He is a good guy and I already knew from his work on TV he wasnt coming back to Y&R and now this. He could take over the MI role Tom Cruise made so popular. His possibilities are endless. Now somebody grow some balls and bring Muhney back and if Braeden doesnt like it, tough shit!

Hey Timmm, You look at J.H. and see exactly what I see. If you watch (trailer Ghost Protocol) he could easily be Jeremy Renner. Take a look at Tom C. Jeremy R & the girl sitting in the plain trying to decide what move to make.I can so easily see J.H. in there and if you look at Rogue Nation you could easily take J.Renner out and put J.T. in and I think he’d make a better Brent. He’s also very smart. He knows he needs to get into night-time shows for producers to see him. This guy was made for the big screen and he’s on his way.

Really, Nikki. If you’re going to recast the movie, put Justin in the lead role. Jeremy Renner is, in my opinion, the sexiest man in movies, an opinion shared by his AMERICAN HUSTLE costar Elisabeth Rohm and by the legendary Rita Moreno. I think his coming into the MI series improved them greatly. But I could easily see Justin Hartley replacing Cruise. He’s starting to look tired.

Seems Mr. Hartley is not coming to back to his Adam role on Y&R anytime soon. I wonder if Adam needs to return. After a decade of outlandish plots and nearly impossible to believe contrivances, I could be satisfied this Newman son remains dead. That is probably not the case, but still, there are many stories to tell with Newman’s other three children and his grandchildren.

I agree with you UNTIL Victor either dies or Eric retires. Adam was and could be a strong central Newman to take over the family lead.

Eric Braden had nothing to do with mm’s departure, that was all him and his roaming hands, and if it wasn’t, then he should have sued, but he didn’t.

A: Read Eric’s book!

B: CBS never released a statement over MM’s departure.

*You cannot make a statement UNLESS you were there!

I never said CBS released a statement,

A: EB was the one who said he had nothing to do with MM’s departure, repeatedly.

B: Actress playing Summer was the one who made the accusations, if they were untrue, MM should have sued her, he didn’t.

C: I know that if someone told a story like that about me and it wasn’t true, we’d be in court.

D: You weren’t there either.

Justin Hartley was destined for the big screen..
There is so much ahead for Justin, it has just begun for him..

I guess we’re all suppose to act surprised at this but I’m not. I said a long time ago this guy is going places and this is just the beginning for him. I never saw him in Passion but the first time I saw him in Y & R I could see him in movies with Tom Cruise. Whatever emotion he has to play he shows it on his face so well you almost believe its true. I love “This is us” Again I think he takes it away. I believe whatever role he’s given, he’ll run with it and make it his own. I’m so very happy for him.

If only JH could suddenly have a twin brother that his mother didn’t know she had, then he could have his movie career and we could have Adam back. lol

I thought he would end up in one of the many super hero or sci fi franchises– but I suppose Bad Moms Christmas is a start– and probably fits in with his shooting schedule for TIU– this movie role won’t land him an Oscar– but it gets him into the game if that is direction he wants to go with his career– but noticing more and more “movie stars” doing cable television these days, proving in the end a paying gig is better than no gig at all.

Hartley actually played Aquaman in a pilot for DC comics and was Green Arrow on the CW show Smallville at one point if memory serves me correctly. He also fits the Aquaman comic book character better than Jason Momoa. It would surprise me if he didn’t land a major superhero role because we know he’s a DC fan and they could use his help! I’m still not convinced he won’t return to Genoa City, Y&R has not been shy about showing his picture the past few weeks.

I always felt that the small screen would lead to bigger things for him. Loved him as the Green Arrow on Smallville, he was sooooooooooooo good!

Happy for him, but Justin can do so much better!
Bad Moms was a horrible movie and I can only imagine the sequel being even worse.

He should not sink to a trash movie like this. I guess it’s a foot in the door.

He’s much better than being is a second-rate comedy sequel like this. I hope it does well, but Hartley is slumming it by taking this role, IMO. I hope he gets better film opportunities in the near future. He definitely should be on both Marvel & DC’s radar for an action picture, with a lot of shirtless screen time.

Know nothing about the movie. He always had a certain “something” which can ride out a stumble or two. For me, his cadence was not properly balanced in the first months of the R & Y. Now he needs to fall into an intellectual mystery type romance; mentally secure, but discretely delightful. He can play more much more than “eye candy”.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
