John Barrowman has established himself as a sort of pop culture icon, through his work on Doctor Who, Torchwood, and most recently on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. But would the actor be interested in lending his talents to one of Hollywood's newest phenomenons - live action remakes of Disney films?
Barrowman was asked about it during his panel at this weekend's Fan Expo Dallas, and ComicBook.com was there to catch his answer.
"I'd love to do a Disney live action movie." Barrowman revealed. "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."
With that in mind, the biggest question would be what character Barrowman would be interested in playing. But according to the actor and singer (who most recently showcased his singing talents in the musical crossover between Supergirl and The Flash), there isn't a specific character he has his sights set on playing.
"I don't know [which character I would want to play]." Barrowman admitted. "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."
Disney is currently developing adaptations of The Lion King, Mulan, and Aladdin, with several more live action remakes planned in the future, so there's certainly plenty of options for Barrowman to lend his talents to.
