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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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”.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
