NBC’s This Is Us hit us — and so many others — hard from the get go. The smash fall series weaselled its way into our hearts to, well, never leave. That finale though….right???
For those new here, one of the show’s leading characters, Kevin (A.K.A The Manny), is one of many intricate pieces that tell the story of a connected family packed with stories that will make you feel every emotion in the book.We chalk up the impact of this particularly complex character to the actor that brings Kevin to life, Justin Hartley.
Justin Hartley’s acting chops — from the dramatic to the comedic — shine in the exceptionally well crafted writing that drives the quickly sucessful show. Although, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Justin. We’ve seen in him in Smallville as Oliver Queen — yes, that Oliver Queen, pre Arrow times — and on soap operas like the legendary Young And The Restless, and as a welcome mysterious addition to Revenge’s third season.
Yeah, this isn’t Justin Hartley’s first time — it just seems like a lot of the world is tuning in this time around. But spoiler, he’s always been the best. His goofy nature, infectious smile and knack for stealing every scene has him high on our ever growing list of favourites.
In these moments, Justin Hartley reminded us just how charming he is — because how could we ever forget?
When he did push ups with his This Is Us Cast
Well this is true friendship if we’ve ever seen it
When he was dark and mysterious as Patrick on Revenge
And brought serious heat to the show
Every single time he has a heartwarming scene with his TV sister Chrissy Metz
So basically all the time
And when they failed to remember their family chant
So basically every time he’s adorable with his co-stars
Whenever he wear glasses
There’s also that bod
When he was a soap opera heartthrob
Whenever he rocks a beanie
Every time he blesses our screen with his acting
