Who would win, Dr. Horrible or Captain Jack Harkness? We don't know yet, but lots of people are all a'twitter.
AfterElton.com, one of the Logo channel's websites, ran a poll for the Gay Man of the Decade. The poll lists several gay men, and not in alphabetical order, with Neil Patrick Harris and John Barrowman at the top of the list. Harris played Dr. Horrible on Joss Whedon's hit web series, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog. Barrowman has played Captain Jack Harkness on both Dr. Who and Torchwood.
Harris tweeted about the poll over the weekend, rallying his Dr. Horrible peers, including Nathan Fillion (Captain Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly and Serenity), as well as Felicia Day (Codex from The Guild), quickly taking the lead, according to the coy Ed Kennedy over at AfterElton. Alyssa Milano, and Harris's How I Met Your Mother co-star and former Buffy star Alyson Hannigan also rallied for Harris. All in good fun, of course. It's particularly funny because Harris has been on twitter less than two months. His twitter handle is ActuallyNPH.
Barrowman is not without fans himself, including Jonathan Ross, a UK talk show host and friend of Barrowman. And author Neil Gaiman tweeted support for Barrowman as well. And more, it's gotten downright crazy, and After Elton is enjoying the attention. Barrowman's twitter account is TeamBarrowman.
The poll is now set to close tomorrow at midnight. I assume east coast time (GMT +6). So if you have any interest in which man ends up on top, vote now.
