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

  2. Michelle says:

    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 :)

  3. Ana says:

    One word: yummy!!

  4. TMW says:

    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.

  5. Alex says:

    Do not like this casting at all.

  6. vix101 says:

    Will they let him keep his lovely scouse accent though…that is the question.

  7. Lia says:

    oh hello gorgeous!

  8. Lorena says:

    well Jack is going to have some competition, first this handsome guy and Conrad’s son

  9. Adam says:

    I don’t know him.. but it be interest to see Emily past and how it will play out

  10. Nic says:

    Never seen this guy in anything before, but he looks like a European Channing Tatum. Slurp.

  11. brutony says:

    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?

    • Sarah says:

      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.

      • brutony says:

        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!

    • Bob says:

      Ever seen the guy act?

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


      Hope to see you in more ASAP

      • brutony says:

        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!

        • katy917 says:

          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!

  12. Gerald says:

    I love him and it was sad when his pilot didn’t get picked up…. so I’m happy.

  13. vanessa says:

    Barry is a great actor and this new role is well deserved, his mam is so proud and as she is a friend of mine I am also proud……..well done Barry and am sure you will be a hit xxxxx

  14. rebekah says:

    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.

  15. Carolyn says:

    Well done Barry, always said you would end up in the USA. Were both really proud of you. Watched Reevenge in oz.. Can’t wait to see you in the next series. Congratulations buddy and good luck with the move. Carolyn & Olly x

  16. gillian smith says:

    he is not only a dam good actor he is a lovely person, I should know he is my nephew.

  17. Laura says:

    I am in love

  18. Laura says:

    All I can say is that I am in love already! Great casting ABC! All my girlfriends agree

  19. T J Allen says:

    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
