When you’re hot, you’re hot!  The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) who has turned in one riveting performance after another on the number one soap opera, just landed a key role in an upcoming drama pilot for NBC that sounds quite intriguing.

According to Deadline, Harley along with Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes),  Sterling Brown, and Ron Cephas Jones (Mr. Robot) are the first actors to be cast in the new pilot from Dan Fogelman.  The untitled dramedy is made up of a unique ensemble of characters all born on the same day.

Hartley will play the role of  Kevin, a handsome and successful television actor with an underlining boredom in his ultimate bachelor life.

So, what do you think of Justn’s new role?  Sound like a perfect fit? At present time, Justin shooting the pilot will not affect his role on Y&R.

Maybe he can continue to do both but maybe the rumor is right…JT-GHs Patrick will become the new Adam but itll be a miscast if true!

The rumor is JT is wanted for the role of Billy not Adam. If JH did actually re-sign for 2 more years. I assume he would of gotten a lot outs to do outside projects. Kind of like what Billy Miller wanted and was denied. If it does go to series be interesting to see what happens. I wouldn’t mind a return of MM. He is still my favorite Adam.

You could be right, Apple, albeit I think Jason T is all wrong for the role of Billy. I said this before: I theorized that Gabe is really alive….enter Jason T with a face-change.

I agree!!! Justin is great but would be great to see MM again in a great acting role! He is missed!

Yeah, Jimmy. It sounds like he is. I got scared there for a minute. I thought he’d be leaving…whew, that was close.

I think the rumor about JT is that he is being cast as Billy Abbott. I hope Justin is allowed to do both … Given that the reason Billy Miller left Y&R was because the powers that be would not allow him to do both and it obviously was a huge mistake. Let’s hope that they learned by their mistake.

Billy Miller, I do not think, wanted to do a dual role. I believe, he wanted to pursue other projects while on Y&R.

I think Jason Thompson would be a great recast for Adam. Not that Justin Hartley isn’t doing a terrific job. I’d hate to see Justin go. But, if he wants to move on with his in career, so be it and good luck to him. Some people have suggested Jason as a recast for Billy. I feel that would be a mistake. I don’t think Jason is right for Billy.

I truly – wish – I could have seen; Jason Thompson… when he debuted on GH pre; Robin when I read how dastardly flirtatious man on his own… LOL made the ladies swoon; men envied; could this be where Y&R is coming from… that Jason Thompson… could be the man… again ! that fans of him… have wanted all along for his character after Robin left ? i sure would have liked seeing his strong masculine side… that I missed out on… because AMC was my choice so… if he does go to Y&R… as Billy… I think he has… Read more »

I sure hope so, we got lucky with this recast, very few turn out to be THE ONE. Look at Kyle and Billy, they can’t find a good Kyle to save themselves, and I doubt they’ll ever find anyone to take Billy Miller’s place.
I understand Justin wanting to branch out for his career, that’s what it’s all about, but I sure will miss him if he goes, he’s the best.

Timmm

I disagree Jim. Jason Thompson would be closer to Michael Muhney’s Adam than Justin. However, Jason isnt as dark as Adam is. Maybe they soften him? Jason is a good actor who can hold his own so I wouldnt panic if he were the new Adam. Much better than if he were casted as Billy.

CeeCee

Hmmmm, Timmm. It would certainly be interesting to see Jason Thompson as a blonde.

No, no. He is staying on as Adam. He has signed on for a two year contract, and hopefully he will stay longer then that as well

Good for Justin..
Primetime is the ticket out and up..
strange CBS would let JH roam to NBC , but Sony would it seems.

((There has been soap casting rumors, one was, JH was leaving Y&R, but that does not seem as fact..
One rumor I hope is fact;
Michael Muhney to GH ..

su, it’s possible this IS a Sony pilot. They are very loyal to their “family.” They have kept Wesley Snipes working all these years through his legal troubles by giving him work at Screen Gems (I know I used to work there) and now he has his own show, THE PLAYER, on NBC Thursdays. They did the same with Nicolas Cage and Steven Segal.

Doing a pilot and having that pilot picked up and put on the air are two different things. However it does make me nervous when I hear of soap actors doing pilots because it usually means they are not fully committed to daytime. Whether they want to take their careers to the next level or worry daytime is dying they always have one foot out the door. The reasons actors like Susan Lucci, Jeanne Cooper and the like are so beloved by soap fans is because they stayed with daytime because they wanted to not because they felt they had… Read more »

Yes, Susan Lucci STAYED, but she had many, many side jobs. I recall many made-for-TV movies. Hopefully IF and it is a big IF, Justin’s pilot is brought to series, that he will be allowed to do both.

He’s always belonged in primetime. Loved him on Mistresses, and they should have kept his character and Joss together. Wishing him lots of luck with the new show. I’ll be watching.

Justin Hartley wasn’t going to stay on Y&R for an extended number of years. He came from Primetime and he was destined to return. If NBC picks up the show, say so long to nuAdam. Will Phelps recast Jason Thompson in that role? Who will be the nunuBilly now that Burgess Jenkins is leaving? Looks like Y&R is back to 2014 when Miller & Muhney left.

Jules
Guest

Before everyone starts the big brou-haha that he’s leaving, keep in mind:

Being hired for a pilot ≠ the show will be picked up and Justin will leave Y&R.

You need to wait until after the new year before we know what this all means.

Just saying….

Good job Justin. You cannot hold talent down! I knew this would happen. He has prime time exposure so this isnt shocking. I say the same for Billy Miller over at GH. Just when we get use to Jason being back Billy Miller will be long gone! You cannot hold talent down!

CONGRATULATIONS TO A GREAT ACTOR…HE IS ADAM NEWMAN….ONLY PERSON I CAN COME UP WITH AS A RECAST IS DANIEL COSGROVE….IF NOT…PLEASE PLAY BOTH ROLES….

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

Nice !

Daniel Cosgrove played the darker masculine tough misguided ? man… easily

it was apparent, when he had scenes with Clyde, Andre, and even Bo

if he stops the smirks ??? he played embarrassed and came off as a little unsure of himself…as well he should… with aplomb!

which just shows… if DC acted… sure of himself… and put his reel first… then we’d have no choice but to dance on his own terms

Daniel Cosgrove made a very likeable character (Aiden) that reels all the passion needed for Adam

he’s worth any consideration… he displayed a lot of emotion

This does not surprise me at all. Justin can act circles around a lot of his fellow actors. This is hardly the end of the jobs for this guy. I would bet down the road he hits movies at the theater,I can see him act with the best of them. Really can’t you see him in MI movies with T. Cruise. I’ll tell you if Jeremy Renner ever leaves T.Cruise wouldn’t be stuck for a replacement. I guess the selfish side of me wants him to stay as Adam because he’s so great at it but the nice side of… Read more »

Wow! Don’t know any of this. His appeal was so evident; it just wasn’t clear to me about the acting. His hand and body movement were gentle but the speech patterns so rapid. I don’t want him to leave but guess it seemed too many people were looking at the chemistry. However, that is probably what it is all about.

Love Justin so I’d check out a prime time he’s cast in. Disappointed though to see Milo Ventimiglia is also cast….Actually I love Milo too…but through this info I just found out his show The Whispers was canceled. Really liked that show and it left on a cliffhanger. Thus the beauty of soaps…or what they used to be…they were a constant…loyal, in your home every day, never the threat of disappearing after you got emotionally invested… Sigh…

Two great actors…here’s hoping it’s a good show with longevity!

I love Justin Hartley and have watched him on Mistresses, Smallville and Revenge. He is a great actor and handsome to boot. I was a huge MM fan and when he was let go I gave up watching Y&R until I heard that Justin was going to be in the role. I love him with Chelsea (MCE) and to me their chemistry is off the charts. I have been disappointed in the writing for Y&R and don’t like the fact that both JFP and Pratt give roles to their favorites which come mostly from GH and some other shows where… Read more »

I hope Michael M goes to another soap, never to return to YR as long as Eric B is there..Eric B runs YR, that’s why Sharon Case is thrown under the bus. She has been isolated from the cast. Mr B does not like her since she didn’t want to Be married to Victor..can you blame her.. Justin H can leave any time, he looks good but so sick of him. Hate Adam and Chelsea. Sage can leave too. The story she is doing now was for Avery. But no , no talent Kelly S. Got it… Ready for YR… Read more »
