Fans of ABC’s “Revenge” might recall that the primetime soap ended on several cliffhangers, one of which was Victoria Grayson (Madeline Stowe) coming face to face with her forgotten son, Patrick. While we didn’t get to see his face, there’s a perfectly good reason why. The soap only just cast the actor to take on the role! On Friday, July 12, it was announced that Justin Hartley (“Passions,” “Arrow”, “Emily Owens M.D.,” “Smallville”) would portray the character that could be the saving grace Victoria needs in light of some family controversies and murders, or he could be the devil ready to get his own revenge on mommy dearest.
“Passions’” alum Justin Hartley has done a lot of work since he left his role as Fox Crane in 2006, including a leading role as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in “Smallville,” as well as a role as Will Collins in “Emily Owens M.D.” And now comes word of the actor’s next chapter: He’ll be playing the boyfriend of Melissa Joan Hart’s character, Mel, in ABC Family’s “Melissa & Joey!”
A rep for the show confirms that Hartley will be making an appearance in the upcoming season of the sitcom as Noah, Mel’s new boyfriend who has to temporarily move in with her when his apartment floods. The sped-up cohabitation definitely spells trouble for the pair, especially since Joey Lawrence’s Joe is always hanging around, too!
Look for the episode to air later this summer.
