‘Emily Owens’ star Justin Hartley lands major ‘Revenge’ role

When we last left Revenge’s Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), she was opening the door to find her long lost son Patrick standing on her doorstep. Today we learned that new role has gone to Emily Owens, M.D. star Justin Hartley.

According to E!News, which first reported the casting, Hartley will first appear in the season premiere and has signed on for multiple episodes.

Victoria gave birth to Patrick when she was a teenager and then gave him away to a nun. While she put on an act for her loved ones that she was sorry she never got to know her son, viewers know the truth: Patrick came looking for her and she paid him $5 million to go away. Clearly that wasn’t enough…

In addition to Emily Owens, M.D., Hartley is best known for his roles as Smallville’s Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and as the original Fox Crane on Passions. His other credits include Chuck, Castle and Hart of Dixie.

Fans can catch him next on ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey on Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Revenge returns to Sundays on ABC this fall.
