Justin Hartley Cast on CW Medical Pilot

at . Comments

He won't be starring on The Green Arrow, but Justin Hartley is sticking around The CW.

The former Smallville actor has landed the lead on First Cut, a medical drama that focuses on a female doctor's first year of residency. Hartley will come on board the series as Will, a popular surgical intern on staff.

Hartley will receive medical experience on the network prior to shooting the pilot: he guest stars this spring as a love interest for Dr. Zoe Hart on Hart of Dixie.

Completely agree with @teacher34 Just to add.. the decisions made by the writers/exec producers of HOD are way too predictable for all viewers to stay watching. The Wade/Zoe relationship was unexpected and could actually keep us entertained but from here we've just seen the typical love triangle storyline (made popular by CW!) and now the typical process of elimination ...until she finally notices Wade. It's starting to turn into one of those shows where you could tune out for a season and somebody would be able to catch you up in 5 mins.


Love Justin Hartley hope this show gets picked up but if not I hope he comes back to HOD.


I watched him on Passions (worst.soap.ever) and think he could be a great addition, but I just don't understand why he has to be a love interest for Zoe. She hasn't been in Bluebell long and loves George, has something with Wade, and dated Juddson. The only way I will like this if he is George's friend that falls for Zoe and it makes George realize his feelings for her. I ship George, but find this just to be another obstacle for her and Wade. I mean they are both single and clearly have some feelings for each other so they have to keep throwing in more men.


HE should be given a recurring role in HoD if his series doesn't get picked up...


he has that bad boy look! We will see if he can pull it of to lead the show!!?


Good casting so far.
