Could Justin Hartley Foresee Y&R’s Eric Braeden Guest-Starring On THIS IS US?

Wouldn’t this be a soapy twist! TV viewers in America have fallen in love with NBC’s critically-acclaimed new hit dramedy series, This Is Us which stars Justin Hartley (Ex-Adam Newman) in the pivotal role of Hollywood sitcom actor, Kevin.

Hartley apppears alongside an all-star ensemble cast led by Milo Vertimiglia, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and recent Emmy winner, Sterling K. Brown.  In just two episodes, Justin has already received rave reviews for his performances, after his character has meltdown during a taping of his sitcom The Man-ny, and then later has to try to apologize to the network brass for walking off the job in such a public way.

Hartley spoke to Glamour about this most perfect of roles for him, the early success of This Is Us, his soap opera roots, and more.

When asked if Hartley could see Victor Newman AKA Eric Braeden on This Is Us, Justin replied: “He could be my dad’s dad! (Laughs) Milo’s dad!  He would do it probably, (Eric)’s a good guy. We hit it off right away. I think I made him laugh, which he wasn’t expecting. Our characters hated each other and Adam wanted to dethrone his father. He wants all the power. We would go at it in scenes together! He gets loud and I do, too. And then afterwards we’d laugh and tell jokes. (Eric and I) got along great. He’s got to come on This Is Us. He should watch it and do commentary! He should live tweet our show! That’d be awesome!”

So, would you like to see Eric Braeden show up and play Kevin’s grandfather on This Is Us?  Would you like to see some more scenes between these two talented gents? Share your thoughts in the comment section below of Justin’s casting idea!

That would be awesome. I’ve been watching Y&R since I was 10 years old everydaY over 26 years. Eric should totally do it
They have grear chemistry together as actors would be interesting to see them play different rolls together

Eric could pull it off in his sleep—I saw him do episodics and movies back in the day and he was good even way back then. It would be nice to see another soap actor take a break and do prime time.

Right–Eric owns any room he enters. I recall thinking this when he appeared in The Titanic

Hmmmmm. I wonder if doing primetime or dabbling in other ‘stuff’ is on his bucket list.
That was then, this is now. If he has the wherewithall, yeah!!!!! Go for it. But, I don’t knoooww!! I have noticed that Mr. Braeden reels a bit….very sublte, but it’s there. I am very familiar with the signs. He still looks good; but looks can be deceiving. If he has the ‘stamina’ ( LOL and HaHaHa), he should jump on the train.

It shows how much these two hit it off. It would be great to see Eric on something different. I bet he would do it and Justin can put it out there as a suggestion for his bosses at NBC.

Justin was just being nice. He couldn’t get off of Y&R fast enough. Eric Braeden’s hideous reputation has been known for years. He wisely had an outs clause in his contract and got the Primetime role. Smart man. Now he doesn’t have to look back at Y&R anymore.

As far as Braeden being on THIS IS US, uh, no thank you. Why ruin a hit show with an egomaniac whose acting isn’t up to the level of the present cast?

Betty, you obviously do not like Eric. That is fine. He is in person like he is on screen, mostly. He is a tough SOB who didnt have anything handed to him and doesnt go for the bull that is served up in Hollywood. I do believe its Eric’s show. He has been there forever and is a legend. He is widely know outside the acting circles. He is very popular with football players. Some of his female co-stars say he is a teddy bear behind his rustic shell. I firmly believe he likes Justin. How couldnt you. He is… Read more »

I rather see Milo on Y&R— that would be great— that scene with him wearing nothing but a towel proves he has the bod for daytime—-oh well a girl can dream– LOL

LOL…I love Milo but I don’t think he’ll be doing daytime anytime soon. But never say never, right? Besides Gilmore Girls he’s had steady prime time work. He was on “Heroes”, “The Bedford Diaries”, “American Dream”, “TheWhispers” and was in one of the ROCKY films. Dude’s in demand!

I’ve seen Eric do comedy on The Nanny. Now I think it’s time for him to do some network drama! He could play Kevin’s psychiatrist !!

I would love to see Eric and Justin team up again. Their acting chemistry together, was wonderful. It doesn’t get any better. The two of them on YR was awesome . They really need to do a big screen film together. It would be a block buster.

Anne Heche Final Autopsy Reveals No illegal Substances in Her System at the Time of Fatal Car Crash

The final autopsy report is in, which puts a bit more into perspective what happened to Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), when she crashed her car into a home back in August, which ultimately took her life.

It has been suggested for months that Heche was impaired while driving erratically on August 5th, which ultimately caused her to crash and suffer a life-ending brain injury.

However, the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner‘s office revealed that the final toxicology results (concluded from blood and urine tests taken when Heche went to the hospital) showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine. That indicates past use, the examiner confirmed. Results also showed prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury. There was no alcohol detected in Heche’s system either.

There had been speculation that Anne was inebriated at the time of the accident which was further fueled by an image that appeared to show a liquor bottle in the front seat of her vehicle.  In addition, the Fentanyl detected in Heche’s system was administered in the hospital after her injuries were sustained.

The medical examiner had determined that Anne died of inhalation and thermal injuries. She was trapped in her Mini Cooper for around 30 minutes before she was rescued by first responders. The official report lists sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as another “significant condition.”

Heche was hospitalized immediately following the fiery car crash. She went into a coma and was declared brain dead the evening of August 11th.  However, her body was kept on life support until August 14th when her organ recipients had been found.  She was 53-years-old at the time of her death.

What do you think about the autopsy report on the death of Anne Heche and the ending of such a talented and respected actress? Comment below.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.

Reports from Pro Wrestling.net, Fightful.com, David Bixenspan

So, what do you think of William Regal obtaining his release from AEW to go coach his son and return behind the scenes to work with the WWE in 2023? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
