Justin Hartley (‘This is Us’): ‘We’re in heaven on this show as actors’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“You want this at least one time in your career, where you get a storyline, or a scene even, where you can go to that place and sink your teeth in and hopefully deliver,” reveals Justin Hartley about his character’s journey over the second season of NBC’s “This is Us.”

This season Hartley’s character Kevin Pearson struggled with substance abuse, depression and heartbreaking loss, culminating in the eighth episode of the season where Kevin hits rock bottom. As the actor explains in our exclusive video interview (watch above), he felt privileged to bring Kevin’s story arc to life, admitting that “we’re in heaven on this show as actors.”

'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested for Her Alleged Role In the Notorious Sex Cult, Nxivm

Actress Allison Mack — best known for playing Clark Kent's friend Chloe Sullivan on the TV show Smallville — has been arrested for her role in the alleged sex cult, Nxivm. The Daily News reported that the 35-year-old was a "recruiter" that not only lured innocent women in, but also required the slaves to engage in sexual acts with the group's leader, Keith Raniere. She also allegedly gave Raniere naked photos of the slaves. Allison — who reportedly ranked right below Raniere in the cult's hierarchy — last made headlines after she was seen chasing Raniere as cops arrested him in Mexico. The group, which was founded by Raniere, was first exposed in a New York Times feature. Back then, Frank Parlato, a former spokesman for Nxivm, claimed in his blog that Allison was second in command, which turned out to be true. In fact, he stated that she was running a sorority

‘This Is Us’: Will the entire Pearson family of five get Emmy nominations? [Poll]

‘This Is Us’: Will the entire Pearson family of five get Emmy nominations? [Poll]
This Is Us” received seven acting Emmy nominations last year, three of which were for members of the immediate Pearson clan of five: Chrissy Metz, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, the latter of whom won Best Drama Actor. Only matriarch Mandy Moore and No. 1 of the Big Three Justin Hartley were overlooked. But can the whole family get in this year? The whole cast did win the SAG drama ensemble award.

Per our odds, Brown and Ventimiglia are the safest bets in Best Drama Actor, which would make them the first co-stars to nab back-to-back mentions in the category in 19 years. Brown, who swept the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and SAG Award in January, is predicted to win, with Ventimiglia, a surprise nominee last year, sitting in second place. Season 2 finally revealed how Jack (Ventimiglia) died, which gives Ventimiglia even more heat.

Kevin Costner to Voice the Dog in 'The Art of Racing in the Rain' (Exclusive)
Kevin Costner is in talks to play man's best friend in The Art of Racing in the Rain.

If the deal makes, the actor would voice the dog that is central to the story in the Fox 2000's adaptation of Garth Stein's bestselling novel.

The project focuses on a family dog named Enzo who evaluates his life through the lessons learned by his human owner, a professional race-car driver named Denny Swift, who will be played by This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia.

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years
This Is Us” pulled off a surprise last year when both Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia made the Best Drama Actor Emmy lineup. They were just the fifth pair of co-stars this century to nab nominations. None of the other four duos accomplished it again — one pair, “True Detective”’s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in 2014, was a one-and-done deal — so if Brown and Ventimiglia make the cut again, they’d be the first co-stars to go back-to-back in the category since 1999.

The last twosome to score multiple Best Drama Actor nominations together were “NYPD Blue” stars Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits, who went on a five-year streak from 1995 to 1999, with Franz winning three times and Smits going 0-5. Franz won his first Emmy for the cop drama in 1994 against his original partner in crime, David Caruso.

‘Killing Eve’ could be first show to field two Best Drama Actress Emmy nominees in 16 years

‘Killing Eve’ could be first show to field two Best Drama Actress Emmy nominees in 16 years
Killing Eve” could make a killing at the Emmys — specifically in Best Drama Actress. The BBC America series has two leading ladies, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and if they both get shortlisted, the category would feature two co-stars for the first time in 16 years.

The last time a show double-dipped in Best Drama Actress was “Six Feet Under” in 2002, when Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths lost to Allison Janney (“The West Wing”). For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco faced off, with the former winning twice. The ‘90s had two more co-star pairings in 1997 (“ER”’s Julianna Margulies and Sherry Stringfield) and 1994.

Drama actress co-star nominees occurred with regularity in the ‘80s, thanks to “Cagney & Lacey” (Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless) and “L.A. Law” (Susan Dey and Jill Eikenberry). “Dallas” (Barbara Bel Geddes and Linda Gray), “Hill Street Blues” (Barbara Babcock

As with every complicated, loving family, we all have a favorite. Such is true for the Pearson family on This Is Us. My pick would be Randall Pearson, played by Sterling K.

Don't worry: Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), Toby (Chris Sullivan), and Miguel (Jon Huertas) - or as we like to call them, "the other Big Three" - are also on our list.

Fyi, Chrissy Metz Auditioned for 'American Idol' Before Landing Her Breakout Role on 'This Is Us'

If you're a fan of This Is Us, then you know that Chrissy Metz can really sing but did you know that she once auditioned for American Idol? Before landing the role of Kate Pearson, Chrissy tried out for the reality singing competition in 2007 to be respected for her vocal abilities. However, the experience was less-than-amazing for the brunette beauty, who revealed in her memoir This Is Me: Loving the Person You Are Today that she had to push back on producers who wanted her on the show for the wrong reasons. "You know, I get it, they're trying to make stories and they're trying to invest the audience into these characters and I understand the whole scope of everything, especially [since] I was a talent agent," she told Entertainment Tonight. "So, I understand what they're doing. And I was like, 'Oh, I can sort of see that and I don't want to be that girl.

Emmy spotlight: Justin Hartley (‘This Is Us’) deserves a nomination after watching the rest of the Pearson clan get recognition

Emmy spotlight: Justin Hartley (‘This Is Us’) deserves a nomination after watching the rest of the Pearson clan get recognition
Will Justin Hartley earn an Emmy nomination for his heartbreaking work on “This is Us”? He plays Kevin Pearson, who in season one wanted to be respected as a serious actor and not just the star of his shallow sitcom “The Manny.” But during the show’s second season his storyline dealt with his descent into alcohol and drug addiction and should finally earn him some individual awards recognition after the entire rest of his on-screen family have been singled out for their performances.

Hartley’s best showcase of the season was the November 14 episode “Number One.” After being injured on the set of his upcoming movie Kevin wallows in self-pity. This is intercut with flashbacks detailing how his football career ended when he was injured as a teenager. Back in the present he returns to his high school to receive an award, trying and failing to pretend that everything is okay,

Emmys: ‘This Is Us’ could be first broadcast Best Drama Series winner in 12 years

Emmys: ‘This Is Us’ could be first broadcast Best Drama Series winner in 12 years
Last year, “This Is Us” became the first broadcast Best Drama Series nominee in six years. It lost to “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but the NBC tearjerker could go a step further this time around and become the first broadcast winner in a dozen years.

The last broadcast show to win Best Drama Series was Fox’s “24” in 2006. Since then, basic and premium cable and now streaming have monopolized the category. The drought is even longer for NBC itself: Its last win was in 2003, when “The West Wing” scooped up its fourth consecutive and final drama prize.

These Adorable Jack and Rebecca Moments From 'This Is Us' Will Make You Wish You Had Your Own Jack

It's no secret that Jack Pearson — the patriarchal character on NBC's hit show This Is Us — is just slightly short of perfect. Between the way he raised his children to the compassion he had for others, there is a lot one can swoon over. But what many fans admire the most about Jack is the undying love he had for his wife, Rebecca Pearson. These two have been #relationshipgoals since the pilot episode, prompting fans on Twitter to want a "Jack" in their own life. "Jack Pearson is the kind of man I wanna marry #ThisIsUs," one person tweeted. Another shared, "Jack Pearson is the man, husband, and father every girl deserves. Jack Pearson speaks... cue the tears #ThisIsUs." And while finding someone exactly like him might be difficult since Jack somehow always knew what to say, his love for Rebecca still had viewers falling head over heels for them scene after scene.

‘This Is Us’ Season Finale Beats ‘The Walking Dead’ Thanks To Zombie Jack — Ratings Watch
Jack lives! Well, no, not really. He’s about as alive as Carl on “The Walking Dead” at this point. But the Season 2 finale of NBC smash “This Is Us,” titled “The Wedding,” was a ratings bonanza, and featured an imaginary flash-forward (revealed to be a recurring Kate dream) in which Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) was still alive and renewing his wedding vows with Rebecca (Mandy Moore).

The episode was ultimately about the wedding of Kate (Chrissy Metz) to Toby (Chris Sullivan) and the ensuing drama. But with so much going on, viewers flocked to the finale, which was the No. 1 program among adults 18-49 (4.4 rating) for the week ending March 18, when three days’ worth of DVR and VOD time shifting is included. That means it jumped ahead of juggernaut “The Walking Dead,” which was close behind at No. 2.

NBC’s “Rise” led the week’s premieres (1.7 rating), followed by CBS

Chrissy Metz Has Nothing but Love for Her Stepfather Who Used to Make Fun of Her Weight

While fans might know Chrissy Metz for her role as Kate Pearson on the television show This Is Us, she had a much darker childhood in real life than her on-screen story. The 37-year-old actress opened up in her new memoir titled, This Is Me, about her stepfather — who she called Trigger — and the abuse he put her through because of how much she weighed. "My mom married Trigger at the courthouse. Soon she was pregnant again, with another girl, Abigail. Trigger loved his two biological children... Me, not so much. My mother was always at work, so she didn’t see how he treated me," she wrote. A post shared by Chrissy Metz (@chrissymetz) on Sep 25, 2017 at 2:47pm Pdt Chrissy revealed that it was her body that "seemed to offend him" and literally had to sneak food into the bathroom when she wanted to eat in fear that
