Torchwood star John Barrowman is coming to America, but it’s not for the Doctor Who spinoff or its upcoming American remake on Fox. At least, not yet.

The Scottish-born actor, who is also a U.S. citizen, will have a major role later this season in at least five episodes of ABC’s Desperate Housewives, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. Barrowman himself hinted at the gig last year. He has also been linked to the leading role in a film based on Marvel’s Captain America.
