CW Hottie Justin Hartley to Appear on ‘Revenge’

Justin Hartley

Viewers of Revenge learned during the show’s second season that Hampton queen Victoria Grayson (series lead Madeleine Stowe) had a baby boy while still in her teens that she gave away. Much speculation has been made since that revelation about who would play her long lost son Patrick. Well, that wait is now over.

Thanks to a report at E! Online, we now know that CW hottie Justin Hartley has been cast in the role. TV viewers will recognize Hartley from his role of Oliver Queen on the latter seasons of ‘Smallville’ as well as his lead role in the short-lived medical dramedy ‘Emily Owens, M.D.

As ‘Revenge’ watchers will recall, at the end of season two Patrick showed up at the front door of the Grayson mansion, but the viewers did not see his face, but his appearance “shocked Victoria enough to make her drop her glass, shattering it on the floor”. This will, assuredly, not be the last of the “shockwaves” that his surprise visit to the Hamptons will cause.

Hartley will appear in a multi-episode arc and hopefully the viewers will learn much more about him than what little was revealed so far: that Victoria, at only age 16, gave him up “to a nun when he was only six months old so that she could attend art school in Paris”.

The third season of ‘Revenge’ has not been given an official start date by ABC yet, but it will return to the primetime line-up sometime this fall.
