This Is Us Casts Janet Montgomery as Justin Hartley's 'Intense' Love Interest

Salem‘s Janet Montgomery will enchant Justin Hartley on NBC’s This Is Us.

The actress will recur on the freshman dramedy as an alluring and intense love interest for Hartley’s character, frustrated sitcom actor Kevin.

Montgomery’s Erin is described as a talented and tart-tongued theater actress “whose fierce commitment to ‘honesty’ sucks poor Kevin into her darkness,” EW.com reports. This Is Us premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10/9c; Montgomery first appears in Episode 4.

Per NBC’s official synopsis, This Is Us — which also stars Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson) and Chrissy Metz (American Horror Story) — centers on a group of people share the same birthday and “more than anyone would expect” as their “life stories intertwine in curious ways.”

Montgomery currently headlines WGN America’s Salem, which returns for Season 3 in November, and previously starred in Entourage, Made in Jersey and Human Target.

    I enjoyed her in Dancing on the Edge, which just finished airing on PBS. Glad I’ll be seeing more of her so soon.

    what does this mean for Salem?

  3. Kevin K says:

    WOW! Janet Montgomery’s character on This Is Us feels the love for Adam Newman from Y&R.

    I hated her on Human Target. Ruined my show :(

      Are you sure you aren’t thinking of Indira Varma? I thought Janet’s character was a welcome infusion of youthfulness to Human Target, which sort of had an overabundance of jaded/grumpy old man archetypes before she arrived.

    Glad she’ll be on TV more this fall. Excited to see her on the show and on Salem’s new season!

    I’m ready to hear the spoiler for This Is Us already. Maybe yesterday.

    I hope Janet isn’t leaving Salem. Love her as Mary Sibley. I hope the show doesn’t go off. Salem is the best.
