Justin Hartley Talks ‘This Is Us’, Status With Y&R & His Engagement To Chrishell Stause!

Tuesday at the Television Critic’s Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour, NBC’s This Is Us was unveiled to the media with a panel featuring its creator Dan Fogelman, producers,  and the ensemble cast which features The Young and the Restless, Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) in the pivotal role of Kevin – a professional actor.  Fogelman described the series “like a dramedy version of Lost, where you have to understand how everyone’s connected and then explore these people as we move forward.”

Following the panel, Hartley spoke to the press and below are some of the highlights regarding his status with Y&R, while filming This Is Us, his recent engagement to actress Chrishell Stause (Bethany, Y&R), and the buzz on his new primetime series that already features the most watched trailer in facebook  history for a new show.

Justin on working on This Is Us and how it might effect filming Y&R:  “I’m going to have to do this for a little bit here.  There’s a definitely a break (at Y&R).  I don’t know if I can (do both shows).  I try to stay out of that, and gladly don’t wear that hat.   I’m on all three networks … for the moment.    Mistresses is on tonight.  I think if I remember correctly, when I talked to CBS about doing Y&R; they agreed to let me do Mistresses.  When this came down the pike, my friend Michael Rady gave me the script and said, ‘You’ve got to read this thing.’   I knew I had to do it.  I knew I needed to do everything I could possibly do to try to get this part.  This show is so special.   The episodes I’ve read are just getting better, if that’s possible. I ’m in love with it so I knew I had to do it.”

Justin on if there are wedding bells immediately in his and fiancee’s Chrishell Stause future, and what happened when he popped the question: “We don’t have a (wedding) date.  It just happened, but it will be sometime in the next 10 to 12 years. (Laughs), but it will be coming up in a year or so, probably.  I proposed on one knee like you’re supposed to.  It was my right knee, and I was lucky enough to have her say, ‘yes’.   We have sort of an inside ‘thing’ in our relationship that I sort of circled back to, and I think she got a kick out of that.  Chrishell and I are fortunate enough because as actors we have a lot of downtime, sometimes.  So, you do a lot of traveling, but I thought “let’s do this where we live.’  It was perfect. ”

Justin on working with his major This Is Us scene partner  Chrissy Metz (Kate) and the relationship between Kevin and Kate.  “I got a wonderful opportunity to read with her.  I think it was a sort of a whirlwind, but I think at that point I had the job.  It’s kind of nice when you are in that situation, because usually you are the one vying for the job and it’s all about that.  But when you are sitting there knowing you have the job, you can sort of watch the other actor in person and I thought, ‘Wow! This girl is fantastic.  I hope they make the right decisions.’  They have just been amazing with the casting.  Every single thing they have done with the show is top-notch, and the network has been fantastic, and the studio has been wonderful.  I am curious to see what they do with the Kevin and Kate’s relationship. I know a few things and they are wonderful, but something’s got to give, so we shall see.”

Justin on working with guest stars Katey Segal (Sons of Anarchy) and Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) who play a high-powered agent and a television network president, respectively, and who are both involved in Kevin’s career following his meltdown incident in the pilot episode:  “I have not worked with Brad yet, but I believe that is coming up at the end of this week. Katey is fantastic.  She’s like me.  She likes to run things over and over again.  I just don’t think you can run the lines or a scene too many times.  I’m a big fan of that.  Every take with her was a little bit different.  She goes off on her own little rant to me, and every time was a little bit different and she is such a pro.  It’s such an editing nightmare when you have to pick one take when there are so many good ones. So, I would not want to be in that room, but what a great experience.  I have worked with people (on the soaps and other shows) who have been doing their jobs for a long, long time.  It’s always interesting to see those people who still have that enthusiasm, and she’s one of them. ”

Justin on the sensation of the trailer of This Is Us:  “I don’t know what 90 million views looks like, but that’s very humbling.  Everything about that trailer is perfect.  The pride I take it in it is that I can honestly tell people the show is better than the trailer.

Justin on how at the screening there were tears in the audience:  “Yeah, there were tears.  People cry at the trailer.  There are so many things this show touches on life wise; a relationship, or work, or losing a child or a parent, not feeling wanted, or feeling guilty about something, or feeling like you missed an opportunity. We’ve all gone through that stuff, and I just love the fact that every single one of us has had different life experiences obviously and we are all different sexes, religions, who knows.  There is something for all of you in This Is Us.  I’m not kidding. ”

Justin on if Kevin’s on set meltdown scene was inspired by anyone or an incident in his real-life career:  “I love what I have chosen to do as a career.  I’ve been lucky enough to fool many different people in to hiring me. (Laughs)  But I do take it seriously and it’s a lot of fun, but there are times when you run up against someone who wants to just finish something quickly, or doesn’t see it your way ,and maybe you butt heads.  It’s part of the creative process, but in real life I have never done anything close to that.  It was a bit cathartic though. (Laughs)”

Justin on what the weekly production and work schedule is for him on This Is Us:  “We do 8 production days, and I will work on average 4 of those days. We have such a big ensemble cast which is nice as well.”

So, are you hoping that Justin will appear on This Is Us and Y&R? Are you looking forward to his leading role on the new NBC primetime series? What did you think about Justin’s proposal to his lady love Chrishell Stause? Comment below, but first, just in case you have not seen it in previous posts, watch the trailer for the series below.

YES I WANT HIM ON BOTH.

Lisa

There’s no way JH would stay on Y&R permanently. He was going to return to Primetime. The role of Adam Newman will have to be recast or written off.

Wow I just can’t watch this trailer too many times. I love that it’s on Tuesday nights cuz it won’t conflict with anything. What a terrific cast!!!

He will never be Adam to me but wish him nothing but the best don’t watch nighttime tv only watch Netflix but hope it works out for him!

Timmm

MM was Adam period! BUT, Braeden doesnt like him so he will not return! I rarely watch night time TV either. I will give this a whirl though. Justin kind of compares it to LOST. Well, if it gets that freaky, I’m out!

If it is all possible for him and if he feels up to it then I believe Justin should give it his best to do both shows.

ITA! Love Justin and he should do both if he can for the long term.

He is the best part of the show for sure!

Very true. Braeden couldn’t tolerate Muhney’s talent & character overshadowing his tired act that could be done by a wax dummy. The show has suffered ever since Phelps fired Muhney & Miller.

Mary SF

If this show is the hit they think it will be then eventually I cannot see him doing both shows. Adam is a major character and writing around his schedule might be okay in the short term but over time depending how the night time gig goes, they might need to recast the part. But for now, until they know if this new show becomes a hit or flop, he is best to juggle both– plenty of shows are hyped by critics and media as the biggest thing but the ratings just don’t pan out– the YouTube hits aren’t a real measure of success– it could be one person watching the trailer 9 million times, not 9 million people watching it once–so for now it is just a wait and see thing– but I wish him well.

Please don’t leave Y&R!!!! Adam is the best with Victor!!

Donna

I have posted on Justin’s facebook page and on twitter many times that ‘I need my Adam’. Justin literally ‘saved’ the character Adam on Y&R. I have heard ‘the higher ups’ at Y&R really like Justin. Mal Young likes Justin. I really, really, really would love Justin to stay on at Y&R because primetime shows get cancelled all the time. He can do both shows because he will not be in every single scene of every single episode of ‘This Is Us’.

Tara
Tara

That’s not the way they shoot Primetime series. They are much more labor intensive than soaps. Primetime shows take up to 10 days to shoot one episode, while a week worth of soaps is shot in 4 days. JH will not be able to “juggle” both shows as a lead actor. That’s why he’s leaving Y&R, for a better gig and more money. Get over it.

donna
donna

No Where in the Michael Fairman Interview did Justin say “I’M LEAVING Y&R’ Why, because he is on contract! Y&R does not comment on an actors status either. He did say he was going to be doing ‘both’ for a little while. He also said he does not make those decisions! Actors can go from network to network these days whereas years ago they could not. No one knows how popular this primetime show will get and they do get cancelled all the time. Makes no sense to leave a steady paying daytime job for a primetime show that no one knows how long it will last. If I have any further questions, I will ask my very close friend who knows people ‘higher up in the food chain’ than the actors, which I think I just might do.

Frankie
Frankie

LOL, you think you know-it-all. Hilarious. He’s no longer under contract with Y&R or he wouldn’t be doing a Primetime show for NBC. Phelps refused to sign Billy Miller for this same reason. What planet are you on Donna? Hartley is done with Y&R, deal with it. Next.

Donna
Donna

I don’t ‘Know it all’, but Actors CAN DO OTHER SHOWS! Tristan Rodgers and Eileen Davidson to name a couple. Oh, lets not forget Hunter King who plays Summer. Darn it, I forgot one Steve Burton. General Hospital lost him and Tristan because they refused to let them do other projects while under contract. Y&R’s gain General Hospital’s loss! My very close friend answers my questions like this. So, you have a marvelous day Frankie! I know what I know and I’m not going to explain it to people who refuse to be civil to others.

Kristen
Kristen

So true. Justin Hartley is doing Primetime on NBC, not CBS. A competing network isn’t going to let an actor appear on an ongoing basis on another network. BTW, CBS wouldn’t let Billy Miller persue other jobs, so Jill Farren Phelps let him go.

Y&R get ready… he’s outta there!

I just love Justin’s acting on Y & R and Mistresses. He is one of those few actor’s that come on a soap and you just know from the beginning he’s going places.I truly believe in him and as I said a couple of years ago I can see him in Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise. Remember the name Jeremy Renner meant nothing till he was on M.I.#4 now he can pick & choose his movies and that is what I see for Justin Hartley. Congratulation’s on your engagement as well.

J Beer
J Beer

Jeremy Renner was VERY well known before MI4. He was nominated for 2 Academy Awards a few years before MI4 for both The Hurt Locker, an The Town, and was in a ton of films before that too. Just sayin…

Nikki
Nikki

J Beer Thank you for telling me. I did watch those movies but I thought they came after his first MI appearance. However J.H. still makes me think of someone like him who will make it big & pick his own movies.

Dylan

Hmmm…a well written show…character driven…with no need for gun violence, explosions, back from the dead characters, etc, etc, etc…just honest, messy human emotion. Soap writers…WATCH THIS SHOW AND LEARN HOW ITS DONE!!

Timmm
Timmm

He is gone! Justin is a mega talent! Nothing against Y&R but his night time shows will send him off into mega stardom! I like the guy and will watch this.

Y&R? I would keep him in jail and not show him for a while. He wants this anyway. Until they find the perfect recast, I wouldnt dick around like they did with Billy. Billy should have been off screen after Miller left. Dont screw Adam up! I would introduce the new Adam in jail, back to the camera, he turns around, YES it is Nick Stabile who recently did a fabulous job filling in for Tyler Christopher on GH!

j9
j9

OMG! I am so with you on the recast suggestion of Nick S.!! That is, if they have to do so when JH becomes a major star. If GH were smart they would sign Nick S. like yesterday before Y & R comes calling!

Timmm
Timmm

Justin is a key player in the new shows ensemble cast. I dont see how he could do Y&R full time. Adam is a full time character. I hate to see him go but NS would be awesome. He could handle the Mustache!

Celia
Celia

I would agree with you, Timmmy, if Stabile were younger. Remember, Adam is supposed to be younger than his brother, Nick on Y&R.
I adore Nick Stabile, you know that….but, not as Adam, he looks his age, as gorgeous as he is!!

Timmm
Timmm

I knew this would come up! I agree but you know C, we are asked to accept so many different scenarios on Y&R, this wouldnt be the worst! One of THE worst was Marco. I had fun with seeing Peter Bergman loosen up but there is NO way Marco is an exact duplicate of Jack and there is no way no one in his family, especially Phyllis wouldnt know Marco wasnt Jack. UNLESS, they practice Amish sex?

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
LOL, Timmmy. You got me….What is Amish sex? I’m serious. I have no clue how the Amish do it. HaHaHa.
Anyway, I remember we two talking about how could a woman (Phyllis) be soooo intimate with her man and not know the difference? That was dumb, you’re right, albeit Phyllis did notice a change in ‘sexual habits and protocol’……Marco, in the guise of Jack was much friskier.
And, yes, we are to do a double and triple take many times on soaps….including sorased kids. But, I don’t know if I have ever encountered this situation before; where siblings’ ages are ‘out of order’.
Nonetheless, again, you are right. TPTB will do whatever they please, if it suits their purpose.

Celia
Celia

@Rose.
Believe me, Rose, you would have loved Billy Miller as Billy A……No resemblance, in character, to Jason Morgan.
I have said this a million and one times, no matter how rotten Billy Abbott became; we just accepted him, regardless. Jason Thompson’s Billy falls waaaay short of BM’s magnetic and enigmatic representation of the character.
The spoiled brat, whiny, recalcitrant man-child behavior nuBilly is displaying, is not well executed by JT. He is not very charismatic, in my opinion. No sex appeal. Coupled with Gina? Even worse.

SiteAdvocate61
SiteAdvocate61

Is Nick Stabile younger than 39? I remember when Justin and Lindsay took a family leave from Passions when Isabella was born and Nick Stabile was Justin’s temporary replacement.

Celia
Celia

@SiteAdvocate61.
I see your point. Stabile is about seven years older than Hartley. However, personally, I think Justin has a youthful appearance. Not Nick S.
I suppose if Nick were to dye his hair….hmmmm, maybe. Too much of a salt and pepper hue to his hair, as it is.

JLS

Justin is an amazing actor and deserves his prime time show. I wish him all the best. But I hope this will open the door for Michael Muhney to come back to Y&R and take the role of Adam Newman on again.

RBohanna
RBohanna

Micheal is the real Adam Newman, he should come back. Justin is good but not the real Adam

Lisa
Lisa

If Michael Muhney returned to Y&R as Adam Newman, the internet would blow up. The show would see a surge of interest from so many fans that have turned it off. CBS would see a ratings bonanza too.

k/kay
k/kay

You have any idea who this character was??? He was dark he was in his mark JH is pretty but he is not Adam

Celia
Celia

The same could be said for Jason Thompson, Kay. I cannot take much more of his representation of Billy.

Rose
Rose

Celia/k/Kay…Wasn’t watching Y&R when Michael was on. Came on board about the time of the “scandal” so I have no vested interest in him. So I’m okay with Justin. BUT as “boring” and lack lustre as life can be for a GH doctor at times, I way preferred Patrick at GH. Now I’m playing catchup on Billy. But I do know I don’t like how they are writing Billy for Patrick. Don’t like the character very much.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree K but I support Justin as Adam because we have seen the cluster that IS Billy! This Adam’s “Man Marbles” are in Chelsea’s purse! BUT, he is a good actor and it could have been a lot worse!

k/kay
k/kay

I know Timm just mad that Pratt has changed every character no offense to JH he seems like a lovely person not his fault about the writers should not have taken it out on him

Celia
Celia

You are so right, Kay. I love Michael Muhney….not so much ‘his’ Adam, albeit he brought the character to the roof-tops. Michael played Adam like a violin. His exemplar acting could not get any better, in my opinion.
Michael’s Adam was a dangerous, dark, duplicitous, back-stabbing cad. Justin’s Adam is completely different.
Perhaps this Adam is the reborn product whom Michael’s Adam strove to achieve, as he was on that path when he left.

Celia
Celia

Talk about changing a character’s persona, Kay. I don’t even recognize Paul anymore. Why has he been turned into such a cynic? It’s ridiculous….then again, he follows Cricket’s lead.
I suppose as soap watchers, we need to see antagonism between the characters for the sake of drama.

k/kay
k/kay

Hey Celua u have been mean towards JH he can’t help they watered down the character I will back off but MM is nit coming back too much bad blood went down but no we don’t need another recast . I miss the edge and he had a lot of history with Sharon and they never explored that but hey if they are happy with CO their business. But to base a story around a 75 year old who mumbles thrust his lubes bad businee

Celia
Celia

I have no clue what you are implying, Kay. LOL.
I love Justin Hartley. I have since his PASSIONS days. I was giving an analogy. Being mean? I gave my ‘take’ on their individual performances and how excellent they both are, albeit in a different way.
I suppose you misread, dear friend. There is not one word I said about Justin which justifies what you have said to me.
Sorry, I wasn’t more specific. Later.

Still have a hard time having him as Adam. Wish him well maybe Y&R will Bering back MM. Hope hope

Justin Hartley wasn’t planning to stay on Y&R. He got his publicity by following Michael Muhney as Adam Newman and is returning to Primetime. NBC will block any return to a CBS soap.

Annie

I want Justin on both shows of course, hate to lose him as Adam!!!
However, as long as he’s on TV… I’m happy!!
Justin Hartley is truly a gifted actor of the likes I haven’t seen in years!!!!
HE WILL WIN OSCARS MARK MY WORDS!!!!
He’s today’s De Niro in my opinion and De Niro is my all time favorite!!!

Daisy Day
Daisy Day

I can’t imagine anyone else playing Adam. Maybe they can cut back on his schedule and he can stay on Y&R.

Frankie
Frankie

Why would a new show trying to succeed let Hartley do another show on another network? Really people, you don’t have a clue do you?

Celia
Celia

I know Daisy. We all love Justin that much…LOL.
But, it would not make sense to start a new show and then cut back his hours? Especially, if he is the main protagonist.
I think the opposite would hold more substance…..that is, stay on Y&R on limited time.

Timmm
Timmm

Unless he stays in jail and is rarely seen, no, he is done and a new Adam will be needed. I suggest Nick Stabile who recently did a knock out job substituting for Tyler Christopher.

Celia
Celia

That’s a great premise, Timmmy. Just keep Adam in jail for a while. But, the story will lose stamina after a while.

AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS IS US!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M ALREADY HOOKED!!!!!

I’m looking forward to the show. Justin is a great actor and this looks like a good role. I always liked Milo Ventimiglia on GILMORE GIRLS so that’s a plus also. ANYTHING but another reality show! Just out of curiosity, how is a pre-scripted program a reality show anyway?

Frankie
Frankie

Justin Harley’s version of Adam Newman was very superficial and had no inner turmoil that made the character so compelling. He did a good job, but he never reached the levels that Michael Muhney did. Just watching old tapes of Muhney on YouTube still bring chills. If Mal Young were really going to set Y&R back on the path to greatness, then he should get Muhney on the phone and get him back on the show. My Lord, the internet would explode and Y&R would get huge publicity + ratings.

Timmm

Right on Frankie!

Agreed, Frankie. You said it all concisely and perfectly.

Celia

@Donna.
Yes, much went on behind the scenes. But, we were not privy to anything then, nor are we now.
There is something inherently wrong to jump on the band wagon; especially when none of us was there.
This is condemning someone to the guillotine without knowing the facts. It’s the 21st Century, not the Dark Ages.
Michael Muhney is a married man with young children whose lives have been turned upside down. We have no right to say one negative word. I hope he and his family are in a good place. And, I wish he could come back, albeit on shaky grounds. But the prospect of a return is null and void. I think it would be like reaching for the stars.
This sensitive situation is something with which is hard to reconcile. It will happen when two Sundays come together….which is never. Pride does come into play.
I try to respect other people’s private lives; especially when their dirty laundry is publicly aired. Not fair.

Timmm
Timmm

And I love Eric Braeden but if he is the one who stands in Muhney’s way, fire him and take his little dog Toto [Summer] with him!

Too funny, but true, Timmmbo!!!!

Everybody needs to get past MM I do not know what went down but several actors lost my respect you don’t kiss and tell as they say but they did the escalated a internet gossip and hurt both parties in the process. Maybe we need to shelve the character for a long while I am truly sick of Adam and Chelesea the repeat conversations are tiresome. We get it your friends off screen who gives a bloody hell

If JH leaves, could we PLEASE hire Michael Muhney back as Adam? He was superb in the role.

Not into the “This Is Us” kind of stories, but nice to see Justin has options. But between a choice of sitting in jail all day, kissing Chelsea a lot, and arguing with Victor it doesn’t seem a big decision to me about which show has more potential for him.

Rebecca1

Hey Rose…his new show has a great cast including Milo Vemtimiglia…another good actor and alumni of one of my all-time favorite shows for charm and wit alone, Gilmore Girls. Sooooo loved that quaint little town and its characters.

If Justin Hartley is leaving the role of Adam, and I think this could all be rumors and not fact but just in case, here are the four people I’ll accept in the role.
Michael Muhney

Aiden Turner.

Again, love Trevor, Softjohn….but, he looks too old for the role. I think Aiden could work….needs to lose the Brit accent, though….LOL.

Not a fan of AT, too dark like the new Ridge on B & B. JH is perfect, manly but really good looking and great actor, IMO. I liked MM ok until the story broke about sexual harassment. Not saying it is true or not but it came from somewhere.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Glad to hear there is more Arturo in Genoa City and Jason is on contract at the top-rated daytime drama series? Comment below.

GH’s Billy Miller Lands Role In Apple’s Upcoming Thriller Series, ARE YOU SLEEPING

Exciting casting news for mutli-Daytime Emmy winner, Billy Miller (Drew, General Hospital).  Miller has been cast in the upcoming drama series thriller, Are you Sleeping to be on Apple’s streaming platform.

Are you Sleeping stars Oscar winner Octavia Spencer along with Lizzy Caplan, and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) with another Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon serving as one of the series executive producers with the project through her production company, Hello Sunshine.

According to Deadline: Are You Sleeping, is based on the true-crime novel by Kathleen Barber,and provides a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.
