Daytime fans know the power of the acting chops of Justin Hartley, most noticeably up through the beginning of fall on CBS’ The Young and the Restless where he played Adam Newman.
Whether the actor submits himself for contention in the Lead Actor category for the upcoming Daytime Emmy Awards we are waiting to find out. But, Hartley definitely should. He delivered some of the best work of the past TV season on daytime and primetime.
When Hartley departed Y&R for his primo role on NBC’s new highly-touted nighttime series, This Is Us, he received even far greater and more far-reaching recognition in a role that is a perfect fit for his talents as actor Kevin Pearson.
Now comes word as the end of the year “Best and Worst in TV” lists role out from various media outlets, that Hartley was named by TV Line as the “Biggest Acting Revelation In a Drama Series” for his performance on This Is Us. Hartley took to Twitter to offer his thanks and acknowledgement for the nod.
So, have you enjoyed Justin’s performance on This Is Us so far? Do you hope he throws his name into the ring for the Daytime Emmy Lead Actor field? Comment below!
