    He is a good guy and I already knew from his work on TV he wasnt coming back to Y&R and now this. He could take over the MI role Tom Cruise made so popular. His possibilities are endless. Now somebody grow some balls and bring Muhney back and if Braeden doesnt like it, tough shit!


    Nikki replied

    Hey Timmm, You look at J.H. and see exactly what I see. If you watch (trailer Ghost Protocol) he could easily be Jeremy Renner. Take a look at Tom C. Jeremy R & the girl sitting in the plain trying to decide what move to make.I can so easily see J.H. in there and if you look at Rogue Nation you could easily take J.Renner out and put J.T. in and I think he’d make a better Brent. He’s also very smart. He knows he needs to get into night-time shows for producers to see him. This guy was made for the big screen and he’s on his way.

    Really, Nikki. If you’re going to recast the movie, put Justin in the lead role. Jeremy Renner is, in my opinion, the sexiest man in movies, an opinion shared by his AMERICAN HUSTLE costar Elisabeth Rohm and by the legendary Rita Moreno. I think his coming into the MI series improved them greatly. But I could easily see Justin Hartley replacing Cruise. He’s starting to look tired.

    Seems Mr. Hartley is not coming to back to his Adam role on Y&R anytime soon. I wonder if Adam needs to return. After a decade of outlandish plots and nearly impossible to believe contrivances, I could be satisfied this Newman son remains dead. That is probably not the case, but still, there are many stories to tell with Newman’s other three children and his grandchildren.


    Timmm replied

    I agree with you UNTIL Victor either dies or Eric retires. Adam was and could be a strong central Newman to take over the family lead.

    Sammie Jo replied

    Eric Braden had nothing to do with mm’s departure, that was all him and his roaming hands, and if it wasn’t, then he should have sued, but he didn’t.


    Timmm replied

    A: Read Eric’s book!

    B: CBS never released a statement over MM’s departure.

    *You cannot make a statement UNLESS you were there!

    Sammie Jo replied

    I never said CBS released a statement,

    A: EB was the one who said he had nothing to do with MM’s departure, repeatedly.

    B: Actress playing Summer was the one who made the accusations, if they were untrue, MM should have sued her, he didn’t.

    C: I know that if someone told a story like that about me and it wasn’t true, we’d be in court.

    D: You weren’t there either.

    Justin Hartley was destined for the big screen..
    There is so much ahead for Justin, it has just begun for him..


  3. Nikki says:

    I guess we’re all suppose to act surprised at this but I’m not. I said a long time ago this guy is going places and this is just the beginning for him. I never saw him in Passion but the first time I saw him in Y & R I could see him in movies with Tom Cruise. Whatever emotion he has to play he shows it on his face so well you almost believe its true. I love “This is us” Again I think he takes it away. I believe whatever role he’s given, he’ll run with it and make it his own. I’m so very happy for him.


    Sammie Jo replied

    If only JH could suddenly have a twin brother that his mother didn’t know she had, then he could have his movie career and we could have Adam back. lol


  4. Mary SF says:

    I thought he would end up in one of the many super hero or sci fi franchises– but I suppose Bad Moms Christmas is a start– and probably fits in with his shooting schedule for TIU– this movie role won’t land him an Oscar– but it gets him into the game if that is direction he wants to go with his career– but noticing more and more “movie stars” doing cable television these days, proving in the end a paying gig is better than no gig at all.


    BGH replied

    Hartley actually played Aquaman in a pilot for DC comics and was Green Arrow on the CW show Smallville at one point if memory serves me correctly. He also fits the Aquaman comic book character better than Jason Momoa. It would surprise me if he didn’t land a major superhero role because we know he’s a DC fan and they could use his help! I’m still not convinced he won’t return to Genoa City, Y&R has not been shy about showing his picture the past few weeks.


  5. Nik says:

    I always felt that the small screen would lead to bigger things for him. Loved him as the Green Arrow on Smallville, he was sooooooooooooo good!


  6. James R. Poissant says:

    I knew this was going to happen for him. Very happy for what he’s been given!!!


  7. Mo says:

    I’m surprised there’s a sequel.


  8. Rhonda says:

    Happy for him, but Justin can do so much better!
    Bad Moms was a horrible movie and I can only imagine the sequel being even worse.


  9. k/kay says:

    This is a movie that will probably go straight to DVD ok get over yourselves


  10. ccc says:

    He should not sink to a trash movie like this. I guess it’s a foot in the door.


  11. BJax says:

    He’s much better than being is a second-rate comedy sequel like this. I hope it does well, but Hartley is slumming it by taking this role, IMO. I hope he gets better film opportunities in the near future. He definitely should be on both Marvel & DC’s radar for an action picture, with a lot of shirtless screen time.


  12. Tani Sterling says:

    Know nothing about the movie. He always had a certain “something” which can ride out a stumble or two. For me, his cadence was not properly balanced in the first months of the R & Y. Now he needs to fall into an intellectual mystery type romance; mentally secure, but discretely delightful. He can play more much more than “eye candy”.
