justin hartley the cw upfront 'Smallville' and 'Emily Owens' star Justin Hartley stops by 'Melissa and Joey'CW fan favorite Justin Hartley just lined up his next gig, and Zap2it has the exclusive scoop!

“Melissa and Joey” has tapped the former Green Arrow to guest star as Melissa Joan Hart’s new boyfriend, Noah, on Season 3 of the ABC Family comedy.

Things get complicated when Noah’s apartment floods and he’s forced to move in with Mel a little too early on in their relationship. It’s particularly awkward since Joe (Joey Lawrence), Mel’s live-in nanny, is always around.

Hartley, best known for his work as Oliver Queen on “Smallville” and the dreamy Dr. Will Collins on “Emily Owens, M.D.,” has also had memorable guest appearances on “Hart of Dixie,” “Castle,” and “Chuck.”

“Melissa and Joey” returns on May 29 with brand new episodes. Look for Hartley to appear in the latter half of the season. As we revealed exclusively, another CW mainstay, Trevor Donovan, will be guest-starring early in the season as yet another potential love interest for Mel.
