john pictures \o/

The event was the public launch of CBC's How Do You Solve a Problem Like a Maria? -- the search for the one who will portray Maria in the upcoming stage production of The Sound of Music.  The top10 finalists were there, they performed 2 songs and each did quick interview with the host.

Blah blah blah, let's get to the pictures shall we?

John on stage with the host of the show, Gavin Crawford (best known here for This Hour is 22 Minutes) talking about the show. 





Nipples!  LOL





After it was over, a crowd formed around John for autographs and pictures.  Stupid me forgot to bring something for him to sign.  Hopefully I can get him to sign my DVDs at one of the shows.  Anyway, I found a spot right by his side behind 2 ladies who I think were his publicists/assistants/whoever.  Since I didn't have anything for him to sign, I just stood there for a while to watch him.  John is a pro at this.  When he realized how big the crowd was, he took control of the situation telling everyone that he will do only autographs first, then photographs.



Probably the best picture I have of him smiling.  And the guy taking the picture with him was cute so win/win!



Did I mention that I had a really good view of John's ass?  :D



From a different point of view



I tried to get pictures of him when he was looking up but I usually ended up with these funny expressions!









Oh yea, I also saw George Stroumboulopolous (I think that's right, lol) in the crowd.  I like him and his show, The Hour.

Guh.

I'm supposed to be concentrating on getting camping stuff ready for this weekend, but I think I need to take a minute, after looking at these pics.

The man is just painfully pretty.

(And I have a minor crush on George Stromboulopolous, from when he was the 'edgy' MuchMusic VJ, back in the day.)

Oops. Sorry for the distraction ;) He just is so very pretty, isn't he?

I like George S. too. I'm finding that I watch at least a portion of The Hour almost every day.

Isn't he? *sigh* I can't believe he's actually here! I always thought I would have to go to the UK to see him.

I have absolutely no frame of reference for this guy, besides talk about him on my flist, but he is ADORABLE!!! He's from Torchwood, right? I have that on my netflix queue. I may need to move it up!!

He's done lots of stuff -- West End musicals, tv/movie roles here and there -- but yes, he is best known as Captain Jack Harkness of Torchwood. His character originated on Doctor Who and then TW was spun-off.

Yay for Netflix! Although, I do have to warn you, TW S1 is not great, by any means. There are moments of awesomeness but you can tell that the writers were trying to find their groove. There's only 13 eps so it's not like a huge time investment. S2, which finished airing a couple of months ago, is soooooo much better.

Okay, thanks for the warning. I'll be sure to stick it out.

If I were going to rent Doctor Who, where would you suggest I start? There have been a ton of different versions, right?

I just watched the episode of Robin Hood where Robin tries to kill the black knights, and ends up fighting Allan over the boiling oil. SO GOOD!! I'm so sad about Allan being semi(maybe all the way)-bad, though!

Doctor Who has been around since the '60s and then stopped in the '80s. Those eps are generally called Classic Who. The "New Doctor Who" started in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston playing the 9th Doctor -- The Doctor can regenerate which explains the changing actors -- and is probably the best place to start for newbies. Captain Jack was introduced in this season as well. S2-4 (which is airing now) has David Tennant as the 10th Doctor and Captain Jack has made a few appearances.

You don't really need to watch old Who to understand new Who. I only have vague memories of watching the show when I was a child. I actually watched DW out of order and didn't find it too difficult to follow along. Hope that helps!

Ooo, I liked that RH ep! When he was getting ready to kill the Black Knights, v hot :)

You know, I know I do EVERYTHING backwords (Angel before Buffy, for example), but I have seen every episode of Torchwood and am just now getting into Doctor Who. I am watching it through, ahem, other means than BBCA, so I am going back and forth between David Tennannt and Christopher Eccleston episodes, and it is a little confusing, but once you understand that the Dr. can regenerate, and leave it at that, its all good.

I could not take my eyes off of John Barrowman and, therefore, watched all of Torchwood in one fell swoop. He is so, so perfectly pretty and manly.

hee! I also watched TW/DW backwards. First Torchwood, then the 3 last eps of DW S3 because Capt Jack was on, then I watched the rest of S3, then I went back to S1 and went forward from there.

Yea, a couple of gals on my f-list were talking about/posting pictures of Barrowman and I was all "Who is that pretty pretty man?! I must watch this show Torchwood!"

Amen, its really like they just couldn't get their mind around who Captain Jack and his Merry Men would be. Gwen grates, Owen is a sex addict, Tosh is only good for the high tech stuff, and Ianto only makes coffee and Captain Jack just orders everyone around and hugs them at the end while they are crying.

Series 2 shows each of the character's as three dimensional and has the James Marsters love. Yummy.

LOL Yes, he is! He really is the perfect man.

Ah, so that's how you spell George's name! I was close ;) George is just OK for me, looks-wise, but I really admire him for knowing his stuff and doing his homework. He can interview anyone and have a good conversation.

omg, he is just ADORABLE. He's one of those stars who seems to really shine around his fans, you know? Just a big lovable sexy fanboy who's happy making other people happy. Too CUTE!

Holy hell! There is just absolutely nothing wrong with that man at all. Hello, gorgeous! I am not sure I would be able to maintain composure with his arm around me.

Or maybe I would just cry and keep asking if Tosh is in 1812 with Billy now.

No, there is nothing wrong with him. He is Mr Perfect.

Tosh & Owen :( Tears were shed *sniff*
