Justin Scott Hartley (born January 29, 1977[1]) is an American actor. He is known for his television roles that include Fox Crane on the NBC daytime soap opera Passions (2002–2006), Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on The CW's superhero drama series Smallville (2006–2011), and Adam Newman on the CBS daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless (2014–2016) which earned him an Emmy nomination. Hartley appeared in the recurring role of Patrick Osbourne in the third season of the television series Revenge. Since 2016, he has starred in the NBC drama series This Is Us.

Early 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][when?]


Justin Hartley portrayed Fox Crane on the NBC daytime soap opera Passions from 2002[3] to 2006.[4] 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., 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 landed the lead role of Tim opposite Anna Camp in the ABC comedy pilot Damaged Goods, but the show was never picked up to series.[7] In March 2014, he was cast in a recurring role in the second season of the ABC drama series Mistresses as plastic surgeon Scott Thompson, a love interest for Josslyn Carver (Jes Macallan).[8] In November, he took over the role of Adam Newman on the CBS daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless, and played the role until September 2016.[9] [10] In 2016, it was announced that Hartley had been cast in a series regular role on the NBC drama series This Is Us.[11]

Personal life[edit]

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, and on May 1, 2004, they married in a small ceremony. On July 3, 2004, Korman gave birth to their daughter. 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 asking for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.[12] In 2014, he began dating actress Chrishell Stause[13] and in July 2016, they announced their engagement.[14] They were married on October 28, 2017.[15]

Hartley resides in Valley Glen, Los Angeles.[16]
