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 Oliver Queen 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 dramas Revenge and Mistresses. On August 19, 2014 it was announced that Hartley would take over the role of Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless succeeding Michael Muhney. Hartley first appeared on November 5, 2014.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Hartley was born in Knoxville, Illinois, and was raised in Orland Park, Illinois. He is one of four children with a brother Nathan and two 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.[3] 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", asking for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.[4] In 2014, he began dating Days of Our Lives star Chrishell Stause.[5]


Hartley co-starred as Fox Crane on the daytime drama Passions from December 17, 2002, to February 10, 2006. In 2006, Hartley starred in the title role in The CW pilot titled Aquaman (or Mercy Reef), but it was passed by the network. Hartley had a recurring seven-episode arc as billionaire Oliver Queen on the CW drama Smallville later that year. In 2008, he returned to Smallville where he was added to the main cast, following the departures of Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum.[6] 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.[7]

After Smallville, Hartley co-starred opposite Mamie Gummer in The CW medical comedy-drama Emily Owens, M.D., but the show was cancelled after one season. 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 signed on to co-star as Tim opposite Anna Camp in the ABC comedy pilot Damaged Goods, but it was never picked up.[8] In March 2014, he was cast in the second season of the ABC mystery drama Mistresses as Scott, a plastic surgeon and a new love interest of Joss (Jes Macallan).[9]
