"A Bad Moms Christmas," the sequel to "Bad Moms," has cast Justin Hartley for a sexy role. The "This Is Us" star plays an erotic dancer.
According to Deadline, Hartley plays the character named Ty Swindle in "A Bad Moms Christmas." He is a fit and handsome man who works as a firefighter by day. However, the sincere Swindle works as an erotic dancer at night.
Swindle's charm catches the attention of one of the mothers. He and Carla immediately become friends when they meet during a waxing appointment. This is by far all the details revealed about Hartley's character in "A Bad Moms Christmas." Further details about his role in the movie remain under wrap. Perhaps he ends up as Carla's love interest in the film since they share an instant connection.
Hartley confirmed his involvement in "A Bad Moms Christmas" on his Twitter page. "Excited to join this talented and hilarious cast!" wrote the 40-year old star of "This Is Us." Hartley joins the original casts Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, who reprise their role as the three mothers Amy, Kiki and Carla, respectively.
"A Bad Moms Christmas" follows the three women as they cope with the arrival of their respective mothers for the holidays. It remains unclear how Hartley's Swindle factors into the story of the sequel.
Hartley's involvement in "A Bad Moms Christmas" comes after he expressed his willingness to strip off for the camera. According to People, the actor said that he is open to appearing nude in a movie or TV show, as long as the story calls for it. Hartley's admission came when asked why he has not appeared naked in "This Is Us" unlike his co-star Milo Ventimiglia.
Perhaps, Hartley finally strips naked in "A Bad Moms Christmas." After all, he also plays an exotic dancer in the movie.
