This Is Us Spoilers – Justin Hartley Reflects On Kevin Pearson’s ‘Guitar Man’
For the past five seasons, Justin Hartley has sought to show the evolution of his character Kevin on This Is Us. And recently, Justin got an opportunity to portray Kevin’s challenges parenting babies in season six’s “The Guitar Man” episode. (As long-time fans know, This Is Us has developed a tradition of devoting one episode every season to one of the Big 3 characters.)
Talking with Variety, Justin reflected on what viewers should take away from Kevin’s journey on the most recent episode. But he also offered a look into the future. In the wake of Hartley’s episode, his co-stars Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown will star in their own episodes as, respectively, Kate Pearson and Randall Pearson. How will their evolution add missing puzzle pieces to Kevin’s evolution?
Hartley cleverly teased Kevin’s future with Cassidy (Jennifer Morrison) without spilling too many spoilers. And he also hinted at Kevin’s other love interests. “Don’t give up on anybody!” urged Justin. “But what I will say is that we will have an answer for you. It will be answered, we won’t leave you hanging. And it’s very satisfying. It might not be what you want — it might be what you want, it might not be what you want. But it will be satisfying, for sure.”
This Is Us Updates – What Awaits Kevin, Kate, And Randall’s Big 3?
For Kevin, Kate, and Randall (also known as the Big 3), balancing their sibling love with separate romances has turned into an ongoing challenge. And Justin Hartley admitted that all three actors feel that pressure. “It’s a lot of pressure because it’s a hit show, everybody loves it, the show is kind of perfect,” he pointed out. “But I think we all did a really great job.”
For instance, Hartley praised Sterling K. Brown for his portrayal of Randall. Because This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman has offered the actors the opportunity to direct, Justin took care directing Sterling. But Hartley avoided “reinventing the way Sterling plays the character.”
And Justin also gushed about Brown’s ability to work with the director. “I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and he’s so gracious and listens to every note you might have,” shared Hartley. “And he comes with his own ideas, and he’s a truly gifted artist and it’s a pleasure to work with him.”
