Since then, roles in Smash, CSI: Miami, Grey's Anatomy,
Law & Order, etc.,

John Barrowman was born in Glasgow in 1967,
but by '75 he and his family had settled in Joliet, Illinois,
where he learned to soften his Scottish accent.
His first big role was as Billy Crocker in Cole Porter's Anything Goes,
in the West End.
After that, watch the list of theatrical and television roles grow!
