Justin Hartley Speaks On Playing Gay On REVENGE & The Future For Patrick & Nolan!

As fans of ABC’s Revenge know, Patrick (Justin Hartley) and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) got quite close on last week’s episode, and viewers want to know what’s coming down the pike for the duo, and if this romance may be long-term, or short-lived?

The sexy Mr.  Hartley spoke with ET Online this week about the character development of Patrick being gay, what the cards may hold for Victoria, Nolan, and Emily and much more.  Here are a few interesting excerpts below:

Hartley on if he knew from the beginning of being cast on Revenge,  that Patrick was gay:  “I got a breakdown for this character and thought he was interesting, so I auditioned. Then, I think it was the next day, they brought me back to read again and the sides were different and it was evident that he was gay. I didn’t care if he was gay as long as it didn’t change the things I found to be interesting about the character, which was his mystery and levity — and, if anything, being gay made him more interesting to me because any time a character is given elements that make him different from the people that surround him, it enhances their story. So everything about the role was enticing to me and I’ve had a blast playing it so far in every regard. It’s a great show, a great character, and on a selfish note, I love being able to play something I’ve never played before!”

Hartley on if Patrick and Nolan will become a full-fledged relationship, or is it really about the exploration of a possible relationship:   “I think both. It’s the exploration of seeing what these feelings mean in a true way. Patrick’s saying, ‘I’m going to let you in, you’re going to let me in, we’re going to see where this goes and I’m going to trust you until I can’t trust you anymore.’  So we see where it goes. They’re both hopeful, they’re intrigued with one another, there’s chemistry and fire and passion, but also an understanding that they’re both damaged goods. For someone to say, ‘This is me, and I would like you to let me in,’ and the other person to reply with, ‘I would love that, there’s nothing better.'”

Hartley on the closer Patrick gets to Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), the bigger target he then would have become in Emily’s eyes: “Emily (Emily VanCamp) is going to get what she wants however she can, and the unintended consequences of that might make Patrick collateral damage. I don’t think Patrick sees the eminent threat Emily poses because he’s so invested in his mom; he’s taken his eye off the ball a bit when it comes to Emily and we’ll see if she crushes him or not as a result.”

So, Revengers! What do you hope happens with Patrick and Nolan?  Do you hope they will become serious boyfriends?  Do you think one, or both, are using their closeness as an ulterior motive?  Weigh-in!

The new change in creative power has so work for the 3rd season of the show..It continues to entertain and with more simplicity..Last season was a bit fast and furious. The Patrick character is a bit boring, but I am sure there is more to his story..Revenge is enjoyable!!

Please don’t let it be that they are using their closenes as ulterior motivies because it would be so nice to see Nolan (Gabriel Mann) have something good happen to him he has had it rough and lucky him getting to lock lips with Patrick (Justin Hartley). I want them to become serious boyfriends that are both amazing actors and have great chemistry as Polan. They get my vote SERIOUS BOYFRIENDS FOR #POLAN

Patrick and Nolan are the two most complex and charismatic characters currently on the Revenge canvas….and together they are dynamite. What makes them so interesting and intriguing is the fact that they are fully-fleshed individuals who are not simply stereotypical portrayals (despite Nolan’s flamboyant flair for fun and fashion.) Their “relationship” is actually central to the latest storyline and will move the plot forward….instead of them simply being “tokens” to add “diversity” to the show. This is how it is done…..a refreshing departure from most programs who push “campy and coarse” characters in their efforts to be contemporary and cool!… Read more »

This relationship between nolan and patrick was rushed and unnessesary, it brings nothing to the table except boredom. The talk whisperer and the pretty boy are just tokens for ratings, imo.

I find the Patrick and Nolan pairing very intriguing. This could be very complex and sort of be a Romeo and Juliet type of pairing given the shared hatred of the two most important people to them: Emily and Victoria. I look forward to watching the relationship development in a much improved Season 3 of Revenge.

I love Nolan & Patrick combo. Feel like they have been wonderers until the moment they met. They are my favorite part of the show now. I hope Nolan will have to make a hard decision later between Emily or true love he has been waiting for.

I just saw the video of them getting ‘it’ together and, I have to say, Justin has an abundant amount of sexual chemistry and perhaps it is intensified by Nolan’s presence. In any event it will be a shame these two become star crossed lovers, as happens when it comes to gay characters in film and tv!

you can find the videos on YouTube, scenes from the soap REVENGE. As a point of interest, he was married to his co-star on another soap and is now in a relationship with another co-star: Chrishell Stause. I guess we can assume we have another str8 actor playing a gay character on tv. Why is there a shortage of gay actors playing gay characters in film and tv?.

I like Justin Hartley.He is awesome.He was brilliant in smallville.I want to
see more of him in Revenge as this series is getting so interesting and intrigue .I
want to see Nolan and Patrick relationship grow deeper and they finally
get together as Nolan never has a steady relationship and he is lonely guy
whom Emily uses.

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
