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!

YESSSSSSSSSSS…….

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.

Yes would be great to see Eric

Amen! Bad enough having to put up with him on Y&R!
Keep him off Justin’s show!

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?

Timmm

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 such a sweet guy. Eric respects his professionalism. I also think Eric complementing Justin is a back hand to Michael Muhney. He despised him. But either way, I agree with you on one thing for sure, no Eric on “This is Us.” Its Justin’s show and it should stay that way. Justin did suggest the idea of Eric making an appearance. IF Eric were to show up as a drunk, a drug dealer or a manny, okay, that would be interesting!

for – ALL – intent and purpose

Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley … won the war, as it were

with Victor Newman

AND… that counts in my book… decades plus watching his sir

watching TWO Adams… conquer Genoa City and it’s biggest stalwart

DREAM TEAM

love both

MM and JH brought intensity and va va voom … even stirred Eric Braedon

Patrick
Patrick

without – an’y – Adam … to be a thorn in “his” – side –

have at him… let’s GO

the character of Adam… brought alive this show

if it has to include EB… so it is

this at least brought some switch…. one of Victor Newmans own offspring challenged

Dolores

Yes, what an awesome idea!

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

soapqueenforever

Maybe if enough girls dream together we can make it come true!! I’ll rub his wet back anytime!! Wet or dry

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 was never into Milo…not my granola bar.

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.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
