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.

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

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 !!

Or sink in his own ship the same way he did in ‘Titanic’.

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.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
