John Barrowman Would Love To Be In A Disney Live-Action Remake

John Barrowman Promoted To Series Regular Across All CW DC TV Shows Heroic Hollywood

John Barrowman has played some pretty memorable characters in the sci-fi world. From Doctor Who, where he played Captain Jack Harkness, to his appearances across The CW’s DCTV shows, beginning on Arrow and making his way to Legends of Tomorrow as Malcolm Merlyn.

So what would John Barrowman like to tackle next? A Disney live-action movie, of course! Speaking at the Dallas Fan Expo this weekend, Barrowman said he’d love to be a part of a movie like Beauty and the Beast.

“I’d love to do a Disney live action movie. I really would. It’s just a question of what ones they’re going to do now because of the massive success they’ve had with Beauty and the Beast, which I thought was awesome. I sat like a kid in a candy store watching it.”

Asked which character Barrowman would like to play, he isn’t particularly very picky and would be into playing any character so long as he gets to be a part of the Disney magic.

“I don’t know [which character I would want to play]. I don’t have an answer to that, but it’s always been a dream of mine to be in a Disney film. And whether it’s a voice, or if it was Disney live action, so because of that movie, I think there’s going to be plenty of Disney live action movies coming out, maybe with animated animals, all that sort of stuff. I don’t know. But fingers crossed.”

Barrowman will next be seen in this Tuesday’s season finale of Legends of Tomorrow, where he’s a part of the Legion of Doom. Legends will air at a special time on Tuesday at 8/7c instead of 9/8c on The CW.


The Walt Disney Animation Library, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 52

Disney Disney had made an unconventional “franchise” out of remaking its animated classics as live-action blockbusters. Combined with their Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stables, it has ensured the company’s continued domination in the film sphere. Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book were at the forefront of that charge the last few years. Now, with Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters (our review here), now is a great time to look back at Disney’s amazing animated catalog and how they stack up against each other.

Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. This list specifically focuses on those from the Walt Disney Animation department, so sorry Brave Little Toaster fans, of which I’m one. No Pixar flicks either, but fans of that studio are in luck, as we ranked their films last summer. You can check that list out below.

I haven’t seen Saludos Amigos, Make Music Mine, Song of the South, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, & The Three Caballeros, hence their exclusionNaturally, we’ll most likely disagree about the specific ordering. Let’s think of it as a conversation starter. I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments!

    He’s certainly got the look of a Disney cartoon brought to life. His singing isn’t half bad either.
