Former Dr. Who star John Barrowman wants a gay old role on Glee - as one of character Rachel Berry's homosexual dads.
Neither dad has been seen on the show yet and Glee creator Ryan Murphy is considering keeping them away from the camera - but Scottish-born Barrowman has submitted his name as one of the fathers should he change his mind.
He says, "I have no idea if I'll be in it, I met with their casting people and I said I'd love to be in it - I'd be good as one of Rachel's gay dads."
Barrowman has already proved to be a hit with TV audiences - he played the ex-boyfriend of Drea DeMatteo's character on five episodes of Desperate Housewives.
