It’s been a little while since we’ve had any Torchwood news, so I’m happy to finally havea little bit of casting news! Remember the news a while back that Torchwood was casting the role of Brad, who was going to be a
Washington D.C. bartender in his late 20s who hooks up with Jack for a
“mutually satisfying one-night stand?” The casting notice also said that any interested actors should be
comfortable with “intimate scenes Well, we now know that Brad is going to be played by 27-year-old Canadian actor Dillon Casey.
Clearly, Jack hasn’t lost his eye for attractive men!
A picture of Casey horsing around with Barrowman first popped up on this Twitpic account on February 12th. And to be sure of the news, I confirmed it myself as well.
Dillon might look familiar to U.S. viewers for his recent role as Noah on The Vampire Diaries, but he’s also been on SoapNet’s Being Erica, as well as doing single episodes of Skins and Warehouse 13.
He also played Trevor Lemonde on the short-lived SoapNet show MVP, which included his character doing an underwear campaign.
Even though Dillon is only around for a single episode, I’m told this isn’t the only relationship Jack has with a man during T:MD. Stay tuned for more details on that!
Until then, thoughts on Mr. Dillon?
