‘This Is Us’ Star Justin Hartley Really Wants One of *These* (and Not Just Because Sterling K. Brown Got One)

For This Is Us star Justin Hartley, on-screen sibling rivalry is alive and well—but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The IRL Kevin Pearson told The Hollywood Reporter that he wants his character to get a flash-forward sequence, just like his brother, Randall (Sterling K. Brown). Is that too much to ask? In our humble opinion, no. 

“I think that would be cool just to see where he ends up,” Hartley reasoned. “Like does he have kids? Is he doing well? Is he divorced? Who’s he with? Is he even alive?” Hey, we have the same questions. 

But as it turns out, curiosity isn’t Hartley’s only reason for wanting to see Kevin as an old man. He went on to say, “Personally, as an actor, I’d like to see 60-year-old Kevin, because that means I make it to, like, season four or five.”

Looks as though Hartley and his character are more alike than we thought.
