Justin Scott Hartley (born January 29, 1977)[1] is an American actor, known for his roles as Fox Crane in the NBC daytime soap opera Passions (2002–2006) and Green Arrow in The CW's superhero series Smallville (2006–2011). Hartley also starred in the short-lived CW comedy-drama Emily Owens, M.D. in 2012, before landing recurring roles in the ABC primetime soap operas Revenge and Mistresses.

Personal life[edit]

Hartley was born in Knoxville, Illinois, and was raised in Orland Park, Illinois, with his brother Nathan, and sisters Megan and Gabriela. After graduating from Carl Sandburg High School, he attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale and University of Illinois at Chicago where he majored in history and theater.[2] In 2003, Hartley began dating his Passions co-star Lindsay Korman (who played Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald). After six months, the two became engaged on November 13, 2003. They married in a small ceremony on May 1, 2004. On July 3, 2004, Lindsay gave birth to their daughter Isabella Justice. On May 6, 2012, it was announced that Lindsay filed for divorce after eight years of marriage in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences" and is asking for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.[3] In 2014, he began dating Days of Our Lives star Chrishell Stause.[4]

Career[edit]

Hartley portrayed character Fox Crane on the daytime drama Passions from December 17, 2002, to February 10, 2006. In 2006, Hartley played the starring role as Aquaman in a television pilot for The CW titled Aquaman (or Mercy Reef), but it was not picked up as a series. Hartley did a seven-episode run as billionaire Oliver Queen on the CW series Smallville later that year. In 2008, he returned to Smallville as a regular cast member, following the departure of Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum.[5] Hartley also co-wrote the 2010 episode "Sacrifice" and directed the 2011 episode "Dominion". In 2008, he starred as Tom in the film Red Canyon, filmed in the badlands of Utah.[6]

After Smallville, Hartley starred opposite Mamie Gummer in The CW comedy-drama Emily Owens, M.D.. He also guest-starred on Chuck, Castle, and Hart of Dixie, and from 2013 to 2014, he had a recurring role as Victoria Grayson's (Madeleine Stowe) illegitimate son, Patrick Osbourne, on the ABC primetime soap opera Revenge. In February 2014, Hartley landed the lead role of Tim opposite Anna Camp in the ABC comedy pilot Damaged Goods,[7] and in March, he was cast in the second season of the ABC drama series Mistresses as plastic surgeon Scott, a new love interest for Joss (Jes Macallan).[8]
