Soap favorite and the former Smallville and Emily Owens MD star, Justin Hartley (Ex-Passions) has been cast as Patrick, the long-lost son of Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) in the hit ABC primetime soap opera Revenge when it returns for its third season.

The role of Patrick was one of the most sought after roles in Tinseltown these days, in that the character comes with a  multi-episode arc on a major and successful primetime television series!

With the addition of Hartley as Patrick, the Grayson family grows, and was needed to shake up the canvas! The ABC series already parted ways with Ashley Madekwe’s character of Ashely, and had killed-off Connor Paolo’s character of Declan Porter in the season two finale!

So what do you think of the casting of Justin Hartley as Madeleine Stowe’s on-screen son? Good casting choice? Excited to see Justin on Revenge? Comment below!

Looking forward to the new season and Justin character should add more excitement to the show. Thanks you for the information.

Revenge (ABC prime-time soap) is awesome!! One of the top 5 best tv shows.
Having Victoria’s son found will make this season full of suspense and thrills!!

Can’t wait to see what happens!

He was really uncharismatic and underwhelming on horrid soap opera emily owens. Casting directors of revenge should have cast a racial minority actor that’s part white w/ char not being emily’s half sibling. It would have been an organic way of creating more racial diversity on too white revenge. It was really messed up how they killed off takeda w/ the samurai shard. Typical hollywood loves to have white chars be better than Asian american chars at culturally Asian aspects like samurai wielding and martial arts. It’s similar to films like tom cruise’s “last samurai” and uma thurman’s “kill bill” w/c obviously influenced revenge. Casting fail for revenge bec they could have cast a racial minority actor. It could have created a storyline where some of the white chars are not comfortable and racist towards victoria having an offspring that’s a char of color. And revenge doesn’t need yet another char that’s white.

Blair was much better played by Kassie DePaiva over Mia Korf.

But that is your opinion. Assessing an actor’s talent is opinion based. But char of blair is a horrid example bec that was probably the only char that was ever whitewashed on all the day soap operas. Korf was part Asian american and oltl whitewashed blair’s part Asian american ethnicity. Day soap operas are already severely lacking when it comes to racial diversity. It’s worse when they whitewash a char from racial minority to white. There would have been more of a backlash if blair was portrayed by a part African american actress and then whitewashed. It’s highly doubtful though that writers and execs would recast a part African american actor w/ a white actor.

Thrilled to hear that Justin Hartley is joining Revenge!!! He should be a great fit, and I can’t wait to see the results. Bring on the new fall TV season!

Yummy can’t wait. He’s delicious to look at.

I like him. He is charismatic and sexy. And he is a good actor too.

I have not watched Revenge, and will now!

Who’s the father?

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

It’s Official! Former AEW Champ Jade Cargill Signs with WWE

All the reports and the rumors have been confirmed. Former AEW TBS Women’s champion, Jade Cargill has signed a new multi-year contract, but with rival WWE.

Cargill, who was AEW’s longest-reigning TBS champion and wrestled her last match on AEW TV programming just two weeks ago, started with WWE on Tuesday at its Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

In her first interview since joining WWE, Cargill spoke to ESPN and shared that a decision has already been made if she will go straight to the WWE main roster, or if she will first perform for its developmental brand, NXT.  Jade teased that fans are just going to have to stay tuned to see just how she will make her arrival.

In AEW, Cargill was a force to be reckoned with having held the AEW TBS Championship for Cargill for 508 days. She lost the title back in May of this year, and had been off AEW TV for quite some time, until a few weeks ago when she lost her final match to Kris Statlander.

Cargill, 31, has been wrestling professionally for two years. She has close ties to Cody Rhodes, who Jade admitted in her chat with ESPN, was one of the top two reasons she came to WWE.

AEW CEO and Owner, Tony Khan was asked about Cargill’s exit during a media call on Tuesday. Khan shared that he wished Jade all the best in her future and said he has nothing but positive things to say about her. Khan added Cargill would always be welcome in AEW.

Check out Jade’s first interview since becoming a top signing for WWE under their new umbrella TKO Group, below.

Now let us know, who do you think Jade will have her first feud with in the WWE? Do you think she has found the perfect fit for her talent in WWE? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
