 and R72 have issues. I love the man, but they take the care. Stalkers much?
Oh, that would be cool. With every subscription you''ll receive a smell-o-rama Datalounge strip. Scratch ... and ... sniff!
When I see John and Scott together, besides smelling flowers I also hear heavenly music and my daffodil gets stiff and fragrant. My back will arch and my shoulders square as if being held from behind. I often dream of being their shared boi blow-up doll that helps them remain faithful to one another while reducing the chances that one or both might suffer a spuge hemorrhage or testicle infarction. \
Come-on r73, I really want this win!
Thank you for that, r76. Whatever that was. %0D
r73 - disturbed
R75 Scratch-and-sniff datalounge would be interesting but I think I''d opt out on the threads about Cheryl or eating ass!
"Overly sugared child" was from this board. It was the description the "DW crew guy" who used to post here used for Barrowman.
R79 Seriously? I wonder if its the same guy I met?
He''s seen more dick than a Navy doctor.
Wasn''t he in the short-lived camp classic Titans?
R72, maybe it WOULD be that perfect and beautiful waking up next to John Barrowman every morning.....%0D\
Then on the other hand, maybe he''d wake up with pillow hair and a string of drool hanging off of his chin. He''d sit up in bed and pick smelly cheese from between his toes, then go into the bathroom and rip a loud fart while he took his morning piss. Think about it.
Umm...hate to burst the bubbles of all the Johnny Barrowman fans, but this is not a nice man. I am familiar with him from his CENTRAL PARK WEST days and on-set he was a closeted, arrogant, homophobic, grade-A asshole who would routinely throw other gays under the bus to deflect attention from himself. Truly the worst kind of closeted man whether he needed to hide in the entertainment industry or not. His true character revealed itself during that time, as it always does under stress, and it was ugly. Big deal he finally came out. A leopard doesn''t change its spots. He''s still an abject narcissist.
Sorry R84 but I''m pretty sure you''re full of shit. I don''t know for sure but I think John came out before CPW.
Turned you down, did he, R84? Bitter, bitter.
Absolutely not, R85, Barrowman was definitely in the closet at the time of CPW, it''s the exact same time he made up those fake "relationships" with Stefanie Powers and Angie Dickinson. After CPW flopped he was being lined up to do commercials for a cologne company and in an interview for US magazine he not only bragged about how well endowed he was he also said he loved just letting out a great big noisy fart from time to time. Bye, bye, cologne commercials. He was not landing any roles in film or TV here (like the lead in WILL & GRACE) because he simply wasn''t appealing or talented enough. His reputation from the CPW set and elsewhere was getting around, so to speak. He had to go back to the UK with his tail between his legs to re-build his career there. He didn''t come out until a few years after he was back there, probably when he started on DOCTOR WHO.
[quote] He was not landing any roles in film or TV here (like the lead in WILL & GRACE)%0D\
Yeah, he didn''t get any roles but it came down to him and Eric McCormick for Will. Getting down to the last two is pretty impressive.%0D\
Wow R87, you are jealous or bitter or something. damn!
He had to endure Darren Star slobbering over him and under him for extendes periods of time to land the CPW role and to hold onto it when there was a "refurbishment" midway through the season. CBS wanted him to get killed off by Melissa Errico''s character.
Not jealous or bitter, R88, I''m pretty happy with myself. Just calling a spade a spade where Barrowman''s concerned.\
I have an agent friend in London who said that Barrowman''s treatment of his boyfriend Paco was shameful when he dumped him to go to NY for CPW. They''d lived together for at least a year after they were in MATADOR together-Paco played the back-end of the bull. Barrowman decided he needed to be "single" and chucked Paco out of his life. He''s an abject narcissist and a world-class creep who''s treated people like shit.
[quote]He had to endure Darren Star slobbering over him and under him for extendes periods of time[/quote]%0D\
Uhhh, sounds pleasant.
Nope R90, Barrowman broke up with that boyfriend years before CPW etc - as he explains in his autobiography he met and was living with his partner Scott in 1993/1994, before CPW. He also describes living in NY with Scott during CPW filming.
And you believe everything in his "autobiography," R92?
It''s equally insane to worship or revile a celebrity one will never know (whereas frivolous gossip and mockery is fine), but the send-ups of over-the-top adoration are very funny.\
Mostly because every gay male celebrity has straight female stalkers who sound exactly like that, and who camp out (no pun intended) on DL to rhapsodize about their obsession, while never making the slightest advance in their gay-rights support.\
That''s off-topic. But they do sound like the ''cinnamon'' post.
More than I do an anonymous message on this board R93! Particularly ones that are ''from a friend of a friend etc...''%0D\
Besides, it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s a simple matter of dates %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93 Matador was in 1991, CPW 1995. Barrowman was in Sunset in 1994, when he started going out with his partner.%0D
Oh, come on. You think Barrowman and his partner would create an entire elaborate conspiracy concerning how and when they met and became a couple, fabricate the experience of having lived together in a foreign country, and keep up these lies for years and years (with the surely large number of friends and colleagues who knew them then never spilling), simply to try to hide the OMG shocking fact that Barrowman once dumped someone?
R96 You forgot to mention that the book was written by his sister, so his family is in on the lie to.%0D
I love John with my whole heart and penis too.

As a straight chick here who loves John, first I must say I''m not a stalker. Second, I''m on a gay webite so obviously I''m gay friendly. Heck I''ve been to a pride and I''m boycotting Target! I also have the equality sticker in my car, which happens to be a subaru, so I get hit on by a lot of women! lol
Right there with ya R98! *swoon*
I think John is ovah here in the UK, he has not been on tv for oh at least a few months - unless he is busy filming something else.
I think most of us got very tired of his "me, me, me" act on every chat shot and family entertainment shows.
Like the equally reviled (then) James Corden, we just had too much of Barrowman - on tv every saturday night, his book, his record, his tour, etc. blah blah blah ...
I will always be in love with John as the most beautiful Zaza ever in La Cage Aux Folles.
WEHT the Jackass who started this thread? Did she survive the grease fire?
