Grey’s Anatomy Boss Tabs Torchwood Captain for Gilded Lilys
Shonda Rhimes’ (showrunner for Grey’s Anatomy) upcoming period drama pilot Gilded Lilys has found a fantastically good-looking leading man for the ladies to swoon over. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to announce Gilded Lilys will play host to the marvelous talents of Captain Jack! No, not Jack Sparrow. I mean the one, the only, the immortal Jack Harkness of Doctor Who and Torchwood fame.
John Barrowman has made a name for himself playing the “I’ll have sex with anything that moves” type that is Captain Jack, and will continue to play to that strength in Gilded Lilys. He plays Julius Ashford Lily, the golden boy of the wealthy Lily family. He’s his mother’s favorite, and the women don’t mind him too much neither. Like any handsome man of means, Julius is charming when he needs to be and has no problem getting in bed with any woman he desires. His family is responsible for opening New York City’s first luxury hotel in the year 1895, so don’t expect anybody to be wearing modern clothing. This isn’t a time travel story, as awesome as that would be. This is 100% legitimate period work. Though it wouldn’t hurt to have time travel as a back up plan if the period stuff doesn’t roll with audiences.
Also in the cast is (get ready, there is a long list of names coming up) Brian F. O’Byrne, Blythe Danner, Madeline Zima, Matt Lauris, Matt Long, Brigid Brannagh, Maury Steling and Sarah Bolger. KJ Steinberg wrote the pilot and Rhimes and Betsy Beers are executive producing.
