John Barrowman: Hero and classy gent

 This is steadily making its way around the internet and deservedly so. According to The Wales Online, John Barrowman, famous of course for playing Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who and Torchwood, intervened during a robbery at a hotel he's staying at. Two young men broke into another room and were busy ransacking it when the people staying in the room caught them. The boys tried to bolt, but Barrowman managed to tackle and restrain one of them until the police arrived. Now, that might be the end of the tale and he would receive praise for his selfless act of bravery, but this story doesn't end quite yet. After catching the youth, Barrowman offered to give him a backstage job at the show he's currently doing in Glasglow, because he thinks it will help the kid straighten his life out.

There's classy, then there's John Barrowman.
