    I love when actors from Hollyoaks make the journey across the great blue river.

  • Barry is a great actor. It’ll be brilliant to see him on Revenge, hopefully he’ll be causing as much trouble in The Hamptons as he did in Hollyoaks :)

  • Sloane starred in an ABC pilot called Gotham that didn’t get picked up. I guess ABC had a look around and found this gig for him.

  • Enough with the Brits on Yank TV already! We have more than plenty of out of work thespians who could fill these roles-why import them, with their fake accents, or lame attempts to hold it in?

    • Dear brutony,
      I believe we have just as many US actors taking jobs over here that could be done by real Brits, it all evens out in the end. Barry Sloane is a very fine actor and deserves every bit of success he gets in the UK or the US.

      • Yeah, but were the United States of America, Numero UNO! By the way, I assume youre a Brit? Is your last name Randall? Shes quite hot, and can star in my productions any day of the week!

    • Ever seen the guy act?

      It doesn’t matter where he’s from, he’s a great actor, that’s all that matters.

      Congratulations.

      Hope to see you in more ASAP

      • Nope, sorry to say, I havent seen him act-I only recently got BBC America HD. Doesnt matter, since every Brit whos ever acted seems to come across the pond upon our shores soon afterwards! Yep, another illegal alien, lol!

        • Could you seriously be any more xenophobic?? It’s pathetic! I assume there were auditions held for this role, and I also assume that anyone was allowed to go for auditions who fit the role they were trying to cast. He was obviously the actor who impressed tptb the most. Get over it and get over yourself!

      • In Liverpool people call them Mam :)

        He was great in Brookside aswell as Hollyoaks, so can’t wait to see him in Revenge

  • Yay another british guy with tiny eyes (not that im complaining!), hopefully he’ll a) be less horrible than jack and b) get to keep his accent.

  • He should be the next BOND. Craigh is not going to do but only one more Bond and Barry Slaone would be perfect for the next Bond in the 007 pantheon.r
