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! (Aka, “Felix and Brad” of GH….)

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!

can I have that video please

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.

Revenge is becoming more like gay porn…

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.
