‘This Is Us’ star Justin Hartley casted in ‘Bad Moms’ sequel

Get ready to see a whole lot more of Justin Hartley.

Best known for portraying the lovable Kevin Pearson on NBC’s breakout series This Is Us , the rising actor will join Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn on the big screen for a Bad Moms follow-up film.

The second installment, A Bad Moms Christmas focuses once again on the original trio as they lean on one another to get through the stressful holiday season, especially with each of their mothers paying them an unwanted visit.

Hartley is playing the role of Ty Swindle, an attractive firefighter by day who lives life as an erotic dance when the sun goes down. Ty shares an instant connection with Hahn’s character Carla after an unforgettable waxing appointment.

“Excited to join this talented and hilarious cast!” the 40-year-old shared on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

The upcoming film will be directed and written by Scott Moore and Jon Lucas, the same pair responsible for working on the 2016 comedy.

A Bad Moms Christmas is slated to hit US theaters on November 3.
