John Barrowman, best known as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and Torchwood, has an upcoming meeting with the producers of Glee to discuss a potential appearance of the British star on FOX’s big show. Barrowman’s currently on his way to L.A. to shoot six episodes of Desperate Housewives, but he’s reportedly super excited to meet with Ryan Murphy and co., saying that he’s a huge fan of the show and calling himself a “gleek.” Here’s what Barrowman said in an interview with The Mirror UK about what role he might play in Glee:

“I absolutely love the show. What would I play in it? I’m not sure what kind of character I’d like to play, maybe I could be a teacher, you know, another teacher who comes in and helps out. That’s me just kind of brainstorming but the fact that they want to have a meeting with me is really quite nice in itself, it’s so exciting!”

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m crazy excited about this potential new star! I’m a huge Doctor Who fan and Barrowman fantastically plays one of my favourite characters. Barrowman also has extensive musical theatre experience, so he would fit in well with the likes of Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, and the show’s other Broadway stars. Also, if you need more convincing? Watch this:

Clearly he’s already all set to be on Glee!

    I knowwwwww, right?! I’m ridiculously excited. Do you watch Doctor Who and/or Torchwood, Danielle?

    YES, both! I have to show you the TARDIS cake I made for my husband’s birthday! He MUST play a Jack Harkness-ish character, somehow. A Regionals judge, perhaps?
